Hi, my name is Nguyen Truong, author and illustrator of the novel The Wishing Glass, and blog: thewishingglass.com.
I started this website after my battle with stage four liver cancer no longer looked hopeful. It has been a bittersweet journey, though I have been blessed with the most amazing group of family and friends who have supported me in every way imaginable. It is thanks to their love that I have been able to stay happy ever since my diagnosis.
In the time that I have remaining, I would like to accomplish some of the things that I was waiting for retirement to tackle. . . like writing a novel.
I hope my work here can bring a little happiness to anyone who cares to read it after I’m gone. I am not a professional writer, but writing brings me peace, and I write for the simple joy of doing so.
For anyone else who has fought, or is fighting, this terrible disease, I pray for your swift recovery. Life is a beautiful thing. Don’t waste a single day on being anything other than Happy.
Please help me in my quest to raise public awareness on how cancer originating from Hepatitis B (the cancer that I have) can be easily prevented. One simple test can save someone their life. Learn more by visiting my Donation Page.
