Most people who realize that I work with people who have cancer patients, are quite sympathetic towards me. Their logic is that most patients would die with cancer. The problem is that most people never hear about the brighter side of oncology care. They rarely hear about patients who are cured and live long and fulfilling lives. They never hear about women and men, who go through chemotherapy and go on to have children and families.
Oncology is a good field. I can cure some. Give hope to others. Care for all of them.
