Thank you sir Tendin Wangchuk for sharing your inspirational story with us. We are grateful that you continue to join us in the fight against Cancer.
I had cancer, cancer never had me. I am not defined by what I am going through. Cancer will never have me. I am much more than my disease. Cancer is just a word, not a sentence. Cancer is not a death sentence. It is just one word in my sentence; one part of my life.
Today I find myself in remission courtesy of God’s clemency and by the sheer magical hands of an awesome Surgeon. Five years and counting. Thank You impalpable heavenly God and palpable earthly God Dr. Suddhasattwa Sen.
Letter ‘C’ is now an inseparable part of me – Cancer, Chemotherapy, Curse, Challenge and Cure. Most people feel creepy or their spine chilling to either comprehend or communicate the word Cancer and Chemotherapy. However, it is a course of conduct for me. I am blessed to be admitted into the Hall of Fame of persons having confronted chemotherapy and survived cancer.
Celebrating life this June which is observed as the National Cancer Survivor Awareness Month. I am thankful for this day. I am here, breathing and living life. Even if it is not the life I wanted or hoped for, nonetheless it is a life. There is always something to be thankful for.
