A torture and costly thing that will make the entire family suffer.
exactly true. after the whole ordeal I got into a 6 figure bill size and still lost my dad. Sometimes I wonder is it even worth trying.

Cancer is really a deadly and painful illness. A torture and costly thing that will make the entire family suffer.

Hope science and medicine has a cure for it as its effect to the patient and their loved ones are worse worse than COVID19 virus
Coming from a family of 3 cancer patients, 2 cleared, 1 still suffering...

Why would they want to cure you? Cure you = 1 time payment. Put you on eternal drugs + treatment = recurring payments.

Big Pharma doesn't want to cure, they want to treat you forever. All those breakthrough in cancer research announced over the years, nothing made to shelves or patients. My sister (pte doc) was put on 4K treatment every 3 weeks for over 2 years. 52 weeks = 70K, insurance + self top up.

My mom (pte doc) has been cleared over 20 years, but still needs to regularly go for medical check ups. My dad (public hosp) last year cleared of his colorectal cancer also, I spent 7 months changing his stoma bag and bringing him to doc (thank God for COVID and I was WFH all the way). My other sister was a SAHM, she took him everyday for 1 month+ for radiation treatment before COVID. The hassle... the money, every day was a headache... cancer doesn't kill the patient, it also kills the family.

Thanks, it's good, tiring, but more or less over. Dad's singing in the shower now. Mom is enjoying her TV everyday. My sis has not been working for the past 6 months after the company choose to let her go due to her frequent hospitalization and away from work. They paid her though, we all understood her company is not a charity organisation.

:) the horrible fees are at least over for now.
