Now, there are three people constantly on my mind:
- my sister - awaiting for results of her PET scan, after 6 cycles of chemo,
- my good blogger-friend, Raden Galoh - battling it in physical pain,
- my ex-student - whose father (also my ex-schoolmate's father and ex-colleague's husband) has been diagnosed with 'it'.
Some people are heavily drugged to be numbed of physical pain, although the attack thus becomes more spiritual.
Cancer is an emotional and spiritual wake-up call. Sometimes it's an early warning, a slow reminder that tempts the person to hit the snooze button in automaticity. Yes, we are only human.
Most people are given a second chance, to which are taken in a variety of ways. There are those who survive, believing that a certain product 'helped'; hence He wills the person to draw testimonies and become prosperous through the product. There are people who are blessed and take the opportunity to repent and make the most out of the remnants of life.
My dream is to run a cancer foundation. May Allah help me with this intention.
