The hefty medical fees depleted his savings. He had to sell off his home to pay the bills and moved into a rented flat subsidised by the government. At this point, a social worker referred him to the SCS which assisted him by providing welfare aid. This aid enabled him to not only survive but to thrive.
Embracing a positive attitude, he says, “Cancer is a mere word. As long as I am alive, there is always hope. One needs to be courageous, be strong to accept treatment, and to maintain a positive mindset.”
Mr Tee is among the thousands of cancer patients that SCS has helped over the past 50 years. At SCS, we believe that no one should fight cancer alone. Your donation will help fund our many programmes and services to Minimise Cancer and Maximise Life.
