How Joyful It Is To Live A Peaceful Life
Yamakuchi County, Mr. Kimura, 59
I decided to fight against cancer till the last moment
of my life
It was over 10 years since cancer cells were found in
my liver. At that time, physical examination revealed that my liver
function was not too efficient. One year later, in 1989, on the day when
Emperor Zhao passed away, I was diagnosed as suffering from cirrhosis.
Since an operation would have been difficult, I instead went through liver
artery embolism half a year later. In November that year, cancer was found
in my stomach. The operation that followed removed my stomach and
gallbladder. At that time, my wife kept the truth from me. She hid her
tremendous grief and actively took part in gatherings for cancer patients.
She availed of all relevant information and bore the problems by herself.
Two years later, my wife finally revealed my real condition to me. Since I
was to be subjected to ethanol injection treatment, she had to tell me the
facts for she knew that I wouldn’t be able to go through this suffering
without knowing why. This procedure required a 12-cm-long cylinder to be
inserted in my body. The pain was excruciatingly beyond any words. Much
strength was also required in undergoing such procedure. My wife,
therefore, thought it only fair that I should know the truth.
Frankly speaking, after hearing the facts, I felt
darkness suddenly envelop me. How can I believe it? When I thought about
my wife bearing so much pressure and pain alone through this long period,
I decided that I could not be demoralized. For my wife, and family
members, I must defeat cancer.
Going through the torture of long-term treatment
From then on, I had undergone ethanol injection
treatment 20 times per year and from 1999 onwards, the treatments were
reduced to 9 times per year. My strength was totally consumed by this
painful procedure. Unbelievably, I did not lose my appetite and my
recovery was quite satisfactory.
In April 1999, I got to know Dr. Wang Zhengguo. My
wife collected all kinds of news reports, magazines and books about
cancer, in which she found Tian Xian liquid. The tumor at that time
measured 6 cm, neither reducing nor growing. Although it caused liver
encephalitis last year, the disease soon cured itself. My appetite and
sleep were no different from normal people.
My wife said that almost all the cancer patients we
met in the hospital have died from cancer recurrence five years later. On
the other hand, the doctor did predict very slight chance of cure for me.
Now, I am not only quite nimble in action but I keep a normal life. I have
lived 10 years since getting hit with cancer and I can’t help feeling
grateful. Cherishing the thought of total cure, I keep on taking Tian Xian
liquid up to now.
While living with cancer, I make sure that enjoy life
to my heart’s content. I usually listen to the radio, walk with my dog,
grow vegetable, maintain my interest and live peacefully with my family.
Maybe the principle of “existing peacefully with cancer” can be really
applied to the fight against cancer.
