Moments Of Connection

Moments Of Connection

Nita, on Friendships

Well, Christmas time came and I was in the lobby and one of the nurses came out and she said somebody in the back wants to see you, well, I had no idea who it might be. But it was him, he had brought me a Christmas gift and I said why did you do that? And he said, because you’re the only person who‘s ever come in my room and talked to me and I’ve been coming here a long time.

Laura, on Friendships

Support is feeling like they get me. That they get the impact that I’m dealing with a lot of information. That I’m trying to plan out what’s going to happen over the next several months. There’s a lot of unknowns and I’m okay with that but I need to prepare to make sure that I have enough support.

Ricki, on Parenting

Amanda had my first grand baby who will be a year old August 16th. Her name is Belle. She is my heart.

Erika, on Lifestyle

If I get invited to something or I'm doing something and I really don't want to do it, I don't anymore. So if I'm spending time with you, if you're part of my day, it's because I want it to be that way, not because I feel like it has to be.

Nurse Claire, on Body

Well maybe you can still do those things, maybe it’s not you just alone on a paddle board, maybe you're out there with your partner in a double person Kayak or something like that.

Midori, on Body

Again, nobody cared, nobody looked at me weird. I think maybe if I was not in New York City, if I was anywhere else maybe the style would have been a little bit drastic, maybe a little butch or something. I think there was an article in the New York Times that came out around that time, it was the hip hairstyle of the moment, and I was like, 'Alright, well this is it.'
