Sometimes I feel guilty because when I’m at the hospital for a month or more my sisters at home fight, a lot and I know a lot of it is because my mother isn’t there to help them with the tough stuff, and stress, I know it isn’t my fault but I stil think if I hadn’t got cancer, none of this would be happening.

    My twin brother has Leukemia and my two younger sisters are always fighting. I was always at home with them, trying to calm them down. It is hard being the sick one, I see what my brother goes though, and how badly he feels. There was a point when my brother was getting a bone marrow transplant, and I was home with my sisters all the time. They were constantly fighting, and I decided to do something to help them. I gave them each a journal to right in, and every night they say how they feel. We also started seeing a counselor as a family and one on one. We talk a lot more now, and it seems to help everything. I know it’s hard, but try not to feel too bad about it.
