The Second Chance

The rare opportunity to do over or redo something. Not so many people have the privilege and opportunity of a second chance, and not all those who have been given the second chance realize or understand it, and when you do not recognize something, how can you appreciate it. Where there is no recognition, realization and/or appreciation, there can be no action.

Second chance is when you have literally lost everything and you are powerless in the face of things around you, and the only option is to “reboot”. When everything you have laboured for suddenly comes to a stand still and there seems to be no way again but to start all over!

Certain illnesses that are terminal have unusual ways by which it exact pain and suffering on the lives of the patients. Cancer, for example, can be an unexpected and sudden affliction that summarily transform the live of the patient within couple of weeks such that, the patient is left completely confused. With a possibility of a second chance, the patient builds up hope and energy sufficient enough to keep him/her ‘afloat’ and going.

To be given a second chance is not something to be taken with levity or carelessness. Not everyone has the privilege. Second chance demands and responsibilities are seemingly higher and greater than those of the normal live. For one, you most likely don’t have any other opportunity left. If you ‘blow’ this one, you are on your own!

To those with greater opportunities are required greater responsibilities. There is no room for excuses as before! It is up to you to find out what your responsibilities are, and to brace up yourself to meet them.

‘Second Chance’ is a guide to understanding cancer and offers helpful insights for survivors, fighters, and caregivers. The authors share how to recognize signs and cope with cancer, discussing the link between medical science and faith in treatment.

The book highlights the crucial role of family, friends, and community support.

It also sheds light on the often-overlooked caregivers, especially spouses, and the stress they go through.

Lastly, ‘Second Chance’ talks about life after cancer as a special opportunity — a chance to reshape one’s life, not as a right, but as a unique privilege.

The purpose of the book is to create awareness and to encourage others that our God is still in the business of performing miracles.
