Today’s Seva story #48 of 100 comes from Rebecca who lives in Kihei. I am collecting 100 Seva stories to share ideas, inspiration and spread positive news, Seva means selfless service for the benefit of community and the environment.
Rebecca writes: “Two years ago, my friend Lynette’s husband, Carlos, underwent a minor surgical procedure to remove a cyst from his back. At the time they did not know that what appeared to be a cyst, was a rare form of cancer, called lyposarcoma. In the two years that have passed, Carlos had to quit his job while his wife has been dedicated full time to driving him to appointments, administering medications, as well as being PTA president.
Many friends knew of Carlos’ initial diagnosis, and over time people assumed he would recover, but he hasn’t. This March they discovered that the cancer has spread aggressively into his lungs, and is probably not treatable. After two years of doing every cancer treatment possible, the family is heartbroken and financially destroyed.
Sometimes it is by feeding bodies and that we lift up souls.”
