5-7% ROI

But what if this meager improvement was looked at in a different light...

What if I told you that 5-7% could mean an extra 6 days with your new baby, an extra 6 weeks vacation, an extra 6 months severance pay, or an extra 6 years of LIFE???

This menial percentile is not looking so penniless now is it?

These were the odds quoted to me if I do chemotherapy. I have ben told that proceeding with the therapy will enable my body to have a 5-7% better chance against tumor re-occurance. I have also been informed that the type of cancer I have is known for high re-occurance rate- in fact, the doctors are still surprised that they only found the one tumor. (and surprised is an understatement)
So, while 5-7% sounds small in our ever-hungry world that is searching for more, the best and the most- I plan to take it, gratefully. I am thankful that there is something that can offer me and my family this slice of hope. While it is only a spark in some peoples point of view, I also know that it only takes a spark to light a fire.

I pray that I will be a raging fire for God in this process, since he has given me this opportunity to do. I will not walk away, but instead plan to fan the flames!
