There is lots of wonderful people without whom my recovery would have not been successful.
I have many reasons for telling my story… I remember once I wasn't going to get my chemotherapy because I couldn't get the money out of my country to pay for it… My doctor said: “You cant stop this treatment, this is the only chance you have to live”… This morning it was a mother who have lost her son in that battle, and she decided to pay for my treatment.
I live with this reality…
Without that mother, my story would be quite different. As I experienced this beauty, I was always cognizant of the fact that I am extremely fortunate. To see this incredible act of kindness is not a blessing I take for granted, she gave me a different, much better life, filled with new appreciations and priorities and daily opportunities. I wish I were eloquent enough to express the gratitude, I still wouldn’t know what words to use to describe the awe, respect, and appreciation for the decision she made, a decision that was courageous and selfless and made at an incredibly difficult time. I think it was then that I realized that things happen for a reason, I was, once again, “saved” and pushed to move forward… I feel a responsibility to honor this mom… I say thank you and I try to use this phenomenal gift to its fullest; to use it not only to benefit my own life, but the lives of others.
There's a part of me making, creating the perceptions which in everyday life would be; there's another part of me which is kind of listening… Sometimes listening is also observing; Underneath our different accents, habits, foods, religions, ways of thinking there are so much kind acts and compassionate people… Humanity is truly a blessing.
