This is a story that many people have experienced.The death of a loved one is hardly acceptable unless we realize that death is the only way to end to their suffering.

I remember that after we celebrate Mother's day, my grandmother began to feel something wrong, something painful is hurting her.When a person who is as strong as my grandmother would just suddenly feel that way we always think something evil had indulge her. Only to learn that it was... Cancer. A disease that has no cured.
My grandmother got this disease many years ago but she survived that moment since we were able to notice it and caught it on time. But the cancer further spread and appeared on another area of her body- her tongue. Cancer is like a thief who silently sneaks and take the very life out of you.

And we hopelessly watch as it drain the energy and life out of our grandmother. Days were full of ups and downs, we remain hopeful and my grandmother still try to be cheerful still talking to everyone. But the worst and most painful is is during her the Palliative Treatment which the pain is very excruciating for her. After a few months of struggles we sadly dismiss her. No hope for reconciliation the Doctor told us that my grandmother has 7 months to live. It was all very painful for all of us. Accepting the harsh fact is hard but in the end we try to console our selves that death is the only way to end her sufferings.

It's not fair, especially for a person who is cheerful and loving like my grandmother.  One thing i learned from her is that One should enjoy life, taste all those moments, be glad for every passing days and the people that is around you.
