This is the story of Norman McDonald who was diagnosed with prostate cancer and went on to receive radiation therapy treatment at Icon…
During my radiation therapy treatment at Icon Cancer Centre Gosford, I greatly appreciated the gift of treatment, the wonderful staff, and the companions with whom I shared the journey. Over the course of this experience I wrote three ‘essays’ for my family, encapsulating my journey. I would like to share these with others that might be going through a similar situation.
Day one of my treatment
I’ve just arrived home from day one of my radiation journey and I feel the need to share some of the day. The prompting to do this came to me as I drove to Gosford, with the realisation that I was making this journey physically alone.
