Hello! I'm Leonie. I’m from Malaysia. I am nineteen this year, and I have Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma - a kind of blood cancer. I’m just trying to live my life to the fullest, without any regrets. I'm grateful that I’m still able to wake up to a brand new day and know that I'm still alive.

I refuse to refer to my condition as a disease. I would rather phrase it as a 'series of unfortunate events'.

I learn something new with each passing day. This is the story of my journey, and you're welcome to follow me in every step that I take.

If you would like to learn more about me and my condition, feel free to click on the navigations below. If you have any queries or would just like to say hello, drop me an e-mail at and I'll try to respond as soon as possible!

where is the love?

I started off today by reading the newspaper.

A particular article caught my eye, and I would like to share it with all of my readers here.

The headlines of the article is certainly heart-wrenching.

Breast cancer survivor stabbed by snatch thief on pedestrian bridge.

Madam Leong Lai Yong fought breast cancer for over two years, and she succeeded in overcoming it. That's not an easy feat at all, fellow readers. As a cancer patient myself, I can sort of relate.

And her life ended cruelly, just like that. To a snatch thief.

To me, that snatch thief isn't even human. It's an animal.

My deepest condolences to her family members, relatives and friends. May her soul rest in peace on the other side.
