When Life Throws You A Curveball

It all started with a limp. My wife and I thought that our four year old son (Shaan) was having growing pains when he was complaining about pain in his lower left leg.

On April 8th, 2010, my world was rocked when my son was diagnosed with Leukemia, which is a blood cancer.

Childhood cancer is extremely rare and since there was no history of cancer in either of our families, this hit me like a freight train going 1,000 kilometers an hour.

There were over a million questions racing through my mind such as what, where, when, why and how?  There is no reason why leukemia happens in children and in some cases, babies are even born with it.

They immediately started chemotherapy treatment on Shaan and started looking at what specific type of Leukemia had started in his body.

Thank God he was diagnosed as having Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL), which is considered a “good” blood cancer in terms of treatment. The cure rate is as high as 90% with proper treatment.

I cancelled all my travel plans and Internet marketing activities. I cancelled my trip to System Seminar in Chicago. I cancelled my presentation at the Magic Bullet Seminar and dropped out of Jeff Johnson’s “Traffic Voodoo” course as one of the content providers.

I also cancelled my MobiBlueprint product launch.

Nothing seemed to matter to me anymore.

I stayed with my son every day and night since he was admitted on April 5th and after 43 days of being at the hospital, we both came home yesterday.

He has a long road ahead of him with an additional 22 months of treatment, but the prognosis looks good as he is now in remission.

Some of the things I learned from this experience:

1. No more spending 10 hours in front of the computer each day. Life is too short to spend in front of a monitor all day.

2. Money doesn’t mean much without health. Health is the real wealth.

3. No more complaining about paying taxes. Health care is free in Canada and the care that was provided for Shaan can’t be matched in terms of quality.

4. I need to restructure my business. As soon as I stopped working and disappeared, my employees were left twiddling their thumbs.

5. Charity. If the wealthiest people in the world just gave up 10% of their assets, it would solve problems such as world hunger. It is time for all of us who have been blessed with wealth to start giving more.

If you are a parent, I hope you NEVER have to go through this experience and if your child ever complains of any small aches or pains, get it checked immediately.

Shaan is a fighter and he will come out of this stronger.

Take care,

Gauher Chaudhry

    As a father myself I can only imagine what you are going through. Please accept my best wishes for his speedy recovery!

  3. Gauher,

    Man, that is absolutely a parent’s worst nightmare (almost… I’m glad he’s in remission), and I just want you to know your son, you, and the rest of your family are in my prayers.

    Back when my own son was struggling through his seizure disorder, you were one of the few marketing buddies who took the time to keep up with how he was doing, and I want you to know that I truly appreciate that, and will be forever grateful.

    Never hesitate to contact me, even if you just need someone to vent to. I mean it.

    My best,
    Andy Hussong

  4. Sorry to hear about the struggles of your family. And I’m glad to hear the positive news as well. Sounds like you’ve made a lot of really healthy and positive decisions around this.

  5. Kirt Menon

    You, your wife and Shaan are not alone. you will all come out of this healthy and happy. Our prayers and best wishes are with you all the time.


  6. My family will say a little prayer for you tonight.


  7. Tikyda

    May Allah makes him recover soon.

  8. I thought we had it bad enough. A daughter who is a wheelchair user because of lupus. My husband lost his sight overnight and I have multiple Arthritis. But for a child to have to endure so much —. The key is to keep going and not even consider that recovery won’t happen. There is always somebody worse off. I wish you all well from the bottomof my heart.

  9. Adam

    May Allah bless you and your son brother.
    Its just part of life, the battle. Remain strong, God be with you & Bless your family.

    Inshallah your son will come out of this just fine. My family and I will pray for all of you.

    I’m here for you bro. Let me know if you need anything.

  12. Wish your son good health and a speedy recovery.

    All will be fine soon.

    Best wishes to all,

  13. Gauher,

    What a difficult experience, yet how profound that you wrote about it in terms of what you learned from it.

    Bless your son for full remission and bless you for sharing your life and your wisdom with us now and in the past.

    You’re quite a leader!

  14. Jay

    Gauher, your family is in our prayers. I was wondering what had happened to you. I wish a speedy recovery for Shaan. Oddly enough I’m involved with a company that is committed to funding advances in Child Leukemia. Family comes first!

  15. Hi Gauher, I will pray for your family – really. I missed you at the Magic Bullet seminar.


  16. Wow…unreal. I’m just glad that it is the “good” kind an can be treated. God Bless.

  17. Wow!

    Thank God Shaan’s pulled through. Thanks for sharing this very intimate story Gauher. In the UK we also have free healthcare and I have to admit its really helped family member including myself in those unexpected moments.

    All the best for the future. And Shaan a big hi-5 from a friend across the pond.

    One Love

  18. Gauher

    Life can hit you real hard sometimes and brings you down to earth with a THUMP!

    I sincerely wish your son all the very best for a full recovery.

    As a father of 2 this is the kind of nightmare that we dread.

    All the very best and its great to hear from you again.


  19. Gauher,

    First time posting here on your site, however I have been aware of your marketing for some time as I am also a fulltimer.

    I would to offer my condolences to your son and the rest of your family members. My son is my two year old standard poodle “Otis” ….I can only image what you have gone through over the past few months.

    Take care of you and the family ….


    Brian G. Johnson

  20. Marco

    Best wishes and health to your and your family, thank you for sharing as well as your insights about what is important. The best to Shaan and hope eventually your family will come out stronger.

  21. Dear Guaher,

    As a parent of a young child I was brought to tears by your story. Thank goddness I have never had this experience. I pray every night when I kiss my son on his forehead as I head off to bed that he will never have to confront a disease like cancer.

    I think kids take it in stride more than adults do because of their innocense and their belief that life is good. Hug that little boy every chance you get.

    My family’s prayers are with you.


    PS I was born and raised in Canada and I wish we had Canada’s medical system down here in the US.

  22. Gauher, I’m so sorry to hear about Shaan’s illness but you are right: It’s the “good” leukemia with a phenomenally high cure rate that he has. I pray he is cured very quickly, and you can all put this behind you.

    I do agree with you re life is too short to spend hours in front of the computer screen all day. I lost a regular client because I chose to go to my terminally ill mother’s bedside, 1000 miles away, but I’m not sorry I made that choice. The memory of the very special 2 1/2 weeks we spent together will stay with me and comfort me all my life.

    All the best to you and your family.

  23. I pray that everything works out. I know what your going thru my niece went thru a years treatment for the same thing.

  24. Wow!

    Thank God Shaan’s pulled through. Thanks for sharing this very intimate story Gauher. In the UK we also have free healthcare and I have to admit its really helped family members including myself in those unexpected moments.

    All the best for the future. And give Shaan a big hi-5 from a friend across the pond.

    One Love

  25. Gauher, I am deeply sorry for what you have gone through. My thoughts and prayers are with you. As a father I can only imagine how this had made you feel. You have a beautiful boy there and I know he will be ok.

  26. Aghper Jan

    Thank you Gauher for sharing this touching story with us.Makes us think how life is fragile.May God bless your family and give total healing to Shaan.

  27. Jeff

    Great news to hear that your son is recovering. Here’s to a speedy recovery!

    Nothing can ever replace the true importance in life: health, family (friends) and faith.


  28. Mark Alston

    I must say ‘God bless your family’. Your son will always remember that his dad was with him during his time of need. Your a great example of what a parent can do. Many thanks.
    May the windows of heaven be open and have the health of your family restored.

  29. Trevor Weir

    He looks like a fighter too. All power to your son.

    Most interesting points – I know of two families in the states whom are bankrupt due to hospitalization problems just like this. One can really not blame Canada, England or the half dozen countries that have the so called socialized medicine for not allowing their citizens to go into financial ruin due to stuff that simply happens.

    The other interesting point, a re-focusing on how important relationships and family really is. This realization was slow in coming to me too and every now and then, my daughter reminds me patiently of what I am still prone to forget.

  30. It definitely rocks your world when something happens to one of your children. Our middle son had chronic health issues for many years and you really have to become an advocate for them within ‘the system.’ Soooo very thankful to hear that Shaan is in remission AND that you had the freedom to be there to comfort what must have been terrifying for a little guy. Best wishes to your whole family for the time it takes to get him well again.


  31. olumide

    I wish you the best of good health Shaan.
    What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.You will Grow Strong and as a fighter you shall over come

    Gauher Events like this makes us re prioritize our needs and wants. I have two girls and I can relate to what you just Shared.

    I Will have Shaan in my Prayers.
    God bless the Chaudry Family

  32. Your son is beautiful Gauher. Glad to hear you caught the cancer early and he is now in remission. I totally agree with your new found outlook on life.

    Wishing you and your family a healthy, happy future.

    God Bless

  33. Gauher, thank you for sharing your life with us! I applaude you for doing what is right as a Father and making a better life for your son. We need to create a platform doe others to give and be a blessing to others.
    Again, thank you for sharing,

  34. Wow, I had tears in my eyes. I really hope he gets better fast, and I think all your lessons for life are really true.
    Be strong!

  35. Jon

    I’m glad to hear there’s treatment. Thanks for sharing this. I’ll pray for you and your family.

    Thanks and thank you Gauher. Listen what you’ve been through is the worst nightmare and you are right. I went through that too when my wife threatened to divorce me because I had lost my job and also (trying to learn IM for 10 hrs a day and not making a cent in 15 months)and take my 8 year old with her.

    My comfort is in God who supported me through this period of extreme anguish.

    I pray that you will be acquainted with Him and see for your self the treasure of comfort and assurance that rests in The Son of God

    My prayer is with you
    God bless

  38. Billye Thompson

    Hey Gauher,

    As a parent I can only imagine the emotion you and your wife have experienced during your son’s diagnosis, treatment, and recovery. I will be praying for the Chaudhry family. God Bless!

  39. Mike Crosa


    I was very happy to hear your son is getting well. God Bless


  40. Experiences like these put a lot of stuff in perspective.
    Be well Gauher, and stay strong!
    Warm Regards

  41. Hi Gauher,

    It’s so sad to hear what you and Shaan had gone through. However, there is a god, and he knows best.

    One day I sat down and said to myself. I am not hearing from you, all these different launches etc. passing by. But there was a reason.

    Have faith dude and all will be well with you and Shaan.

    Take care.

  42. Kris

    Im sorry to hear this man but this hit’s close to home. I have niece that went through this but the cure rate is very high especially since he is still so young. This will make you and him a much stronger. Good luck and god bless.

  43. James Haney Jr.


    Do not even know where to start. First and foremost, your son and your family as a whole will be in my prayers. Thank you for taking a moment and sharing a reality behind all this internet dream we’re chasing here. That is something that you could’ve chose to keep to yourself but for one reason or another, you saw fit to share. Again thank you. I don’t have children or a wife yet but some of the lessons learned you touched upon are closest to my heart already. If I never read another piece of literature from you know that you have earned my respect and admiration not as a marketer but simply as a man who has not been clouded by the riches and still aware that beyond it all family and health are everything. Peace and Respect Friend.

  44. Best wishes for your son and your family.

  45. Bob Voges


    I hate hearing news like this. I am a 55 year old two time lymphoma survivor. Lymphoma is also considered a blood cancer, and recently I read that if they knew then what they know now, they would have given leukemia and lymphoma a single name instead of two different names. You’re lucky that Shaan’s diagnosis is ALL; he (and you) will go through some tough times but should be fine in the long run.

    Let me put in a plug here for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, a US based charity that funds research and patient services, and their sister organization, Team In Training, which trains ordinary people to complete endurance athletic events to raise funds. Since my second cancer I have completed 3 half marathon fundraisers for L&L. It’s a great organization and recently lost a major donor who had invested with Bernie Madoff.

    I wish you and Shaan and the rest of your family all the best.

    In Good Health,
    Bob Voges

  46. Laidi

    Hey Gauher,

    I’m highly relieved that you kid is well now! I wish the best of all for your family and I hope that such things never happen again for you and your loved ones!

    Bless you,

    Laidi Ferunaj
    from Albania

  47. Good luck Gauher, life throws these things at us, it’s how we deal with it that counts.

    And your right, the best thing you can do in any business is to work out how you don’t have to work in it!

  48. Blessings to you and your family. Let Shaan be everyone’s teacher. I have been going through and deleting all the internet marketing companies as I feel it is not my path. I don’t know what compelled me to open yours. I’m glad I did.

    Take care, Joan

  49. Bruce Paddon

    Our thoughts & prayers are with you & Shaan. You’re right, life has no meaning without your health!

  50. Gauher — you and your family are in my thoughts during this challenging time. I am happy to see that you were able to take time off from your business to be with your son and that you are ready to restructure your life to become an even better version of yourself.

    All the best to you and your family –

  51. Hi Gauher,

    We’re going to pray for your son everyday and send positive energies your way. I am absolutely positive that he’s going to recover in full and will come back stronger than ever. Kids are a miracle. Kiss that handsome boy for me, will ya brother?

  52. Thank God for your son’s improvement and progress made during these past few trying weeks.

    Your comments definitely make me think about my own life. I have 3 young daughters, and trying to learn IM on top of my day job, spending all my time in front of a PC…

    You’re right, life is just too short to spend it like that.

    Continued well wishes for you & your son.


  53. Udi

    My god.. As a parent to a 3 1/2 year old, I can’t think of a scarier scenario. This IS the stuff of nightmares. I’m sure if you could, you would – without a doubt – take this illness onto yourself.

    My warmest wishes to Shaan, you and your wife. Hopefully soon this will just be a forgotten (unpleasant) memory and Shaan will emerge stronger from this. You say he’s a fighter – he WILL win!

    A friend of mine had cancer ten years ago and made a complete recovery. She has never been the same person since then… completely rediscovered life. Sometimes only things like this puts life in the correct perspective.

    Please be well! Send Shaan a big hug!

  54. Graham

    Hey Gauher

    The most pleasurable things in life quite often don’t cost money and you don’t need money to enjoy. You just don’t realise what you have until you experience the misfortune of having someone you love dearly put that reality into perspective…you only have to look at your photo to realise that

    Happy endings..

    Best wishes


  55. Hi

    Hold on !

    Shaan, there is a Frenchie in a small island lost in the middle of Indian ocean thinking about you just right now.
    I love your smile and I send you ENERGY.
    Kind regards to your dad. He is strong, he is close to you, you’re lucky.

    Take care,


  56. I went down a same road 9 years ago with my daughter having down’s syndrome. She was 1 year old before we found out and then come the waiting to see what other major life threats are ahead of us. A number of children with down’s syndrome have heart problems.

    Thank GOD she don’t have any other major problems.

    But she has already had 5 surgeries and she is only 9. Plus a number of hospital stays and scares.

    I understand your pain as a father.

    Charles Kirkland

  57. We are blessed to be in a country where health care is free…Glad to hear that everything is fine and I am sure Shaan will come out strong. Internet is a blessing and when you make money from home you can afford to spend time with loved ones….

    God Bless

  58. Chris Donaldson

    My prayers to you and your family – your best post yet.

  59. Dave

    Hey Gauher,

    I’m glad to hear Shaan is doing better. Cancer affects so many of us these days, directly and indirectly, so it’s great to hear a good outcome.

    All the best,

  60. Jim K

    Glad to hear he’s responding well to treatment. Hoping for his quick recovery and praying it is cured.

  61. Hey Gauher,

    My hear goes out to you and Shaan. The good news is that he is on the path to recovery, and all will be well very soon.
    I will remember you guys in my prayers.
    You are right, there is nothing as important as good health. That is why we should set our priorities right, and chase after only the most important things, like family and wellness.

    Take care and God bless you.

  62. Yogi Patel

    Thanks for sharing your personal life experience. I wish same that no one have to face these type of issues ever in there life.

    I also have two daughter and I can completely understand your pain. all i would say is GOD BLESS SHAAN.

    My goal is same as i starting to make good income should donate portion of that charity.


