Mr. Koh Siang Kai was diagnosed with lung cancer 5 years ago. Like many others, Mr. Koh felt overwhelmed, angry, depressed and fearful when he first received his diagnosis. It wasn’t easy, but Mr. Koh’s resilience and support from family members empowered him to take one day at a time, and persevere. In his words, “As long we are breathing, there’s still hope. Don’t give up. Just #keepbreathing.”
