    Saying Goodbye To Dad - Part Two.

    This morning July 15th 2013 at 08:15 AM my father passed away after three years of battling cancer. After his spirit had left his withered husk, he was left with a smile on his face, which gave us all a measure of relief. The medical staff wondered how he had managed to hold on...

    I just don't know what to feel,

    and I feel stupid when talking about it. My brother (leukemia patient) is now progressively thinner and weaker, I'm not used to seeing him like this and I just really want him back. I HATE cancer.

    “A flip of the coin” is the phrase

    that ran through my head as I sat in the doctor’s office on Friday. As a kid, there was that one guy in my class who could flip a quarter perfectly in the air so that the light would catch a perfect shine on the coin every time. During any coin toss, we all agreed he would be...

    My best friend is fighting hard.

    We both found each other at the treatment centre and she became my best friend since. Both of us has been in remission and relapsed since. I just got to know she is taking it for the worse now. I'm so scared of losing her now.

    Let me explain something here.

    Cancer is serious and has SERIOUSLY become an issue in our society...but why is it so much more prevalent NOW? It is a proven fact that Cancer thrives in an environment that is low-alkaline and poorly oxygenated. It feeds on processed sugars, starches, artificial sweeteners...

    It has stolen the light from him. Someone who was once the life of the party. Nothing got him down. Now he hides from his family ashamed and angry at what this disease has done to him. And who could blame him. I can't imagine everything hes going threw and feeling. Today he had...

    Saying Goodbye To Dad...

    I've just come from hospital, where my father is fighting a losing battle against the big C. I needed a breather. Isn't cancer a *****? It robs people of their dignity and reduces them to a state of defencelessness, much like an infant or even worse. It's horrible to see him...

    Got another treatment of chemo today.

    I thought it was one of my better sessions however it has me confused about the simplest things. I just cried because I didn't understand why all sides of a plastic lid didn't have a triangle tab. I felt bad for the unfairness in it. Seriously?
