Sum Samon is 32 years old and has 3 children. She has had breast lumps for a number of years and her breast is swollen and leaking pus.

Both she and her husband had jobs but because of her breasts and her belly pains, they sold all that they owned.

They now live with an auntie. Her husband is very sad and sometimes he gets very angry because of all they lost through her illnesses. When he got angry he destroyed the auntie’s shack and threw away all the pots and pans and clothing. She is very sick and believes she is dying. She is waiting.
