Diabetic Cyborg Life 4/13: Interfaith Hope & Clarity, Part 18

The two fixed points in life are birth, coming to life, and death, life stopping. These two points are not going to change anytime soon. Medical science is progressing to the point that these two points may be altered, yet not eliminated anytime soon.

Our genes might be altered by science soon, though Allah knows what consequences might come to be in that sooner than later future. I just really hope gene therapy and mRNA vaccines can help eliminate my Mom’s cancer and my type 1 diabetes and multiple sclerosis, or MS, one day. The cancer therapy would not help us now, as the stages are way far gone to save her.

My cases of diabetes and MS are not fatal, and improvement seems all but assured before my time to pass on. I just hope that remedies for ovarian cancer that is killing Mom can be helped for others soon. Losing your loved one to such a late-stage cancer you had not they had weeks ago is as bad as you can imagine.

It is as close as you can get to someone murdering your loved one in front of you by poisoning. Like a slow-motion agonizing train wreck.
