Spoken Words

Hello world! My name is Cristian. I had diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma, it’s a tumor in the brain stem, my daddy fought so very hard for me, with me, stood by my side while I was asleep, talking to me, holding my hand, he told me he loves me more than any dad can, just love couldn’t ease my pain, so I was called on, and I am with the first five letters of my name. Although I am only 7 god had a place for me in heaven, he’s the best doctor of medicine, I’m strong, I can run really fast, me and the kids here play all day, it’s lots of fun and games, dad I’m really the conductor of my very own toy train! I still watch JJ the Jet Plane, and Caiou, I know how bad you wish I can watch it with you, so do I, daddy I’m watching you closely, just up here in the sky, the kids are calling me now I gotta go, I just want to say bye dad see you in your dreams, I love you… Choooo choooooooo