  63. Gauther, I have been just getting my feet wet in the web marketing world. Still quite a “newbie”
    Anyway, I am so happy for you and your family. I have two beautiful 11 year old girls and I can not even imagine such a terrible ordeal like you went experienced.
    Through it all, God is Good! You have been blessed. All my best, John Sundquist

  64. Gaugher,

    Life throws us a curve ball once in a while to get us grounded in what is truly important in/about life.

    I’ve had a few of curve balls and today you certainly give people a reason to pause, assess life, and best of all put balance in where it might have been missing.

    As a proud supporter of Make-a-wish and several other organizations, I acknowledge your courage to reevaluate and restructure your life, and especially to share it with us openly.

    Consider getting your son a wish – they are granted to children with life threatening illnesses, not solely terminal children.

    Give it some thought as the wish is about your son and altering his experience of life.

    == Your strength and commitment shines ==

    A parent too

  65. Ana

    My prayers are with all of you.

  66. Lee

    I’m sorry to hear about your son, Gauher. As a single mother I completely appreciate how precious time with our children is- my thoughts and prayers are with your family.

  67. It is so good to hear that your son is doing well and the treatment is working.

    I will keep you, your son and your family in my prayers.


  68. Hello Gauher, your story is very strong, a very valuable message, sometimes life is going in so many little things that most importantly we leave aside, it is incredible, just today I was questioned about the amount of hours I spend in front of the computer…

    I send a big hug to your son, sure everything will be fine and will complete happiness.


  69. Lee Sanft


    Wow, all emotions, first sorry to hear of your son’s illness, then wall-to-wall smile to read that he WILL be OK.

    Your words echo those of another good friend of mine. We were at a mastermind session and his phone kept ringing all the time. He mentioned that no-one seemed to know what to do in his absence; and that he needs to have at least 2 of himself, one to stay while the other goes.

    His name is Bimi and he is from Sri Lanka. You remind me of each other as you are both so incredibly intelligent that most of your associates cannot keep with you.( ahh, the curse of too smart; or the curse of surrounded by less than too smart?)

    Anyhow, I wish you and your family the best. How wonderful it is, for many reasons, to live in Canada, today; especially for the medical care.

    One of my favorite daily thoughts:
    “You make a living by what you get,
    You make a life by what you give”

    Lee Sanft
    p.s. – hey, you marketers are always doing this….Eat healthy, organic foods. Eating right will help take care of your sons body & mind.

  70. Bob

    Hi Shaan,

    We wish you all the best in your speedy recovery – you are a very brave young man.

    You also have the best Dad in the world. Though many have not yet met him – we know he has a big heart and the respect of many who admire him.

    Personally, we call him a good friend.

    Shaan, our thoughts are with you in this journey and we look forward to shaking the hand of another great man – namely you.

    Best from Athens,
    Bob (& Paula)

  71. Leila Klin

    Hi Gauher,

    I have been on your mailing list for a very
    long time. I have watched your business grow
    and you with it.

    I was very sad to learn about your dear
    little son. You are going through a bad
    time but believe me with prayer and courage
    you son will get well.

    He is brave and with the love of his family
    he will pull through.

    Let me know of his progress.

    With love and a speedy recovery.

    I have to admit, when I read the title on your email – I thought it was another “Oh, what is he marketing now…” email. Which, by the way, I LIKE TO RECEIVE from you. 🙂

    However, upon reading the email and blog post – I have to say – that you have absolutely blew my mind.

    Although, you have went through EVERYTHING – I found myself feeling the same thing – as if I went through it with you.

    You have absolutely changed my focus!

    Hence, this was the BEST “what is he marketing now…” email I have EVER and WILL EVER receive.

    My prayers go out to you, Shaan, and the rest of your family. I feel in my heart that everything is going to be great.



  73. Gauher,

    Glad to hear Shaan is doing well. I will keep him and your family as well all cancer families in my prayers. Keep praying and God Bless!


  74. Gauher,

    I really was lost not hearing from you for so long…

    My heart goes out to you and your family, by stopping what you was doing to be with your son shows the HONOR you have for your family…not work…

    Best Wishes,
    Sam England

  75. Gauher,

    What an eloquently written post. I’m sorry you had to write it though.

    Your lessons learned are, indeed, valuable ones and a good reminder to keep the real mission front and center – and no, it isn’t (at least not for me) to make as much money as possible.

    Life is for living – in so many more ways than just work, work and more work.

    I’m delighted that Shaan is in remission.


  76. Joe Stewart


    I’m so happy for you and your family that this has turned out to be something that can conquered. Our children our a precious gift from God and when something happens to them it can be torment for the parents.

    I know this from personal experience. My only daughter, Heather, drowned on Halloween night of 2006. She had just turned 21 ten days before.

    You learn to live with it, but it’s a pain that will never heal.

    I’ll pray for your son to return to health and for the strength to endure what he now faces.

    God bless you and your family.



  77. Hi Gauher,

    I could not agree with you more.

    It takes things like this to make us realize just how mortal we all are, just how short life really is and what kind of legacy are we going to leave behind for our kids, family and even our friends when we depart this earth.

    All the money in the world means zilch without ones health. However, having said that, just imagine all the GOOD we can do in the world and the amount of people we can help with the wealth we create.

    Personally I don’t believe money and wealth is the problem as long as we NEVER let it get to our heads.

    Glad to see little Shaan is looking and doing well.

    Give him my love and best wishes.

  78. Gauher,

    I am sorry your family is dealing with this ordeal. I am happy to hear you have your priorities straight and stayed by his side. I appreciate this post very much because so often we complain about things that are trivial. All too often people do not realize this until something bad happens. Thank you for the reminder and sharing your story.

    Shane Smith

    God has something better in store for this world.

    Revelation 21:3,4
    With that I heard a loud voice from the throne say: “Look! The tent of God is with mankind, and he will reside with them, and they will be his peoples. And God himself will be with them. 4 And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.”

  79. Gregg Sugerman

    Wow Gauher. I cannot tell you how happy I am to hear that your son will be ok. What a blessing that all the success you’ve had in your career allowed you to drop everything and spend that time with your boy.

    Here’s to hoping your son continues to be happy and healthy until he’s old and grey. Not many kids his age will be able to list “Kicked Cancer’s Ass” as an life accomplishment.


  80. Gauher, thank God he’s doing better now and is on the road to better health. Family first…always.

  81. Ron

    I feel for you.
    My son passed away 3 years ago with testicular cancer. His prognosis went from 5 years to 3 then to 1 then it was 8-9 months then thru the summer and in about a few weeks. all total he lasted 11 months.
    It’s hard, I know it.
    God be with your family.

  82. Outthinking

    I am very happy for your family. That’s great news.

  83. Anne Meier

    Dear Gauher,
    I must say I was very moved by your email today updating me about the recent events in your family life. I lost both of my parents to cancer but I can only imagine the helplessness and grief a parent must feel when a child is diagnosed with such a scary disease. I am glad to hear that Shaan is in remission and the future is looking positive, I will include him in my prayers. The photo you sent of Shaan is adorable and reminded me of my son when he was 4 years old. I have always thought that this was one of the best stages in his growing up.
    I was inspired by your story to make a donation today to the Childhood Cancer Foundation.
    I hope you will all continue to be well.
    Best Regards,

  84. LDestang

    Very strong words Gauher and so true.
    Like I allways say : Family and Friends are life’s greatest ‘F’ treasures. Don’t loose sight of them.
    I pretty sure Shaan will fight back bro.
    Good luck.

    Hi Gauher,

    Sorry to hear your son got sick,but glad to hear he’s in remission and feeling better. I wish Shaan nothing but the best, and a long and healthy life.

    Hi Gauher

    So much of what you say is the truth and yes Shaan looks like a fighter and a warrior! I wish him all the best for the months ahead but I suspect that he will take it all in his stride.

    Take care


  87. I wish you all the best, and more importantly Shaan

  88. Hey man,

    Wow after reading your post I got a chill down my spine. So sorry to hear about that bad news. As a parent myself of 2 boys, that kind of news would hit me like a freight train too.

    All the best to you!

  89. Gauher,

    Your courage (and your wife’s and Shaan’s) is commendable. I have 4 kids and I can never imagine what you must be going through. Stay strong.

    Abe Cherian

  90. Gauher, Thanks for sharing your story. How scary.

    I admire you for putting your family first and staying at your son’s side. You’re right – money doesn’t mean much without health. Or without your family. We waste time complaining and forget to feel grateful. Thanks for the important reminder!

    I wish your family all the best,

  91. Niko

    I am very sorry to hear about your experience Gauher and I wish your son a full and speedy recovery. Yes, sometimes it takes life changing events to show you what is ‘really’ important. Your family and your health are the most important things. Everything else is an extra, money included. Yes, it is nice to have some money, but never let it be your god.

    Wishing you and your family all the best.

  92. Jan

    Wow…thanks for sharing…and best wishes to all of you.

    Life can really do this…to anyone…and the sitting at the pc 10 hours…yeah…start realizing what you might really enjoy instead…

    best of luck mate


  93. Hi Gauher,
    Wow…i cant even imagine what you & your wife must be going through…
    It’s so true, that the real wealth are the people who are around us but sometimes we get distracted and focus on materialistic things.

    I hope Shaan recovers soon and may god give him a bright future. Please give him my best regards.

    God Speed!

  94. Gauher,

    Sorry to hear of what you’ve going through, but glad to read Shaan is home and on the mend. His speedy recovery is in my thoughts and prayers.

    Sometimes it takes a tragedy to see the true priorities in your life.

    God Bless,


  95. Dear Gauher,

    I have a 4 year old Daughter and could not even begin to imagine what you and your wife went through when finding out that your son Shaan was diagnosed with Leukemia.

    It surely puts life into perspective,
    and makes us realize how valuable our loved ones are, and our time that we spend working,
    and or complaining about petty stuff.

    Thank you for sharing your story,
    and I hope that everyone reading it receives a wake up call from your posting.

    Praying for Shaan, and your family.

    God bless.

    Welcome back, Gauher.

    I was just wondering yesterday, where you were. I’m glad you and your son have come through the last six weeks.

    As your son is getting stronger, I believe you are already stronger because of the changes to your mindset.

    I know as I write this that you are more aware now, than you were two months ago, of your true wealth and blessings.

    All the best to you and your family,


  97. Richard

    Hi Gauher,

    I was deeply moved by your story. No doubt you will get many comments on this.

    Some times God takes away something from you for awhile, and then gives it back again.

    It’s as if He is saying, “look, you are taking taking too much for granted here buddy. I think I will give you a wake-up call.

    I believe your son will get better.
    Best regards,

  98. Dennis Rosenberg


    All my best wishes to Shaan for as speedy as possible a recovery.

    I too have looked into the abyss with two of my three children, who have both thankfully come back from the edge to lead healthy lives, as we pray Shaan will too.

    It is impossible to experience events like this without being changed. Gauher, you have been a leader in our community of internet marketers and I know you will continue to lead by example as you work through these profound events.

    I look forward to learning more of what you make of this and how it will be reflected in your life. I know you have the support of many, many people behind you, including me.

    All of my best wishes to you and your family,
    – Dennis

  99. Our hopes, prayers, and thoughts are with you, thank you for sharing this personal note.

    My Mum is 10 years Cancer free after recovering from ALL. The Canadian health care system served her well too.

    Be confident that Shaan will recover. He’ll show you amazing strength, and you’ll be proud to be his dad.

    Chris (Guelph)

    It is good to hear from you, and I am sorry to hear about your son! I have said a prayer for your family, that Shaan will heal quickly and heal fully and that you will all grow closer and stronger as a result of this.

    It is a valuable lesson to learn and try to remember on a daily basis – that life is too short and family too important to sit in front of the computer all day and night.

    I took a vacation a few weeks ago and for the first time in years, I didn’t touch my computer at all. I used my cell phone to check emails about once or twice a day, but that’s it. I survived. My business survived. And I had a blast spending a week with my family – fully focused on them.

    Now that I’m back home to work, I am trying to get better at spending more time with my family and less time at in front of the screen.

    Thanks for the reminder. I will try to do better.

    God bless you and your family!

    Hi Gauher,
    I have children myself and would do the same thing. BOL,Art

  102. John


    Thank you for sharing this. I’m very sorry to hear of these struggles. Your post has given me a new perspective. I will say some prayers for your son’s health and your families strength and happiness during this time.

    God bless my friend, and thank you for always giving more than most with what you do,


  103. Dear Gaugher,

    This news is overwhelming. I have thought of you many times over the past weeks, wondering…
    but never expected anything like this.

    My heart goes out to you, Shaan, and your family.

    You are all in my prayers for continued good news and ongoing remission.

    With much love,

  104. Hi Gauher,
    My thoughts go out to you and your family. I’ve been through a similar experience and know how terrible and frightening it can be. It also made me re-evaluate things but almost a year later I find myself in the same traps. Thanks for posting and reminding us all that good health is the most important thing.


  105. All the best to your son and your family!
    May he get well soon!

    He looks like a (cute) warrior and will finally gain strength out of this fate!

    We Humans often fall prey to the thought that money is what it´s all about. We become robots forgetting that money should only enable us the life we desire.

  106. Ben


    WOW! Our thoughts a prayers go out to your little boy and your family for his continued recovery. What a cute little guy you have; he obviously gets his good looks from his mother 😉

    Having experience with a VERY serious life-threatening injury to one of my sons, I have some idea of what you’re going through – and it ain’t much fun. Stay strong and POSITIVE!!!

    Once again, all the best, going forward…


  107. Gauher,

    My heart is with you, your son, and your wife. I will send positive vibrations your way and may great strength and understanding be forthcoming.

    All my best, and hang in there.


    PS. What a good looking son you have there. He smiles with his eyes.

  108. mo

    salaam gauher,

    i was kind of wondering where you’ve disappeared to.
    as a parent myself i could imagine the trauma you must have gone through.
    good to hear shaan is getting better.
    inshallah he will make a full recovery soon.

    take care

  109. Gauher:

    You are one of the few people I listen to in this area. Your family is in my prayers. I’m positive you will see Shaan grwoing and becoming a great man as his dad. I am in a similar situation with my sister since December, and now seeing positive results despite that the first diagnosis was terrible. Don’t lose faith. With treatment, better food and love, this will pass soon.

    Best wishes

  110. Dave


    Having a 2 yr old daughter myself i can almost feel your pain. I wish you all the best.


  111. Geoff

    Hi Gauher.

    Sorry to hear about this.

    Wishing Shaan a great recovery to good health.

    Best wishes to you and your family.


  112. That’s awesome man….sometimes it takes a curve ball to sharpen your compassion

  113. May God completes Shaan’s cure with his mercy. I lost a son before and I know how you felt while in the hospital and there is nothing in your hands to do except for prayers.

    Me too. No more complaining about taxes.

  114. Larry Bortles

    Hey Gauher, thanks for sharing your experience on this. Indeed, what a vicious blow it must have been to you and your bride when you received this news on your precious son.

    I, too, put work as my first priority in my younger years, an unrecoverable loss to me and to my young children.

    It’s great that you now have this new perspective and a positive prognosis for Shaan. You and your family will be so much better now for having had this experience and an entirely new perspective.

    I’m now on my 6th life and 2nd wife, and believe I’m beginning to get it right…

    All the best buddy!


  115. Gauher,

    I’m sure your son will fully recover and like you said,will be stronger.
    I have son (12) too and every day there is a deep concern in my head that nothing will happen.But that’s a way any father is thinking,probably…
    I fully support you in p.2 and 5.

  116. Dustin


    My heart goes out to you and your family. I don’t have children, but I can only imagine what you’re going through.

    Your son will be in my prayers and I know he will pull through and everything will work out.

    Hoping all the best for you,


  117. Every marketer on the planet should read and reread this post daily. May Shaan find the strength needed and gain the needed strength from his Father as he meets this challenge. There is but one priority in Life; it is life itself. Stay happy … stay healthy!

  118. Thank you for your heartfelt insight into your predicament and your way of dealing with the stresses of daily life, your family and business all in one.

  119. Jeff

    May God bless your son with a recovery. Best wishes,


  120. Gerald

    Dear Gauher:

    You are so right…….things that you’ll do for your children you won’t do for yourself.
    You’re a Great father and thank God you have your online business to help with your bills. This experience will forever make you look at life different.

