About Campaignends 31 Dec 2019, 11:59 PM
I am a Project Director in a clinical research organization and I am a breast cancer survivor. In Aug 2014, I was diagnosed with Stage 2 Triple-Negative Breast Cancer and had treatment for 1 year. My sister was also diagnosed with Stage 3C breast cancer at same time. I currently volunteer and work with many cancer survivors with Lymphedema.
I am joining Relay Majulah to represent Breast Cancer Foundation and to inspire cancer survivors to beat cancer by how you live, why you live and the manner in which you live. Being active help you with this fight. I have been running marathons for 9 years and did a double marathon in Antarctica and Chile in Jan 2019.
Running 20km in 2 hours will be tough but I am determined to do so as this is for a good cause. Support me as I run to create awareness and support for cancer survivors.
