For A Good Cause

Today is a gloomy day as the world has lost a visionary.

The man behind the iPod and iPhone as well as the personal computer and the iPad, Jobs died of cancer Wednesday at age 56. RIP Steve Jobs. You will be remembered.

Steve Jobs

"Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven't found it yet, keep looking. Don't settle. As with all matters of the heart, you'll know when you find it. And, like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on." -Steve Jobs

Cancer is a class of diseases characterized by out-of-control cell growth. There are over 100 different types of cancer, and each is classified by the type of cell that is initially affected.

Children developed different types of cancer compared to adults. Also, children cancer grows more rapidly than adult cancer. Common types of childhood cancer in Malaysia are leukemia, lymphoma and brain tumor. At least 95% of the cancers in children occur spontaneously. Study shows that children cancer is not caused by inheritance.

Children with cancer can lead like a normal childhood. They have no reason to lose all life. Most children with cancer will return to school after treatment. In other cases, the children and their families adapt and modify their lifestyle to achieve normalcy. This becomes much easier with care, understanding and support from family, teachers, friends and other caregivers.

In conjunction with Cancer Awareness Week, Chilla Cup plays its part as a caring community to help children fight against cancer. Chilla Cup pledges RM1.00 for every sale of pretzels and hot chocolate this week to MCF (Madeline Children Fund) to help Malaysian cancer children.

MCF (Madeline Children Fund) was initiated after a young girl named Madeleine passed away after a long but courageous fight with cancer. They aim to celebrate her memory while helping today's cancer suffering children fight this disease just like little Madeleine did. 

After the diagnosis the brain tumor quickly took control over her entire life, and after one year it conquered her. She is forever six years old. This or a similar scenario can happen to anyone at anytime.   The only positive outcome of losing a beloved daughter, a sister and a grandchild is the way MCF can help others in a situation similar to that they experienced a few years ago. 

Life is short, do appreciate and embrace it!
