My mom is the strongest woman I know. She worked everyday of her life trying to reach her goals. Coming from a financially poor background she strived for greatness, good status and success. After many years dedicating her energy and time to companies in the corporate world, she decided to start her own business by building and opening her very own beach resort located on the East Coast of Malaysia. The business, named Villa Danialla Beach Resort has been operating since 2006 and have expanded throughout the years also receiving recognition by getting awards such as 4 star rating by the Ministry of Tourism and Culture Malaysia and as well as the most recent awards Best Hospitality Concept Resort and Hospitality Superstar by Asia Pacific Tourism & Travel Awards 2019.
Those are just several achievements she has conquered. She has always been full of life, young at heart, welcoming, warm, fun, informative, curious and caring. After learning any updates on what's healthy to consume she would share it with everyone she meets. Even though the concept of running a resort by the beach was a good one, the implementation of it was too tough to maintain and we were suffering financially especially after the government went through the biggest change in years. Economy has been very bad for business owners.
Unfortunately, a couple of years ago she started showing symptoms of speech slur. She went through many medical tests to find out what's wrong but the results were negative for all the major diseases such as heart disease, cancer or stroke. Then, mid year of 2018, she was diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease (ALS). With the resort struggling financially while we wait to sell the property, my mom has to undergo treatment at an ALS treatment centre every month in order to try and slow down the deterioration process.
She cannot rely on the business for income due to the fact that it's in the red. Any amount of help given will be much appreciated. All the donations received will be used for her medical treatment. Thank you for taking the time to read this.
