When i was a child i grow up watching my grandfather have multiple stroke. He lost the ability to use his left side. He used to tell me " I'm grateful that someone is willing to help a old man like me". He was talking about his caregiver. He passed away when i was 12. When i was 13 my grandmother was diagnosed with 3 different cancers. I saw how sick she was getting from chemo and the cancers. I moved in with her to take care of her. I cooked, cleaned, helped her with hygiene, and kept her company so she wouldn't feel alone. what was a personal achievement that im proud of because i was all my grandmother had and im proud that i was able to make things easier for her.
