A Family Shattered

A snippit from Shattered! 
Something traumatic happened to me.  It was something far worse than being given a diagnosis of cancer.  It came as a terrible storm, a violent explosion of suppressed jealousy, hatred and anger.   A Specialist Physician with a god-complex looked at something he did not understand, fought with a doctor who had to defend herself, irrespective of the truth or consequences of her lies, gave false information to my family that has had dire significance for me, has ruined my family, and made me ashamed, humiliated and embarrassed to be alive.  It swept away all that was civilised about a family.

If it were not for my mother, Professor Linch of the University College Hospital in London, Professor M du Toit of the Bone Marrow Unit, Cape Town, Dr F Meyer and Dr Frieda Pienaar and her incredible team of specialists in Bloemfontein, and Dr Stern, I would not be here to tell you this story.  If you want to live and you have a serious life-threatening illness, it is important to find a team of medical professionals that want to save your life as badly as you want to live.

From my own experience, I know that it takes a lot more courage to live than to die.  My fervent prayer is that I will continue to have the courage to choose life over death.  My belief in a Higher Power and the aforementioned people, have been the anchor of my soul.
