Janice, an oncology nurse, recalls with colleague Nancy the solemn experience she shared with a cancer patient and her 20-year-old daughter. The patient requested to remain in the hospital because she didn’t want to die at home where her daughter lived. She wanted it to remain a happy place. Her wish was honored. Janice formed a compassionate bond, as the patient and her daughter found a sense of healing in the absence of a cure. Edit credit: Sean Collins. Animation: RockitWorks.
