Personally I think, he is able to bear the physical suffering and live optimistically because of his incredible love for his beloved mother, admirable wife and adorable daughters. It is horrible for a person to know that they will die soon, but they do not know when. He knows for sure he will leave his lovely family forever soon. He not only feels terrible pain in his body but also he is suffering emotional and is very sensitive and vulnerable.
When he took one of his lovely daughters to school, her friends teased her due to his ugly appearance. There are many black spots on his face and it has gradually turns to a dark brown-black colour which is strange for children to see. He did not feel ashamed, but he was afraid that his daughter would be teased again so he decided not to take her to school anymore. However, it is great that his daughter tried to protect him in front of her friends. She loves her father regardless of how bad he looks.
When he was aware of his disease, he suggested that he and his wife should divorce. He felt his young wife was too young to have such a hard life and to become a widow soon. Nevertheless, the young mother of the two children did not agree and wanted to stay with him, to be by his side no matter how challenging the situation and to continue to look after him, his mother and their two children. I strongly believe that thanks to the love and care and support of his wonderful family, he has been able to overcome many obstacles he faces with the help of his strong mind too. He and his amazing attitude have been the motivation for his family to be able to keep living a normal daily life.
Therefore, each of us should be aware that family plays such an important role in our lives and we should try our best to keep our family together. That is the reason why CEF always wants our children to live with their families as long as they are good ones, no matter how poor they are.
