After a stormy hospitalization and new diagnosis of advanced nasopharyngeal cancer, Mr Cheong suffered multiple losses including his independence, his senses of hearing and speech, and more importantly, his roles as a breadwinner, a husband and a father.

As a result, he became moody and withdrawn. He was reluctant to participate in activities, preferring to stay in bed and stare into space.

In September 2019, Mr Cheong was introduced to art therapy to help him better manage his emotions. Initially hesitant, he surprised the team when he became very inspired by an abstract artwork and started looking forward to art therapy sessions. He also became more engaged with the speech, physio and occupational therapists, and was slowly able to confidently navigate around independently, and self-engage in art-making.

Mr Cheong's artworks tell an ongoing story of his healing and self-actualisation journey. He continued making art until his peaceful passing in early June 2020. You can view his online art gallery here: www.cheongkumwah.wordpress.com.

One of Mr Cheong's greatest wishes was to raise funds through his artworks, to pay it forward. Help us fulfill Mr Cheong's wishes by making a gift today. All donations will go towards providing art therapy for terminally-ill patients through the Programme of All Inclusive Care for the Terminally Ill (PACT) Fund.

About the Charity

In keeping with Mr Tan Tock Seng's Legacy of Giving, Tan Tock Seng Hospital (TTSH) set up its charity arm, TTSH Community Fund, in August 1995 to improve the quality of life of our patients and the community.

Today, our Charity runs more than 100 patient-centred programmes, disbursing more than $2 million each year for the Charity's activities. We support over 2,500 needy patient cases, especially the elderly and those who fall through the cracks of the system, and those who are unable to receive help from traditional charitable agencies.

From expensive non-standard medication and breathing equipment to mobility aids, community rehabilitation programmes, and even dentures to help them eat better, TTSH Community Fund helps needy patients to gain greater independence, improve their quality of life and enable them to integrate back into the community. The Fund also supports healthcare research, innovation, and training for our staff and the community to deliver better patient care.

Our Charity runs entirely on public donations. Every dollar to the Charity goes directly to support our activities. The TTSH Community Fund is a registered charity with IPC status.

2020 mark our Silver Jubilee, and TTSH Community Fund is grateful to our donors and well-wishers for their continued support, which has enabled us to serve the needy patients in the community these past 25 years.
