Want to appreciate the ocean? Go there with a cancer patient who may be seeing it for the last time. Dreading your next birthday? Sit and listen to a cancer patient talk about her next birthday party that she may not get to have. Think dance recitals are a hassle? Go with a parent whose child was released from the hospital. Upset at a sports team for a game loss? Look at the joy on the faces of a cancer family whose last care is whether a team wins or loses.
So easy to take life for granted… So important not to.
