Sketcher at Ward Encourages Himself by Painting Others*

NGUYEN DANH CUONG‘s Interview

Those working at Modern Cancer Hospital Guangzhou or living nearby have seen that an old man with ruddy face wears black sunglasses and always smile happily. He usually walks around every ward, hospital canteen, Baiyun Mountain, etc and takes a piece of paper and a pencil to paint for others and communicates with people by body-language. People who are invited to be painted always receive his invitation with happily smile and satisfy his wishes. This old man is NGUYEN DANH CUONG, an anticancer warrior.

NGUYEN DANH CUONG, 66 years old, was supposed to spend his remaining life in comfort but the continual cough and chest distress made him suffered because he couldn’t eat or sleep well. Thus, he went to see a doctor and the local doctor diagnosed him with pneumonia and prescribed him antibiotics. However, the condition went worse and he developed into a tough cough which had lasted 10 months. NGUYEN DANH CUONG went to another doctor for help and he was diagnosed with lung cancer.

The optimistic NGUYEN DANH CUONG became worried and nervous so he searched professional cancer hospital via Internet, magazine, etc. He by chance knew his friend had gotten a good efficacy for lung cancer treatment at Modern Cancer Hospital Guangzhou so he went to the local consulting office and determined to treat cancer at Modern Cancer Hospital Guangzhou China.

Luckily, due to inspection in time and under the characteristic MDT remedial model, the condition was controlled quickly by interventional therapy and biological comprehensive natural therapy. The symptom of cough was gone and the tumor was shrunk 2 cm ( For now, the tumor was completely gone). All of these brought new hope to NGUYEN DANH CUONG and he gradually relieved his stress and became optimistic as usual.

When receiving treatment at Modern Cancer Hospital Guangzhou, NGUYEN DANH CUONG forgot that he was a patient and enriched himself by learning sketch. He enjoyed grasping a pencil, a rubber and a piece of paper, walking wards, painting pictures of doctors, nurses, and patients from Philippine, Indonesia, Cambodia, etc. and also communicating with people who speak other languages by body-language. He also climbed up to Baiyun Mountain and painted for people who take exercises at Baiyun Mountain. Every time he finished painting, he gave the painting to people and took photos with them as .
