My Heart: My New Friend Gab Gab


This is Gab Gab and he has cancer. At 4 months old, he had to start his chemotherapy.

He is now 10 months old.

When you see him, you’d never guess that he’s gone through so much. He smiles endlessly and laughs at every single thing possible. He likes grabbing earrings when women carry him. He loves his mom and looks for her whenever she’s out of sight.

This Christmas, all his mom wished for was to have his ninong/ninang give him clothes for going out. Today, he got a new pair of nice blue shoes and great clothes from his ninang.

To see a 10-month old baby go through something so painful is such a humbling experience. It was a great reminder for me.

It has reminded me to see things differently. Life is good, no matter how difficult it may seem to be.

It has also reminded me to always find ways to help those in need. The simplest things may seem to be so trivial for us, but to them it could mean the world.
