Never give up
A man’s struggle to find a cure for his health problem proves inspiring for this writer.
After dutifully serving his employer throughout his working life, he was dismissed without the agreed compensation because he was deemed “unworthy”. (Can you imagine being regarded as unworthy?)
what followed for the next seven years were court proceedings that consumed much of his valuable time and money, and caused great heartache for his family and relatives.
Tribulations aside, he keeps himself busy with swimming, gardening, and pursuing a PhD. How’s that for looking at the bright side and making the best out of everything? I would describe this man as the “epitome of perseverance”, a man who embodies the spirit of persistence and grit in times of difficulty.
will the cream turn into butter? That is uncertain. what is certain for now is that he keeps moving forward. All these have left a mark in me as I have the privilege to witness his struggles first hand.
They say that if you can get up one more time than you fall, you will make it through. with the birth of his daughter’s twins a couple of months back, he is currently undergoing stem cell therapy with cells derived from the umbilical cord of the babies.
He and those around him desperately wish for a lucky break to befall him, a panacea that may turn his life around for the better. Undaunted, he trudges on, proving the doctors wrong by still being able to walk albeit with great difficulty, and fighting for his health which, for many, means all the wealth in the world.
I, too, can only wish the best for him as he is my father.
