My mom told us he was sick and was getting help from doctors. Our family was extremely grateful to find out that he beat cancer and could enjoy the rest of his life. I have also lost my grandpa due to lung cancer. It’s tough seeing someone in so much pain and knowing what they have but not having a clear understanding of what it is or what’s going on inside their bodies. What do I already know about it?
Johnny died at the young age of seventeen after a constant struggle to fight his brain tumor. When Johnny was first diagnosed with a brain tumor and Dr. Penfield confirmed it, John narrates that, “with everybody listening Penfield cut through all the euphemisms and said directly, 'Your child has a malignant glioma, and it will kill him.” (Gunther, 55). At this moment is when it is known that the cancer is real and he has a limited time to live. John Gunther said that “Cancer is a rebellion- a gangster outbreak of misplaced cells”(Gunther, 78).

Two or three years ago my mom was diagnosed with breast cancer. When she told me my first reaction was to cry and pray for my mom. It is a hurting feeling when you think you are going to lose the ones you love in any type of way. No matter if it’s thru a relationship or death. No one wants to lose
An experience I had involving ethics in relation to an interprofessional collaboration was in my present nursing case. Prior to me starting my patient a 13-year-old girl had a severe asthma attack and went into cardiac arrest, died and was brought back to life this past February. Although the EMTs were able to bring her back, she has been in a coma ever since.

The myth that I am writing this post assignment on is if drinking water actually helps one lose weight. As far as I have learnt in this module, one of the ways to lose weight is to eat healthily; exercise and lead a balanced lifestyle such as getting adequate sleep etc. The weight loss industry is one that is always thriving and money making, because losing weight is tough, it takes time and patience and at the current age and time, people just want everything fast and instant, e.g. fast food, technology is always changing everything is getting faster.
