Cheam To is 52 and gave birth to six children. She says “ my family are farmers and we are very poor ever since 7 years ago when I had a ball in my breast.

It makes my breast hurt too much. I am always hot and cold too much and my joints of the arm and leg bones hurt all the time. I can do nothing anymore because I am very tired and always have fever. My husband is also sick so he does nothing. To see the doctor we made a decision to sell our farm, pigs and cows but no result from medical treatment.

The money is all gone and we have to borrow money for more medicine and food but we cannot pay back the money. My daughter grows up doing wrong – now she had a heart attack and is always falling fainting. Life is too hard.” Cheam To is waiting.
