I remember her walking in and I knew something was not right. I didn’t know her aside from brief interactions at the counter or as I made rounds….but I was seeing a person that was in shock.
I asked if she was ok, she broke down for a split second and disclosed that she had just been diagnosed with cancer.
The next day she came in after her first treatment.
Somewhere along the way I just felt I needed to be there for her, she hasn’t disclosed the details and I haven’t probed….but I have found a new friend and I’ll do what I can to be there for her.