    God Bless,

  121. Gauher, I totally feel for you man. I am going through the same thing right now. I have a very close relative who has been battling cancer for 20 years. It first started with Leukemia about 30 years ago and he was a lucky survivor. 30 years ago the drugs for Leukemia were slim to none and most were experimental. By fate he was placed in an experimental program for Leukemia and it ended up saving his life. Sadly the cancer has come back and is taking over his body, so now he is not doing well. Medicine, these days is so much more effective. I totally agree with you that nothing is more important than family. I’d drop everything in my business to save a life or spend a few extra moments with family, especially in the time of desperate need. Thanks for this post. I wish You, your Family and Son good health and my prayers are with you.

  122. dferrell

    Yo. Sorry to hear about this man. But encouraged by the prognosis for recovery and your perspective. You’re right about health, seem like Internet Marketers just flat out die with no warning. (R.I.P. Raj)

    P.s> Since your in the 10% (tithing) mood, can I just have 10% of your campaigns so I can work them? Just Kidding.

  123. Gauher,
    What a scare! I was wondering where you were….I wish your son a very fast and successful recovery and a long and prosperous life.

    Like you said, Lesson learnt: I will stop my 10 hour days as well!!!

    Again Wishing him a fast recovery,
    The Kohli Family

  124. What a beautiful little boy and I am sure everyone reading this will join with me in wishing him a speedy and full recovery. You are so right about life priorities – nothing really matters apart from those we care about the most.

    Sending every good wish to you and your family.


  125. alexa


    Sending you and your family best wishes for a speedy and easy recovery for Shaan. Life is too precious and we often don’t see what is most important to us until we are faced with crisis.

    Be well,


  126. Robin Islam

    Get Well Soon + God Bless this Beautiful boy.

    Love, Robin.

  127. Ron

    My best wishes to you and your family.

  128. Gauher – I can’t imagine the emotions you must have gone through with this. I wish you and Shaan the best and I agree with the conclusions you have drawn above.



  129. Aaron

    wow…as a parent, I can’t even begin to imagine what u and your wife went thru. I have a 2 1/2 yr old and ever since she arrived, my life has been different. She takes up a good chunk of my time but very rewarding.

    I see your boy in the pic and he’s truly adorable. Gauher, just hang in there and try to be optimistic and also 90% is definitely a good number.

    My Prayers with your family…cheers

  130. Dear Gauher,

    What an awful blow. I’m so glad Shaan is doing well and I wish you and your family all strength and courage to fight this and come out on top.

    All good wishes.

  131. Erik Z

    i dont cry. i never cry. i just dont do it.

    i just cried.

    God Bless You and Shaan.

    I just dont have the words. this is a message that i needed to hear at precisely this exact time.

    i would like to be a part of anything you do – if i could surround myself with people like you Gauher i would be very happy.

    Shaan is very lucky. i will have him in my prayers for a successful recovery.

    thank you so much for sharing this with us.

  132. Trevor

    God Bless Gauher to you and your family!!!

  133. Allyn

    Amen Brotha… Family + Health = Wealth (money is just tool).

    All the best to you and your family. Stay strong Shaan.

  134. charles

    I am glad to hear that you son will be getting better. I have 2 kids about the same age and I can only image the pain and anguish. I am definitely with you about spending more time, I was thinking more and more about it but now it will be a priority. Glad to see you back.

  135. Hey Gauher…

    Happy to hear that your son is recovering… And Shaan is definitely a fighter that will eventually emerge victorious…

    I suppose the life lessons learnt are invaluable and i’m sure all of us here can also learn from your experience too…

    God bless Shaan…

    Health is indeed wealth…


  136. Fabian Lim

    Hi Gauher,

    Sorry to hear about your son’s plight.

    Just know that we folks here in Asia are praying for your son’s complete recovery.

    Let me know if there’s anything that I can do on my end.

    Take care buddy!

    Fabian Lim

  137. Hi Gauher

    I was very moved by your story and can only imagine how difficult this must have been for you and your family.

    My son is 18 now and has never had any serious health issues but when you hear a story like this it makes you realise how every moment is precious and what really matters in life.

    All the best for the future and I hope that everything goes well for Shaan.

    Our thoughts are with you and your family.

    With regards


  138. Gauher, first of all i am glad to hear that things are improving and I pray for your family.

    Last year I had a major life changing experience and yes it is sad when it takes something like that to make you reassess your life.

    As a father of two girls, i can only imagine the horror of feeling that i might loose one of them… I am sorry that you had to go through that.

  139. John Hughes


    I am so sorry to hear that this has happened to you. I can honestly say from personal experience that when a close family member is diagnosed with Leukemia it is a horrifying reality.

    In 2006 my younger brother (who was 22 then) was diagnosed with AML (which is the worst and most aggressive form of Leukima) It all started when he had a fever that lasted an entire week. Then they found a tumor the size of a softball in his chest. And then it wasn’t even until they did the blood work weeks later that they finally realized that AML was the reason for all of it. It was like every week the prognosis just got worse and worse, dwindling our hopes that he would make it.

    After that he went through 3 rounds of chemothearpy, radition and the like. Finally after the third round we did a bone marrow transplant. I was a match and was glad to be able to save his life. That was in 2008. It’s now been 2 years and he is doing great!

    He still experiences some limitations like being on steriods and his energy levels are not quite as high as the average person, but you would never guess the “HELL” I witnessed him go through if you meet him today.

    I’m so glad to hear that your son is doing well and I pray that GOD will help you and your family turn this tragedy into something positive and I agree 100% with the 5 things you learned from this.

    Sometimes we forget what life is really about until we experience something that turns everything upside down.

    Best Wishes,

    John Hughes

  140. Michael

    Children are very special people and life is too short.
    You are a good man and a great father.
    God bless you and your family.

  141. I want to convey my deepest sympathies for you & your family. I have something similar going on with my wife. It is one of the hardest things in life, seeing a loved one go through something like this. I pray that your family remains strong through this entire ordeal, and that everything comes out for the best. Take Care.


  142. Andrew Cherry

    Hi Gauher,

    I am so sorry to hear what happened to you and your precious family. I would like to say that my prayers are with you and your family and I wish your son a speedy recovery.

    It’s amazing how you really find out what’s truly important in life when something like this hits you it puts everything else into perspective, perhaps this is a lesson to all of us we think we can go from day to day and we dont realise how fragile life really is.

    May God bless you and your family as you truly deserve it.

  143. Doug

    Hi Gauher, I wondered why you weren’t at Magic Bullet. I’m glad I didn’t hear about this until there was some good news – truly a nightmare but I wish you, your wife and Shaan the best.

    He looks like a tough kid, he’ll get through it OK. It’s just a reminder to be thankful for what you have and to stop and smell the roses.

    Best Wishes,

  144. Wow Gauher, I’m really really sorry to hear that and I’m really glad to hear that it’s in remission and things seem to be looking better for your son’s health.

    Like you said, it’s things like this that show us what life is really all about. Much of what we tell ourselves is important really isn’t, and much of what we take for granted is what we really should be paying attention to.

    I hope you and your family are able to keep your spirits up through all of this. That will go a long way towards helping Shaan beat this!

    Take care,

  145. Wow Gauher. Just wanted to wish your son, plus you and your wife, the very best; and I hope young Shaan rockets back to great health real soon.

    I’m sure we all agree in theory with what you learned; but I suspect none of us have a clue how intensely you now believe it.

    Spent a great week in Mississauga a few years ago by the way, hope it’s as beautiful now as it was then.

    Good luck – Sean.

  146. Yemi

    1. It is a great pleasure meeting you here in chicago.
    2. Sorry about your son’s situation. Whatever we can do to help, pls do not hessitate to let us (your fans) know.
    3. Thanks for sharing.
    4. Wish you guys speedy recovery. I like this “Shaan is a fighter and he will come out of this stronger.”
    God bless

  147. Gauher my prayers are with you. I know how important family and my kids are to me. It must be so incredibly hard to watch your son have to go through something like this at such a young age. Here is sending you all the love and healing in the world.

  148. These lessons are incredible and I’m so thankful that Shaan is in remission.

    Prayers are with him and your family daily.


  149. Hi Gauher,

    I’m really glad your son is coming through this. Family and friends are way more important than anything else in life.

    You have helped me massively in the past, so if there is anything I can do, please just ask.

    All the best,


  150. James Scott


    My prayers are with Shaan, you and your wife.
    He’s a brave young boy. Your post is a powerful one.

    It makes you think about everything we always
    take for granted and it puts things in

    I’m thrilled that he is now in remission.

    I wish you and your family the best.

    Stay strong, Shaan.


  151. Jet


    Thank you for sharing your experience, and your insights. Thank God everything is alright with Shaan.


  152. Joe

    Hey Gauher

    Man – what news. I’d been wondering what had happened to you. My thoughts are with Shaan, you, your wife and family, and I wish Shaan a speedy recovery and treatment.

    It’s strange to hear bad news and then some good news straight after – like, we missed the 43 days of worry and hear that things are progressing well with your son and the prognosis is as good as could be hoped for at this stage.

    Hopefully your lessons above can make an impact on other people’s lives. I’m going to make a few calls to family tonight!



  153. Dave

    Hi Gauher
    I’m happy to hear that your son is doing well. He is a great looking boy. I have a ten year old son as well and I can’t imagin anything like that happening to him. It’s one thing when something like that happens to ones self but it is devastating when somethng happens to a loved one like a son.
    I wish you all the best

    Dave T.

  154. God bless your son and your family, Gauher. Your experiences really put things into perspective for me. As the father of a two year old little boy, I commend your strength in dealing with this. It will carry you and your family through to his full recovery! I will pray for your little one’s quick return to health.


  155. Gauhar,

    I am very sad to hear what you have gone through and am happy to hear that your son is safely home again.

    May health be your biggest asset in life,

  156. Brigitte

    Just wanted to send you my love and best wishes for a healthy future with a lot of fun together!
    All the best, Brigitte

  157. Hey Gauher:

    Glad to hear that your son is doing better.

    Was wondering what you were up to. Not quite what I expected.

    Great post … I concur wholeheartedly with point number 5 above and, in fact, I joined with Vic Hutchinson a month ago to help him feed starving children in the world. If your interested in learning more:



  158. Gauher,

    I am so happy for you and your family! I just had a little girl born on March 12th. I could not imagine the heartache you went through.

    However, I am so happy that you built a business that ALLOWED you to stay with your son for 43 days…without getting the axe from a “boss”.

    That’s why we do things like this. I have learned that I should treasure…even more… the time I have with my family because time is the only commodity you can’t reproduce.

    Be blessed. And, I hope to see you around (albeit not as much).

    Clifton Crawley

  159. Hi Gauher,

    I am wishing you and your son Shaan the best which for sure is health. Once my son fell of a wall while I was standing next to him, thought he was dead, so I know the sort of feeling, different though.

    Also, I’ve experienced what it means to have a company that depends on you, couldn’t agree more with all of your points. Go for it and make those changes.

    You will make it through, I am sure.

    Take good care and all the best,


  160. Think Like An SOB

    Good luck Gauher. Good to know that Shaan is getting better.

  161. Rudy

    Thank you for sharing such personal matters and I wish you and your family great health!

  162. David

    My best to you and your family – Shaan looks like a fighter! I have an 8 month old son, and I can’t imagine going through what you have been dealing with.

  163. Gauher, dude, what a story.
    So true how we misplace our focus as life keeps giving us more to do.
    Two of my closest friends are both in full remission from the same insidious disease.
    An aside, i was supposed to compete against Lance Armstrong in his last short course pro triathlon before he went to cycling full time, but the first gulf war kicked in and i was over there flying with the Air Force instead, so i could not compete.
    He won the event, went to cycling, then was diagnosed as we all remember, took a brutal and stunning road through it all,and then he REALLY started kicking A$$.
    Hope your son also kicks A$$ through all of this.
    You and your family, too…

  164. Oh my! So heart-wrenching. Very glad that it turned out to be good.
    Prayed already for your son’s total recovery, will pray more.

    Keep strong, keep going. For your son!


  165. Hi Gauther,

    I will pray for your little son, I to have gone through cancer with my daughter she was 44 at the time and it was breast cancer, we don’t know where it came from either but we have been told it is a heredity type of cancer.She had to go through surgery for breast removal and 22 lymph node removal of which 10 were cancerous. She had chemo and radiology and also a needle every month to put her into menopause. She decided to have a historectomy and good thing she did, she had indometreosis which enveloped one of her ovaries to her main artery. A 3 hr. operation, we prayed a lot for that girl and today she is okay but it will always stay in the back of her mind, because the Doctors told her how severe the cancer was. She has 2 daughters and they will have to always be on guard as this cancer is heredity.

    I know what you are going through, have faith, pray and hope. I did not care about any of my business either the only thing I wanted was to have my daughter well again. They are always your children no matter what age they are.

    Keep encouraging your son even when he feels sick…it is the best thing you can do now for him. All the best to you and your wife and God speed his recovery.


  166. Hi Gauher,

    My heart went out for your beautiful son and your family when I read your story about what happened to your son. It must be difficult to go through a frightening experience like that.

    Thank God your son is in remission! I pray that your son will continue to heal and have blessings from above!
    When a crisis happens suddenly, it becomes crystal clear what is most important.

    God Bless,


  167. Thank goodness you’re finally home!!! I know how hard the last 6 weeks have been for you, and I’m so relieved that Shaan has responded so well to the treatments. He’s a heck of a kid and you’re a heck of a dad. You have an amazing family and we’re all blessed to be even a small part of your lives!

    I’m sure we will all benefit from your newfound awareness of the business/life balance. It’s certainly something most of us seem to struggle with.

    Welcome home my friend!


  168. David

    I feel your struggles. Stay strong. For Shaan.

    I have a son who will turn 4 this summer and a year ago my wife was told she had Leukemia. She has since been diagnosed with a blood disorder that is not Leukemia but must be on a chemo therapy drug for a year. Thought of my son growing up without a mother was crushing.

    While I am struggling as an online marketer to replace my $250K/year corporate job I am grateful for the additional time it allowed me to spend with my family. Time is our most precious asset. I once heard that kids spell love T-I-M-E and I believe it.

    Our experiences have made me view the health care reform debate in the U.S. in a new light. Our system needs work.

    Our prayers are with Shaan and your family.

    “Thank God he was diagnosed as having Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL), which is considered a “good” blood cancer in terms of treatment” This is good news!I am sure your young son is robust enough and with the love of his mum and dad hes going to be ok.

  170. I am glad to hear you are back Gauher – I will say a prayer for your son to stay healthy and your family success..

    Your internet friend,

    Thanks for the Update Gaugher!True wisdom…and my family are sending you guys prayers and strength!


  172. Just want to send blessings to you, your son and your wife. Sounds like the bitter food on your plate has turned to sweetness and healing for your whole family– and you are passing that healing on to the rest of us. I look forward to seeing what your massive talents and abilities bring forth for the whole world as you integrate your new understanding of life.

  173. Tamer

    Oh, very sorry to hear about this Gauher…

    I hope your son will reocver soon…

    My prayers goes to him, you and your family.

    Thanks for sharing your personal nightmare. It is great to hear that Shaan is in remission! Best of luck to him.

    And your 5 learning points — excellent advice we should all jump on today!

    Take care.

  175. Peter

    Wow, what an ordeal Gauher, but I guess it could have been even worse. It’s great that you are managing to be so positive. My best wishes to your son for a speedy recovery and to you and your family too. Interesting how these things change our perspective on what’s really important in life..

  176. Art


    Your list of “5 things learned” hits home.

    I’m one of your “early days” PPC Formula customers — and I’ve successfully applied that knowledge 😉

    Over the past few years, I’ve loosely followed your adventures via email/blog.

    What you and your wife have been through this year is tops on my list of greatest fears. My 2 boys are Shaan’s age.

    We’ve never offically met but I am so thankful that your son is on the road to recovery.

    Thanks for sharing this.

