I don't know when and how I will leave the planet but if I can choose I hope it won't be cancer.... but life is not a wish granting factory.... Once a year I raise money for charities, this is how I chose to remember my loved ones. Remembering those who can't be here with me anymore (only in my heart). I realise this is just one of many sad cancer stories but this is my story, the one I "watched" from the front row...
Have you ever lost anyone after losing the fight against cancer? I hope you haven't... I have... This is something I don't wish upon anyone. However if you have, you will understand why I am saying this. You understand how cruel it is to watch the ones you love the most suffering, changing, leaving you behind. And you get to stay behind and "deal" with it. If only it was that simple...
Within 24 months I lost my uncle, my grandma and my father. In this order. One after the other... Half of my family was gone and there was nothing I could have done about it. I found it very difficult to deal with it, not living at home helped in one way as I didn't see the stages so frequently, but on the other hand I had to deal with something worse: guilt. For not being able to help and be there more often.
Please help us to raise money for cancer research together! We are going to do the 5k Muddy run in July at Finsbury Park, London! Video will be made and shared :-)
