I think that in the modern day, there is not a single person who has not been directly or indirectly affected by cancer.
For me, the latest event that I’ve gone through with cancer is that my Uncle, who used to be an adamant and unforgiving smoker, found out he had bladder cancer about a year ago. Last year December he had an operation to create and install a neo-bladder. The operation, thank God went well and he is cancer free as far as we know today.
Not everyone is so lucky.
Similarly, my Nascar-loving, crazy-knitting-lady friend. Shari, from the blog, The Knit Wit by Shair, recently learnt that her mother was diagnosed with cancer, and that she has to undergo chemotherapy.
If you’ve ever heard anything about chemotherapy, you know that you tend to lose your hair during the process. Shari decided to knit some caps for her mother, so that she could keep her head warm during the therapy. She is a knitter after all.
Think about if one of your loved ones was diagnosed and needed chemotherapy. Wouldn’t you want someone to be doing something proactively in the same manner so that the chances of your loved one being cured improves drastically? It’s sort of a do unto others type of thing…..and God will bless you for it.
