Last Saturday, I went to the Taman Rimba Bukit Kiara which is just a stone's throw from my home. This lovely park with lush greenery is ideal for picnics and evening walks with families.
There was a private sports carnival organized by a leading banking group where they held great activities and health awareness for their huge number of participants.
I was invited by Hospis Malaysia to give a talk there & to thank the "Maybank Hearts Foundation" for their kind & generous support towards Hospis Malaysia. I told their staff about my 15 years experience as caregiver for the terminally ill patients and how I coped with my late mother's cancer and death. I shared some sad stories & pain of the many dying patients in my care. This made many ladies and men cry so much that day as they missed their mothers too.
We all know that many dying and lonely patients often had many regrets and dying wishes. Their common regrets might include the following:
1. I wish I had taken better care of my health.
2. I wish I had lived for myself more.
3. I wish I was happier.
4. I wish I had traveled to many countries.
5. I wish I had stayed in touch with everyone.
However, I shared the common regrets of many deceased patients I met that they did not have any GOOD FRIENDS before they passed away. So it's very important to have Good & True Friends to support each other till the end.
My wife and supporters at the event to hear my talk. Remember to be nice to all your friends!
