Happy New Year 2011.
It has been a full year since the detection and my treatments for the prostrate cancer in me. I survived a year to say the least. Thanks to my Oncologist, staff of HUKM, Friends in NCSM, my family and all my friends who had cared and helped me along in my fight against Cancer. We won the battle together. It wasn’t an easy year, particularly in the first 4 months or so. But we are ahead and maintaining full momentum towards full recovery.
Along the way I had met many wonderful new friends, learnt a lot more about cancer, our immune system, diet, nutrition, QiGong and God, and a bit of everything else. Looking back I am convinced that my career in the army had played a very significant role towards achieving this success. I may have left the army, but the army have not left me. My fight against cancer is very much the same as fighting the war against our enemies. It needs strategy, combat power, decisive actions, momentum, speed and discipline.
The hype word in combating cancer today is to take a holistic approach. But this means many things to the Oncologist, advocators and patients, but by and large, the holistic approach is a singular approach to most practitioners. I am of the opinion that it is not so. The holistic approach is very much a multiple approach for synergy and effectiveness.
In my fight against cancer, I had employed everything and anything. It is an all out war and there is no runners up, only the victor. Perhaps most unfamiliar to all people, except to soldiers, is combat power. What is combat power in the military?
Combat power is essentially firepower. It means troops, guns, tanks, aircrafts, ships etc etc. Combat power should be used to its fullest at the most opportune time. Combat power has been the core doctrine throughout my military training. I have to employ all the combat power available to me to combat cancer. What do I have? Military hardwares are no good for my fight against cancer. But I have more. I would like to table out my combat powers available for me to fight cancer in the list below. I will also assign a weighted combat power value to each power. The value of ten being highest strength and power. They are awesome.
I have been blessed to acknowledge the strength of the above combat powers. I employ these combat powers daily to great satisfaction and good health. Employing all the Combat powers daily gives me a strong force multiplier throughout the day. Cancer cannot sustain my daily bombardments. It will die.
Let’s fight cancer. We will certainly win, with all the combat powers available to us.
I was, and still am a soldier. I can amass my combat powers to full force with discipline.
