The play ‘Oxygen’ was getting very good response from the audience. She was a playwright but this was the first time she was acting in her own play. She was playing the female lead. The play was about a woman who made courageous choices to enrich her otherwise dying life.
People were mesmerized by her acting and many declared her the budding star and a woman of substance.
After today’s show, she was back to her changing room. Sitting in front of the mirror, she was looking at her reflection. She took her wig off and touched her head. It was a strange feeling.
She was going through chemotherapy. When she was diagnosed with cancer, she did not have many choices and she chose to fight it back in her own way. She chose not to stop living.
Strength was her oxygen and she was breathing one moment at a time.
The next minute, she shook herself up and started getting ready for the next show.
