Childhood Cancer Facts:Cancer impacts the entire family.
Robbie’s sisters slept on hospital floors, chairs, and the pull out beds to be by his side. Actually anyone that spent the night with Robbie had almost no sleep, since he needed constant monitoring, blood work, medicine bags beeped to be changed…it was a three ring circus at night! HIs sisters gave up time from their jobs and friends. They helped him in and out of his wheelchair, bathroom, shower, and anything he needed. They distracted him, worked remotely, bought him special food, and supported us too. I can’t even list all that they did for their brother. This is very typical in cancer families. It impacts everyone.
