Patients who received the drug — Perjeta, from the Swiss drug maker Roche — had a median survival time nearly 16 months longer than those in the control group. (1)
We are all afraid to die.
But we do not know what death is.
We like living.
But again whatever we feel is something unpredictable. Something illogical.
We do not know why we are here. We do not know what we experience and why.
In the end we will all die.
Those who get sick, as well as those who stay healthy until their very last day.
Those who get cancer and those who don’t.
Those who get expensive treatment and those who cannot spare a dollar to get medicine.
Don’t worry too much then.
Don’t try so hard.
What life is…
As the song said it…
Is not a question. But a lesson learned in time.
It’s something unpredictable, but in the end it’s right.
I hope you had the time of your life…
Now go find that mustard seed. [Buddha]
