He immediately moved me to his house where my family rehabilitated me and everyone took care of me. My world transformed from a hell to a paradise. Now I had everything and everybody with me.

Chronic bronchitis is a curse and my daughter suffered from it for almost three years. Those three years were very difficult for her as she had to go through severe coughing which caused a lot of pain. She also complained of suffocation and breathlessness. We tried many doctors but none could cure her completely. We had almost given up and we even stopped to give her medication anymore. But my daughter never gave up and always believed that she could get rid of bronchitis. She asked me to stop smoking and avoided polluted places. This helped her to keep air in the lungs clean and her condition improved. After a few weeks she healed and started living normally. From that day I see a great person in my daughter who inspires me to fight any challenge in life.

One evening I was reading a book and I went through a passage which was about a cancer patient who fought the disease with great courage. I was really moved by his strength and then I realized mine problem was nothing compared to the cancer patient’s disease. My thinking changed so I tried various medicines and finally got rid of the bronchitis.
