Blind mother takes care of daughter facing ovarian cancer
  • | dtinews.vn | September 19, 2018 08:38 AM
A blind woman in the southern province of Bac Lieu is calling for help to provide treatment for her daughter who has been diagnosed with ovarian cancer.

Dang Thi Hong Anh, 43, in Bac Lieu City said that she has been blind since when she was seven. Her husband left the family since she was 29 years old. Since then, she has become the breadwinner, taking care of the two daughters. 

   

Anh and her daughter

Anh had to sell lottery tickets to earn money.

In 2011, under the support of Bac Lieu Province’s Blind People’s Association, she was offered an opportunity to learn acupressure. After that, she and three other blind people hired a house to do this for earning money.

Her eldest daughter Tran Thi Hong Van had to leave school to work for supporting the family. Van then got married but just a short time after that she also divorced. She and her six-year-old daughter are also living with Anh.

Her youngest daughter Tran Thi Phuong Trang, 14, studies hard so that she can have a good job in the future.

However, in August this year, she had to take an operation to remove a tumour affecting her ovaries following serious stomach aches.

In a recent medical check-up, she was diagnosed with ovarian cancer. Doctors said that she would need chemotherapy six times every six months. Each time of the treatment would cost more than VND10 million.

Due to the family’s financial difficulties, the mother had to take the daughter back home.

Anh said that she could only earn VND200,000 per day thanks to acupressure, so she failed to afford the treatment.
