In September 2019, I was hospitalized for anemia and spent 5 days there. That’s when all of this hit me.  I’m not the only one going through cancer.  Cancer affects so many lives — statistically, I believe 1 out of 3 people are diagnosed each year and it does not know any boundaries regarding race, religion and socio-economic situations.  From there, whether you’re the patient, the caregiver, the family member, the friend, the person who delivers the meal, the person who gives blood or the nurse who takes that blood, you are affected.  This is why it is important to spread the word and make sure people have CANCER AWARENESS. “.