    Best wishes to you and your family,

  177. Sorry to hear about your son Gauher,

    It is a wonderful thing that you are able to be by his side and support him. In this high stress world it is often very difficult for parents to drop everything and stand by their children.

    I pray for his complete recovery and a long life for him and the rest of your family.

    I agree with you on spending so much time involved with work and not making time for the good things in life like family and companionship.

    Good luck to your son on his journey. And strength to you and your wife through this.

    Glenn Gehrke

  178. Roberta Loy

    Bless you — thanks for sharing!

    (I like the man you’ve grown to be.)

    God is good. Your boy looks wonderful!

  179. Vince

    Prayers are w/ your son. He is a lucky little fella to have his health and prognosis, and is lucky to have parents like you and your wife, as you are quite fortunate to have him. I’m sure he’ll make it through as you will.

    Don’t read much of your stuff Gauher and what little I do, I know you are in a different leaugue, and yeah…….I sit in front of this machine too much also, but at least you make mooooola, I’m still doing this and then that and then this…..way too much info out there and too many paths too wealth on the net and yet none found.

    So at least your time reaps some reward as it takes you from what matters most which is family. Some, like myself, are taken down this road away from our families not earning enough trying to accomplish being closer to them by trying to find the day to ultimate freedom to spend more time with them by making it work with IM.

    Very ironic. Spending time away to make time to spend with.

    God bless.


  180. Richard Mestas

    Not having experienced what you have gone through, I can only imagine the range of emotions and despair you must have felt. I only hope and pray your son will get better with time. He’s a beautiful boy.

    All my best, Rich

  181. Shiv

    Hi Gauher,

    Good to hear that Shaan is on the mend.
    May he be blessed with a long and healthy life.



  182. Dear Gauher and Shaan

    My best wishes for your future health an success. Shaan you are blessed to have a father like Gauher. Your dad is a man of integrity and I am sure you know by now that his heart is limitless.



  183. Tim


    I’m so sorry to hear about your son. That truly is a devastating blow. I’m so glad that you were able to detect the cancer early and that he is doing better.

    Life does have a lot of mysteries; questions we will never be able to answer. Just keep the main things the main things.

    Remember our prayers are with you and your family.


  184. Gauher, glad to hear your son is home. I had a neice that had the same cancer when she was about six. She is now twenty five, a mother and best of all CANCER FREE. The darkest days should now be behind.

    To a brighter future, Jerry

  185. Dave


    I’m am very pleased to hear of your son’s progress. As a father myself, I can only imagine the challenges you faced. My thoughts are with you.

  186. Guaher, thank you for this post. This is truly where the wealth is in life is in health, I couldn’t agree more, I hope all goes well with the treatment for your son.

    You are currently helping me see some results from your advice in my online business and I aspire to be able to to be financially free, but at the same time I realize that life is so short and we all have to remember to cherish every moment and respect one other and give where we can.

    Thanks Gauher,

    Brian Clark

  187. Terez Sherrod

    I am sorry that you and your family have to go through something like that, but I am glad that the prognosis is good.

    And I hope that clarity you gain from the situation will better your family and business in the future.

    Be blessed.


    P.S. Thanks for all the wonderful information that you share.

  188. Jason

    I think many of us reading this post do sit in front of a computer chasing “wealth” only to watch the important parts of our life slip away from us. Your post really awakened me to what is truly important in life.

    Thank you for sharing your story and I pray your son makes a full recovery very soon.

  189. Gauher,

    My prayers are with you and your family, especially your son. Fortunately the situation sounds like it is heading in a positive direction.

    Having lost my mother 3 weeks ago, at a much too early age, to breast cancer…I can completely concur with your conclusions and how adversity can, and should, change your life in a meaningful way.

    Just hang in there!


  190. Patrick

    As a parent myself, can only imagine how you and your wife must have felt. Thank God that everything is looking up! I pray that everything continues to improve and that your entire family will be strengthened out of this experience.

    …by the way, you hit the nail on the head with your lessons learned!

  191. joe sookdeo

    hi Gauher,

    My heart goes out to you.I will pray for shaan.
    I wish you and your family all the best.

    joe sookdeo

  192. Amen brother.. I will keep your son in my prayers, also know that apricot seeds can help with Cancer I learned this in Mexico from a Dr curing Cancer.


  193. Janet

    Wow! My thoughts and prayers are with you, Shaan and your family! Our children are precious gifts! Sometimes it takes a hard lesson to really open our eyes and hearts and show us what’s truly important. I’m so happy that he’s on the road to good health! If anyone’s interested, here’s the link for bone marrow registry (I think in the US only): http://www.marrow.org/JOIN/index.html

    Thanks for sharing Gauher! We knew something was up, but didn’t know what.

  194. I’m so sorry this has happened to your son and your family.

    I’m glad that he’s a strong boy, that his body knows a lot about healing itself and has put him in remission, and that he has a loving family around him (that’s something that can make the difference in how well the body heals)

    God bless you all


  195. Gerson

    pls check the sites below for information that may be relevant to you and family. Detox (particularly from heavy metals) and nourish with living enzymes, get away from environmental stressors in water, food, EMF etc, use food supplements that provide proven systemic support against leukemia (such as quality Brazilian green propolis of Baccharis Dracunculifolia) and keep your family grounded and away from WiFi, telecom towers or strong EMF(also check new book called Earthing: The Most Important Health Discovery Ever?, the goal is to be grounded 18 out of the 24 hours in a day. According to Dr Sinatra, one of the authors, if this is accomplished, most illnesses will go away).

    treatment. His travels take him across both the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans, from upstate New York to San Diego to Alaska, from Japan to Holland and Mexico.
    In the end, he presents the testimony of patients, scientists, surgeons and nutritionists, who testify to the effectiveness of the Gerson Therapy and shows

  196. Wow. I’m so glad he’s in remission. That’s a very good sign and you are blessed he’s got ALL instead of some of the other childhood cancers. Sorry to hear about all the struggle, but do understand the priorities thing. I’ve been thru it myself and you are correct about health.

    Hope you all the best, and ever want physician discussion or questions, just let me know.

    Sometimes life throws you these curves and we struggle to find answers. I know what you have been thru. Our grandson who is now 3 was born with a tumor in his neck. It’s heart wrenching to see a newborn with all kinds of tubes attached. He was operated on when he was 8 months old and while he still has a trache and cannot talk much, (he signs) he is an otherwise tough little normal 3 year old.
    He’ll need at least one more operation to clean out the remaining tumor but we are expecting the best outcome.
    It’s rough world we live in and we can allow ourselves to be overcome with the problems or we can allow our faith in God to be strengthened. Thanks for sharing.

  198. bob

    Wow. I can’t imagine the nightmare. Thank you for sharing. Good luck, good health to you and your family, and continued abundance.
    I am eternally grateful to you for the information you have provided, and wish nothing but the best for you.
    Those are some powerful revelations!

  199. Hi Gauher,

    I am so sorry to hear about your son’s health challenges and I’m glad to hear of the very high success rate.

    I just want to share a Nutraceutical with you. This has been in existence for 12 years now and if you feel that a person’s nutritional intake is directly related to his/her health you may want to take a look at my site: http://www.enivamembers.com/185876

    Our signature product is called Vibe which is an all-in-one Nutritional Supplement. What’s unique is how the minerals and vitamins are delivered: They are all 4 times smaller than human cells and are absorbed almost instantly which produces astounding results for some of my customers.

    Whether or not you purchase a bottle or two from me will have no effect on my wealth, I just thought you may want to know about this product.

    Good luck with your family.

    Prayers and thoughts of good results for you all to keep focused on being: Whole & Perfect,
    Strong & Powerful, Harmonious & Love, and Happy.


  202. This is highly emotional and touching. I am happy to hear that your little is back home. I wish him quickest and total recovery soon. We missed you while you were away. Welcome back! Btw, great tips about life there. 🙂

  203. As Father as son off course he is fighter all the best.

    {So ironic but my sistes’s daughter also had Leukemia at the age of 6 but unfortunately she is no more}

  204. Louise

    I am very pleased that Shaan is in remission. I have known a few families who have gone through similar experiences and all have had a good outcome. I am sure Shaan will get 100% better and you too will recover. Sometimes it takes something like this to force us to see what really matters.
    All the best,

  205. Jill

    I’ve been wondering where you were. So sorry to hear about your son’s illness but it sounds like the treatment is working. We’ll pray that his condition continues to improve.

    Thanks for sharing your learnings. I couldn’t agree more but it doesn’t hurt to be reminded.

    Take care.

  206. This is highly emotional and touching. I am happy to hear that your little boy, Shaan, is back home. I wish him quickest and total recovery soon. We missed you while you were away. Welcome back! Btw, great tips about life there.

  208. Holy Crap!
    I don’t even know you or your child, but I felt my heart drop when I read what you wrote.

    I too am the father, two wonderful young girls aged 4 and 6. They are my life. Yet, we often find ourselves getting caught up in life, “The Rate Race”, and forget about the simple things that REALLY matter. It is truly unfortunate that it takes events like this to correct our path, and not take for granted the most wonderful gifts that have been blessed to us.

    My two girls and my wife just left for a mini-vacation to visit my wife in Timmins. Being from Canada, you know where that is. I’m from Guelph (not far from you), so with kids in car, it’s about a 12 hour drive. For the last week, I’ve stressed about them being ok on the drive there and back.

    I sincerely hope that Shaan makes a quick recovery.
    Best wishes,

  209. Kevin Madison


    My brother, I fervently pray and give my highest most positive vibration to your family, and especially Shaan. You have no idea how much it touches me to read some of the things you wrote in your address. Some of those same things I’ve been thinking and pondering for months, my friend. I truly, truly mean it, Gauher. I am praying for the comfort and aiding hand of the most high to be with you and your family…NOW!

    Keep rockin’ and tell Shaan Kevin said to do so.

    Peace Brother

  210. Maurice Shuck


    Please accept my best wishes for Shaan, your wife, you and the rest of your family. I have been lucky with my two boys so far, but I understand how this must be for you.

    I hope that Shaan’s recovery will be both fast and complete. I will try to keep him and others going through the same tribulations in my thoughts.


  211. Nitin Mistry

    Hi Gauher,

    I am a father of 2 boys and it brought tears to my eyes when I read your blog post right now re. your son.

    I am SO HAPPY your son’s treatment is a success and the nightmare is over and he is a fighter.

    My mom who lives in Bradford England also had cancer about 6 years ago. Se is in her 70s but she survived and we talk every w/e. I have 4 older siblings that are looking after her – just me here in Toronto.

    I totally hear you and yes we should ALL be very grateful for our health. It’s so easy to forget when we are all wrapped in our own lives and work.

    My prayers are with you and your family.


  212. Gauher, everything you say is soo true. We’re all here for you and your family.

    I quit the 80 hr a wk job 15 years ago to be with my family – without anything but mowing lawns to earn money.

    Health and really love are a person’s and a family’s wealth. You have multiplied your family’s wealth by taking this time to be with, love, and appreciate your son so deeply.

    I think you will be surprised at the resources you have right here among your subscribers, for help with anything you need, so just ask us. . .

    The job I quit was as an MD anesthesiologist, so I might be able to answer some questions when you have them. Others may be able to help hold your business together when you need to be away. . .

    Management now does lean toward “take yourself out of the equation” – we all need to do that more and more as we expand our businesses.

    Thank you so much for letting us know your situation. The opportunities to help you and eachother touch into the abstract idea of the internet as (Peter Russell’s) Global Brain.

    Every cell/subscriber connects with countless others/lists and can contact and marshal unprecedented forces to bear on any problem anywhere on the organism/planet.

    And all of our hearts are with you. Tell us what you need or want, we can do it for you!
    We each are part of everything together.
    Love, Robynne

  213. Phoenix

    So, glad that you had miracle. We miss you and look forward to having you back.

    There is an old saying
    “the poor long for riches, the rich long for wisdom and the wise… they desire only peace & health”

    I hope your family once again is stellar.

  214. Dearest Gaugher,
    Thank U for sharing your life.
    We so often don’t see enough of the “Human element”side of business and People. I Am glad that Shaan is doing well.
    Giving and sharing are what Real success in life and business are make of. Thank U for keeping Integrity alive and letting us out here know what U are dealing with and what’s important! I Am praying/chanting for your family.Blessings, and Love,

  215. Gauher:

    Beautiful beautiful boy. He is so blessed to have a dad like you. So glad to hear that he is doing ok and that the diagnosis was not as severe as it could have been. Hang in there and I will keep you in my prayers. I will also definitely take to heed the information you have provided. Health is definitely your wealth. Take care. http://www.internetmarketingbonusandreviews.com

  216. Solagracia

    I am sorry to hear your son current situation.
    But thanks God he is in recovery.
    He will heal completely I believe.
    Through it all, we learn something more about priority in life which is depend on our value toward life.

    Thanks for the reminder of that 5 points, appreciate it.

  217. Great to hear that your son is doing better. All our prayers are with him.


  218. Gauher —
    You have had the great fortune of an insightful event. You have grown from it. You have loved through it. Blessings to you and Shaan. May the wisdom gleemed from this segment of your journey provide guidance for all the rest of your days.
    Warm Regards,

  219. jake

    Our prayers are with you Gauher. Those are some great revelations you have learned. I think we can all learn something from them. And that is a handsome young man!

  220. Braxton

    So sorry to hear of your family’s trials. Shaan looks like a delight, and I hope his full recovery is a speedy one – it’s fabulous that he is already in remission.

    I see the dark side of the medical “system” every day (in the US – never mind in my travels around developing countries) and am glad to hear your experience has been so positive. When I lived in BC, I heard a lot of complaints, but I know how much worse it can be.

    My thoughts & best wishes are with you…

  221. Joe Lavery

    Hey Gauher… you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. Joe

  222. Hi Gauher,
    You are so right, good health and enjoying family is so much more important than sitting at a computer and doing business.
    I have found the following style of prayer to be helpful, especially if it is repeated many times during the day –
    My son is healed, my son is loved. And then feel your appreciation as you say, thank you God.
    May you be more and more open to God’s blessings, Lalani

  223. Eva

    Hi Gauher:

    You were missed at the Magic Bullet seminar. Now I know why.

    You are soooooo right about health, wealth and sharing. As a 14-years cancer survivor myself I can vouch for your heartfelt message.

    Good luck and many blessings.


  224. Understand with all my heart and really sorry that you’ve experienced all that you have, but it sounds you’ve turning a negative into a positive, so with that I really wish goes well for you and your son.

    Just makes you think, you can not underestimate the wealth of health, family and friends. Hoping all goes well with you and the family!

  225. Jon

    God Bless you & your family Gauher. I hope everything goes well with your son’s treatment.

    It’s good that you were able to learn from this experience. The lesson “Life is too short to spend in front of a monitor all day.” is a valuable one for all of us I think.

    take care,

  226. Hi Gauher

    You don’t know me, just another struggling wannabe IM. When I read your story I was deeply saddened to hear that this happened to your son. I can’t imagine the fear and shear panic that you and your family must have experienced. Nothing, nothing should happen to our children. I was happy to hear that the treatment is going well and the long term prognosis is hopeful. You and your family will be in my thoughts and my prayers.

    God Bless
    Es Riggins

  227. Corey


    I am sorry to hear of this difficulty, but elated to hear Shaan is on the mend. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.


  228. Steve Berriman

    Hi Gauher

    Must be really hard for both your son and your family going through something like that

    I really hope Shaan gets well soon.

    Look forward to getting more emails from you and would like to wish you and your family good luck in the near future.


  229. Haydn Stevenson

    Hi Gauher,

    I am sorry to hear of Shaan’s unfortunate infliction. Please drop me a line to the email you have for me and I can tell you about some things that could potentially make a profound difference to Shaan’s health level.



  230. adam

    Good luck to you and your son! Money is nice, but health and hapiness always come first. Hope for a speedy recovery!

  231. Wow Gauher

    That’s devastating, heartbreaking and inspirational all in one. I appreciate you sharing this very personal episode of your family life.

