    I have a rare autoimmune disorder called ITP. Rarely enough, my identical twin sister also has ITP . She just went through her doses of chemotherapy in August I am not really scared about my life tbh. But I am always so worried for her. I don't wanna die but I also know that there's no treatment for this disorder. I sometimes have no will to live anymore. Its just too much to take sometimes. I feel like not going for my check ups, neither taking medicines, rather doing anything for that matter. But I know I can't give up. I can't do that to my parents or to myself. I hope anybody going through similar problems gets to heal. It is not easy to deal with, I know. But you gotta do what you gotta do.

    It's so refreshing and downright way to open up a truthful conversation with our family and friends instead of keeping it a secret to the last minute. That way it keeps people informed. I've witnessed several death in my journey and the only optimistic view I have is to look back at life that I live my life with no regrets. Being kind to people and animals. Preparing for our final destination is not looking back at what we have achieved or accumulated but what kind of legacy we leave behind for our children and friends. Being kind, compassionate, forgiving, and generous throughout your own personal life journey will be the answer. We should be able to embrace death when the time comes.

    16:28 That's what my mom said to me. She's has not passed yet, but I am still unable to get over the fact that she will die before me. Honestly, this is quite a hard request and I keep thinking about her funeral despite it not happening anytime soon. Please, don't tell your children that you are going to die. It will make them worry a lot and stress over it. I get what she is trying to say, but it can really impact your loved ones.

    " don't always dwell in what you are experiencing now, one day it will turn out beautiful" "I think sometimes what's really really, very important is the way we look at the situation. It's up to us, you need to decide what kind of ending you want. If you want a happy ending then you'll get it, but if you're thinking about a sad ending, then you'll also get that.

    I felt this documentary was slanted and portrayed an incomplete narrative. I know Singapore is a multireliguous society and we cant turn videos like this into evangelical meetings, however it is really impossible to be happy in these sorta situations JUST through positive thinking (like the ending implies). Hope in one's destination after death is the key to being positive. I bet a no of these ladies are Christian's but it was edited out or they just didnt talk about it.

    Hi Dear, just remember anxiety is basically the fear of the unknown, it easy for people like us who have anxiety to fear the what if’s, but don’t let it take over you, write your worries down and meditate or go for long walks with nature. Life is both cruel and a blessing we just need to know how to navigate through the tough times. People who been through challenges become one of the happiest individuals. Take care and everything will resolve itself

    My mom was diagnosed with cancer last year. 5 weeks after she was diagnosed she died. She couldn't breathe and as someone with asthma being with my mom while she struggled was the worst. We looked through assisted suicide programs because of her pain. Looking back I wish we were able to get approved for a right to life program but because of my hope that she'd be okay we delayed it and it only got worse. She was all I had for family. I have no siblings or dad or grandparents. When she died I was lying in her hospital bed with her and tried to sing her favorite songs but kept sobbing. Then that morning around 3 she passed away. And that drive home at 5am was the most surreal strange experience I've ever had.

    My mother also had stage 4 cancer but she survived yet now 10 years later it has relapsed and this time the cancer is much stronger and at more places. However, I think that the most difficult is paying for good and high quality cancer treatment. Right now for the relapse she has went through 6 courses of Chemo with little effect and the doctor recommends this new drug but it's $10,000 per month which is more than 3 times our gross household income. What makes it worse is that very little insurances will cover a recovered cancer patients so now we can't even depend on insurance.

    Cried so much throughout this video. My mom had breast cancer when I was 13 and her condition was hidden for years before my aunt broke it to me. I felt so guilty and devastated. I remember coming back from the hospital crying alone in bed and being weighed by the potential prospect that I could’ve lost her, she’s thankfully still surviving and on medication. It really opened my eyes up to how fragile and precious human life is, and how you never know when it’s your last day.

    I think the thing that hurts me most of this is that I suffer from low grade teterral plate glioma (brain tumor) and the night I was rushed to hospital after an MRI to see if anything was wrong because I had a very extreme tremor is night that I would never forget. I could of gone blind. I could of had a seizure. My mum searched brain tumor (this was before any sort acute diagnoses and we were all still in the dark) and all she could find was seizures, coma, vegetable state, blindness, death.The sound of the telephone ringing in the dead of night was awful. My parents shaking me awake. Running around to pack up my bags. I was so confused and scared. Nobody told me what was going on until after my operation. I was eight. Oof sorry about writing this much I just kind of spilt out all my emotions haha.

    My friend also had bone cancer in her spine. They found it around her 21 birthday and she fought it off for 3 years until it finally took her. I remember her hoping that her testing and experimental treatments helped others who had the same condition in the future. She hated whenever anyone was acting doom and gloom and said that she was always thankful for anyone just being there because her friends and family started avoiding her once she was diagnosed. People tend to distance themselves from the sick and dying and I get that. I really do, because it's so much harder to let them go but if you really care about someone, you face that heartbreak for their sake.
