Hi everyone. My name is Maria and I live in Chicago.
The reason I joined is that for quite some time now, I've been taking care of my aunt who's suffering from cancer. She's lost her strength and while she's not bedridden, it's hard for her to move around on her own - she has other health issues and paired with the therapies she's been undergoing they have made it much harder for her. I moved in with her for the time being not only to help physically but also to be there for her, because it's not easy facing something like this. I feel like she's being as positive and strong as possible most of the time, but I'd still like to meet people who have gone through similar things so that I could learn how to make it easier for her.
