My Father died from Colon cancer when I was nine, something a lot of people don’t know about me. As a child I remember watching him hurting and worrying over the struggles that my mother went through working three jobs to take care of our finances along with three young children and a husband with cancer. Making it to all his appointments, our parent teachers meetings and still finding time to tuck us in bed at night. It was a sad, bad situation and I applaud her for carrying us through it. Now my mom Ruth Walker is carrying this load again gracefully and she has a calling to help others through their times of grief and struggles. If it is with in our grasp to help then we should. We should all find it within us to help those who struggle, because there is always someone with harder situations than we have. I believe in her dream of having a emergency childcare center central to the many cancer centers, she had to walk the halls of the cancer center with us as children, the youngest being two. For a child to see so much illness it was hard, so let us save some of the pain that these families endure.
