Giving heals the heart
I support Chemo Buddies. When my daughter went through Chemo and radiation ,she thought she could handle it by herself and didn't want to put others out. Then her cancer came back ,and her sister Said Iam going to be your Chemo Buddie and I will be with you every step of the way.And she was.the 2 of them sat there in the Chemo room and said how could this be be made better? Then Karen said that man looks cold,go get him a blanket Jill. Or my throat is dry I need something to drink,see who else needs a drink.many patients go through Chemo alone,and after Karen saw the difference between being alone or having a Chemo Buddy ,She said no one should go through cancer along.and Jill worked hard to bring Chemo Buddies to be .Karen knew she couldn't beat her cancer ,but she left something great behind.
I volunteer as a Chemo Buddy ,I talk with the patients ,try to give them hope ,help them with needs, just serve them any way I can,maybe give them a warm blanket. Serve them lunch.
Be hind the scene I make blankets for them ,wash quilts and tie ribbons around them ,pick up lunches for them.
Because she lived and thought of others she left the world a better place.
I always wanted to help others ,and volunteer .l am now 77 years old and life couldn't be better. The more I do the more I can do. When you see how much the patients appreciate what you do ,you just want to do more. Life is good!
