So that's the plan for tonight.
Tomorrow should be full of editing my big research paper, rewriting parts of it, doing a bit more research. My paper is titled "The Psychosocial Effects on the Family of Pediatric Cancer". It's been very eye-opening to read the research and write the paper. One big surprise I found is the possible POSITIVE effects on the family of having a child with cancer. Of course, hearing that your child has cancer is never a positive experience, but the positive things that could possibly come out of the experience include: strengthening of family relationships, greater appreciation for life, and a child who is independent and responsible.
Of course, I'm sure that having a healthy child without those positive things completely outweighs the latter, but nonetheless, the paper has been interesting to write, and is something I have enjoyed researching and working on. My professor was surprised when I requested it as my topic, but I told her - the more people write about this topic and raise awareness that pediatric cancer actually exists and is something that is dealt with by every-day families, the more much-needed attention it will get!
So, with that, I'm off to shower and get ready for a fun night!
