i so understand that you dont want to cheapen this Story with a Pairing and only want to put in some slight hints of SessKag or InuKag, the main Point of this Story is Rin and her will to fight against this stupid mean illness! and her parent Figur Sesshoumaru who has to try to stay strong for her and be there for her and may Need to accept that other like kagome -her mother and even his brother will be there for those two to go throught the stages
but the Spider shape i not understand did put naraku something in Rin that acctivated the cancer with the touch of Sesshoumarus youki...or is it a part of him that settled in her?

Loved the story. It touched my heart and almost didn't seem real.

It's not just leukemia that affects people so strongly, though the blood and lymph-borne illnesses are sometimes the hardest to deal with.
Anyone who has gone through cancer treatment is in danger of what is called a "secondary cancer", or a cancer caused by exposure to the treatments that cured the first cancer. In addition, the side effects from radiation and surgery will last the rest of the patients' lives. Added to that, the patient is now considered a "narcotics addict" by professionals and can only take certain pain medications in carefully prescribed doses for the rest of their lives or risk going through withdrawal (if they're lucky). And, depending on the type of cancer, there are a slew of OTC medications that are no longer a consideration. And that's with today's technologies.
More kids survive cancer and cancer treatments than ever before, and new developments happen every day. The doctors that dedicate their lives to treating cancer, especially childhood cancers, are the kindest and most patient people I have dealt with. Of course, I volunteer at a cancer hospital when I'm not going for checkups or other things myself, so I see a lot more than most people and have done a lot more research into what my options are and how each decision leads to a whole line of possible outcomes.
You wrote a great story. I enjoyed it. Yes, it's always nice when the main character lives, but she walked a hard path before and during and we, as readers and humans, like to see that sort of thing rewarded. It's the romantic in us; we want Life to be Fair.

Having been through chemotherapy as an adult, I can say that it is a scary and painful process. You actually simplified things quite a bit - leaving out the "permanent" PIC line, the amazing beeping attachment that goes with you everywhere during treatment and gets very noisy when it doesn't get it's way, and the constant influx of people poking at you, in one way or another.
I was lucky/unlucky enough to have radiation scheduled for the same time period, so I would go from one to the other. Not a good time for an adult, hell for kids. Though I have met some pretty tough kids while volunteering.
And yes, while you were 'icky', you skipped over some of the worst parts of it while hitting all the "highlights". You did a great job.
Thank you for being more accurate in your writing about the early stages of chemo than just about anyone has ever done - and TV and movies get it wrong *constantly*!

2 favourite things here: "So many bubbles..." I grinned like no tomorrow when I read that. Also, the unscrewing light bulbs was genius.

Awww... I like this story. So... Shiori inherited Kagome's saying of 'Sit' eh? Also, here's a guess. The black eye came from Inuyasha. Lol :)

This is the most heart warming story I have ever read. I never read non-romance but something told me to read this... I cried through most of it but it was beyond worth it. Thank you so much for sharing this with us.

CALLED IT, YES. Half-demon Rin!
"Rin was a very special girl-"
KA-BAM, down goes the doctor!
I did like that moment in the garden, it was nice to give Sesshoumaru some confirmation about the future like that. But why the sequel teaser right there at the end if you're not gonna write a second story? Sunny finds this quite cruel.
Oh well, I definitely enjoyed reading through that. Very good story. Now please allow me to go skulk through your profile and see if you have anything with the pairing I like D

"It means... HEEL! HEEL! HEEL!" That... entire section from the platyus' appearance to Kagome standing over Inuyasha and repeating the word... Oh god I loved that, it was directly from the canon, completely, I loved it...
Half-demon Rin. Gonna call it right now.
