“My mother spent more than half her life with NKF. She received so much help and care here. Now that she’s gone, it’s time we give back.”
– Mr Terence Ng, caregiver to the late Mdm Tan Siew Huang
When Mr Terence Ng was born, the joy of his birth was dampened with a devastating diagnosis of kidney failure for his mother, Mdm Tan Siew Huang. For the next 37 years, Terence grew up witnessing the struggles of his mother as a dialysis patient. Despite the challenges, Mdm Tan maintained a positive outlook on life and trudged on for her children. Her husband became the family’s sole breadwinner. On top of subsidies for dialysis treatments, Mdm Tan and family received mental and emotional support from NKF. When Mdm Tan passed on in June 2022, Terence made a donation in appreciation of the years of care rendered to his beloved mother.
Families like Mdm Tan’s are able to remain by the side of their loved ones for many years despite kidney failure, because of the help they receive from donors and the community. With your generous and continued partnership, NKF is able to sustain our life-saving mission of Giving Life and Hope to patients and their families.
