  1. I found this so very moving O. I have had not much experience with illness, other than my own, which i don’t think of as an illness, its just part of me and I live with it day to day, but in the end it will get me. A good friend recently had a cancer scare but it was benign. My neighbour and great friend has recently been diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease. As we age I am beginning to see more and more friends dealing with a variety of life threatening illnesses. I like the purpose of that video, everyone deserves the best care they can get. I have written about caring for my dad as he died, he died with great dignity even though his last days were very uncomfortable for us all. But on the day of his death he left me quietly, it was like he waited for me to arrive before looking his best and moving on. I was very grateful for that privilege of holding his hand as he died. As I watch that video it makes me grateful for the life I have had, the healthy children I have that I am able to do what I do. Thanks so much for sharing this with me.

  2. As summerstommy2 has said…a very moving video. If we could all just stop for a moment and really see that we are all in these places, and just give a little smile here, a word of encouragement there, it would make it just a little easier for those that are going through those difficult times. Smiles do not cost anything, nor words, but the power that they have is huge and can make the difference between facing a fear or a hurt on our own, to having the strength to face a difficult time or even pass on to another to give them the strength to help someone else. Thank you for the share Otrazhenie, this is beautiful and from a heartfelt place. Namaste

    There is a cancer treatment facility that I used to bring my late father to in which I spent a fair amount of time. On every occasion I would witness the sadness and courage that many families experienced within those walls. It, frankly, was heart-wrenching much like this video.
    Years removed my girlfriend now works at this same facility and sees daily the trials of terminal illness. This can be a hard life and in no small way it is from these experiences that we have learned to remain kind.
    Thank you for sharing.
