World Cancer Day

Today I think of my father and Bilal’s eldest sister, and the disease that took them away from us. I think of all the men, women and little kids that get diagnosed with this terrible disease every single day. I think of the families that get affected, that watch their loved ones go through the heartbreaking treatments, and the ones that have lost a loved one to it. I think of all the people that live in fear of it, and I hope. I hope for a cure. I pray and I hope.

For the ones that are fighting cancer, or have a loved one fighting it. For the ones that have lost family or a friend to it. You are not alone. And for the ones that have gone through the journey and are cancer-free now, you are truly brave and an inspiration to us all. May Allah bless us and our loved ones and keep us safe from life-altering diseases. Ameen

  1. my heart sinks when I heard someone suffering with it, if I could free world from anything that would be cancer, autism and DS.
    for all of those reading this post please pray for my best friend's daughter. she is just 6 and suffering from cancer and also for another friend of mine who is having thyroid cancer and have three small kids.

    1. So sad to hear about both your friend and your best friend's daughter. I cant even imagine the pain of that mom, it is the worst thing to see your kid suffer. May Allah heal both of them. I truly hope a cure is found to this terrible disease. Its heartbreaking.
