I don’t know how many patients have mentioned about people begging for money when they are going through treatments, when they don’t know if they are going to live or die. It is in such poor taste. They are grieving over their disease and someone wants something from them. They haven’t gotten over the physical and emoitonal hurdle.
Patients are unsure of their outcome, unsure of their treatments and the side effects, as well as what tommorrow will bring to them or their families.
I write about this today because two patients told me about it this week alone.
