Wish Child now leads a normal life
Raphael Lim Zi Xun, nine, was found to have acute lymphoblastic leukemia about three years ago.
It started with a fever, which the paediatrician realised was not normal.
Raphael was then referred to the KK Women's and Children's Hospital.
He was warded the same day, and he underwent chemotherapy within the next few days.
His mother, Madam Carol Choo Aileen, 39, is glad Raphael's condition was detected and treated early.
The administrative executive tells The New Paper on Sunday: "If it wasn't treated immediately, the white blood cells would have eaten up all the red blood cells."
Raphael went through intensive treatment for about a year, followed by treatment every three months.
He completed his treatment early this year, and life is back to normal for him.
He is back in school after a year of delay and is now a Primary 2 pupil at Mayflower Primary School.
