I had an encouraging meeting on-campus this morning to discuss our family's experience, the painful isolation that cancer hospitalizations and treatment bring, long waiting times (16 hours in a waiting room for an ER gurney, 3 hours for a blood donation to be delivered on campus, 5 hours past appointment time to meet with the oncologist) and how to infuse family into the culture of treating the whole person. I was blown away to have letters of recommendation signed by every hematologist and BMT physician on-staff to deliver to the meeting. We are hopeful for some change eventually on-campus to benefit other families.
