I’m raising as much as I can to beat cancer

My interest in running the marathon for the charity rises through my mother’s encounter with cancer back in 2016. I was at school when my mother was diagnosed of one of the most dangerous types of liver cancer and was expected to live for less than six months. It was devastating news. My mother had become a single parent ever since I was still in kindergarten and I was really close to her. As a result, I could no longer focus on my studies and had to suspend my studies. I accompanied my mother in the hospital all day, prayed and hoped some miracle could appear.

Luckily, we managed to transfer her to one of the country’s best hospitals with doctors who had just returned from the US with new treatment methods. My mother eventually survived, but that experience made me realised how much cancer research means for countless families around the world and, especially, for children like me.
