Inspired by a movie “Forrest Gump”, I had found numerous lessons that we can learn and apply in life. As I was watching the movie from the beginning up to the last scene, I was able to catch sight of every inspiring detail of Forrest’s life that made me think to write an article that can also relate to people who have cancer, who take care of cancer patients, and who love to give something back to cancer patients.
Like what Forrest said,
“There’s only so much fortune a man really needs and the rest is just for showing off.”
After earning riches out from being successful in different careers Forrest pursued, he gave Bubba’s share (his best good friend) of the shrimping boat business to Bubba’s family, especially to his mom. He also gave a lot to the Foursquare Gospel Church and to the Bayou La Batre Fishing Hospital. Forrest said, too…
“If you can share your wealth, it’s worth doing”
The idea of this movie’s moral is not only by giving the wealth if you can but it’s what can you do in order to join into the community that serves people who need the most. What can you build for the people who need your talent or skill? What can you show to the people who need the utmost hope in this world?
You don’t always have to give your extra portion of your riches to be great. But by doing something in helping a community for awareness, education, and involvement of your talent or skill,
…you are great!
Today, I read a recent article from my peer blogger in Vietnam The Bureau that talks about one of the most alarming diseases in the country and also its medical system.
And I could not agree more that Vietnam needs better education and more effective campaigns about health in general.
As for The Cancer Voice in Vietnam, some selfless volunteers have been actively engaging to the work that aspires to reach out to every single child that is affected of cancer.
And these people are eager to reach the mission, vision and values because they believe that there is always hope for the cure.
The Cancer Voice Vietnam is still actively working for better awareness and education campaign of every family member whose child is affected with Childhood Cancer.
There were many young children and babies who lost their battle already with cancer. Yet, the public awareness about this dangerous illness has not been heightened yet.
Ask yourself what you can give back for these children in your own and simple way.
Have an idea to be part of these children’s lives and be great?
