Cancer… it’s such a scary word, I had only heard it in movies before
"She was such a normal and healthy little girl. She used to get a fever every now and then but after a couple of days with general over-the-counter syrups, she would be fine.

It’s such a scary word; I had only heard it in movies before.” – Anjum, mother
