KUCHING: A popular non-governmental organisation (NGO) Hope Place recently aided one Law Sie Kiaw, who lost her spouse in September and is battling breast cancer.

It was said that the mother of two was first diagnosed with stage three breast cancer in 2019 and is now still undergoing chemotherapy.

Her husband died last month from liver failure caused by hepatitis, she said.

She is physically weak, has lost her appetite, and is unable to work as a result of her therapies.

The 47-year-old who lives with her sons at 3 ½ mile told Hope Place that her eldest son is the breadwinner now.

They are now having a difficult time, as the income from the 20-year-old son’s online business is barely enough and that her 16-year-old son is still studying in secondary school.

Law, however, said she was grateful that her relatives did help her and her kids from time to time.

She said she was still waiting for the approval of financial assistance from the Social Welfare Department.

Law is receiving supplemental supplies of special milk powder from Hope Place. During her present stage of recovery, her doctors had advised her to take milk supplements. The family is also receiving some basic food assistance from the same NGO.
