I have some friends and acquaintances who are suffering from cancer. Some have gone and some are still struggling to live the good life they deserve. It is always puzzling to me how people get cancer. I would always wonder what if I already have it but still not aware that I have it. It is dangerous to think of the possibility because study would say that cancer strikes at the most unexpected time and place. There would be cancer of which the causes are evident, like something related to smoking, drinking, stress, environment, virus, etc. But there are cancers that hit even the healthiest, liveliest and nicest individual. Nobody can really tell. Perhaps only God knows the reasons behind every person's story.

One pastor in our church even said in one Sunday service about 4 years ago, "The reason why you are sick is not because you have committed a sin or did something wrong." I held on to that statement because some people believe that committing a sin equals sickness/suffering.

It is also heartbreaking to see kids, in their innocence and at a very young age, to be stricken with cancer. I would always shed tears whenever a story on this subject would be featured on TV. I would think that life is sometimes unfair. They have not enjoyed life to the fullest and now, their days are numbered. I just wish that there would be a definite cure for all kinds of illnesses, and that treatments would be very affordable for everyone.

How can we show love and care to kids with cancer? You can do your part by clicking LIKE on the Real Love Campaign's Facebook Page. For every LIKE the page receives equals 1 sandwich to be given to the kids. The target is to hit 10,000 LIKEs so that 10,000 sandwiches can be prepared by Unilever Foodsolutions.

This Real Love Campaign is being supported by Kythe Foundation. Its vision is to improve the quality of life of pediatric patients by uplifting kids' spirits and empowering hope in this children and their families. Kythe Foundation also specializes in promoting optimum growth, development and helping the kids cope with the challenge of hospitalization.
