Facing the CANCER

Philippines

When we heard of the word cancer. The thing that comes on our mind is death. I am not a cancer patient. But this kind of illness runs in my family. I lost my grandfather with Prostatic cancer in 2007. Prior to that year, we lost her eldest daughter with Lupus cancer. In year 2008, we lost my mother's first cousin with breast cancer. And this year my mom was diagnose with Cervical cancer. I'm a registered nurse. But in spite of my knowledge into medical world. I am me. Typical in feeling of denial. And just like others, lots of 'whys'. But one thing I know as of the moment. Trust in HIM, lift it up to him for this is HIS will. Perhaps it is the most important thing, holding tighter to my faith. Facing cancer is easy when you have HIM in your heart. Acceptance and making every seconds count. After all our life is temporary in this world.

These days, I think that everyone is at risk of cancer. With the environment, lifestyle, and the food even, no wonder that cancer can happen to anyone. You are right that we just have to look up to him and let him do his ways. Everything is a possibility in this world. We just have to hope for the best and face the tough times if they come for us.

Yes that's true. Lifestyle, environment and foods has now a huge factor with cancer issues. Indeed trusting in HIM is best thing we can do when that crisis come along.

So many members of my family have been stricken with cancer over the years. i lost my husband to this horrible travesty almost 5 years ago. if cancer could be wiped out right now, I would be the first one to throw a party!
