I was recently told about a mother of eight children getting cancer and hiding it. I don't know what her reasons were for hiding her illness, but I am sure that there were many. Anywho, her family didn't know that she was sick. So one time one of her children took her to the doctors to get checked out, and the doctor asked this woman how she was feeling and then made references to the cancer. This was a shock to the child who then went and told the rest of the family. They finally concluded on the course of treatment that they were going to get for their mother, and she died two days later. If I had been put in the position of the children. I know that I would be deeply hurt and resentful towards the person that hid their illness from me. But on the other hand, I understand why one would hide an illness like that? In your opinion, is it wrong to hide illness?
