USA/KSA: American Bedu Speaks Out on Cancer


The other day I was watching some youtube videos and wondered how easy (or difficult) it can be to just sit and make your own youtube video.  I went to www.youtube.com and read how to set up my own account or I guess I should say ‘channel.’  It seemed fairly straightforward so I pondered for a few minutes on what would I wish to say to the world.  Actually it was not hard to decide.  I wanted to speak out on cancer.  I  wanted to speak out with facts yet at the same time inspire hope and encouragement to others.

I will be the first to admit that the quality and sound is not the best.  That’s one aspect I have yet to work on and figure out for future videos (if I dare to try again).  However I have chosen to share this video, poor sound quality and all, with readers of my blog for I am sincere with my message and hope that it may help someone whose life has been impacted by cancer whether as a patient, caregiver or someone whose life has changed due to the diagnosis of a loved one with cancer.  Cancer does not care what nationality or religion its victims are and support is available for everyone.
