In March, Safiyya, a lifestyle show on TV9 featured a segment on cancer and interviewed two cancer survivors linked to MAKNA, Puan Azlina Yaakob and Puan Latipah Saat.
Puan Azlina, from Kajang was diagnosed with breast cancer a few years ago. A single mother, her steely determination to want to see her children grow up, has kept her alive all these years. She often shares her experience battling cancer during sharing moments, talks and exhibitions organised by MAKNA.
Puan Latipah from Batu Pahat, is a gem of a person whom you will never suspect as a cancer survivor. A bubbly and down-to-earth character, she was diagnosed with colon cancer stage 3 some years back. As a volunteer with MAKNA, her dedication to help other patients to find the strength to beat cancer a trait she is well-known for, especially in and around Johor.
