Cancer Patients Highlight How Trivial Our Popular Understanding Of Happiness Is

We take so many things for granted, and we always want so much more. We dream of jobs in New York, owning businesses, and being rich beyond our wildest dreams.

But there are some people whose wishes are simple and true, and remind us of the things that are truly important in life.


An organization in Spain wanted to highlight this and so brought together random strangers with young cancer patients and their families. A wall was placed between the two sides so they could not see each other.

They were then asked two questions: “What would make you happy?” and “if you could have one wish what would it be?”

This heart-warming video captures their responses and sends a beautiful message:

“Appreciate the little things. We only realize how much they’re worth when we lose them.”
