2 cancer survivors met each other

KUALA LUMPUR – Two cancer survivors met 11 years ago at a camp for children suffering from the disease, and their relationship, which started off as giving moral support to each other, blossomed into something more.
Penang-born Mohd Munir Mohd Shukri, 26, and Roslinda Mohd Yatian, 27, from Johor, became soulmates.
Munir was diagnosed with leukaemia (cancer of white blood cells) and his wife, Roslinda, was diagnosed with lymphoma (cancer of the lymphoid tissue) when they were 11. They met when he was 15 and she was 16.

“We wrote letters to each other after the camp, as it helped us go through the pain,” said Munir.
“I found comfort in those words and the support he showed. I felt motivated to move on in life,” Roslinda said, while clasping her husband’s hand.
She said although they faced difficulties in adjusting to normal life after dealing with cancer, they were glad to be alive. Today, the couple’s medical condition is under control and both are living a healthy life in Penang.

Munir works as a technician, earning a decent income to support his family, while Roslinda is a homemaker.
The couple were among 50 cancer survivors who attended the “Celebration of Life” ceremony at Kuala Lumpur Hospital’s Paediatrics Institute yesterday.
They expressed gratitude to doctors and nurses from the institute for giving support and care in times of need. The couple also shared their experience battling the disease with children suffering from cancer, as well as their parents, to inspire them to stay positive.
The event was launched by Deputy Health Minister Datuk Seri Dr Hilmi Yahaya.
