SITI RABANON MOHD TAWIL may not be able to do much due to advanced breast cancer but the 63-year-old is happy to spend quality time with her husband Hamzah Abdullah at home.

Thanks to Hospice Klang, the mother of 10 is able to manage her pain with supervision and medication provided by the organisation during twice-weekly home visits.

According to Hospice Klang chairman and physician Dr Michael Yoong, patients with advanced cancer received palliative care from his organisation to be comfortable and pain-free throughout their remaining days.

Hospice Klang also lends the patients hospital beds, oxygen apparatus and other equipment.

The organisation is in need of bigger premises for storage of these equipment as well as space to increase the intake of daycare patients.

“With bigger premises more patients with advanced cancer can come to our daycare centre,” Dr Yoong said adding they would also be able to conduct cancer awareness programmes.

Those interested in helping Hospice Klang can call 03-33242125 or 03-33244740.
