"Cancer may damage us physically but it doesn’t damage our life and spirit."

January of 2017 I had gotten a bone marrow biopsy done where the results showed that I had CML type blood cancer. It might have started out as a sad year but I was also pregnant, so by July, I had successfully given birth to my daughter. With becoming a young mother, I looked to my own mother for how I wanted to raise my daughter. She was the one who always accompanied me during my days in the hospital. I am grateful for her and the Blood cancer team in Indonesia who helped me during this troubled time. My advice to anyone with cancer is to believe in a good tomorrow and that we have a great God. Also, that cancer may damage us physically but it doesn’t damage our life and spirit.
