After receiving the terrible news that her mother had stage 4 pancreatic cancer, this girl automatically knew what she had to do.
This medical student dropped out of school to focus on taking care of her mother who was burdened by medical procedures, hospice workers, helpers, and countless medication.
“I decided to take a year off from medical school and spend the time with her, and I just feel like I want to grasp at every moment I can, really. A typical day of caring for my mom usually includes preparing meals, running errands, grocery shopping, and picking up prescriptions. I work a lot behind the scenes organizing the nursing, a nursing assistant to come and help us,” says Hannah Roberts.
You have to admit, it is a noble thing to do. It is not something anyone can do without hesitation.
Seeing a close family member suffer from such horrible situation is so painful that people often can’t imagine themselves going through the same thing. But human as we are, love and care will always prevail during the hardest moments of our family.
Being there when they need us the most is probably the greatest gift anyone can give.
They need all the help they can get. What’s important is that we do everything we can to help them cope with the tough situation they are facing.
