Please friends, parents with children, employees...if you have a runny nose, a cough, know you have the full blown flu, or norovirus... Please wear a mask if you have to be out and about and especially wear one at the hospital, wash your hands and don't go out if you don't have too.
Please this not only protect others (your friends, family and children), it also protects cancer patients. All the treatment that Emily has been on and other cancer patients, their immune system is low. Emily May have a head full of hair, some weight on her body, but she still continues to fight hard to beat neuroblastoma, but has a low immune system and can get sick easily, so she may not look like other cancer patients.
Stay home if you are sick...wash, wash, wash, wash your hands and remember hand sanitizer doesn't get the nasty germs off, soap and water works best.
(Cancer patients with ports, broviac lines, central lines, etc when have a fever of 100.4 or more have to go inpatient and would require 24/48 hour stay. Emily has a port.)
