A cure for cancer, unsung heroes, and thank god for babysitters…

Having read today that a cure for cancer could well be on the cards (especially in the case of melanoma) I imagine we all felt a little happier…  Whether or not we are likely to suffer from the disease, cancer is something that we all have to be mindful of, something that causes untold misery and cuts lives short indiscriminately.
But what made me think even more was an interview with one of the researchers, Dr Eggermont, who had been working on such a cure for most of his 27 year career. How many of us have the patience and determination to try, fail, get up and try again so consistently until we succeed?  Not many, I would think.
We live in a world of instant gratification, where even the talented (for example, some of the X Factor auditionees) want to get to the top instantly, make money, find fame with minimal effort.  A world that celebrates the superficial, brainless but beautiful (or heavily made-up) over the unsung heroes beavering away and hoping to change the world, not for themselves but for others.
I used to be the same with my writing – wanting the lucrative book and film deal, spending time writing – yes – but not thinking beyond what I wanted.  Now, having articles published in magazines, I am learning how to “give the audience what they want” rather than focus on my own ambitions.
So as well as a hefty dose of hope and encouragement, perhaps today’s news could help us to realise that it’s worth working that little harder for the things we want to achieve, and that failure really can just be delayed success..!
There are people in all of our lives that make things a little more do-able. And I was struck today at the efforts of our babysitter – a lovely girl of 15 who comes and “helps out” once a fortnight by playing with the kids and using the energy that Ray and I lack to give them a good run around (whilst enabling us to run a hoover over the crumbs).  Anyone who can jump around with Lily for an hour and bounce on the trampoline with a bad knee is worth their weight in gold.  So here’s to going “above and beyond.”
Watching Lily’s enjoyment running around and seeing her flushed cheeks and dancing eyes, it made me more aware of how little I am able to do with her at the moment, what with my elephantine body and underactive thyroid…  I really hope that once little Evie Rose is born, I can get my old fitness back and give that toddler a run for her money!

Thanks for sharing such a great post. It's true we all take things for granted too much and are too used to getting what we want instantly. I like your theory of failure being delayed success. I will remember this on those days when I feel like giving up whatever it is I'm trying to achieve. My Mum has had, and survived cancer so to Dr Eggermont, I thank you :-)

My name is sonia, I am here to give my testimony about a doctor who helped me in my life. I was infected with HERPES SIMPLEX VIRUS in 2010, i went to many hospitals for cure but there was no solution, so I was thinking how can I get a solution out so that my body can be okay. One day I was in the river side thinking where I can go to get solution. so a lady walked to me telling me why am I so sad and i open up all to her telling her my problem, she told me that she can help me out, she introduce me to a doctor who uses herbal medication to cure HERPES SIMPLEX VIRUS and gave me his email, so i mail him. He told me all the things I need to do and also give me instructions to take, which I followed properly. Before I knew what is happening after two weeks the HERPES SIMPLEX VIRUS that was in my body got vanished . so if you are also heart broken and also need a help, you can also email him at: draigbehispellhome@gmail.com
