Wan Petom Haris is no ordinary human being. Wan's story is one of great courage amidst great challenges.

What started off as a chronic backache in March 2016, begun a 5 month whirlwind of visits to multiple doctors, scans, tests, examinations, investigations and consultations. In August 2016, Wan wan initially diagnosed with Stage 2 cancer - however, that was just the beginning. Further scans done on her bones and organs found that cancer cells had spread to her liver, spleen, spine and ribs. The prognosis? Stage 4 cancer and the doctor estimated that Wan would live for another 6 months.

Despite the challenges, Wan fights on for the sake of her son - Cali. "I pamper him now because I don't know how long I can pamper him for".

This year, Run for Hope also celebrates a special milestone - our 25th Year Anniversary. Wan has a fearsome fighting spirit - and is an ambassador for Run for Hope - the run for cancer awareness and research.

Wan's message of hope and fighting spirit to cancer sufferers: "Don't give up! 'HOPE' stands for 'Hold On, Pain Ends'."
