Sick kids inspire this woman.

An aunt, after visiting her very sick, 4-year-old nephew in the hospital while he is being treated for brain cancer, comes away with awe for the patients and new perspective on her life..
I’ve just come back from visiting my 4-year-old nephew in the hospital in Denver. He has brain cancer and is undergoing very rigorous, unpleasant, painful treatments. After spending 3 days on his floor, with all sorts of sick children, ages 2 to 16, all I can say is, I’m in awe of their courage. I was blown away by their cheerfulness, stoicism and the kind helpfulness I saw them give to each other. I will try hard never to complain again about the small annoyances that have preoccupied my mind in the past!! What a bunch of fantastic, brave kids! Count your blessings, people!
