The Educational Psychology and Special Education department of SIUC would like to come together to provide support to our dear colleague, Nor Asma Othman who was recently diagnosed with an undetermined type of cancer.

Ms. Nor Asma Othman has been a Ph.D. student in the Counselor Education program in the Department of Educational Psychology and Special Education at Southern Illinois University Carbondale for two years. She is a mother, wife, teacher, mentor, student and researches how Malaysian women cope with drug addiction in their families. Recently she has been diagnosed with an undetermined type of cancer that has threatened to end her life in a short amount of time. She has been an amazing inspiration to many and has a heart that works hard to show compassion toward others. Due to the undetermined amount of time that she has, it may take multiple treatments to provide her the help that is needed. She desires not to claim the rest of her life as her own but to be there for her four sons and to complete the journey that she has only just begun. As her friends and colleagues, we feel a strong desire to give back to Nor what she has provided for us. We feel that the greatest gift that we can provide is the quality of life that she deserves in which she will continue to use on others. Please offer what you can in order to help us provide this gift to her in this precious amount of time. The money will go toward both medical and travel expenses that her family will need in order to provide her support.
