ARE YOU OKAY?

Yesterday was national RU OK day but every day people should care a little more. Ask the question and truly listen. Sometimes, people don’t need the answer. They just need to know that someone care and there for them.

One of the biggest cause of suicide is that if they do not matter / make a difference in life.

But every single human being matter and every single human being deserve to be loved and to be happy.

If you are reading this, I want to ask you the question,”Are you okay” because I care and I love you 🙂

Huggss,
Nat xx

Had a crack up with my nurse Lou. And as I walked out, this lady Jo said she saw me on the news. I asked Gary to jump in for group hugs too haha

My second home ward 9 🙂 Anna who greets me at the desk and Courtney my doctor. Jess the nurse sneaked me in a hug too but she is camera say. I bump into the gent but I forgot to ask his name.

Then, I chatted to a couple downstairs.My brain isn’t that sharp after chemo. I think their name is Michael and Cynthia who is about to go up to Ward 9. He is just recently diagnosed and they are just about to have their first night at Peter Mac.
Hang in there Michael!

D86: JIM the amazing MELANOMA CANCER SURVIVOR

Watch this miraculous story if you are diagnosed with MELANOMA

I met lovely Jim and Nelly at Chemo Day Unit. Jim was diagnosed with melanoma. It started on what look like an insect bites. By the end of it, his cancer spread everywhere in his body. He was given few months to live and the doctor wants to stop his chemo because it doesn’t seem to work. Being given the options to live for a few months or to be on chemo for a chance, Jim and his wife Nelly fight it out to be kept on the trial drugs. A few months later the cancer reduced and by now he is 100% cancer free.

I also asked him what kept him going and he gets emotional as he replied,”It is his wife, kids and grandkids.”

It was lovely to meet you Jim and Nelly 🙂 Hope I keep hearing good news from you.

D86: LAUGHTER with HOT CAKES + Ward 5 video bombing

Watch this if you are feeling blue. Bet it can crack a smile on your face. I can’t stop laughing with my fave chef : Jesse from The Kettle Black. Sometimes you met someone who you just can crack yourself laughing and he is one of them.

Keep an eye for Ward 5 nurses/staffs video bombing on the background. Nice job everyone! I love the guy at the back who clapped when I blurted the line,”Hot cakes, Hot chef.” You can have free ticket on my stand up comedy one day (next on my to do list) haha.

D86: LOOK AFTER YOURSELF & EACH OTHER + HUGS ARE IMPORTANT
– Dale Fisher : CEO of Peter Mac

I bumped into this lady on the hallway. She said,”Hey Nat, how are you doing?” and I said,” I’m well, how are you and what’s your name.” I gave her a big hug before I was informed she is the CEO of Peter Mac. So I requested a video with her. Thank you for your time and hugs 🙂

It was a humbling experience to hear the CEO said that I have made a great impact for the staff and patient. I would love to one day do a hugging meditation at Peter Mac and create connection between patients/carers or even staffs.

The staffs at Peter Mac has been amazing. I believe you have been a great influence in this Dale. At times I felt the staffs : doctors, nurses, dietitians and everyone working there do not get enough credit and appreciations for the works that they have done. Especially, the nurses who I spend most of my time with, they work really hard in between patients. So on behalf of me and other cancer patients. I want to say,”Thank you.” sealed with hugs and love 🙂
