Although every day is different, I always finish work knowing that I made a difference to someone’s life today. This may involve being a listening ear or a shoulder to cry on, or helping people by offering some information or advice about support services. In doing my job, I try to remember that our Members are never diagnosed alone – their diagnosis affects their spouse or partner and family and friends as well. Their whole world has been turned upside down.
Most importantly, I have learned so much from our Members, such as how to find the silver linings in every situation, see the beauty of daily life and how to notice things I have often been too busy to enjoy. It is certainly a rewarding job that has changed my appreciation for life.
