Even those who haven’t experienced cancer understand the impact of learning that you’re cancer-free. Photos of former patients ringing the bell, glowing with joy, or dancing in excitement will warm anyone’s heart. Drop that heartbreaking internet news for a bit and rejoice with these brave cancer survivors.
Ringing The Famous Bell
In hospitals, ringing the bell always signifies good news. Patients ring the bell to celebrate that they have ended their cancer treatment are beginning a life cancer-free. It’s no surprise that this is an emotional moment for several patients who have been in treatment for a long time.
