21-years old, young and beautiful Jesselyn Ng was diagnosed with cancer. She was an art teacher in Singapore. She battled with the cancer for 10 months, but still she didn’t get better. At the end, she went into coma and needed life support to stay alive.
Looking at how suffering it is, her family decided to plug off the life support. After 5 days, she left the world.
After she left, there was a post, posted on her Facebook account. People was shocked, and when they read the post, their tears fall….
It was written by her elder sister, when she knew she couldn’t survive this battle. Lying on the bed, she insist to write down her last words, for her family and friends who loved her. She speak verbally, while asking her sister to write it down.
The letter goes like this…
To everyone who loves and cares for me:
Today, I”m saying goodbye. After 10 months of battling with cancer, I’ve decided I’m ready to go. Doctors have deemed my case as ‘medically futile’, so it means there’s nothing they can do for me anymore.
I never new how I contracted this illness, or how it could take my life away just like that. I never got a chance to say thank you to so many people who’ve been loving me and showing me support through this difficult time.
So thank you, everyone of you. Family, friends, friends whom I’ve not contacted or seen for a long time, and everyone else who came down, thank you. Thank you for coming down to say goodbye to me. Thank you for your letters, for remembering me. For all the beautiful memories we have made these 21 years. I have brought them along with me.
Papa, mummy, and jiejie, thank you for taking care of me tirelessly during this period. Despite having to work, you never stopped thinking of me. Thank you for sacrificing your time and sleep to be here for me all the time, talking to me and encouraging me to fight on
It breaks my heart…to see your worried faces and all of you crying…Don’t cry…because I’m in a better place now. I will no longer have to feel pain, I won’t suffer anymore. So please, cheer up, I don’t want to see all of you so sad, ok? 😉
I am so touched by all the love I’ve received throughout this time. I promise I will be good where ever I’m going, and I will be happy.
Don’t worry about me everyone, I will be okay. I hope I meet all of you again next time. Until then, I will keep your love with me.
Goodbye for now, everyone <3
It tears my heart into pieces, reading through the letters. She was so young, just 21 years old. There’s so many things that she hasn’t gone through, and yet she was taken away…
Can you imagine the heart of the elder sister, when she was typing this letter for her? How much it hurts inside her heart, to see her young sister who was despair, but pretending to be strong… I really just can’t bear with this…
May God Bless this young lady, bring her to heaven, let her stay in heaven where there’s no pain, no sickness, no sorrow. I believe, she’s in a better place now, Amen.
