Great post from fellow CML’er Cadence Grace who is preparing for a transplant.
We all know what it’s like to be the one who is struggling. The people around us struggle too, desperately wanting to make it better for us. They say things like, "at least you are alive," "whatever doesn’t kill you, makes you stronger," "You can fight this!," "You got this!" "God wouldn’t give you anything you couldn’t handle," or the worst one: "Oh, leukemia?? Ya, I once worked with a guy who died from leukemia. Oh, but that’s not going to be you." [Eye roll] When terrible things happen to the ones you care about, there is often nothing that can be said to make it better, and you don’t need to try. All that’s needed is a hug, or a light touch on the arm to let that person know you are there. Just one simple action speaks more than anything that can ever be said. Right?
