My Story

My name is Anson. I am a Chinese living in Hong Kong. I am eleven years old now. In August 2010, my doctor informed me that I had blood cancer. I was shocked when I knew that I had cancer because I always believed I was a healthy child. I was sporty and liked playing chess. I was also good at Mathematics. I have to take chemotherapy in the hospital for over 2 years. In the past half year, I sometimes got very tired and vomited during the treatments. Besides, I had to stop eating many of my favourite food like ice-cream, sushi and barbecued meat. But I always remind myself to keep happy by playing electronic games with other patients in the hospital and talking with each other. Most importantly, I have confidence that I will recover if I follow the doctors’ and mum’s instructions. So, if you have anything unhappy, just think something happy or speak to your friends. Don’t stay at home and cry! Crying will only waste your time, and it is bad to your health too! Cheer up!
