Cousin passed away due to leukemia

Life is really unpredictable, and often things just turned out not what we wanted to be. On 22nd January 2008, my cousin, Chun Chong lost in his determined battle against leukemia, and passed away on that day. There went the future of a very bright and determined youth, who had just a few years ago, was granted JPA Scholarships to study in Germany.

Eventually, he never managed to make that journey to Germany. He got leukemia when he was in preparatory program, and was hospitalized for many months. Managed to fight through the battle of sickness, he managed to go back to Multimedia University to do his foundation program. But unfortunately, his health turned bad again in May 2007 and finally lost his life on 22nd January 2008. He had been fighting determinedly to recover from his sickness.

I can definitely sense the sadness in my uncle and aunt, who really gave their very best in taking care of him. That's the beauty of parents' undivided love for their children. However, things are just not what we can predict.

He managed to write a will to his family before he passed away (The letter was only found after he passed away). He passed on his laptop and books to his younger sister. He asked his family members to eat vegetables, fruits and drink more water. He asked his family not to feel too sad about him.

Am very sad about this. Hope that my uncle, aunt and family would be able to go through this. I was able to be back in Parit Buntar for the prayers last night and the final prayers this morning before he was brought to Taiping for his funeral. Condolence to my uncle, aunt and family.

My condolences. I had a junior who happened to share a similar fate.She was recieved a scholarship to go overseas but she was diagnosed with colon cancer(it was genetically inherited as her father also died ofthe disease) a few weeks before she was even enrolled.She passed away while during treatment and did not manage to leave any will for her family and friends.At least, your cousin managed to pass down his last words to the ones he loved.
