Our life with cancer. As I sit here writing this, my husband John Smith, also a Paladin employee, is fighting every day with stage four palliative lung cancer. Doctors have informed us that unfortunately his diagnosis was caught too late and how much time he has left is up to God.
John joined Paladin back in October 2015 as an on-call Security Officer. In December 2015, I took him into emergency as he was experiencing dizzy spells. Doctors treated him for what they thought was vertigo. In February of this year (2016), our lives turned upside down with one simple word - cancer. That day we cried in each other’s arms as we danced in the rain.
We have accepted that his time is limited and we are trying to make the best of each day. We are thankful for the good days and persevere through the not so good ones. We have been spending as much time as we can with family and friends; living, laughing, and loving.
It is now April, Daffodil Month, and John would like me to share with you on some of the reasons why donating helps those with Cancer. Since being diagnosed, John has received the best of care from the healthcare industry - from the Doctors, staff at the hospital, the Cancer Agency here in the North, the daily nurses that come to see him at home, the medications required, and the equipment needed to provide comfort as he progresses through his illness. This would not be possible without donations.
We want to thank our Paladin Family for all the love and support as we take one day at a time.
- John & Lisa
Our thoughts are with John & Lisa, who are a true representation of our Paladin Family. Your bravery and willingness to share is truly inspiring to our teams across the country.
