You know they're they're -- is that the is that the most rewarding possible feeling and in life.

That was the best day like in those of the simple things that we talk about all the events and we talk about all those big things but sometimes that's just the real simple. Things that we do inside the clinic from what the nurses accused sort of make the kids feel. Safe when they're accepting of what happened there. Administering chemotherapy.

Is make cancer treatment fun. And I don't I can't it's done this for a couple years I still can't comprehend it but when -- -- these patients come up and you asked them what -- think about the Jimmy Fund and responses not. I hated their response site I don't like going their by their responses. It's fun. I have friends there the -- lady Lisa is my favorite or Jennifer is my favorite. That's what you guys Q would you do with the dollars the people of donated all of this to date we have got to can. I'm leaving them still being treated. Benoit day expecting it to do refunding. A justice into too much talk about it of the ages sounds like such an oxymoron of -- cancer treatment fun but that's. That's pretty much the wheat fields whenever you go to Jimmy Fund when I was to -- -- and I mean when I met Lisa. I was though -- it was conducted after the those things have not changed it it was weird because I did have to miss school uniting go to school and in night -- -- like that very much. They get to this code is different but. At that time I didn't like missing school. But the fact of the matter is on Mondays which weren't -- my days to go to the clinic. While at the end of the day it was pretty crappy I mean I felt awful and that -- the ride home was terrible. After the chemo treatment it was awful but while I was there Monday -- was that was pretty much like the idea that we eat it because I knew I was going with someone who I was gonna have. More fun than I did whenever you know when I was at home and at home could go out and outside my mom wouldn't let me go outside and -- she was afraid that it earned. I have all the activities and -- when I get the Jimmy Fund I literally had my best day of the week. Going to the hospital going to the Jimmy Fund that it made it's it's said very hard thing to explain.
