Friends can help prevent cancer…

February 28, 2011 by  

I am not the type to forward chain emails. But this one cuaght my attention and touched my heart. It was sent by one of my very good friends who is fighting cancer – for the second time.

Every month is Breast Cancer Awareness Month…….

Give this heart to everyone you don’t want to
lose in ‘2011 including me if you care.

‘Be kinder than necessary because everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.’

A sharp tongue can cut your own throat.

If you want your dreams to come true, you mustn’t oversleep.

Of all the things you wear, your expression is the most important.

The best vitamin for making friends…… B1.

The happiness of your life depends on the quality of your thoughts.

the heaviest thing you can carry is a grudge..

One thing you can give and still keep…is your word.

You lie the loudest when you lie to yourself.

If you lack the courage to start, you have already finished.

One thing you can’t recycle is wasted time.

Ideas won’t work unless ‘ You’ do.

Your mind is like a parachute…it functions only when open.

The 10 commandments are not a multiple choice.

The pursuit of happiness is the chase of a lifetime!

It is never too late to become what you might have been.

Life is too short to wake up with regrets.. So love
the people who treat you right.. Forget about the
ones who don’t. Believe everything happens for a reason.
If you get a second chance, grab it with both hands. If
it changes your life, let it. Nobody said life
would be easy, they just promised it would be
worth it.

Friends are like balloons;
once you let them go, you might not get them
back. Sometimes we get so busy with our own
lives and problems that we may not even notice
that we’ve let them fly away. Sometimes we are so
caught up in who’s right and who’s wrong that we
forget what’s right and wrong.. Sometimes we just
don’t realize what real friendship means until it
is too late. I don’t want to let that happen so
I’m going to tie you to my heart so I never lose

this to all your friends including me and see
how many you get back. Even send it to your
balloons that you think have flown away forever.
You may be surprised to see it return. 


Thank you for being in my life!!!

A tribute to a friend who lost her battle against cancer

Filed under CANCER

A few months ago, I wrote a post about 2 friends who were battling cancer.

One friend died a few weeks ago. And I didn’t even know about it until this weekend. She lost her battle to cancer. She was diagnosed with stage 3 non-small cell lung cancer last year in December and was given 6 months to live. She lived for 10 months. Hers is a very sad case because she never smoked, she lived a healthy lifestyle, and she wasn’t even overweight. She is the cancer patient with the right to ask: why me?

Unfortunately for my friend, she exhibited severe allergic reaction to chemotherapy and many anti-cancer drugs that they had to be stopped. She used alternative medicine instead.

When I receive sad news like this, 2 things come to mind:

My lack of effort in cheering her up during the last few months. I only visited her a couple of times, as I always came up with the excuse of distance and time constraints.

Compared to what another friend has done for her, my efforts were laughably little. The said lady has a 4-month old baby whom she regularly had to take with her on her regular visits to the cancer patient’s home and the clinic.

My own mortality. My friend was in her 40s and left behind a husband and a 13-year old son. Her death reminds me of my own mortality and what the fate of my children would be in the event of my death.

Years ago, news of death only concerned the peers of my parents: Nowadays, it is people of my own age, of my generation who are getting sick and dying.

As I wrote in a previous post:

We seldom appreciate how important our mom, our dad, our wife, our husband, our partner, our child, our sister, our brother, our friend to us until he or she is not around, whether temporarily or permanently.

Sad that I didn’t pay attention to what I wrote then.

I am glad to say that my other friend is responding quite well to chemotherapy and this is really good news because this is her second fight with brain cancer. Her tumor recurred last year. But this doesn’t mean to say I should take her for granted. She is just a phone call away…So here I go…
