Puttinu Cares shared the story of Rachel Bezzina, a former patient of the NGO who, at the age of 15, had to start chemotherapy to beat cancer.
Suffering from Rhabdomyosarcoma, Rachel expressed how at such a young and tender age, Rachel had to put on hold a colourful future to beat the disease.
‘Due to this news, we, as one family, had to face incredible suffering and make great sacrifices’ said Rachel. She went on to say that what she did not expect was how Puttinu Cares, a massive and loving family in its own right, was ready to accept and help Rachel and her family to beat the deadly disease.
Beating the disease and going on to achieve the colourful future she dreamed of by becoming a psychology graduate, Rachel asked everyone to remember Puttinu on Good Friday.
The organisation is holding a massive fundraising marathon to help other cancer patients currently suffering with cancer. The marathon will be broadcast on all TV stations and will run from 10am to 3pm and then 9pm to midnight.
