Yang bahagia Ketua Pengarah, Perpustakaan Negara, Dato Nafisah Ahmad, invited guests, ladies and gentlemen.
Terima kasih dan Selamat datang.
***Great morning to you all.
I am very encourage by your presence despite the unfavourable weather. Give yourself a round of applause. Please tell your neighbours that they are truly awesome.***
On this beautiful morning I am here to launch my book, Cancer my wake up call. I am James oh, the author of the book. I am also the founder of Lift You Up, a training entity specialising in finance, value creation and thinking skill.
It is a great joys to share this memorable event with you. Thank you for taking your valuable time to be here.
When I was first diagnosed with stage 3 stomach cancer, I went around searching for a book on it but I couldn’t find any that I could relate to. That was when the idea was mooted. As I progressed into my chemotherapy treatments the side effects were becoming more and more intense.
Ladies and gentlemen,
Many of you must be wondering If you are suffering how then can you write? Yes I was suffering but I also needed to divert my mind from the numbness-in my limbs, itchy scaly skin, nausea, vomiting, bleeding and so on. Thus in the midst of my chemotherapy I embarked on this book.
I decided to share my experience as it was still fresh in my mind, hoping that it will give some pointers and tips to my fellow sufferers as well the general public.
Even when my mind was hazy from the toxins of chemotherapy, I was aware of my social obligation. I wanted to show the community that even though I am a cancer patient. I Still Care!! I made up my mind if my book is ever published, I will donate a small portion of the sales proceeds to the cancer community.
My dear fellow sufferers, let us stand high and make the world a better place. Do not let this illness bring us down. Explore and see how we can contribute. The world does not end with cancer. It is just
a temporary setback.
Once again please allow me to extend my heartfelt thanks to PN n all of u who are present today. Your presence means a lot to me.
Thank you PN for your generosity for providing the venue as well as the delicious meal.
Before I leave this stage, I would like to leave this advice
Cancer does not kill
Early detection will save your life!!!
