Cancer Plea

A few weeks ago, I received a request from one of my friends about a young man who was diagnosed with leukemia and has suffered a relapse. He is in Singapore right now, awaiting a stem cell transplant at Singapore General Hospital. Due to the side effects of the chemotherapy, his white blood cell count is dangerously low and they are looking for potential blood donors to help replace that. If you, or anybody you know, is in Singapore, has O+ blood and would be willing to donate, I am sure the family would be very grateful. Their contact numbers are: 00-65-811-97-904 and 00-65-82-07-4232.

Thank you!


Sunday, March 21, 2008: The young man passed away yesterday. I didn't know him personally but from the kind of tributes his friends are sharing, he must have been a remarkable human being. Please remember him and the family in your prayers.

from March 1979

Tired of all who come with words, words but no language,
I went to the snow-covered island.
The wild does not have words.
The unwritten pages spread themselves out in all directions.
I come across the marks of roe-deer’s hooves in the snow.
Language but no words.
