Cancer makes you realize the gift of time

A touching family story with lessons for all of us. My mother’s cancer gave us that opportunity, my father’s heart attack did not. Quote:

If there is anything that oncology makes us realize, it is the gift of time. Although cancer cuts life short for the majority, it usually will provide for time at the end of life. As oncologists, we should not rob our patients of the time at the end of life, the opportunity for closure, and the chance to “say what needs to be said”. It is an opportunity not afforded to many others, and it was probably one of the most important lessons my dad taught me.
