WE would like to thank Gan Tee Jin for the letter “Keeping an open mind on unproven treatments” (The Star, March 10). We appreciate the effort to describe his family’s experience with HITV (Hasumi Immuno-Therapeutic Vaccine) and are glad that his mother has had a successful outcome after her treatment.

His mother is a living testimony that cancer is not always a death sentence, which sadly is an all too common perception among Malaysians.
