From the Paper:

"Several years ago, I was diagnosed with breast cancer and I must say that it was the most earth-shattering experience I have ever had. This experience made me realize a good number of things. Firstly, I was faced with my mortality; that this precious life I have can be taken away from me. I am a wife and mother of two children. I also have two grandchildren who I love very dearly. At that point in my life, there was no way that I would ever want to be away from them - I knew I had to fight; it was quite a struggle.
"Secondly, it made me realize that I have not yet reached my fullest human potentials. There are a lot of things that I would still want to do. There are a lot of goals that I would still want to pursue.
"Thirdly, this experience strengthened my faith in my Creator and with the people around me who stood by my side. The love and patience I have felt was more than enough of an inspiration for me to survive this hardship.
"I am glad to say that my struggle paid off. With the help of my family, my relatives, and the kind and generous hearts of people who contributed to my treatments, I was given a clean bill of health by my doctors."
