This is indeed a new world. When I was in my early 20s, and probably long after, the word “cancer” was not mentioned, especially to the patient. The protocol, for some reason, was to lie to the patient as long as possible.
Phyllis Bush, dear friend, founding board member of the Network for Public Education, and a retired teacher in Indiana who also founded the Northeast Indiana Friends of Public Education, has been fighting cancer head on. She may have fears, but she deals with them by writing about them. She holds nothing back.
Her courage gives all of us courage.
Kisses and hugs to Phyllis and her loyal friend Donna.
