Easing the Pain

You can say I live in a family of cancer. My dad had cancerous skin lesions removed, my mom had her uterus removed after being diagnosed with uterine cancer. My sister underwent surgery after being diagnosed with thyroid cancer.

Yet when my mom was diagnosed with terminal lung cancer, Methodist was where we turned. She underwent radiation, and I could see a calming demeanor out of the radiology techs.

When her condition turned suddenly, it wasn't the doctors who came in for comfort. It was the nursing staff of 6S (Med/Surg-Oncology) who comforted us and helped us through the process. It was the staff who were there for us as my mom was placed on hospice, and we had her moved her to Hospice House.

It was the nursing staff of 6S (Med/Surg-Oncology) who comforted us and helped us through the process.

I couldn't say enough about the 6S staff. From the CNAs to the nurses, we had no doubt that my mom was in good hands, and was receiving the best care possible. I can't thank them enough for making the toughest of my family's life a little more bearable. They truly are the meaning of care.
