Just working in medicine is tough.
Physically, mentally, spiritually.
Being with people living with cancer every day is the incomparable practice of oncology.
A day without high emotion is rare.
Tears hanging in all our souls.
Love can transform oncology.
Love of our shared humanity.
Love of being here now.
Cancer is the hardest and most relentless disease.
Being an oncologist can be the hardest and most relentless job.
Maintaining equanimity and joyfulness throughout is the locked door.
Love is the key.
Not just as an oncologist.
As a human being.
