Sarah is much like any other mum; in that she tends to focus on her family before herself. It was only once Sarah could no longer bear the pain and fatigue that she went to see her doctor.
“When I found out I had cancer I started to panic, and then I became terrified, angry, and overloaded with emotions opposite to hope and joy. I was all alone.”
Sarah may not have a lot of time left to spend with her five children, but she is going to make the most of every single one of those seconds.
“No more tears, no more pain, I need to move on and look forward and be strong for my five children. I have so many things to do. I must keep going. I am a mother and I have a house to make a home.”
The support that Sarah receives from her Cancer Society nurse is vital to her sense of wellbeing as she navigates the difficulty of her cancer treatment and changes it has made on her life:
“I regularly phone Sarah just to see how she is, how she is coping and to ask if there is anything I can do to support her.” – Nurse Debs
It’s the routine checks like these, from an expert caring nurse who knows what the patient is going through that makes all the difference to the mental wellbeing of a cancer patient.
Please give generously today, to ensure that all mother’s facing cancer receive wrap around support from Cancer Society nurses, counselling referrals, and ongoing practical help.
