Inside the Understanding Room

Kathie named it and I was in it tonight.

It was the “Night of Remembrance” at the Kimmel Cancer Center at Johns Hopkins and it was a packed house.  Close to 500 grieving care-givers were there, all of them remembering a loved one who had walked those halls, fought the cancer fight and lost the cancer fight.

It was the “Understanding Room.”  WE all felt the same emotions, we just felt them for our own special person.  WE were all leaning on each other, but stood separately. 

Cancer brought us all together just as cancer had divided us. 

The “Understanding Room” was standing room only tonight.
