The children are happy to attend the ceremony
This is part of the special classroom for cancer child patients and Thuy’s Dream Programme.
Nearly 50 child patients have attended the new school year ceremony. In the past 10 years, the programme has received 1,200 children who have been patients at the Oncology Hospital. At first, it was only a playground for the children then the volunteers start teaching first-grade pupils. After that, the programme was opened for first to ninth-graders who had to take a leave of absence from schools.

Many people said they were moved after seeing the children without hairs or lost a limb enjoying the day with their intravenous needles.

Another child patient, Bach Ngoc Tieu Vy loves studying and works hard to catch up with the programme at school. The classroom has become her favourite place at the hospital.
However, there are still many children couldn’t join the ceremony at HCM City Oncology Hospital due to health issues. In the end, they could only watch the ceremony from afar.
