The Mohd. Shafiq Story....continues (March 17, 2011)

After receiving news that Mohd Shafig was in constant pain, a group of us made an impromptu visit to Shafiq's home in Serendah on 17th March to try to cheer him up. Hau Kiang and Merlyn came with us whilst Sarkawi and his boss met us at the Bukit Beruntung toll.

Despite his intense pain (he is on 50mg morphine plus a morphine patch on his right shoulder), he greeted us with a smile and in his usual cheerful style.When Kat enquired about his pain level, he whispered to Kat and later requested Kat not to tell his mother how much pain he is enduring. An NGO has given him a laptop and he told us that he wants to communicate with us by email once a line has been fixed.

Despite all the treatments, his osteogenic sarcoma (bone cancer) is progressing. Compared to his condition when we last saw him on Jan 20th 2011, the tumour on his right shoulder has grown noticeably bigger.He just cannot use his right arm anymore.

We brought him some food and a toy which he immediately tried to fix with his left hand. Before we said goodbye to him, Merlyn gave him an angpow (the RM 200 allowance that we provide for him every month from our charity fund).

Please do pray for him as well when you do your daily prayers
