Keep your hands clean, and don’t be afraid to ask your friends, family, and visitors to do the same. Because for something that’s supposed to be called a “journey,” you’ll be doing a lot of sitting down and waiting in hospitals. And since the last thing you need is more germs, take matters into your own hands and sanitize for your own sanity.
“Hand sanitizer became my best friend. I asked everyone who came to my house to use it on arrival. No germs were invited in; the cancer was already enough to manage.”
