My mom died on a beautiful Fall day

My mom passed away on a peaceful morning hour on a beautiful Fall day, with light rain falling, wind caressing the trees’ leaves, clouds dancing on the sky, and forests rejoicing the red, orange, yellow, green, and brown colours all at the same time.

I am still trying to process my feelings. I do not think I am feeling my emotions yet.

I was able to visit my mom and see her before she passed away. I was able to support my siblings during the difficult times. I helped with the funeral of my mom, too. All sounds quite surreal to me.

How did this happen?

And why??

She was loved and loved, especially her children.

I cannot believe she is gone. I cannot believe she is gone because she could not get medical care on time. We have tons of doctors and hospitals, yet due to the pandemic, they were full and as a results she was late in getting hospital care. I am so sorry and angry.

My mom could live a longer life. She was in a good shape. The fact that some people erroneously choose to not vaccinate/protect themselves & others, and some policies were not effective in handling this pandemic brings my blood to BOIL.

Please, please vaccinate. Please think about not only yourself but others, too. My mom’s death is just one example how directly one can lead to suffering and death of another innocent person.

Please please vaccinate. If you are hesitant, please talk to someone eligible to provide clinical info and you trust, like your nurse or physician.

Please do it for yourself AND for others that you do not even know.

Raising awareness

I am re-posting of MeRaw, who has lost a young son to testicular cancer.
We all can contribute to raising awareness to help control cancer. Cancer is a very common disease (for example; in Canada, 45% of the residents are estimated to get cancer)…

On top of that, our special needs children/adults may require their families/health care team to be more vigilant about the cancer awareness/symptoms/management.
Help spread the word please.

The Journey of My Left Foot (whilst remembering my son)

Sunday 7th August

This weekend has been all about meeting up with survivors and raising awareness of Testicular Cancer, and taking part in the annual memorial trek up Mount Snowdon.

Last year I made a video to coincide with the weekend


This year I have decided to write a petition for Testicular Cancer screening to be made available to Special Needs young men.

Click on Frankie Angel bear to go to the petition

It would mean a great deal to me if you were to watch, read and sign.

The life with cancer

I have read quite a bit about the cancer patients’/survivors’ experiences on the net.

I want you to know I admire your courage; the way you handle your diagnosis, treatment, all the changes and worries about yourself, your loved ones, and your future. I also understand your frustration with the doctors, nurses, or medical care as a whole that fails to recognize, acknowledge, listen to, understand, inform, or treat you as you deserve.

I admire the fact that your life, your body, and many things in them change so fast, so profoundly yet you keep going. I admire the strength you have; physical, emotional, and psychological. I love the fact that many strive to raise awareness about the issues around how cancer patients and survivors are treated, what they experience, and what further we need to improve.

Cancer affects all of us; it is just a matter of time for many of us. It is the patients, survivors, and their caregivers who make us see the life with cancer so sincerely, openly, and honestly. When we need help and support, we know where to find it. Thanks for sharing your stories.
