We human beings are not born to live on this earth forever; life may at times seem very long, but it is in fact very short and expensive to waste. We believe that we will meet our loved ones again when our time on this earth is finished. We came to realize that forming a cancer society and trying to help our fellow cancer patients in whatever way we can and challenge the growing burden of cancer here in Ethiopia would be one of the best ways to remember Mathy & our loved ones. And to thank God for all the opportunities He gave us to help our loved ones in every way humanly possible, leaving the rest to the will of God!
