what is life?

"How are you related to the patient?" The doctor asked me. After I answered, he says, "Okay I must tell you, that the survival rate for this type of tumour is very low. I haven't told him yet. But you must know, understand and decide. I suggest you read up and think out everything before you take a decision. It is going to cost you a bit too."

This is the first time I have been given such grave news. When you know that it could be just a matter of time... you feel helpless and small... yet you know you still have to go ahead and get the best treatment possible.

Hope and confidence are strange things. They give us this immeasurable strength which is actually capable of miracles.

May you find the strength to fight, and hope. For one thing a person in such condition doesn't want to see is despair on the faces of the loved one.

Best wishes. Stay well.
