Two years ago, I organized an auction called “Let’s Do Something Now” to benefit associations helping young adults with cancer. And I thought, while I can’t organize an auction right now, I’d like to do something good 🙂
I have treatment on Monday (maintenance immunotherapy treatment after autologous stem cell transplant in October). And for the first time ever, due to the restrictions at the hospital and cancer center, the Chemical Engineer won’t be able to come with me. Since diagnosis in October 2017, he’s been with me at all my treatments. And I know that makes me lucky. One, that he is such an amazing and supportive husband (yes Alex, you’re the best ;-)), and two, that his bosses and colleagues enabled him to be there. And I know everyone at the cancer center and I know the procedures and how everything works. It’s so much harder for the patients who are just getting diagnosed or who don’t know what is happening with their treatments due to the current situation.
And it reminds me again how nurses, doctors, techs and all hospital workers have been supportive and amazing throughout. And it also reminds that stem cell transplant patients probably can’t have visitors right now and this must be so hard. I know my parents and Alex’s visits helped me tremendously.
So, I was wondering if you’d like to send messages (short messages, encouraging letters, videos) or drawings (by taking a picture of the drawings) to the people working there and/or to the patients in the stem cell unit.
- Send the messages or pictures of drawings or videos to my email: firstname.lastname@example.org – you can also upload them here (https://forms.gle/rY8XXQtpt9GPzzW16)
- Let me know if I can also upload them to my website 🙂
THANK YOU! ❤
