About the Book

“I’m sorry to have to break this to you. Mr Selamat, it is cancer.” Just a week after the initial scan, the doctor at the ENT Centre at Singapore General Hospital, sadly broke the news. I went blank for like 3 minutes. Just how does 1 react to this? What does a wife typically do? What does a mother of 5 generally do? Do I start bawling now? Do I start thinking of the worst? Do I start researching all sorts of remedy? Do I ask the doctor to check his notes again? How should I be feeling? At first, I thought, where did I go wrong in the simplest job of taking care of my Husband? Why didn’t I ask him to get that little lump on his neck checked before it grew? Wives carry with us such responsibility that it is just unthinkable how things could go wrong. On that day, he began his life as our cancer Warrior. And I became a caregiver.
