Call them ‘A Fighter’.

Like a small boat
On the ocean
Sending big waves
Into motion
Like how a single word
Can make a heart open
I might only have one match
But I can make an explosion
And all those things I didn’t say
Wrecking balls inside my brain
I will scream them loud tonight
Can you hear my voice this time?
This is my fight song
Take back my life song
Prove I’m alright song
My power’s turned on
Starting right now I’ll be strong
I’ll play my fight song
And I don’t really care if nobody else believes
‘Cause I’ve still got a lot of fight left in me.
Fight Song By Rachel Platten
Hola, Hej and Hello. Did I ever mention in any of my blog post that I want to be an Oncologist? Well I don’t think so. Well yeah, now that I mentioned it. I want to be a cancer specialist. Now whenever I mention this in front of anyone, the first reaction that I ever get is ‘Oh, so why do you want to be one? Does someone close to you was a fighter or survivor?’. Not that anyone asked me this question when I used to say that I wanted to be a dermatologist.
The point is, you don’t have to be a cancer survivor nor does someone close to you ever need to be one in order for you to have an interest in helping people to fight it. People have different interest in different things all the time.
Those people who fight cancer are legends, even the ones who don’t survive, they all are the winners, the strongest ones among us. They don’t need our pity. Yes we can sympathize with them. But we don’t need to show it.
The world is getting modern day by day. We learn how to fit in it, how to catch up to it. We learn and strive hard to not get left behind in it, and we adapt to all the new ways and trends that are introduced to us.
So well, This is one more thing we need to learn and practice really really hard. It’s that how to not make a cancer fighter realize in every moment of their life that they are fighting something they didn’t ask for at the first place.We need to learn to how to be just normal around them, to not pity them, to not make their life any harder than it already is.
I am no doctor or specialist. Well, not yet. But one thing that I know for sure is that every smile and a normal look that you pass on to a fighter becomes a part of their therapy.
So let’s just try and help through any way that we can.
-Thank you
-Have a nice weekend
-Be nice, do good
