After Death

  "Sometimes, you will never know the value of a moment until it becomes a memory" - Dr. Seuss.     Many people from different walks of lives strolled into the multi- purpose hall; with a heavy heart. Gripping tightly to the packet of tissue in their hands, as they tried their best to control … Continue reading After Death

I made peace

On April 18, I won the battle against colorectal cancer and surrendered myself to the Lord. It’s been almost 2 years 5 months since I was diagnosed with cancer.   Colorectal cancer mortality rates aren’t very encouraging and with the rarity of my case, doctors weren’t able to predict how long more do I have … Continue reading I made peace

Let’s do dinner

Dying is supposed to be an older person’s thing. We are all supposed to grow old, have an armful of grandchildren and in between, build an exemplary career for ourselves and travel the world. But that’s not how life works. We generally do not know what to do when a friend of ours in her … Continue reading Let’s do dinner

Cost of Cancer

Maybe because they understand that the patients that are coming to them are all in some form of pain. I have never … Continue reading Plug-fie

Sorry for being AFK

Sorry for being AFK (away from keyboard). I haven’t written anything in awhile because believe it or not, the introvert in me was pretty overwhelmed by the flood of concerned messaged received ever since I started blogging. Back here again because more concerned friends texted to ask if I’m okay since I haven’t updated in … Continue reading Sorry for being AFK

WTF is chemotherapy?

“During chemotherapy how does it feel like to have electrodes stuck to your head?” I was actually quite surprised and taken aback when someone asked me that question. Truth be told, before I was assigned the role of cancer troll, I had absolutely no idea what chemotherapy entails, or how it was administered. I lost … Continue reading WTF is chemotherapy?

Saving a Stranger

Dear Stranger Even though we've never actually met, I felt as though I knew you personally. We found out around the same time about our cancers. You were 26 then and I was 23. And I’m pretty sure that neither of us expected it and believed that even if we did get diagnosed with cancer … Continue reading Saving a Stranger

Hello my name is Kimberley and I've cancer. Back in December last year, I wrote a long note on Facebook about journeying with cancer.
