Patients and their families had a happy mid autumn festival
On September 24th, a special mid-autumn festival evening party was held in Modern Cancer Hospital Guangzhou. More than 60 cancer patients and their families from Indonesia, Vietnam, Philippine, Malaysia, Thailand, etc participated in the party. Every participant felt happy and commentated that Modern Cancer Hospital Guangzhou made them feel at home.
The party was begun with a song, The Full Moon. The cancer patients and the staffs sang together and the atmosphere was stirred. The patients played many games in turn, such as blowing the balloon, making moon cake with fruit, etc. All the people at the party enjoyed the games and the atmosphere was lively. Especially when making the moon cake with fruit, the patients and their families creatively made different kinds of moon cake.
