Alhamdulillah, the activity was participated by 19 volunteers. They enthusiastically enjoyed the activity and followed the instruction given by Desy,” said Branch Manager of MRI Semarang Regency, Elvan Ardi, Tuesday (10/26/2021).

Desy Noor Anggraeni is a single mother who is struggling to survive malignant cancer. She is diagnosed with type 3 Nasopharyngeal Carcinoma Sinister. Desy has been through various treatments including intensive treatment in Ken Saras Hospital, Semarang, Central Java.
