Hak Own is 16 years old. For the past three years, Hak has had a breast lump that has grown in size and causes her much pain.

She has never gone to a doctor because her father is blind and cannot work and her mother is too busy as she needs to earn enough for all her seven children.

Hak is afraid she is dying – she often faints now, her breast is heavy and she can’t sleep from the pain and the fear. Hak is so afraid – she is waiting.