    And of course, I’m guilty of being WAY too involved with the internet money thing myself (well, I’m 70 percent mobile money since Jan) but you get the idea; on the computer all day and night.

    Thanks for the reminder that LIFE is what’s important not this thing a lot of us probably get in our heads “my life will be better if I have more dough.”

  232. Gauher

    You have my best wishes on the recovery of your son.

    Something you need to look into:

    Vitamin D has been shown to, 1st, prevent cancer, and, 2nd, to aid in the recovery of cancer survivors – [not “victims” – SURVIVORS!]. It is inexpensive. And most people in Canada [and the northern US] are deficient in it. Moreover, you cannot overdose on this vitamin. [I am currently taking 10,000 units daily.]

    In addition to helping to prevent cancer and ameliorate recovery therefrom, Vitamin D also prevents flu, etc.

    John Cannell, MD, founder of the non-profit Vitamin D Counsel, has noted: “Current research has implicated vitamin D deficiency as a major factor in the pathology of at least 17 varieties of cancer as well as heart disease, stroke, hypertension, autoimmune diseases, diabetes, depression, chronic pain, osteoarthritis, osteoporosis, muscle weakness, muscle wasting, birth defects, periodontal disease, and more.”

    For more information on Vitamin D

    Vitamin D Council | Understanding Vitamin D Cholecalciferol

    This is Dr. Cannell’s site. He is the discoverer of the flu-preventive aspect of Vitamin D, and his site has very comprehensive information on Vitamin D.

    Here is a more general article on Vitamin D:

    More doctors focus on vitamin D deficiencies

    Life Extension has their Annual Blood Test [at a considerable discounted rate] until June 7th. I would be a good idea not just for your son but for your entire family to have blood tests not just to determine Vitamin D status but also to uncover other potential health problems.

    Here’s the link: http://www.lef.org/Blood/

    It is member’s-only, but membership is only $45.00 – and highly recommended. [I have been a member since 1998.] There’s a link on the page to become a member.

    I hope this information is helpful to you.

    And I wish your son a complete recovery.

    [Shaan is a very handsome young boy.]


  233. ryan

    God bless your family. Stay strong and proactive.

  234. That’s horrible, Gauher. Glad to hear that things are a bit more positive, even with news like that.

    Good luck to your son and your family and I hope to hear positive things quickly.

  235. Whoaa! Where are my manners! A speedy and gentle recovery for your son and I hope you and your wife are able to bear this in the best of spirits.

  236. Mark Olson

    So sorry to hear what you have been through recently, but I’m heartened to hear about Shaan’s positive prognosis. Best wishes and prayers to you and your family.

  237. Sorry to hear about your son, but glad he is doing better now. It is really a heart breaker when your child or for that matter any child becomes really ill.
    Best Wishes

  238. Hi Gauher,

    I am sorry you had to go through this.
    I am so happy about the outcome.

    My son died on March 25, 2002. It’s a hole my wife and I have will never get out of.

    I was shocked when I got your email and prayed that wasn’t what you were going to say on your blog.

    As you have discovered, the valleys of life really do change your perspective don’t they.

    Take care and enjoy.

  239. Hi Gauher,

    Nice to hear your son is in remission. Yes money is just money (a thing). What you said about it, there’s nothing more to say! Optimal health is everything! I wish for you & your family the very best, especially Shaan. Nice pic.


  240. Matt


    We have never met.

    I want to reach out and wish you and your family well. I am sure your son will continue to have a speedy recovery and hope that the words in the near future transition from “remission to “cured.”

    Keep everyone smiling and laughing…good things will happen.

    May God Bless you and your family.

    Keep the faith.


    Matt in Michigan

  241. May God bless Shaan and your family in these troubling times, keep your hopes up and your spirit and he will make it through.

  242. Miguel

    Hey Gauher, you are not alone, we are with you. Just take care of your son and have faith!!! I just wanted to let you to know that from here we wish you all the best for you and your family and we strongly believe everything will be fine. Miguel and Monica.

  243. Carlos

    i hope your son gets better, i know he will…

    maybe you need to outsoaurce the work so you have more time to spent…

    take care, bye

  244. Jeff West

    Hey Gauher,

    Glad everything is going to be ok with your son. I will pray for you and your family bro.

    He sure do look like a fighter.

    Take care,


  245. Jason


    I hope and pray to God that everything works out for the best for your son and your whole Family .

    I have a 4 year old son also so this hits hard at home with me . There has been many time when my son Has also had the same “growing Pains” we had him to the doctor quite a few times and he said that it’s just growing pains.But now it makes me wonder , think it’s time to get back to the doctor to get it furter looked into.

    It’s hard to see anyone go threw this and even harder when it is a Child . I had a Good Friend that Died from Leukemia in his early 20’s , I don’t wish this on anyone

    Again God bless and hope everything works out.

  246. Gauher,

    I am glad to hear the positive outcome for your son’s health. I wish you & your son a health ful recovery asap. Gauher your are so true if the wealthy could help out, we can definetely STOMP out a lot of problem in today’s society.
    Let me know how your Outsource struture is going. Im not as big as your are just yet but setting up my biz as to where Im required to be involved 2-3 hour a day. Mostly to give instruction and disect the reports..

    Be blessed


  247. Gauher,
    Thanks for sharing this with me and forcing me to put things in the proper perspective.

    I’ll pray for your son and your family.

    God Bless you all,

  248. DaJuan

    Thank God that your son is doing well -I can’t imagine what you went through – take care of yourself – body, soul and spirit.

  249. Wow Gauher!

    It is so awesome that you can actually put Family above Affiliate Marketing. It just shows that there are many more important things in life than money. I pray that your son comes out even stronger, like you say. You’re a great person!

    – Jeff D.

  250. Josh

    Shaan looks like a fighter. Hang in there man!

  251. Vibhor


    Your son will come out of it stronger. My best wishes are with you.

  252. Tammi Villafane

    It’s crazy how sometimes we have to be humbled to put things into perspective. Many prayers for your family & best of luck to Shaan fighting through this. He’s a beautiful boy. Thank you for sharing your story & giving the reminder of the true importance’s in life.

    Take Care!

  253. ken

    I have a son of your age, too.
    Your email really touches me. It is a true nightmare.
    I really pray and hope your son gets full recovery.
    I agree the money is the second thing.
    The time for you to spend with your family gives eternal memory to them, and make the children to grow up-straight.
    Also, what you say about the charity is very true. There are too many parents in the world who have to watch their children die in their hands.

  254. Wow… thanks so much for sharing and best of luck to your son and your entire family. Thanks for sharing what you learned — this community needs to hear it, myself included.

    Take care,


  255. Raj Kumar Hansdah

    I was touched as I went through the pain of an anguished dad. I pray that no parent would ever have to go through such agony; and that your son gets well soon.

    Warm regards.

  256. Jana

    Gauher – just want you to know that my heart goes out to you – I have 3 of my own and while they are much older than your son, a parent should not have to go through that.

    I 100% agree with your “learning” experiences – right behind you on April 13, my husband walked into the ER with a heart attack – only 1 in 5 walk in with as much blockage as he had. Three stints and a triple bypass later, he was ready to come home, got hit with a staph infection and has been fighting for his life in an induced coma on a ventilator for weeks. Only in the last few days is he really improving and I believe he will recover. He is still in ICU and I have no idea when he will be able to come home but at least we can now look forward to that in the months to come.

    As a result, I haven’t “worked” in weeks and amazingly enough, could care less. It is no longer important to me.

    Your son and you and your family will be in my prayers. I wish for all of you the very best.

    Jana Mapps

  257. Gauher,

    Every once in a while, “life” deals you a bad hand. Obviously, you are playing your cards well, and Shaan will one day be an athlete.
    God Bless!

  258. Charles

    Wow, what a curveball.

    I wish all the best luck to your little guy.

  259. Gauher, you have learned a lesson that only going through an experience like yours can teach you. I don’t know if you are a religious person but if you are you need to thank God for your son (among other things). Sometimes wealth can be a curse to the soul, worse than poverty it seems, but it can also be turned into a useful tool in other ways than just making more money.

    Anyway I am sure you and your wife are relieved even though it sounds like there are still months of treatment and uncertainity ahead. I lost my health to the point I was no longer able to work about 11 years ago. People have no idea what all you lose when you no longer have health. Wealth can disappear fast also with some health issues. Health is a wonderful gift from God that teaches you a lot about life and reality.

    This is personal to you Gauher but if this blog is not moderated then all can see it. I have challenged several wealthy marketers at seminars to do one thing and I have yet to have any one of them take me up on it. If you want to really give back and bless someone, I challenge you to pick out a struggling marketer and work with them free of charge until they are successful. Then when they are on their own make them agree to go and do the same thing with another person who is down and out or struggling. Will it be a lot of work? Of course. Will it be easy? Probably not. Will it reward you like money cannot? Absolutely! With this method you are giving of yourself as well as your money! That brings happiness and meaning to one’s life. God bless and I hope that the cancer stays in remission. If you take me up on this challenge and choose someone please let me know, I’d like to follow the progress and know the outcome!

  260. Gauher; First of all let me say i’m very sorry to hear about Shaan,and very very happy he’s going to be alright.Just tell him for me that God is just getting his angel’s attention to let him know that he will always be watching.I do know how you feel,my younger
    sister died on mother’s day and because of my money problems i could not afford the trip home or help with anything.I will NEVER let this happen again even if i have to stay in front of the computer ALL DAY EVERY DAY !
    So keep your head up my man,you beat the odd’s
    and built one hell of an online business so i
    know your family will beat this.

    Always in my prayers:

    ED Mckay

  261. Alan


    That kind of news is heart wrenching.
    I will never forget your kindness to me when my mother passed away the day before your PPCF2 seminar in December 2007.
    You are a very generous man with your time and knowledge.
    I will hold your family up in prayer. I wish you all the best.

    God bless you and your family,


  262. Life has a way of helping us put things into perspective sometimes. I wish the best for your son and am quite sure you will provide hime with all of the care he needs. Good luck to your family and thank you for all of your help.You have helped so many online and its time to be with your family now.

    Regards , Mike Jones

  263. Hi Gauer,

    sorry to hear/read about your son. I wish him a full and speedy recovery from. Kids are very resilient however so I know he’ll bounce back. Good luck to your family.


  264. Eddy Kuah

    My first baby daughter just turned one month old so I can imagine what a horror it was to you. Bless you and your son for overcoming this. May the days ahead be filled with more hope and happy days.

  265. Mike

    Hi Gauher,

    I’m sorry to hear what you, your family and more specifically what Shaan had to endure.

    unfortuntely, I just lost my father to Leukemia (worst form) and can never put into words the pain felt by everyone who knew and loved him.

    Your lessons learned echo exactly how I felt during and afterwards . I’m a business unit director for a pharmaceutical company in Burlington, Ont and have moved into the world of internet marketing as of late. Before my father’s passing it was all about making copious amounts of money (I’m paid well but wanted to be in a position where I could make my own calls)and was forging ahead with the momentum of a run away freight train. Since then, I now look at it as secondary income and whatever it brings in so be it. perhaps I’ll change the mindset in time but for now, I’m quite complacent in memoralizing my father in terms of raising money for charities all in his name of course.

    My thoughts are with Shaan and I’m sure he’ll recover without incident.

    Shaan and my father have taught us an invaluable lesson- life, health, family and happiness is the true measure of success!

    My best regards,


  266. Gauher,

    Awesome pic Dad and son…as a fellow Dad with a young 17 month old who is the joy of our lives, I can’t imagine a more stressful time in either of your lives. I am glad that his condition is better and will keep you all in our prayers. I cannot agree with you more about balancing work and family. With that in mind, as we speak I am moving our family to my wife’s native Brazil- for exactly the reasons you quoted. Life is too short. $2k US a month goes a long way in Brazil. And my wife is a lot happier too! Peace, B

    Dear Mr Chaudhry:
    I am vey moved by the story of your son and your family. Please may you all be stong in the name of God the almighty JEHOVAH. I am vey happy to learn that the survival rate of the type of Cancer your son has is very high.

    My wife and I sincerely pray thay your son will be cured 100%. Yes those of us leaving in Canada are blessed with a good health care system and indeed as you rightly put it:”HEALTH IS THE REAL WEALTH.”

    May JEHOVAH GOD give you and your wife and family the love and needed strength to look after your beautiful young son as I see him and yourself in the picture.

    Mr CHAUDHRY, will it not be wonderful to live in a world in which there is no more sickness, pain and even death? Well the Bible promisses that under God’s Kingdom through his son Jesu Christ such a life is possible for all those who truly excercise faith in Jesus ransom sacrificial death almost two thousand years ago.

    You may check out the following Scrptures about such promises from your own Bible. Revelation Chapter 21, verses 3-5; John Chapter 5 verses 28,and 29. John Chapter 3:16.

    I realise Mr CHAUDHRY that you may not be familiar at at all with the Bible or it’s true teachings, however I have been able to sense immediately where your priority lies, and that is not material wealth but rather your own spirituality and the health and happiness of tour family including your son of courrse and the people around you, your frienda, and employees. Please may you continue to keep with this priorities as you in turn develop a close relationship with the only true God Jehovah.

    If you want to learn more about the Creator of mankind and how compassionate he is and loving and how he can gives wise direction in this life’s journey and how He can help you and your family, I can have Jehovah’s Witnesses contact you to offer you a kind and frre assistance through a frree Bible study or discussion at your home in Missisauga or any place of your convenience. They will also bring you a Bible Study aide entitled:”WHAT DOES THE BIBLE REALLY TEACH?” This PUBLICATION WITH THE AID OF THE BIBLE, will help answer some of life’s pleplexing questions such as why is there much suffering in the world? You may also visit any Kingdom Hall near you in the Missisauga/Brampton/Toronto areas, and the Jehovah’s Witnesses there will provide you and your family further and genuine spiritual assistance.

    I hope this letter will help motivate you to stay positive and to also demonstrate to you theat Jehovah God care about everyone of us and also that there are people on this earth in Canada and around the world who love him and and are faithful followeres and immitators of his snly begotten son Jesus Christ.

    You may reach me directly at cobbyproductsmarketing@yahoo.com My phone numbers are 403 244-5488. My cell # is 403 471-0175. I am real human being living in Calgary, and myself and my wife are Jehovah’s Witnesses. You may contact me by phoine or email as above. Thank you very much.

    Ps** I have been trying to learn Affiliate Marketing for sometime now but my Computer skills are limited so Ihave not been able to get started at all, though I can see the financial potential. Perhaps one day I will be able to afford one of your courses SO i CAN LEARN THIS BUSINESS MODEL FROM YOU AS IT OFFERS GREAT LIFESTYLE FLEXIBILITY.

    At the moment I cannot afford the prices of your courses, but if you do have some affordable ones for NEWBIES like me please kindly let me know I can be your student and learn from you., this way myself and my wife can learn and work together to establish a small on-line business of our own as we devote more time to help people gain accurate knowledge of God’s word which can lead to EVERLASTING LIFE. JOHN CHAPTER 17 VERSE 3.


  268. Gauher,

    You don’t know me personally, but I am on your mailing list and have learned a lot from you in the internet marketing world…

    Anyway, I just want you to know that my thoughts and prayers will be with you and your Son…I don’t know what else to offer, but if you think of anything that I can do to help, let me know…

    Take care, Scott D.

  269. Hi Gauher,

    As one of your students, I think of you as a quality individual and your response to this crisis proves it yet again.

    My wife and I certainly are wishing the very best for you, your wife and the little guy!


  270. I’m sorry to hear about what happened to your son, but thank God he is coming out fine.

    You are absolutely right, health is the real wealth, we should consider it first on our priority, and that’s why I’m taking my exercises seriously (I’m 39 by the way), and the food that I eat.

    Thanks for been there for your son – he looks so cute.

  271. Your son is a lucky fellow to have a dad who obviously loves him so much. Thanks for sharing what you’ve learned from the experience. If only we coiuld all learn these lessons without haviong something like this happen.

