Together, let's build a #CityofGood - a Singapore that Cares!
At the age of 82, one would expect Mdm Tham to be sitting at home, enjoying the best of her retirement. Sadly, this is not the case. For the last 11 years, Mdm Tham has spent her time not only working as a janitor, but also tirelessly travelling to BVH to visit Ms Dolly Yee, her daughter.
Before being admitted into BVH, Ms Dolly was an energetic and ambitious young lady who held two jobs to support her mum. The mother and daughter pair shared a close-knit relationship, bonded by their common love for karaoke.
However, in 2005, Ms Dolly was diagnosed with a malignant brain tumour. She was 44 years old then and has been fighting for her life since. Despite having gone through an operation, her condition has deteriorated over the years and now leaves her bed-bounded and uncommunicative.
The severity of Ms Dolly's condition requires her to be fed through a nasogastric tube, as well as undergo regular physiotherapy. Fortunately, the high cost of treatment is absorbed as Ms Dolly receives full hospital subsidy. With the financial burden lifted, Mdm Tham can focus on providing for herself and her daughter with more ease.
