Personal Experience of a Cancer Victim (by Lee Soh Hong)

In June 1999, i.e., four months before my mother succumbed to her illness, she somehow knew that her days were numbered and accepted her mortality.

On the contrary, her doctors confirmed that her condition was fairly stable. None of her doctors were concerned about new metastases in her brain and overlooked her symptoms. We actually suspected something could be wrong with her brain but the doctor assured us that it was fine. It was a costly lesson for us to trust the doctor's baseless judgment without carrying out proper examination. My mother's life was then in the hands of the neurosurgeons and the radiation oncologist. Her last journey was a lousy life experience with many things going wrong in the hospital. If my mother was alive today, being a forgiving person, she would not blame anyone for her death. She would simply call it bad luck to run into indifferent doctors.

Therefore it is very important that you trust your body signals for better or worse and insist that your doctor do what is necessary to give you another fighting chance against cancer if possible.

I shall forever live in regret for not believing my mother's intuition and thus depriving her of another opportunity to fight back against cancer. If I had believed her,instead of relying on the oncologists' baseless opinion/judgment, and insisted her oncologists order a MRI, the results would have been conclusive.
