In her words

Mary's Experience

"Every time I went for my treatments I was surrounded by three to five friends or family members. But, week after week I saw others with no one there to support them, knowing what the night would bring. While our disease was the same, the recliners we sat in were the same, the chemo was the same...but their situations seemed so much worse because they had to bear it alone."
