I am PhD student in UMCG, doing research on breast cancer. During my MD training in China, I have seen a lot of breast cancer patients. I can feel their fears and worries when they are diagnosed with breast cancer, and also their regained hope and courage for life after suitable treatment from hospital. Cancer research really makes difference for the people who are suffering from cancer, giving a second chance for their life. But cancer research really causes a lot of money, that’s why I take part in the city swim. I want to raise some money to support the UMCG cancers research and help cancer patients! Besides, as a person who pretty like swimming, how can I live in Groningen so long without swimming in the canal even once? The city swim will be both interesting and meaningful for me!
