I believe God uses cancer as a way for His glory to shine on a fallen world. How? One of the ways is the front line of those involved in radiation treatments.
The front line includes the doctors, nurses, radiology technicians, and receptionists.
These specialists have daily contact with cancer patients and, whether they realize it or not, are a special class of God’s servants.
Fear of the unknown raised my anxiety level the first day of my scheduled treatments. Nevertheless, the anxiety fled when I walked into the waiting room of the radiation treatment center. The soft and soothing glow of fluorescent lights illumined the spotless and organized atmosphere. Nothing was out of place.
One day a gentleman told me this was his fiftieth treatment.
After a short wait, one of God’s smiling servants dressed in a soothing soft pastel uniform, asked me to follow her into the inner cavern of the treatment center.
We entered a large room where a doctor, nurse, and technicians waited. One of the technicians asked me to lie down on a gurney-like table. It sprouted from a huge radiation machine that seemed to grow from the ceiling in the room.
In a semi-circle, the table moved from one position to another until it found the correct angle prescribed for my particular treatment. Technicians programmed that position’s code into the radiology machine.
