Humans of New York has published a series of stories and photographs on paediatric cancer.
The content was gathered from the Pediatrics Department of Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center and includes quotes such as:
“All doctors have those patients who sit on our shoulder.”
“My biggest challenge? Two words for you: third grade. It’s kind of like second grade but harder.”
“A big part of a nurse’s job is translation.”
“And the hardest part about being an oncologist is trying to be patient.”
“I got cancer in the summer when the pools were opening.”
“So I’m afraid all the time. And that fear tends to keep me on the attack.”
