Ha Quang Duy, 19, from Cam Khe District’s Dieu Luong Commune is taking care of his mother Nguyen Thi Dung, 55, who is suffering cervical cancer.
Since Tet Holiday, Dung’s condition has worsened, but her family is now in debt, so she has to stay at home.

Dung’s disease was detected in October last year when it had serious complications. Since then, she has already undergone surgery and six radiography treatments.
“My mother is living in great pain these days, but I don’t know what to do to help her, instead of giving her pain killers,” Duy said in tears.
According to Duy, his father died of liver cancer when he was just three years old. His two sisters are married, leaving him to be the family breadwinner who will have to repay the debt.
Duy said that before being ill, his mother had to do different kinds of jobs to support the family.
Ha Van Lam, chairman of Dieu Luong Commune People’s Committee, said Dung’s family faces great difficulties. He hoped that donors could assist them.
