A Cancer Patient's Perspective: The Importance of Saying "Thank you" and "I Love You"

In the fall of 2011, I  recorded a video in response to a health advocacy group's request for tips for other cancer patients. At the time, I was between rounds of Daunarubicin, and too fatigued to figure out how to email such a large file to the video editor of the website. I came across the clip on my iPad this weekend.

As I watched the exhausted, subdued woman in the video rambling on, I couldn't help but shudder. But it does serve as a good reminder for all of us cancer patients/survivors to say, "Thank you" and "I love you."