    Stay strong – You’re right Shawn will come out of this stronger. But then so will you and your wife…

    Danny & Heidi

  272. You are so right on all points! I am so happy Shaan is doing so well – he is adorable!
    My thoughts and prayers will be with you and your family for a complete remission.

  273. Hi Gauher,
    It must have been a devasting shock for you to find out the news about your son Shaan. I have already offered a pray for you, Shaan and the rest of the family.

    I have two children, and on a few occasions had to spend time with my son in hospital when his asthma attacks got out of hand and became critical and life threatening. Fortunately, his asthma attacks have completely stopped (he is now 29) but 6 days ago his wife gave birth to a boy (my first grandson) and I guess the concerns about health start all over.

    I agree with you, that our priorities should be towards our immediate family and then towards others. Sharing and giving is always something we can all do. I have received many useful gifts from you, and hope that someday I will be able to return the favour.

    I wish you and your family well, especially young Shaan. May his recovery be complete.

    Kind regards,


  274. Gauher
    I’m praying for your son and your family. I wish him a full and speedy recovery. I have a 6 year old daughter and I can’t imagine how you’re feeling right now.
    God Bless
    Bill H

  275. Kirk Rector


    Happy to see your son is home with you, and
    responding to treatment. Your list of lessons
    is inspiring.

    Yes, I missed your posts — they are always
    helpful, but I expect you will be back on a regular posting schedule soon.

    In the mean time, tell us when your Toronto
    Seminar will be (in August), and my wife and
    I will plan our visit. We can hardly wait to
    meet you.

    Kirk Rector

  276. Lena


    God Bless You And Your Child !!!!!

    The following blessing asks God to strengthen and comfort the cancer patient, that he/she might not feel alone and abandoned in this time of difficulty:

    “God of power and mystery, we don’t know why [insert person’s name] has cancer, and others don’t. Please be with him/her throughout the upcoming battle. Bless and keep [insert person’s name] in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Grant him/her strength and courage to trust in Your healing power, and remind him/her that he/she is never alone in You. Amen.”

    I wish you and your family the best,


  277. victor

    I wish Shaan the very best. I believe you have the karma to handle this and he will be ok.

    I have a 7 year old and know your pain. Nothing can get to you like the suffering of a child.

  278. Maureen

    Thanks for sharing your most personal story. I knew you were a bright man before but it certainly shows in all the thoughts and insightful lessons you have learned. I appreciate your sharing those too. I wish you and your family good health and happiness.

  279. Ojuor Chinedu

    I am touched..
    I am also happy that u came out strong from this. God be with your son and I also use him as a point of contact to children all over d world who also need help in one form or the other.. May they also find succor from willing helping hands.

  280. Cerron

    Sorry to hear about that my prayers are with you.

  281. Gauher,
    Thank goodness your little angel is OK! We had a scare with my 7 year old a few months ago, and you are absolutely right- at that point all that matters is your family. Everything else that seems so “pressing” is suddenly insignificant.
    Sometimes it takes a scare to make us wake up and remember what is important in life.
    THanks for the reminder.
    God Bless your family,

  282. Gauher,

    Monica and I both wish your son Shaan and family well.

    Speaking from experience, having illness in the family sure puts a different perspective on life. My business model and outlook has completely changed since my mom got sick.

    With all the medical breakthroughs and our prayers for your son, I believe you are right. He’ll be much stronger for the experience.

    Spend time with your son and family. Pass along some hugs from me and Monica.

    Take care my friend.

    John Stiles

  283. Hey Gauher,

    I’m glad to hear Shaan is going to be ok! When I saw the subject of the email, I couldn’t help but think the worst after being given the “inside” scoop a month ago or so. It was relieving to read your post and to hear everything is going to be ok!

    As one of your big fans, let me say that although we missed you and your content, do what you have to do to get life straightened back out again, take your time, and don’t worry about us.

    I’m sure I speak for the entire ppcf community when I say “we’ll all be here and waiting with open arms when you get back!!”

    I hope things keep getting better and better for you, your family, and Shaan.

    All the best!

  284. Ian Bentley

    Hi Gauher

    I am so sorry to hear about your son. I offer you, for what it’s worth, some advice on a product that might be beneficial to Shaan.

    A friend of mine was recently also diagnosed with Leukemia. She was introduced to a product called UMI (manufactured by the Agel Corporation, a MLM company based in Salt Lake City, Utah) with apparently quite remarkable results. If you have not heard of the product, I’d suggest it might be worth checking out.

    I hope and pray for a complete recovery for Shaan

    Best regards

  285. Not having experienced anything similar, I can’t claim to understand completely what you’ve been going through. But I’m a father and grandfather and know how much I love my kids. You certainly have both my best wishes and my prayers for Shaan’s complete healing.

  286. Josien

    Oh boy, what a story Gauher. I wish you and your family every possible strength.

    When Shaan is better, I am sure you’ll think about a way to put your knowledge of IM to good use and help a lot of charities. After all you’ll drive your wife and Shaan mad, if you would invest the whole 10hrs only in them 😉

    Shaan and your family will be in my thoughts & prayers the coming months.

  287. John Groom

    PTL that your son is on the road to recovering and he will be in our prayers

  288. Mark Mitchell

    I am glad your son is doing well,I have a 7 year old daughter and if that happened to her my life would mean nothing.Unfortunately it takes a tragedy for people myself included to realize what is truly important in life.As far as charity I have never had much money but I have always tried to help people even when I wasn’t in a position to do so,wealthy people should help others more there is no better feeling in the world than to help someone in need.You can’t get that feeling from buying cars,boats and houses.

  289. Laurence

    Hi Gauher,
    Man-o-man what an experience.
    First off you were blessed in advance to have a business that would allow you to drop everything and be at your son’s side for all those days.
    Nothing beats working for yourself.
    Secondly, you seem to have learned very valuable lessons in that time and one of them is that life is short. Don’t beat yourself up over the 10 hour days, that laid the ground work that enabled you to be there for him.
    I too work long days at my job and then long hours trying to build an online business.
    Yes the family time suffers and I want to say in the end that it was worth it, so I keep on trying.
    May God continue to bless you and heal Shaan fully.


  290. Good morning Gauher ,

    You know now that tradgities such as this really put life into perspective . Noting else maters . Nothing . You pray to God to give the desease to yourself and take all the pain and suffering away from your child .

    It is like yesterday in my mind and it makes me cry as i write about it . Thirty years ago on a Easter morning my three month old daughter Holly was flown to St Louis Childrens hospital with a hole in her diaphragm . Her intestines had pushed through and colasped a lung and was puting pressure on her heart . Ya just go numb with grief and feel so hopeless .
    I still remember the name of the Doctor who saved my daughters life so long ago . Dr Bell . We are lucky also to have such a fine hospital so close by . Thank God Holly has been healthy all her life and has children of her own now . I pray for you and your family and to a complete recovery for your son Shaan . He is a fine looking boy and you should be proud .

    Good luck Chaudry and stay strong . You will make through this ……….Brent

  291. Gauher,

    As a parent of a boy with a rare genetic disorder, I know a bit about your world right now. Once asking the why no longer makes sense, it’s really all about getting into the fight-mode. After innumerable trips to Sick Kids, things are mapped out and easier to understand. So it seems with you and Shaan, too. All the best to you guys!!! Fight on dudes!!! John

  292. Gauher,

    All I can say is “Wow!” bro…

    My heart and healing prayers are with your little boy and you and mom.

    It takes a situation like this for us to put things into perspective. Knowing you, you will honor your new priorities 🙂

    God bless you and yours!

  293. Laurence

    Wow Gauher ..i can really relate to your sitiution ,sometimes we tend to think were the only ones going through things..i went through a health scare with my son a few years back and theres no pain like seeing ones son or daughter fighting with a illness you fill powerless at timess..but it only strengthens our faith and resovle and love for our families,im so glad shaan is do great
    you take all the time you need the INTERNET..is going anywhere, God bless.And tell Shaan i said he can beat (ALL) with his hands behind his Back!!..Good Job Shaan!

  294. Rhonda

    So sorry to hear about your son. Very glad for you that you and your family live in Canada, where health care is a given. It’s a much different story here in the US 🙁 I’ll be keeping your family in my thoughts.

  295. Ankit Verma

    God bless Shaan… He’s very cute… I am sure you’ll be a better father now.

  296. Tp

    Waoh…what a story to learn from. I think the most valuable asset in our lives that God has given us is our family.

    When you’re wealthy and your family cannot feel your impact when they desperately need you, then it’s of no use.

    I’m really short of words now, but i would say thank you Gauher for sharing.

    Thanks and God bless.

  297. Gauher:

    I think you hit the nail on the head. We always need a reality experience to put our perspective back in balance. And I do totally agree with Point 3. You shouldn’t have to go in the hole for things such as health.

    I hope Shaan doesnt have to go through much pain. if I can help don’t hesitate to call

    God Bless

  298. Andy

    Hey Gauher,

    That’s some scary stuff man! Your little man does look like a fighter though, thanks for keeping us in touch. My sister’s a nurse and my mom’s a paramedic, I couldn’t agree with you more. We are lucky to have these people watching over us when we get sick.

    I look forward to hearing better news about your son. And your absolutely right, life’s too short, to sit in front of a screen all the time. Figure out what works, get it working, then teach someone else how to do it for you 🙂

    I hope your son recovers quickly!


  299. Jeremy

    Most times, it takes a great “event” (most of the times a great tragedy) to get us human beings to realize what is really important in our life. These things happen for a reason.

    I am glad your son is in remission and I pray he will fully recover.

  300. Hi Gauher,

    I know that was a frightening experience.

    I had the pleasure of meeting you and your wonderful family about 2 and a half years ago in Toronto and I’m very glad to hear your son is better.

    He looks great.

    Warmest regards,


  301. Rui

    I was looking forward to meeting you at the Magic Bullet seminar and wondered why you had not made it. God Bless you and your family as you make it through this tough time. Wishing you and your family the best of health…always.

  302. Doug

    I’m at a loss for words. My prayers go out to your son.It certainly makes you look at life in a whole different perspective. Thank’s for sharing Gauher and if you would keep us posted.

  303. Stewart

    Hi Gauher,

    I just want to add my prayers for Shaan’s healing and for peace and comfort to nurture you and your family during this difficult time.

    Yes, you are so right how a potentially devastating event makes you refocus and decide what is truly valuable in life.

    I pray Shaan stays in remission and a total healing will surge through his body.

  304. Li

    Gauher, I am so sorry to hear about your son’s disease. My son is also 4 yr old and have been complaining about foot/ankle pain. I was thinking it was growing pain. Your story gave me chill, I will make an appointment right now to have him checked. Thank you for sharing your story. Wish all the best to you and your family. Take it easy.

  305. Frederick Bland

    THANKS For everything you do and thank god for his mercy.


  306. Hi Gahuer,
    I can totally relate to your experince Gahuer.
    On 2009 my Little baby girl Matilde was hospitalized for a infected cyst of uraco. The Uraco is a tube from the navel to the bladder. in the first operation they drain 45 cc of materia…and in the second operation, 1,5 months later, they were able to remove the cyst, once the infection was gone. the recuperation of that second operation and his wound take several months more.
    Congrats on doing what you have to do, and my best wishes for your family.
    Shaan’s recovery will be, in due time….So, count with some good vibes from Santiago, Chile to your son and have an awesome time you all.


  307. Hi Gauher,

    I remember seeing Shaan just over six months ago when you visited the bay area. He is a sweet boy with full of life.

    Great Challenges are bestowed on great achievers. Everything will be fine.

    Shaan is a blessed son of a great father.

    Our prayers are with you in these challenging times my friend.

    Seeking Blessings For your family,


  308. Tammy

    Keeping your son and family in my thoughts and prayers.

    May peace rest upon you and your family during this time.

  309. Steve M

    Your tone sounds strong and positive! I’ll join in that energy and wish you and your family all the very best of health.

    God bless!

  310. KC

    “For I will restore health to you and heal you of your wounds,” says the Lord. (Jeremiah 30:17)

    Warm wishes to you and your son.

    Gauher I wish you and your family well at this difficult time. I’m so glad to hear Shaan is on the mend. My thoughts are with you all.

  314. Sanson

    That was a lovely boy you ve got there, i am very happy that he is out of danger, please take good care of him and thank you very much for ypur advice on health care i ‘ll keep to it.

  315. Hi Gauher,

    My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family ….

    … and, thank you for sharing – definitely serves as a good reminder for me to keep focused on what’s really important in my life.

    With gratitude,

  316. Wow! I really don’t wish this on anybody. It’s amazing how one day life can seem unbreakable and the next your world falls apart.

    Wishing you, your son and family the best for the near future. Have faith and God will be there for you.

    My prayers and thoughts are with you.

    All the best

  317. Hey Gauher,

    I am truly happy to hear that your son Shaan has a great chance at beating the cancer.

    As a father of two boys myself, I can empathize with you. People say that a parent feels their child’s pain more than the child feels it themselves sometimes.

    As for the business, it is a work-life balance issue. Many “outsiders” mistakenly believe that internet marketing is about sitting at the beach working 4 hours a week. “Insiders” know better.

    It is easy to get caught up in creating content, building links, optimizing campaigns, running split tests, managing outsourced labor, and the myriad other things internet marketers do. The sad part is that the work never ends…sort of like the old Atari games. You beat one level and the next level gets even harder. There is no last level.

    On the other hand, our time with our children and loved ones is finite. This fact struck me hard recently when I spent a weekend with my son at the university where he will attend in the Fall… Seventeen years went by just like that. Soon he will be leaving the nest.

    So I’m with your Gauher. Family should come first. The work will always be there.


  318. Samson

    That was a lovely boy you ve got there, i am very happy that he is out of danger, please take good care of him and thank you very much for your advice on health care i ‘ll keep to it.

  319. God bless You Gauher and Shaan and your entire family. We are fortunate here in Ontario to have such excellent health care.

  320. Gauher-

    Great to hear that your son is in remission.

    If you are open to suggestions on how to keep him in remission, please read the book “The Ph Miracle,” by Dr. Robert Young. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain.

    Best wishes to you and your family-

  321. Dave Tishendorf

    Things happen for a reason. I really believe that. You have your priorities straight now. And because you are in a position to influence others, they will learn from your example. In the end, we are all stronger. And in the end, Shaan will recover and be stronger than ever. I really believe that too.

  322. Dave H

    Hi Gauher,
    Glad to hear you son is doing well !!
    Your son & Family are in my prayers

    I know for myself, that my son is the dearest thing to me & every morning when I get up
    I pray to Jesus & Thank Him for the precious gift he has blessed my wife & I with.

    God Bless

    Dave H

  323. Greetings Gauher,

    Many thanks for sharing.

    My prayers go out to Shaan, you, and your family.

    May you all enjoy his speedy and complete recovery.

    Your sharing this with us has simply reinforced my own thinking which has crept up these past couple of weeks, as I too have the habit of spending a substantial amount of time in front of this thing.

    I’m gradually getting into outsourcing now, which frees up my time for those who truly matter.

    Warmest Regards, Best Wishes, and God Bless,

    Felix J. Torres

  324. Good luck with everything. Cancer has touched my family way to often 🙁


  325. I’m glad you both seem to be over the hump with this.

    Facing these life and death situations does certainly clarify things and shows what’s really important.

    All the best to you and your family.

    Thanks a lot for sharing us your personal nightmare.

    Thanks a lot for sharing us, what you learned about that so hard moment that you had to live.

    I’ll pray for the total healing of your Shaan kid.

    Please tell him:

    Shaan, you’re overtaking this situation and in few weeks/months, you’ll be, totally healed, and this experience will help you in your life to overtake any challenge. In addition a cyber friend sends you a very special salute.

    Go ahead, appreciated Gauher cyber-friend.

    God bless you and yours.

  327. Ken

    Glad to hear that your son is holding his own!

    God bless you and your family Gauher. You will be in my prayers….

  328. Emile

    Hi Gauher, it’s nice to here from you again. I’m glad to here that your son Shaan is recovery from such an ordeal. I definitely feel you on wealth is health, everything else in life such as money and other material things hold no value compared to it.

