All of us had been there in that familiar place where life challenges us. These challenges may come in many shapes and sizes and in our case the burden seems unbearable. Who would have thought that one day you’re stronger than a bull but next morning you woke up sick? Life’s indeed full of surprises huh, but what matters most is how we are going face this ultimate challenge God has given us.
For us, it is challenge accepted. We looked at it in a different perspective. We believe that He is using us to become an inspiration to others. This is the reason why He gave us this cross to carry. He wants us to show others how to face problems together and to show others how HOPE, LOVE and FAITH can solve anything.
Acute Myelogenous Leukemia, AML, is a type of cancer that affects the blood and bone marrow. Our dear love one is currently fighting against AML. He is that kind of person who loves unconditionally, who gives without asking anything in return, and who helps without expecting a payback. There is incredible joy in making others happy, despite our own situations; he is that kind of person.
I run out of words to describe how good this person is so instead let me share you this video, http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=ZYSBdz31gPA&feature=youtu.be.

Matthew 25:35-40 For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me.’ Then the righteous will answer him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you drink? And when did we see you a stranger and welcome you, or naked and clothe you? And when did we see you sick or in prison and visit you?’ And the King will answer them, ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.’
