Grandpa of four: model of confident optimism


This year marks the thirteenth year since his first diagnosis of stage four prostate cancer.
Sng Tiang Kee is a model of confident optimism even when afflicted with cancer. He is a proud grandfather of four, coaches badminton, picked up playing the ukulele in recent years, and is even a 2017 Run for Hope Ambassador.

More recently, he’s one of the faces of National Cancer Centre Singapore‘s ‘Make More Survivors‘ campaign, to help combat the cancer tsunami we know is coming.

When asked what made him decide to fight cancer, and be a survivor, Mr Sng said, “As soon as I knew I had cancer, I had decided to fight back. I had surgery immediately and did not want to delay it by discussing with my family“.

An active person all his life, he played badminton throughout all his treatments. Even if he had chemotherapy in the morning, he continued to play badminton that afternoon!
