Helena

Helena Lau spoke at the 2010 Thanksgiving Service. She described how she had just turned 16 years old when she became seriously sick and had to be admitted into hospital. ”As a 16-year-old you don’t think beyond having a boyfriend, buying clothes and planning the next outing with your mates,” she said.
