Cancer Center Campaign
My grandpa gave the best hugs. His favorite job was being a grandpa. He would brag about my sister and me to anyone who would listen. Every year he made my birthday cake and his famous raspberry jam.
My grandpa was diagnosed with terminal cancer in the spring. When I came home from college, I wanted to be there with him so I decided my summer job would be to help with his daily care during treatment.
Even though I just turned 21, the Overlake staff treated me like the other adults. Thanks to Kelly and the staff, I felt we were prepared to make the tough end-of-life decisions as a family.
I am proud of my grandpa’s fight. I wasn’t ready for him to go but I take comfort that he was in great hands.
