Mio Fights Cancer





(photos from MioFightsCancer)

Mio in Italian means "Mine", in Japanese "Three times as strong". In here, Mio Mendiola is a son to a single mother Jasmine fighting for his life against cancer. And this is their love story. Please read their blog and lets share their story to our families and friends.

I guess a mother always understand what a child does not say. Every dream and wishes, pain and discomfort, words are not needed for a mother to understand fully what their child feels and thinks. Am not yet a mom to a human being, but one look and i know what Koffy needs. A certain look when he wants to pee or drink, when he's hungry, or when he wants to play, or when he's just bored and cranky. And especially when he's sick, it just breaks my heart every time. He didn't come from me but he's all mine. Ill do and give everything for him to have a fighting chance for the next 13 years of his life. I may be shallow but what i have is a mother's love to a dog.

Mio is a five year old boy and he's everything Jasmine got. Let's give this child a chance to finish his school, play sports, go to college, meet new friends, have a crush, or get his heart broken, go places, fall in love, get married and one day have his own kids, or just be a healthy son to Jasmine for as long as they both shall live.

Let's give and help.

Cancer is SUCH a horrible disease. We have oncology patients in the ward I work on and sometimes it is depressing thinking about what the patients and their families have to go through. Hopefully a cure will be found someday.

He is so adorable! That is very sad story. I don't know what I would do if one of my children where to ever go through this.

I will keep him in my prayers. Thanks for sharing this wonderful story.