    We missed you at the Magic Bullet, you and Frank Kern were the only guys I was truly looking forward to meeting.

    All the best and never forget what is most important.

    God Bless

  329. Gauher,
    As a parent of two young children, I can only imagine what you and your family have gone through, its never fun when your kids get sick. I wish your son a speedy recovery and that you and keep your spirits up.

  330. Brad

    Hey Gauher,

    You have a cute kid. I wish you and your family the very best and I hope everything goes well for you.

    I’ll pray for you, your son and family. Your absolutely right, when situations like this happen, it completely changes your priorities. It really puts life into perspective.

    I wish you the best and I hope your son has a safe, easy and painless recovery.

    All the best,

  331. My mother is just getting over stage 4 terminal cancer and has been using the Gerson methods of therapy. I know it’s scary to not use conventional methods of treatment, but maybe you can at least supplement conventional treatment with this? It honestly saved her life, and she was BAD. Would be happy to tell you more about it if you are interested, since your story is near and dear to me.

  332. Hi Gauher,

    I’m glad your son is in remission
    and I wish you and your family
    all the best.


    Frederico Vila Verde

    P.S. Great line this one you’ve said:
    “Health is the real wealth.” I really
    agree on that one!

  333. shashi

    He is real fighter..I hope no one goes through that nightmare..

  334. Hey Gauher, glad to hear your little guy is improving!

    Now that Shaan is getting stronger, I’d like to encourage you to remove the toxins from your home and food.

    I’m not selling anything, just know that there is something wrong when children like your Shaan, and my good friend’s 19 mos old, are diagnosed with cancer. In my friend’s sons case, it was stage V Wilms tumors.

    Not sure if you have access to Veria TV in Canada, but they have a show called The Incurables that you would find helpful. Also, check-out Susan Somer’s book “KnockOut”.

    I’ll be praying for Shaan continued health, and for wisdom for you & your wife as you care for your son.

    Mari Ann

    My prayers are with you and your family. And thanks for your sharing

    Hi Gauher ,wife and lovely son.

    Shaan will indeed be fine,… my brother had (ALL) and 20 years later is still bringing his lovely music to the world.
    One can only guess what you will accomplish as a family…..one thing for sure …it will be great.
    Thank you for all the great free training you have provided your ‘fans’ over time.
    wishing you all a happy recovery
    regards Meegan

  337. Remi Broviak

    I’m sorry your son has this disease, but glad to hear he is in remission. My prayers go out to shaan for a speedy recovery.

  338. Duane Meador

    Hi Gauher,

    We had a granddaughter, Alissa, who had Leukemia. She battled it for a year and had it in remission. Then about 6 months later it came back, much stronger and harder. We lost her about 6 months later. So please keep getting Shaan in for check-up. It has been known to come back, and if not cautht very early it can be deadly. My prayers are with you all.

  339. Juan

    Dear Gaugher,
    Thank you for sharing your life. I Am glad that Shaan is doing well.
    Shaan is a fighter and you must be his partner, his Father and his best friend Gaugher all days, talk to him about anything and mainly keep you faith. I am sure you son will be in sould health. Be strong blessings to you and your family.

    from Mexico,
    Chemical Engineer

  340. All your family members,

    Our prayers and good wishes for the good health of your son. Its nice to know that Shann is doing well. We live in the same area as you – and it will be a pleasure to help in any way.

    Take care.

  341. Tora


    My deepest prayers for Shaan.

    May Almighty keeps Shann blessed with his all kindness, and bless Shaan with a great healthy, happy and long wonderful life!!!

    The news is really emotional and touching, but I am extremely happy to hear that Shaan is back home with good health.

    Wish Shaan all the best, and my prayers will be with him always.

    Best regards.

  342. Hi Gauher,

    Sometimes we don’t understand when these things happen to each of us, but we know
    that things have a way of working out, at
    some point. We all have you and your son in our prayers.

    To His Speedy Recovery,
    Rich C.

  343. Hello Gauher:

    I know your son will get well
    Dr. Leonard Coldwell has the highest Cancer Cure Rate in the world No B.S. Check it out. I recommend buying a water ionizer with the highest alkaline setting.
    Check it out

    Your Son Will be in my prayers:

  344. Gauher, I feel for your son and for you. I appreciate your sharing this personal challenge here. We work many hours, as you said, in front of computers and we share mundane things with thousands of people at the other end of a “wire”. At the center of ourselves we are connected in ways even more mysterious than the internet. I wish you and all your family health, happiness and prosperity.

  345. Ibinabo

    Really sorry to hear about your son’s situation, but glad to know he’s doing well and hopefully will overcome it soon. Thank you for sharing your story with all of us.

  346. Waseem

    Shaan is a fighter and will get out of this!!!

    This shows all of us how delicate life is, and how important is it to count all our blessings!

    – Shaan, your my little man!!

  347. Hello Gauher,

    I can only empathize with you and your health situation with Shaan. Every family has personal tragedies. It is how we deal with them and learn from them that help mould us as people. I have four grandchildren and the are the center of my world and I pray for the safety and recovery of Shaan. God be with you!



    Hey Gauhar,

    So Sorry to hear about your son. May God bless him a good health and long life, full of joy and lots of happiness.

    I’ve got 6 years old son. I do understand your state of mind. May God bless you all hapiness in life.

  349. Valerio

    I hope for a total recovery, all the best wishes for your son, and for you, I wish you serenity and wisdom to move forward in every obstacle.


  350. Charlie O.

    Sorry to here about your nightmare!
    I know how this type of thing can rock your world, my son was diagnosed with a deformed heart valve when he was 3 weeks old and have open heart surgery at 2 years and at the same time a good friend of our’s, son was diagnosed with A.L.L. like your son. both have recovered well and are now in thier 20’s. We are in the US and fortunatly we both had good insurance at the time, but the point is life is short. work hard but enjoy your family and friends.

  351. Leslie

    Hi Gauhar

    Any illness is challenging however when it is one of your children my thoughts go out to you, your wife & son. Glad to hear that he is responding well to the treatment thus far.

    Permit me to introduce to you a Doctor who is an Integrated Oncologist, what that means is that he is a fully qualified & experienced medical doctor who has studied & practiced extensively in the US, & also spent several years studying Homeopathic medicine in India. Dr. Thomas Lodi & Deepak Chopra both have a distinguished medical backgrounds & take a holistic view regarding health & vitality.

    Dr Thomas Lodi has been able to achieve significant results by combining nutrition, Homeopathic medicine & the limited use of conventional medicine where necessary. In some cases he has been successful in reducing the affects of Cancer with only 10% of the Chemotherapy normally used. This could be of particular interest because of the side effects of Chemo & the age of your son.

    So below are the details of Dr Thomas Lodi & a number of You Tube videos, which include a testimonial from one of the patients treated at the Oasis of Healing.

    Dr Thomas Lodi is an Homeopathic Physician, Metabolic Medicine,Internal Medicine, Integrative Oncologist & Certified Nutrition Specialist. There phone number is listed on their website & if this information is of interest do give them a call.


    The first video outlines a holistic view of health.

    What Is Health-By Dr Thomas Lodi

    An Oasis Of Healing – Kim Davenport Testimonial

    My hope is that by sharing this information it will empower you & your family with health choices that you may not have been aware of.

    To your sons continued recovery

    Warm regards & best wishes


  352. Kerry


    May God’s blessings, love & strength be with you all.
    And thanks for the reminder about what really counts in life! Isn’t it amazing how it sometimes requires a massive event to budge us, all of us.
    Oh, and remember Lance Armstrong… 😉

    You and your family are in my prayers..

  354. Ken D.

    Hi Gauher,
    As a father myself I can definitely admire your devotion to your family, there is nothing more important.
    I wish you and your family all the best, god speed.
    Ken D.

  355. Gauher,

    TONIGHT I’m going to kneel down with my little family and include your son in our prayers.

    I mean that. And we’ll continue to include him in our prayers.

    I have a 7 year old and a 12 year old and so I can’t imagine what you felt and are feeling now, but I have a glimpse of it.

    Give you son a hug for me. Okay.


    David Frey

  356. Gauher,

    Your story is really a shock to the system. It just makes you realise that everyday on this planet for all of us is a blessing from God. I wish your son a speedy recovery and May the Lord almighty give you and your family strength in these difficult times. Best Wishes Ade

  357. Hi Guaher,

    So sorry to hear about the nightmare you have been going through but it’s good to hear that Shaan is in remission. What a great smile he has. My best wishes and prayers for you and your son. I would like to suggest something that I believe would significantly aid you and your son in the journey back to health. Possibly you might have heard of the idea of the mind being employed to augment standard medical treatment to aid in the process of healing. If you haven’t ever heard of it, then I can validate it by simply drawing your attention to the placebo effect which I’m sure you have heard of. The placebo effect has been used for decades now to test the effectiveness of new drugs. The test as you might know, involves giving a placebo of a sugar pill to one group and the actual drug to another, yet the placebo group still exhibits some positive change. This is because they have had their belief and expectation set up to experience a positive change. The effectiveness of the drug is gauged by whether the drug recipients had a more positive outcome than the placebo group.

    I took a course called Silva Mind Control back in 1974 that teaches in part how to harness the placebo effect to promote healing in standard medical treatments as well as manifesting outright healing without medical intervention. Through the years since, I have used what I learned to successfully deal with minor problems like headache control and nothing more since my health has been generally good. However, I have recently experienced the onset of what is obviously rheumatoid arthritis and past visits to my doctor have indicated that I am predisposed to this because of other symptoms I have. The first occurrence happened about year ago with pain and swelling in my right elbow that persisted for weeks and when I realized what it might be, I simply employed the mindset I had learned from the Silva teachings and said, “I will not live with this”. My mind was then set so that I would experience the disappearance of the pain and swelling AND IT DID. Just recently I have again experienced pain and swelling in the 1st knuckle of the 1st finger of my right hand and I again set my mind to the idea that “I will not live with this” and again employed what I learned from Silva Mind Control. The pain and swelling have been gradually reducing.

    As this dissertation is getting a bit lengthy and might be exceeding the field provided, I will simply suggest at his point that you visit this website to have a look at what teachings the Silva people are currently offering about employing the mind to heal the body. http://www.silvamindbodyhealing.com/ . On this page there is reference to the placebo effect and you can sign up for free introductory lessons on the SQUEEZE PAGE which will of course lead to a sales page with more detail about what is being offered. Because the mind of a child is so trusting, open and malleable, children have a great affinity for the ideas that Silva teaches and I’m sure you will find a way to use this knowledge to ensure that your son returns to health.

    Silva does have other mind development products that you might find interesting. Just do a search for The Silva Method.

    Best wishes from a fellow Canadian,

  358. Joe

    Hi Gauher,

    So sorry to hear of the situation your family is facing. Best wishes to Shaan!

    My (much) younger brother was diagnosed with the same illness at age 3 about 10 years ago. Treatment was tough on my bro (and the family), but he faced it with great courage and I learned a lot from a toddler. Long story, short – today my brother is not just a “normal kid” but an amazing kid. He has a special kindness and authenticity that you don’t see in adolescents. He plays baseball, does great in school, and generally shows no effects from the years of treatment aside from a small scar on his neck from the Port.

    If you have any questions or anything please don’t hesitate to hit me up.

    Take care,

  359. Great advice on keeping life in perspective.
    I hope you never have to go through this again.

    God Bless….

  360. Gauher,

    My prayers go out for your son’s recovery and to your family.

    Stay strong.

    Jerrel Pickens

  361. Hi Gauher,

    Wish your son a speed recover. And you are absolutely right, health and family always come first. All the best to your family.


  362. Ron


    When my baby girl had to have some skull re-structuring surgery it was extremely scary. While not as scary as Leukemia, you are right, nothing else matters in that moment. God speed!

    We wish your son a speedy and complete recovery.

  363. Tej

    Hi Gauher,

    Ditto on ALL the posts so far!

    Wishing your son a very speedy recovery and best wishes for all your family.

    Tej G.

  364. Gauher,

    Great news to hear that Shaan is in remission; thanks be to God! You & your family are in our Prayers mate 😉

    God Bless,

  365. CK

    It’s unfortunate it takes a life changing (and life altering experience) like you had with Shaan to realize some of the things you had in the list above. I’m not saying you were a bad person before but what I am trying to say is that I hope others who read this can realize some of your points themselves without having to go through the hardships you did to find them.

    I’m sure your son will recover well and he’s a tough little man having to go through kemo at such a young age. Hopefully his pain will cause gain in others lives by them taking a moment to reflect on what they would do if they were to ake up in your situation tomorrow.

    I’ll pray for you guys and a quick and painless recovery!

  366. Rui Martinho

    My best wishes, for your son, and all your family.

    Wise words, about health beeing the real wealth.

    My best wishes to your family. Money is something we can always make, people we can’t replace. Hope your son’s speedy recovery soon

  368. I would love to visit with you. My company helps with Foundations, charities, causes, etc. We find corporations willing to donate to deserving charities. Maybe I can help.

  369. Dushan

    Hey Shaan & Gauher,
    Doc V here lemme tell you a story about Dan. Well about 20 years ago when Dan was born he was fighting for his life and I was just a medical student.

    I’m gonna tell you the whole story guys when we meet.

    Dan will be 20 on Sept 11 of all days. Tomorrow he’s leaving for NYC. He’s on the Deans List in Toronto and he’s going to NYC after being invited to do summer research at a prestigious University there.

    Much more has happened…

    But I remember Dan and his sister and I buying a book to donate to their school library when they were 5 and 7.

    Guess what the title was “The Dream Is Alive” by Mark Garneau, Canada’s first astronaut in Space.

    Hey Guys Your Dream Is Alive Too !!!

    Keep smiling.


  370. Ray

    God Bless your child and your family, in my area I am everyones Grandad and I would take that over wealth everytime, nothing is more sacred

  371. Martha

    Glad to read Shaan is in remission. Lovely to know you spent all the time with him like any good father would be. This xperience will make you and your family stronger. Keep the faith.

    Best wishes

  372. Leslie

    Hi Gauhar,

    By way of cliff notes having submitted a post to your blog I noticed recommendations that are appropriate. So as you try to sort through the list of options suggested may I bring your attention to three key points.

    1. Max Gerson created a process for alternative treatment of Cancer in the 1920’s his daughter is the person who now overseas the running of the Gerson Institute, the links in the post entitled Gerson will have abundant information within them that you may not be able to focus on because there is so much information there.

    So by way of abbreviation Gerson & Dr Lodi are working towards the elimination of Cancer from the body by using natural live green foods as a part of the process, & in Lodi’s case conventional medicine along side ingesting nutrient dense foods. Dr. Lodi’s clinic is in the Las Vagus & Gerson Institute is in Mexico.

    2.The comments made about vitamin D to the best of my knowledge are entirely accurate & well supported by empirical evidence for further information search at;


    Joe Mercola MD is a source of high value health information.

    3. Mike Adams journalist is the source of my understanding of both Gerson & Dr. Lodi & has other complimentary information at his webiste;


    Warm regards


  373. Brian Davis

    I’m glad there was something medicine could do for your son. Since the beginning of 2010 I have had some things that have happen that has caused me to grieve. My cousin whom is about my age and had been a friend to me all my life from childhood on died on Pancreatic cancer of the liver. I saw her go through a lot of suffering before she died and it was truly heartbreaking. Then about a month later, a woman who use to be a neighbor of mine, when I was having some severe difficulties at the time and my head back then was definitely not right. I just have to say that if it wasn’t for the mercy that family had shown me at that time, my life would be far worse today. So with great sadness, she also passed away with almost the same cancer that my cousin had, and just about a month after. My cousin told me when she was very sick,”Brian if you could just see things the way I see them now, you would realize that all the things that you think are so important really aren’t that important when face with something like I have.” 🙁

  374. Anthony Greentree

    I wish you consistant health and happiness with your son and family for a LONG future together. It is great to hear he is recovering and has a father who has made it priority number 1. All the very best for your NEW future and life ahead with your family. Take care and I hope things will continue to improve for your son. Kind Regards,
    Anthony Greentree

  375. Gaucher,

    Just wanted to let you know Im thinking of you and your family.

