What is up with the bell???
I’m sure the bell is a big thing for kids with cancer.1
@StarGirl Oh that bell!!
I have heard of it but not sure if my hospital had it or not? I was abruptly stopped due to PN so went out without fanfare after chemo, like @Zoffiel I was happy to get out, missed the staff though.
At my hospital after radiation we put our thumbprint on a canvas in the shape of a tree, what struck me was how many thumbprints there were already. Especially when I learnt they were from only the last eight months, sobering.2
There was a bell where I had my radiation treatment. I was offered the chance to ring it but politely declined. For me it was because my treatment was quite a lonely experience. The staff were lovely but I didn't bond with anyone. I also had no friends family or support person with me to celebrate or acknowledge my achievement. Doing it alone just felt like I was reinforcing my loneliness and I didn't want to draw attention to myself. I just wanted it to be over so I could go home.1
Thank you @Nefertari . That is very kind of you.
