KUCHING: A big smile broke across the face of cancer-stricken Aaron Bagat Alexander, 17, when a laptop was placed in front of him.
His smile went brighter when he was presented with Call on Duty DVD game by the Children's Wish Society of Malaysia (CWS).
CWS is an organisation set up primarily to aid children suffering from terminal and life-threatening illnesses, by granting them a wish.
"My favourite game is Call on Duty," said Aaron, who has always wanted a laptop where he can play computer games like other teenagers.
Ever since he was bed-ridden in 2010 and stopped going to school, Aaron spends most of his time watching television to pass time.
"Watching television helps to divert my attention, especially when the pain is unbearable. I hope the DVD games will also serve the same purpose. Sometimes, it is just so painful that I cannot take it."
Aaron's mother, Catherine Wilson Unting, 44 said Aaron was first discovered to have cancer in his tibia when he was in Form One in 2008.
After his tibia was replaced by a metal implant, he started to experience difficulties in walking because the metal implant placed in him was of the wrong size.
Aaron was forced to give up his favourite sports, football, though he continued to remain an ardent Manchester United fan.
When all bad things seemed to be over, the worst came when it was discovered that cancer has spread to his lungs in 2010.
"He went through three surgeries to remove the tumours in his lungs - first left lung, then right lung, and then left again.
"Now he cannot go through anymore operation because of the too many surgeries which he has gone through.
"Now, the tumour has spread to the heart," said Catherine.
