What’s Worse? Dying or Living Hell?

Filed under: Life - Ain't It Funny?, People — launchpad @ 9:29 pm

Today I came across something that I’ve actually come across many weeks before.

I started coaching with a young girl, in simple subjects - math and science.
I knew she was once unwell - brain cancer.
But then I see her happy self - cracking jokes, laughing at funny things.
I know she’s fine.

Today I read her blog - her quiet thoughts.
I realised a question, what’s worse - dying or living hell?
She was, and still is upset - that her cancer has caused her small stature, that people make fun and sometimes mistaken her for younger.
She hopes to be well someday, but most of all, for people to understand her… not to be made fun of, intentional or not.

She’s young (at 14) and has a long way ahead.

She came off unscathed by cancer. Thank God for that.

I only hope the best for her.
