The woman who beat cancer with hope: Raziye Kocaismail!
Assist. Prof. Dr. Mutlu Soykurt designs her books as a moment of homage. Raziye Kocaismail, the heroine of the second book, is one of the symbols of the fight against cancer in the TRNC. Raziye Kocaismail, who was given very little chance of life in 1991, when she was diagnosed with cancer, regained her health in 1993 after a two-year struggle with cancer. Kocaismail, who established the Association for Helping Cancer Patients without waiting, raised a great awareness about cancer in the TRNC through the awareness seminars she organized voluntarily and many social responsibility activities. Assist. Prof. Dr. Soykurt says in her book; “Over the past years, she regained her health, and her surroundings and everyone who believes in her has been reborn. She guided patients who could not reach treatment opportunities, removed cancer from being a taboo, boosted the morale of patients with psychological help programs and helped them to cling to life, established the ‘Hope Education and Culture House’, a first in the country for children who experienced this disease in childhood and had leukemia or lymphoma. Raziye Kocaismail has become an angel of hope for cancer patients living in the TRNC!
