Being diagnosed with cancer and having 2 tumours removed within a period of 2 months apart in April and June 2014 was not easy to digest but I had to make a choice and giving up was certainly not one of them. Self-pity was also not a choice and I have decided to make it public by sharing it with my friends and family on Facebook as part of my own healing process. More and more people are diagnosed with cancer on a daily basis due to our eating habits. For more information on healthy and nutritional foods visit:
My personal choice was easy – I want to LIVE LIFE every second, every minute and every hour and besides the latter, I personally have so many things that I still want to do and to achieve in my LIFE – Thus giving up is not in the cards.
Whilst undergoing treatment at the Little Company of Mary’s Oncology Department I soon realised that each person reacts differently to the shock and treatments and I had a lengthy discussion with my GP and Oncologist about the life span of people diagnosed with cancer.
Their response was mutual, quite simple and yet logical – For some patients the shock and the treatments are simply too much and after 2 months they just give up on the treatments, give up on LIFE and most importantly give up on HOPE.
The idea of giving HOPE to people also diagnosed with cancer was born in the form of LIVE LIFE. You can follow these motivational and inspiration messages sourced from several sites by clicking on the following link:
DON’T GIVE UP ON LIFE:
Sometimes God breaks our spirit to save our souls. Sometimes He breaks our heart to make us whole. Sometimes God allows pain so we can be stronger. Sometimes God sends us failure so we can be humble. Sometimes God allows illness so we can take better care of ourselves. Sometimes God takes everything away from us so we can learn the value of everything He gave us…
Undergoing Radiotherapy to prevent the tumour from growing again was quite scary and the after effect is a burning and painful sensation but necessary. Unfortunately it does have its negative side effects, but it’s a small price to pay.
