Catherine's Assessment

Who I am

I have cancer

I rate the pain

It's hard to describe

My dog is good company

My sister is a Godsend

My husband has not been well

Catherine's Assessment

Catherine, a 66 year old wife, mother, and grandmother, has lung cancer. She has faced severe pain as well as complications from treatment of her pain.

If it hurts I'm going to tell somebody about it. I mean, that's what they are there for. If there is something they can give me to help it, I want that help. I don't think I'm going to keep it to myself. Some people say tough guys stick it out. No way. I'm no hero.