    Man… its wiered how we can make loads of cash online but its means ZERO if you dont have your family.

    Wishing you and Shaan the quickest recovery,

    Take care and give me a shout if I can help in any way possible,


  376. khairi


    My prayers to you and your family


  377. Steve

    Hi Gauher,

    My oldest son is 9 now and he was born with kidney problems that meant he had to endure lots of unpleasant tests right up until he was 8 months old when they decided to operate. Taking him down to the theatre for surgery that day was the worst day of my life. Thankfully he came out of that and everything was perfect and he leads a normal life now.

    Yet that’s nothing compared with the shock and aftermath of your discovery. I think I can imagine how you must have felt and I admire the decision you made to drop everything and be with your son all the way through this first crucial phase. Sure there’s been some fall out in your business but you can fix all of that, and you’ll fix it in a good way with some different priorities.

    Best wishes to you and your family and I’m sure you’ll do a fantastic job of supporting your son through everything going forward. There may be some bad days but you’ve still got to enjoy every one of them and be grateful for the blue sky, fresh air and people you love being around you.

    Take care,


  378. Gauher,

    Having a 3 year old myself, this news literally sent chills down my spine… Your family is in our thoughts and prayers.

  379. John Ayling

    My thoughts and feelings are with you and your son.

  380. Dan

    Gauher, Shaan, and Family,

    Life can throw us for some unexpected loops, but it sounds like you all are fighters and will get through this. I know it’s tough for Shaan and all of you, but you’ll get through it. Keep smilin’ through the pain and eventually the pain will go away.

    All the best for Shaan, you and the family!


  381. Di


    Great that you stayed with your son during the treatment, and thanks for sharing and reminding us of the important things in our lives.

    Blessings to you and your son.


  382. Best wishes Gauher and thanks for sharing this with us. I wish Shaan a speedy recovery.

  383. Rod

    God bless you all.

  384. Wes

    Best to you and your son. It is good to hear that you both came home. Family first…always!

    cheers man

  386. You have a great attitude. It makes my situation look small. There will always be troubles, it is what be do with them that counts. Best wishes to your family.

  387. Michael Weinstein

    Shaan, get well sooooooon.

  389. JT G


    Hope Everything goes Fine. Best wishes for your son and you.

  390. Hi Gauher,

    Very sorry to hear about Shaan,
    I am glad that you guys are over the worst part and he looks like a fighter.

    I can only imagine the pain that you have gone through. I did think you were absent for quite a while.

    In these circumstances, everything else becomes almost unimportant and valueless.

    My best wishes for you guys and prayers be with your son and both of your guys.

    Take care and God Bless


  391. Deepak

    Hi Gauher
    You, your wife and Shaan will be in our prayers. We all are with you, man! He will be all right soon.

  392. deji

    I’m sure by God’s grace, your son will be fine. He’s soooo cute!!!!
    Yes, there are things bigger than our puny concerns.

  393. Glad you caught it early! You will be in my prayers.

  394. Dear Gauher,
    I send you and your beautiful family my prayers for blissful health, wondrous happiness, deep peace, and great good fortune now and always.
    This of course was a wake up call, and it sounds like you woke up. This is a gift from spirit, even though it may not be totally clear as to why. Just keep thanking God for His profound blessings. Hang in there. You will see the silver lining soon.

  395. Manns

    Speedy recovery to you – bless.

  396. darren

    Best wishes to your son Gauher I truly hope he stays well.

  397. Hi Gauher,

    My daughter was a micro-preemie, born at 1 1/2 lbs. So I know a little about what you’re going thru. She is now 18 and doing well.

    You’re right. Money isn’t the most important thing in the world, and at some point you gotta ask yourself, how much is enough, and how much am I willing to pay?

    Your story has touched many people.

    May you all be blesed with a full recovery for your son, and a more fulfilling business.

    Hi Gauher
    My heart goes out to you and your family. It is at times like these when we truly realize the importance of love and how precious life is. I pray for your son’s speedy recovery and blessings to you and your family.

  399. It makes my current financial difficulties pale in comparison. I guess you have to put things in perspective and above all be grateful for what we do have.

    What you learned from this is absolute gold. It’s so appropriate that you have the benefit of these lessons given how much you have contributed to so many others. No doubt your life, and that of your family, will be so much greater from it.
    Thank you for sharing your life and your lessons. I greatly appreciate you, you are an absolute standout and inspriation.
    Your son has the best dad I think; hope he has a speedy recovery and the best life.

  401. Hi Gauher,
    Wondered where you’d slipped off to.
    We were sorry to hear of your family’s health issues and your little boy’s diagnosis. Having lost my only son at 8 years old to pneumonia, I know how devastating and scary it can be. My family and I send our prayers your way, and are thinking positive thoughts for your little boy’s recovery. Hang in there. You are a good man, giving and considerate. The higher powers will watch over you. You are right. Time to stop and smell the roses. God bless.

    Thanks for sharing that. The internet is infamous for absorbing allllll of our attention.

    That’s a brutal wake-up call. But as you expressed, even given the bad news, you are quite fortunate.

    Wishing all the best to you and your family.

    Thanks again,


  404. A very touching addition to your blog about how you have to overcome everything with your sons illness and put life in God’s hands. Many more special prayers for continued health, as I too have to regroup my personal business priorities. You are so correct when saying that health is wealth. Continue to stay positive my friend.


  405. Shaan,

    My dad has Multiple Myeloma which is another type of blood cancer. He is in remission.

    I know how scary being sick can be. I also know that the doctors have some amazing treatments now.

    I hope you get better quickly and get back to being a happy young man.

    It’s often hard to understand why ‘bad’ things happen to good people. Like you and Shaan.

    Know that thousands of people are now sending Shaan prayers and healing thoughts for a full and complete recovery.

    It’s amazing how it sometimes takes an event like this to help us all put our priorities in proper order. Thanks for sharing.


  408. Hi Gauher,

    Your blog sent me goosebumps… I am a dad of two young kids. Your blog definitely made me think about the time that I need to spend with my wife and kids.

    I truly wish you and your family the best and I see that your son is a fighter and a happy kid 😉

    Thank you for the reminder.

    Cheers and many blessings to you and your family.

  412. Hi Gauher,

    Knowing your persistence in working on everything till you succeed, I’m sure you’re apply that same level of determination to help get both Shaan and your family through this situation.

    Take care and it’s good to hear that there’s good that might come out of your challeging circumstances.

  413. Hi Gauher,
    I’m sorry to hear what had happened to you and your kid. I am a father of two too, so I can imagine what it will be like if I were at your situation. Anyway, wish Shaan can have a speedy recovery. I agree that health is real wealth.


  414. Don Bethune

    My prayers are with you and your entire family Gauher. May God grant a quick, full, and permanent recovery for Shaan. Can’t begin to imagine what you’ve all been going through.


  415. Rebekah

    So glad to hear that Shaan is in remission. Lovely photo of proud Dad with beautiful boy!

    Best wishes for you and your entire family as you continue to face this ordeal, Gauher.

  416. Chris Stephen

    Hi Gauher,

    My wife lost her battle with breast cancer 13 years ago leaving me with 3 children between the ages of 18 months and 6 years to look after. Losing anyone within your immediate family is traumatic. Remember that no matter what happens, the sun will still rise and the birds will keep singing. Don’t stop smelling the roses. Our Health is our wealth. Our children are our assets…not money. Look after your son..but don’t forget your wife. She’s the polisher who’s making your son shine like a diamond.

    Hey G, I’m elated to hear that the prognosis is as positive as it is, considering the circumstances. It does make you stop and re-assess life and business. Your insights do resonate greatly with me…

    A prayer for Shaan for complete and total recovery.

    Stay in high spirits, as hard as it may seem at times. Remain positive…


    Dale Pillars

  418. Dear Gaugher,

    My heart goes out to you and your family and my prayers are with you and your family for the speedy recovery of your beautiful son Shaan.

    What you have said above is so very true, at the end of the day all the money in the world cannot buy happiness and health.

    Life is a cycle with highs and lows and ultimately it is our faith in the superior being and will and strength to overcome adversity that will ultimately yield a positive outcome. We will continue to pray for Shaan’s good health and speedy recovery.

    God Bless!!!!!!!!

  419. Venkata

    This is really shocking. I pray lord Balaji and hope things go well. I wish him a speedy recovery. Be courageous and face this tough times. By god’s grace, things will go in favor of you and your family. May god bless you and your family.

  420. Judy

    It is truly remarkable how quickly we are brought to our knees when it concerns our kids, and it is out of our control. My prayers go out to you and your family Gauher. Hang in there and fight the invisable beast!

    Give my regards to your family!

  421. Evgeny Ivanovich Podzharov

    Hi Gauher,

    Best wishes to you and your son and complete prompt recovery.


  422. Greg


    My wife’s younger brother had leukemia pretty much his whole life. He was quite a guy. She tells me he never complained – was very positive.

    My prayers and best wished go to Shaan and your family. He’s lucky to have a dad like you.

    Take care of what you need to do and we’ll look forward to learning from you when you get back. You’re right about health being the real wealth.

    Hi Gauher:

    Thanks for shearing your very personal story…

    I hope Shann will get well soon.

    My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family!

    Best regards

  427. I am praying for your boy and your family.

    God will provide!

  428. Bayar

    I know your world was turned upside down when your boy was diagnosed with leukaemia.But I hope you and your family can overcome this situation. God bless you!

  429. Lee

    Hi Gauher
    I am glad Shaan is recovering. I know what the word ‘cancer’ can do to your life, and how it rearranges your priorities usually for the better. I too have gone to a natural eating program and my cancer has not returned in 15 years. Eliminate high fructose corn syrup in food and drinks, genetically modified food (soy, corn, canola and cotton), trans-fats in burgers, fries and margarines, toxic cleaning and personal hygiene products. Cancer can’t survive without sugar. Whole foods, organic fruit and vegetables, grass fed beef, wild salmon, raw seeds and nuts were what out ancestors ate to survive. Juice raw veggies and don’t eat anything white, except plain yogurt.
    May you all have many happy healthy years together.

  430. Adam H

    Salam Bro Gauher,

    Sorry to hear the stress you have been under, been thinking you have been quiet.
    Thank God Shaan was diagnosed early and is now undergoing treatment and with all the blessings and prayers from us and around the world he will no doubt be on a rapid recovery.
    I am very sure Shaan is a fighter like his father.

    Many thanks for sharing your story and the lessons you have learnt, It makes us all realise how lucky and blessed we are for having our health but as humans we take things for granted. It is human nature to forget and most of the time we need reminders.
    There is a saying “If you look above you, you will never be happy and if you look down below you, you will reallise how lucky and blessed you really are.”

    May Allah Bless you and your family.


  431. Glad to hear things are looking up for family! I’m sure the next we’ll meet again, this craziness will be a memory with more awesome times to look forward too! 🙂

  432. Wow. Scary. I would be devastated if that happened to either of my sons.

    Yet, from apparently bad things, good things can arise. It is good that your son has begun to recover and the lessons you have learned will add quality of life to you, your family and all around you.

    I am also hearing what you are learning and thank you for sharing your wisdom.

    I pray that God looks after you and your family.


  433. Isaac Abufhele


    My prays go out to your son and his speedy recovery.

  434. Gary

    Hi Gauher,

    I know exactly what you are going through, it happened to my son as well. I’m so sorry you and your family have to endure the fear and pain that is created by this. NOTHING! makes you feel more helpless as a father. But take heart brother, you will be a better father, husband, person, and a stronger, closer family as this passes.

    If you ever need to talk to someone who has been there, don’t hesitate to contact me, you have my email. My thoughts and prayer are with you and your family.


    PS.. cute little guy in the pic:) just needs lots of Love and Hugs

  435. Gauher, your ordeal hit ME like a freight train.

    I have a little boy who’s 5 years old. As a father myself, I fully CAN sympathise with what you went through.

    We all want the best for our little ones, and any suffering they go through hurts us 10 times more. We blame ourselves, as if it were somehow our fault. But it isn’t always so.

    You were fortunate that it was a relatively mild form of Leukemia, and that it was caught early.

    I felt your pain, and I have been through a similar episode, where I, too, learned that money without health means nothing.

    It really put my perspective on life in a whole different dimension.

    Best wishes for your little one, and my respect for being there all along, with the right priorities. – JH

  436. Scott Vincent


    Hope that all goes well with your son. Our first child has special needs and it was difficult. Your ‘Inner Strengths’ will come out and you will make the right decisions.

    Our family will pray for you and we all hope for the best.

    Even before your revelation today, you prepared all of us (your Affiliate Marketing Children) to use our success for the good of others. This is and always will be my families goal with the success you have help create.


  437. Fiona

    Wow. Thank you for sharing. Best wishes to you and your family.

    Thanks also for creating PPV, PPC, etc to enable us to become wealthy and thus be able to give generously. Well done for prioritising your son and family over business.

    Take care and please give a high 5 to Shaan from me for being such a super-kid!

  438. Chirag Brahmbhatt

    Don’t worry you have transformed lifes of poor to rich, like me….. You always do good for all and helped so many people….. God will definitely look at you…….. Wishing a good, healthy and full recovery of your son.

    Chirag K Brahmbhatt.

  439. Dear Gauher
    Our family’s prayers and best wishes will be with your son, your family, and you through this challenge. We all look forward to the day when this is behind all of you and we continue to celebrate life. May the peace that excells all thought be with all of you.

  440. David S

    Thank God for the good prognosis. May He continue to bless you, your son and family.

  441. God is able and God is willing to heal. I pray that you will be strong and faith to help your son overcome, and get well soon

  442. jacques

    what can I say? take it one day at a time, and enjoy each moment you spend with Shaan. However: it´s his life, it´s his fight – with all the hospitals and doctors and treatments it´s easy to lose focus of what/who really matters; please tell him a friend from brazil is rooting for him.
    and ask him if he would like a brazilian soccer team shirt.

  443. Eric Louviere

    My prayers are with Shaan, and your family Gauher. You are a wonderful person, and I am sad to hear this news.

    I know everything will be ok, and Shaan will make a speedy full recovery. Blessings to you and your family my friend.

  444. John L


    I am praying for continued recovery for Shaan.

    You certainly have your priorities in order!

    God bless!

  445. Hey Gauher,

    As a father of 3 (one of them close the same age as your son), your ordeal really hit me. Like you used to be, i am also glued to my computer for over 10 hours per day. Your post really moved me, and has made me realize my priorities. I’m sure you thought long and hard if you should post this story. THANK YOU for sharing this with us! Your post will change my life, my kids lives, and i’m sure many others. All the best for you, your son, and your family. Stay Strong!

  446. Kaz

    As a mother of a two year old it brought tears to my eyes to hear of your story. I wish your son all the best in his recovery and your family all the strength you need. Mustering up all of the positive wishes and energy that we can send to you from here in Melbourne, Australia.


  447. Cy


    Shaan, you, and your family are in our thoughts and prayers.

    We appreciate all that you have done for your students and those whom you have helped.

    We wish your son a timely recovery and a better rest of the year.


  448. Tim

    Best wishes to you and your family during this ordeal. God’s blessings and a speedy recovery to your young son. He’s a handsome kid, isn’t he? It’s very understandable that you haven’t been available for quite awhile. Take care of your family and never worry about the other material things that really don’t matter. Tim

  449. Gauher,

    All the best to you, your son and your family.

    Thank God that you live in a civilized country, where healthcare is payable.

    You are right about focusing on the wrong things sometimes. We all tend to take things for granted, but existence is very fragile of course.

    Thank you for letting us know. My thoughts are with you.


  450. Avraham

    It’s been a long time at first I thought you had decided to give up on me as a list member.
    This news has come as a total surprise am happy though you have light at the end of the tunnel.
    Quick recovery to your son and family.
    What is money without health? Nothing
    So give the little boy his time Life is now.
