I’m writing this with a heavy heart. My mother just informed me about the worsening condition of my cousin Cez whose story I wrote here. According to Nanay, my cousin’s breast cancer has spread to her brain. It deeply saddens me that after all the medical intervention to treat her breast cancer in 2010, cancer cells were not really abated but have spread to her brain. She has yet to undergo another set of chemotherapy for this.
Cez and I grew up like real sisters. She’s my first cousin from my mother’s side of the family. We attended the same school and have several common friends. Although we argue on a lot of things when we were younger, I still look up to her as an older sister because I guess she’s wiser and practical than I am.
I don’t know if I can put on a brave face when I see her, but knowing myself I would surely cry.
I may not ease her pain, but I can say a prayer for her healing. If anyone reads this post, may I also request you to offer a prayer for my cousin. Please include her in your prayer…thank you…
