Barbara Abernathy, Ph.D., CEO of the Pediatric Oncology Support Team, explains how she is inspired by her work with children who have cancer.

Abernathy is a cancer survivor herself, having had polycythemia vera (PV), myelofibrosis and acute myeloid leukemia (AML), and realizes that adults actually have a lot to learn from pediatric patients. Children, with or without cancer, tend to live in the moment.

Also, Abernathy also learned that sometimes, the term "hope" must be redefined. Hope may not always mean a longer life, but a better quality of life.
