Why Don’t You Give Life On Christmas Day?

People, they say, come into your life for a reason, a season or a lifetime.  There’s this one person who came into my life some nine years ago, but left in a somewhat painful way- she died of breast cancer.

This woman was the older sister I never had.  We were coworkers, but she proved to be more than that to me.  Ironically, we were then working in a health research branch of the government.  Everyday we were faced with medical and health journals on the latest advancements in healthcare, but apparently, none of the magic from all the breast cancer cures out there worked to her advantage.

It’s comforting to know that these days, there are more companies working towards the goal of medical and health research development.  One such company is cureLauncher.com.  The people behind this advocacy strive to give each person the cure they need by helping the best medical researchers with funding for their projects.  They gather donations from willing donors, and send these funds directly to doctors and researchers who relentlessly find a cure for each life-threatening condition.

The life we have been given is a gift to be cherished.  What’s even more of a blessing is when we’re able to save other people’s lives in whatever way we can.  What small step have you taken lately in trying to give others the gift of life?
