When my mother was diagnosed with Cancer many years ago I was devastated and petrified, not really knowing how to talk to her about it. Since then I have made it a point to look at this horrible disease from the patient’s perspective. Here is a repost of a story from Yahoo Health listing the 25 truths Survivors want us to know.

We are daughters, and mothers, and teachers, and doctors. People who stand in line with you at the grocery store, still get mad about stupid things like missing the subway, and want to talk about mundane stuff like the new season of Scandal.”
