Today, my mother came over to take Tee and I out for tea. Bless her heart.
The woman has been suffering a long time from her cancer and what more, now she is suffering from her whole mouth of teeth rotting one by one. She cannot eat!!! And survives on yoghurt, ice-cream and soup. The dentists and other specialists are working desperately to save as much as they can just to enable her to continue eating. And it’s all costing a bomb.
However, today she came from another dental appointment and surprisingly, the specialist didn’t charge her at all. Her treatment took an hour and a half and the dentist eventually told her that doing her teeth was very stressful and that they (the dental team) were going to discuss her case this evening when they played tennis. Huh?
Anyway, my mom showed me her tongue and it was SO obvious that the cancer has spread. There is a huge lump under her tongue the size of 1.5 x 0.5 centimetres and three quarters of her tongue looks horrific. Swollen and as though there is a monster mass trying to get out.
We just act as though it’s nothing and push it under the carpet but deep down, we’re all super terrified. Her ENT even joked and said, “Well, who knows? It may drop off!!!”
Who is Mamapumpkin?
Mamapumpkin spent 7 years in London committing crimes to gain her Bartlett BSc in Architecture. She spent 7 years as a Stay At Home Mom raising her children as documented in this Mamapumpkin blog since over 10 years ago and thereafter returned to the Corporate World stronger than ever. Her last job as Country Director of a British Railway Signalling organisation saw her getting ill with an aortal and mitral heart valve regurgitation and early stage cancer. Through her journey from working to not working to working again, she sets out to prove to all women that they can do anything and everything that they set out to do; as long as they have that fire of desire burning within and the drive to work hard. Even better with oodles of love, passion and integrity.
Despite being ill, she has grown a network marketing business from very little knowledge and experience in the otherwise infamously known MLM (Multi-Level Marketing) industry, racing from an income of ZERO to RM 100,000 monthly in merely 2 years. She is a firm believer of the MLM business model but realises the pitfalls too and understands how and why the majority of people would shy away (or zoom far away) from any MLM business.
She is now pondering the title of her new book, From Zero to 100,000 RM monthly in 2 years and has a sequel in the pipeline with the aim of helping real professionals succeed in the World of MLM. Always the giver, Mamapumpkin has supported orphans for over 30 years and has now extended her care to the sick, single mothers, and even struggling families. She believes that with the MLM business model, we can all have a life of our own desires to enable real contribution into the world.
A beautiful life without limits.
Mamapumpkin currently manages the Homeschooling Hub Malaysia on Facebook. She also runs Working Women Malaysia (not THAT kind of Working Women!), Mamapumpkin - Creating A Life of Abundance, and Funky Moms on Facebook to offer REAL support to all women who want career and life success. She is a living testimony that women really can have a lot. Being financially free has enabled her to travel the world anytime anywhere doing anything, and she spends most of her day to day with her children, reading and supporting other women.
