Last week I did my Hospice clinical rotation, a very humbling experience indeed.
I spent about 45 minutes talking to a patient named John, who was a year younger than me and dying of cancer. John will not see November.
John was wearing a LiveStrong bracelet on his left wrist. It's kind of funny. When these bracelets first hit the scene a few years back, I think most people wore them to be fashionable and in their mind, be linked to Lance somehow.
But right in front of me was John, the real deal. A man who lost the fight.
I'll wear my LiveStrong bracelet with a little more thought from now on.
