Welcome back to Free My Cure. My name is Nicola and I am a Terminal Stage 4 cancer patient. I turned to cannabis 4 years ago and I haven’t looked back since. I have improved my quality of life by 10 percent and I don’t plan on stopping here. Join me on the journey to find a cure for my cancer using cannabis!
Technology today is a blessing and a curse when it works we can conquer the world. As I look back on my life I think about the people I’ve loved and lost and the two people that are always on my mind are my mom and dad. I lost my mom about 7 years ago to addiction among other things and when I look back on the memories of her I remember what she looked like, I remember how bubbly she could get and how angry she could get, but her voice was the first thing I forgot. Her voice that sang and danced around the house when she was happy, the contagious giggle she had, the sternness in her voice when we did something wrong, and sadly the voice I wished to many times wouldn’t say anything to me when I was mad at her, I lost first.
Memories are triggered by so many things, smells, touch, visual cues, and so much more you can hold on to an image in your memory but, a voice is much harder emulate when it’s gone. My brother and I were very lucky, my mom was a radio DJ and we still have some of her spots and shows so when I need a moment with my mom I just play her demos.
My father, he passed away 4 years ago to cancer, I have memories and pictures but I don’t have his voice anymore. I lost the sound of his voice about three months after he passed, and that’s the reason for this segment.
We have so many resources at our fingertips all the time now, why not leave your loved ones with your voice. Smartphones, tablets, computers, and the internet have made it possible for you to leave your loved ones a short video letting them know some of the things you couldn’t face to face. I decided to try it for myself so I want to share with you how I did it.
If you have a Gmail you already have access to youtube, you can make a video and post it on youtube keeping the setting private, always have someone you trust when doing it this way so they can send the video to its destination when you pass. Keeping the setting set to private ensures the only people to see it is whom you intend it for. If youtube isn’t your thing I get it, record the video from a smartphone, tablet, or computer saving it to a flash drive or even DVD, at this point you can seal it up in an envelope address it to the person or family and entrust it to someone with instructions to send it after your passing. One of the neat things about doing it on a flash drive is you can change the recording as time goes on to keep it current. I recommend anyone make these video’s for the purpose of their families tomorrow is not guaranteed, and you don’t need to be sick to make sure your loved ones know how much you love them.
STAY FREE, FLY HIGH, AND AS ALWAYS FUCK CANCER!
