Nining

Nining Yumiarti, 42 years old, known for her vibrant personality, chose to ignore the early signs of cancer in her left breast in 2002. Further check-ups at the hospital only served to confirm this.  She then opted for a mastectomy instead of chemotherapy, as she feared the latter treatment would affect her physically and psychologically, putting an effective stop to her favourite hobby, dancing. Nining later became a MAKNA volunteer and in 2012, she was recognised with MAKNA’s Excellence Volunteer Award.
