I started Must Triumph on February 8, 2015. I began it from a pull-out bed at City of Hope Cancer Hospital. It was almost a year that I lived and wrote out of that hospital room before my mom passed. In six years, I lost my sister, my father, my dog, my mother, and my father-in-law. Before I wrote a single article, this was the first thing I wrote:
Some fans find my topics random, perhaps unrelated to their demographic. If you've ever wondered who I am writing for, or who my intended audience was — it is to those who have suffered loss, those who are sick, and to their caregivers. That will always be the true intent of this project. But I am grateful to find my writings about the deeper meanings of life resonating with so many others out there.
I hope knowing the origins of this project makes this place more purposeful to you. I wrote it for others like me. And if I were somehow able to talk to the me from the past, these are the things I would wish to tell him — to prepare him for everything that was coming, and to soothe him when they came.
