Dear all,

We may not know personally Foo Hee Boon, the writer of this book: Gifts of Life - Facing Cancer (Read the foreword here (http://www.kukujian.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/07/gift-of-life-foreword.pdf)). He was an inspiring lung cancer patient who created the motivating blog Hee Boon's Amazing New Adventure: http://fhbadventure.blogspot.com/. My friends and I learnt about him in 2006, that's the last year of his life as Hee Boon succumbed to his illness in 2006.

His book on his experience with cancer is going to be launched on this Sat, 9 Aug at Nilai Cancer Institute (NCI). (http://www.nci.com.my/location.asp) You are invited to this book launch.

Please RSVP directly your attendance to Vivien Foo, 016-2191938 or Chan Yoke Mun at yokemun2001@yahoo.com.

It was indeed a very touching event, with sharings from Hee Boon's consulting physician, friends and even celebrity Eric Leong, who decorated Hee Boon's wall of family photo (his wish made through Astro's Ku Mohon program).

I have posted some excerpts from his book in my blog posting entitled, Tribute to Hee Boon (http://subangdailyphoto.blogspot.com/2008/08/tribute-to-hee-boon.html).
