Our Wonderful Reunion with Ella in Singapore

In an earlier posting, I shared our wonderful meeting with Henny in Surabaya in early August 2019.

Come 31 August and 1 September 2019, Im and I were in Singapore.

We flew there to meet up with Ella and Peter from Melbourne, Australia. They are our dear friends (and patient).

This is indeed another wonderful “reunion” story to share with you.

 

Ella was diagnosed with cancer of the endometrium, ten years ago — Novermber / December 2008. She underwent surgery – TAHBSO (total abdominal hysterectomy with bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy), omentum and left and right pelvic nodes. This was performed in Melbourne by one of Australia’s best surgeon.

After the surgery, Ella was asked to undergo chemotherapy and radiotherapy. She refused the treatments. She opted for the CA Care Therapy instead.

Watch this video:

Ella: The surgeon told me: To the best of my knowledge, I have got all the cancer that I can see. But you know and I know that the cancer is so minute, I don’t know. What I can offer you is to go to the oncologist and do chemo and radiation. Then I told her: You know and I know that I wouldn’t do that!

Then the surgeon said: In my knowledge – and I am a very good surgeon – you have two and a half years if you do chemo and radiation.

Two and half years? The surgeon then said: But if you don’t do it, maybe it is just three months.

Ella told the surgeon: No, I’ll prove you wrong.

Ten years after the surgery, we met in Singapore.

Who is ill?

Surely the pictures above show that no one is sick!

Thank God, all of us are just doing great!

Ella had proven the surgeon was wrong in her prognosis!

You don’t need to die if you don’t undergo chemo and radiation!

The irony is that even with chemo and radiation Ella was told she only has two and a half years!

The first word Ella said to me when we met in Singapore: I am still alive!

Let us celebrate this wonderful blessing!
