Caring for a Terminally Ill Child

Few parents may know the difficulty of raising a terminally ill child, but Marhaini Mustaffa has documented the trials and triumphs throughout the life of her daughter, Marisa, who was diagnosed with a brain tumour at age four and lived until she was eighteen. This strong-willed mother joins us to discuss her struggle to maintain a normal life for her family in the face of her daughter’s failing health.
