Double jeopardy

That some people may think of cancer as contagious, I had suspected all along. But to actually hear it being said was different – it was confirmation. An old lady I met at the hospital undergoing treatment for cancer was not taken care of by her sisters who believed that they would also contract the disease if they took care of her, for instance, by washing her clothes. And these people who believe so are not illiterate either.

This is unfortunate indeed and I believe being double jeopardy for the patient – first, to having being sentenced to the disease itself and then having to face lack of care from the family. Wish there was more awareness.
