LUNG FORCE Heroes
I was the full time caregiver for my grandmother. She was diagnosed on August 1, 2014 and passed away February 17, 2015. She was diagnosed with small cell lung cancer. I took care of all of her medicines, doctor appointments. I also helped with walking and making meals. When she started chemo she had a hard time walking and would sometimes fall. I slept on her couch so I could see in her bedroom in case she fell out of bed. I helped her take baths and wash her car when it began to fall out.
Though we had some rough days, I am so grateful for the time I was able to spend with her!
