Social support for cancer patients – Shaden’s Story
In Amman, Jordan we meet Shaden who started chemotherapy with she was 8 years old and diagnosed with Leukemia.
“It was a hard period. The first years we were going to the hospital every day, as for Shaden the hardest thing was the hair falling out,” says Shaden’s father Suhail Abu Shbayek.
The psychological well being of palliative care patients is paramount to those working in the field. But it is not an easy road, especially when there are over 4500 new cancer patients each year in Jordan.
