"I'm sitting in Jamaica Hospital in Queens, fidgeting uncomfortably in a tan leather chair beside my son, Jerami. Once again, he overexerted himself playing basketball with my oldest, Jalen, and now he's hospitalized with a fever. I don't want to deny him a normal childhood or treat him like has to live in a bubble. His cancer does that enough, but I don't like seeing him in a hospital bed hooked up to machines, writhing in pain, either."
