I have not had any experience with relatives or friends suffering from cancer, nor have I seen up-close the struggle of someone diagnosed with it. However, I do not believe that this should delegitimize my sympathy for the cause. I deeply understand the helplessness which tortures the hearts of those who care for the people afflicted with incurable diseases such as cancer, and it inspires within me a desire to contribute a little something, however small a gift I can donate. I enjoy tutoring, but I did not ever tutor with money in mind. Hence when I was offered some pay for the help I gave others, I decided that instead of accepting the money for myself, I would use it to support a worthy cause such as cancer research.
