Can I humbly express my heartfelt gratitude and thanks to the Minister of Health and his surgical staff for their confidence, encouragement, kindness and care during my mother's mastectomy operation last Thursday. I am deeply grateful that after the operation you took the time to reassure us that everything went well. May the Lord bless you and your staff many times over.
To Christine 'Uta'atu from the Tonga Breast Cancer society and especially Vivian Puloka, thank you very much for making the time to share your experiences with mum before her operation. Your kindness has helped us realize that half the battle is won by keeping a positive outlook on what life has dealt each and every one of us.
