Steven – Wisconsin
Steven explains how he felt isolated during his treatment. He discusses how he felt that the treatment areas were aimed more at making younger children feel more comfortable, which did not particularly help him, as he was 16 at the time of his diagnosis. He talks about how he became close to his nurse, who had a similar experience during his childhood, and went to every effort to make Steven feel more “normal” during his treatment. Steven now has a new perspective on life, and is trying to remain positive.
