Caspian International News Agency- Watchara Nadee, also known as Kru Lek, is a Thai teacher who goes to school everyday and teaches, in spite of having cancer and a 10-kg tumor in his shoulder. He found out he had a tumor a year ago, and at first his disease didn’t seem serious.
At the beginning of this year, his shoulders started to get swollen, and lead him to the hospital. Although, he was able to receive $2200 each year from insurance, this money doesn’t cover all the expenses of his treatment.
His mother is 74 years old and paralyzed. Because he doesn’t want his mother to see his tumor and get worry, Kru Le always covers his tumor with a scarf.
He thanked his students and said, “My students give me motivation. I get my strong will from them”.
