Battling cancer

I just got to know that January is cancer prevention week. After talking to three family member who's spouse or siblings succumbed to cervical cancer, and seeing my own auntie battling cancer for 9 months,I remember vividly standing by her deathbed, her breathing was shallow, she became unresponsive to calls, her stare was blank, despite knowing the inevitable, my uncle kept on urging my aunt to fight, never to give up, but with the machines attached to her to read her vitals kept on beeping, she was long gone, and that the breathing and the heartbeat were self regulated despite brain dead.As long as her brainstem still works, her heart will continue to beat, breathing is purely automated. I couldn't find the heart to tell my uncle who was constantly cuddling her, saying sweet loving words to her.
I was determined then. Nobody should die like this. This is painful death. Her death doesn't stop the grieving family, the psychological, mental,and emotional scar is indescribable. Only one who goes through this knows the impact cancer has upon ones family.
And with the discovery of cervical cancer vaccine, it marked a milestone in medicine, changed the course of mankind forever.
But the sad new remained, ignorant doctors, ignorant public,. I bet those very few cancer survivors would wish the vaccine were discovered much earlier.
Often times, I felt like fighting a battalion of ignorant army all alone. How great would it be if I have brothers or sisters in arms and together we take the challenge of educating the public one by one. If the ignorant are challenging enough, what about the skeptics, those who write books and had them published, poisoning the minds of people by feeding them lies like these diseases aren't as rampant or serious as it's being told, but merely a ploy by pharmaceutical companies to earn their money, where the share holders would laugh away as the public sees  the emergence  of such vaccine is a "miracle" in medicine.
Ladies, it is a miracle. I may have said this a million times, but I will say it again. The next big thing in medicine where it's significance is at par with the discovery of cancer vaccine would probably be the discovery for the cure for AIDS.
Since the masses are rather ignorant, and probably being deluded with the thoughts that they aren't so unlucky to get cancer, well, please think again. Do you know that the charts, figures, and graphs that represents mortality were once human with family like you and me.
Don't let doubts creeps into your mind. I have been sitting in front of the computer the whole day writing proposal to human resource departments of giant companies like Maxis,Digi,Berjaya Group, and Shell.
I am offering RM165 per dose, probably one of the lowest price in the nation,well probably the lowest...
Love your siblings, wife,cousins,?Spread the news to them. The threat of cervical cancer is very real.
The least you could do is to spent some time at another site which I dedicate entirely on cervical cancer. Click here to be directed there.See your doctor today.
