60-year-old Mr Tan has been a stroke patient since 2002. His wife, Mdm Ong, was found to be diagnosed with advanced-stage breast cancer a few years after Mr Tan’s stroke. She went for chemotherapy, followed by surgery and radiotherapy. Unfortunately, 3 years after she had recovered from breast cancer, she had a relapse and was later diagnosed with final-stage spine cancer. She is currently undergoing intensive treatments.
At Xin Yuan Community Care, we have wellness machines and regular exercise regimes to improve Mr Tan’s balance, strength, flexibility and endurance. With rehabilitation, he has relearned basic skills such as dressing and walking, thus regaining some of his independence and self-confidence.
Mr Tan and Mdm Ong have a son who has just completed serving his national service and is now preparing for University while working to support the family.
Given that the couple are unable to work with their pre-existing medical conditions, Xin Yuan has stepped in to provide assistance to this family. Besides providing rehabilitation and therapy sessions for the couple, Xin Yuan has helped the family out by providing them with groceries and covering their medical bills.
With your support, Xin Yuan can continue to provide aid to this family. Your contribution will go a long way towards helping them.
