“My mother worked hard and suffered a lot.” In her story, Hoang Thi Thu Huong (freshman student at Hanoi University of Transportation) always mentions her mother – a female “K warrior” who is fighting breast cancer every day.
Mom is sick, I have to study hard myself
In September 2020, Ms Pham Thi Luyen (from Nam Dinh) felt a small lump in her chest. When he touched it, it felt hard. Going to the hospital for a check-up, she got the news like a thunderbolt: breast cancer.
Her husband died early, leaving Mrs. Luyen alone to care for her two daughters. On the day the disease was diagnosed, the house was under construction and not yet plastered, so we had to put it aside to save money for treatment.
“The moment my mother said she had cancer, I was very scared. She told me: My disease is like this now, but tomorrow it may be different, so you have to make an effort yourself and work hard” – Huang Said while remembering.
From that point on, Huang said, her mother fought breast cancer alone, having to travel from Nam Dinh to Tan Trieu’s hospital (Hanoi) for surgery to remove the tumor and to undergo radiotherapy.
Seeing that people have husbands and grown-up children to take care of, and her mother, even though she is sick, still can’t sit still, still running everywhere to take care of her children and herself , Huang loves him. Very. Whenever I come home from school, I go to the kitchen and prepare rice and mix medicine in it for my mother to drink. Huang tries to be near her mother when needed so that she can ease the pain of her illness.
After undergoing radiation treatment, my mother lost her hair. So Huang decided to grow her hair long to give to her mother. Huang said her mother’s condition is now more stable, her hair has also started growing back and she will go to the hospital for checkups every three months.
“The most important thing for cancer patients is the soul. Therefore, I am always with you, sharing and encouraging you so that your mother no longer thinks about the disease but only about the happy moments in the present ” – Huang Bo White.
Visit a school with the following criteria: Affordable tuition
In 12th grade, Huang received a scholarship for children of cancer patients with good academic results and won third prize in the 11th grade provincial literature subject. Mrs. Luyen kept that scholarship money carefully, not daring to spend any of it. Send your daughter to college.
Now Huang has graduated from university, which means the tuition burden has increased. Even though she was ill, Ms. Luyen applied to work as a leather shoemaker to cover the family’s living expenses and pay for her daughter’s education.
She told her daughter that as long as she can work, she should do so to save money for her daughter to go to college, because illness cannot be predicted, who knows what will happen tomorrow…
“In the admissions process, when determining my aspirations, in addition to the criteria of my preferred major, I chose this school because the tuition is cheaper than other schools. If I study here, if I work hard, I will Will get scholarship to school so that my mother can reduce her tuition fees. No burden of tuition fees” – Huang expressed.
As soon as she arrived in Hanoi, Huang immediately asked to be checked into a hostel. The new student said she chose the school’s dormitory partly because it was cheaper than other schools, costing only 160,000 VND per month.
After studying in the capital for less than a month, Huang even got a part-time job at an Ao Dai shop near the dormitory. At first, the boss asked Huang why she didn’t wait until she got used to the streets before going to work, but the new student honestly said that if she didn’t work part-time, she wouldn’t have the money to pay. Care of life in the capital.
Seeing the good-natured student, the shop owner paid Huang 20,000 VND/hour, working shift from 5 pm to 9 pm. Thanks to this, Huong will have more money to cover living expenses for the coming months.
She also said that she would try to study and work at the same time. If that wasn’t enough, she would borrow more student loans. After graduation, she will work to pay off the loans.
“I am determined to go to school, because only by going to school will life be less sad and less difficult in the future. After graduation, having a stable job will allow me to take care of my mother” – Freshman Hoang Thi Thu Huong thought.
