When a friend or an extended family is sick, it’s very important to lend a hand and to show support because they go thru’ so much during times like that. No one wants to get sick nor feel sick – or do they want to trouble anyone but any kind of illness is very taxing not only to the person that is ill but also to the entire family and friends – especially if you have Mesothelioma cancer or any kind of cancer.
My grandmother died of cancer when I was very young, she was in the hospital for months – while my aunt on the other hand died very quickly of cancer. It was pretty hard on us all when they died, the shock, being angry and not having enough rest because we had to visit them twice everyday was pretty taxing. We didn’t get the support we wanted when we were kids, therefore, when a friend or family member is ill this way, I try my best to do whatever I can to support them. Food for the family, taking turns to visit them in the hospital or babysitting the kids – or doing laundry for the family, cleaning the house or checking if they needed bills to be paid or things to be mended. Yes, I do all that – some said it’s crazy but I don’t think it is – I think it’s most important to lend a helping hand in times like that. What about you? would you go beyond your call of duty to help a friend and an extended family?
