My mother got breast cancer 15 years ago. She managed to fight & won the battle against cancer, been living a normal & healthy life since then. The reason I am in to this is because I love my family members and I hope this would not happen to them. But finger crossed, if anyone of them got cancer then they would have the best effective treatment and assistance given in Malaysia. At least, there is hope & support from the society.
