Mother of five shares painful journey

July 3, 2018 7:07 pm

Thirty-one-year-old cancer survivor Asenaca Driso says her whole world seemed to crash down on her when she was diagnosed with cervical cancer in January last year.

The mother of five young children shared her painful journey during Fiji’s Biggest Morning tea, an annual event held to raise funds to fight cancer.

Driso says the only thing that came to her mind when she was diagnosed with Stage 2 B cervical cancer was death.

“I knew nothing about cancer , cervical cancer , I had the symptoms but I chose to ignore it and my ignorance almost cost me my life and the lives of my children. I almost lost them.”

Driso says she was able to travel to India for treatment through the assistance of the Fiji Cancer Society.

“I was bleeding, I was losing a lot of blood, I lost appetite and I was just thinking of my kids back home, I was really home sick. I was in so much pain, one night I cried out to the lord. It’s better for you to take my life rather than having me to go through so much pain, I can’t take it anymore. I had doubts about coming back to Fiji and seeing my kids.”

Meanwhile, the organizers of the event Motibhai Group of Companies, is calling on every organization to take up such initiatives and raise funds for a noble cause.
