"It may be unfair, but what happens in a few days, sometimes even a single day, can change the course of a whole lifetime..."
– Khaled Hosseini (The Kite Runner)
September 16, 1998 was just another day but it was destined to change the course of my entire life. My dad who had been battling cancer for two years died a courageous and dignified death. I was just eight years old. The doctors were unable to diagnose his cancer until he was in the last stages. My family tried its best to do whatever it could to save my dad’s life. He even got his right index finger removed to stop the cancer from spreading, but it was just too late. At that time we were in India. We consulted as many doctors possible not only in India but also in United States. He was treated at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York. When he left New York, they said that he had no tumor, but after 18 months it came back and was worse than before. He fought courageously till his last breath.
I ride for my dad.
