In mid 2018, Constance collapsed at university where she was studying for a Bachelor degree. She was rushed to the Prince of Wales Hospital emergency room and extensive tests revealed a large cancerous lump near Constance’s heart.

Constance was not only faced with a life-threatening diagnosis, but also had a little girl at home who needed care. “When faced with the facts, my immediate thought was, that I need to be there for my daughter, and responded to the doctors, ‘So, when do we begin treatment?”

Constance’s diagnosis was followed by months of chemotherapy treatment. During this challenging time, Constance found comfort in the Prince of Wales Hospital nurses. "The nurses are so passionate about their work… If I ever needed anything they would always do their best to make it happen. I thank you from the very bottom of my heart for making my experience as pleasant and comfortable as possible. You were my home away from home and I felt as though you were the family and support I needed every step of the way.”
