WC and her sister BY brought their 79-year old mother to visit me in the evening of 14 October 2010.
The elder looked good and in high spirit.
The sisters hesitated whether to tell their mother truth about cancer.
During the interaction with my mother-in-law, the elder came to accept that she has been diagnosed with cancer.
She needs to adjust her life.
What is her immediate wish?
She wants to visit relatives staying in Medan, Sumatra, Indonesia.
That should be given top priority.
Does she want to go for modern treatment?
No. Her decision should be respected.
She is willing to change her diet by taking more health food too.
How about canned food and over-night foods? No more.
How about her favorite chocolates? No more.
The family is willing to offer assistance to her. She decides to stay with BY to overcome her problem.
She is a brave and determined elder. With strong family support and BY’s natural healing medication, she should be able to survive the test of time.
