On April 21th, Ms. Liu Yansheng, Director Assistant of International Affairs, gave her holiday wishes and speech to all patients. She said that, the three-year epidemic has had a profound impact on international exchanges, forcing many countries to close their doors and blocking the way for patients to seek for medical treatment. Therefore, some lives have fallen. Today, we gather here and celebrate Eid al-Fitr together, which shows that everyone is blessed by Allah. Fighting cancer is a protracted battle fought in the darkness. No matter what situation we are in, we must bear hope in mind, believe in Allah and fight bravely with cancer. At the same time, our hospital will continue to carry out the mission of "providing the most convenient and considerate high-quality medical services for human beings", and work together with everyone to fight cancer.
Singing songs, dancing with friends, enjoying a warm and lively gathering, which are always the ways we celebrate holidays. Songs are like spiritual food of human beings which provide us with comfort. We were happy to invite two patients from Indonesia, Ms. Henny Chandra and Ms. Fie Ling, sang songs for the audience. Each song expressed the feelings of singer. The song "Tomorrow will be better" sung by everyone expressed patients' optimism for the future, appreciation for technologies and medical services of our hospital and even showed the spirit of human beings when fighting against cancer.
Fighting against cancer is like running a marathon alone in the darkness. In order to encourage the patients, we invited Mr. Hendra Haksap and Ms. Ng Ai Tjiu from Indonesia to share their experience of fighting cancer. Mr. Hendra Haksap is a intestinal cancer fighter from Indonesia. He has underwent 26 sessions of chemotherapy and experienced both mental and physical torture.

She said that she felt the warmth of family here with a great help from medical staff during admission and her condition was greatly relieved. She will face with live positively same as usual.
*Surgery, in addition to the appropriate chemotherapy and radiotherapy, are effective in treating early cancer, but certain patients in late stage of cancer may not be tolerate surgery well as they can be relatively weak. A combination of carefully planned minimally invasive therapy, chemotherapy or radiotherapy can effectively reduce the side effects and discomfort of treatment and may help patient get better efficacy.
