Early last year, Hougang United FC coach, Amin Nasir, was diagnosed with Stage IV colon cancer. Despite his grave condition, help came in the form of newer innovations in cancer treatment. With constant motivation from loved ones around him, Amin found the strength to fight against the illness.
Cancer wasn’t ‘new’ to him, as he had supported and watched his son Ashrul Syafeeq battle against Leukaemia 10 years earlier. He knew it was going to be a physically and mentally challenging battle, but he was inspired by his son’s relentless fight who is now a cancer-free 19 year old.
Now, a year later, Amin is in remission and he is one of this year’s Run For Hope ambassadors.
“I want to send the message to all other cancer patients out there that they are not alone.”
