‘Wish’ is a verb and a noun

Don | Physician |

Wish is a verb and a noun, an action in some instances and something tangible in others. Sometimes, I think of wishes as unrealistic – a fantasy that could not come true. However, as I get older I realize that wishes and wishing represent hope. And, I believe, one never should abandon hope, no matter what the circumstance.


  1. I am a 17 yr Inflammatory breast cancer survivor, with recent re-occurrence. I’m currently on my 9th different treatment ranging from aromatase inhibitors to taxol IV. I am hoping that the taxol will work because I have growing tumors in my liver and a new lesion on my spine. Life is so precious to me that I want to live for a while!!

  2. My biggest wish is I can avoid a reoccurance. Avoid dying the same way my Mom and Grandmother died. A wish to be a whole lot smarter living my life. Not wasting time and energy on people or things that don’t warrant it. A wish that I get to see people enjoying more, suffering or struggling less. A wish to be able to give back and make a difference. A wish to always be value added no matter what the situation may be.
