Cancer strikes family: Man survives but loses brother, father
Man survives but loses brother and father after cancer strikes family
Cancer killed his father and brother.
And graphic designer, Richard Lim, 39, has it too.
The Singapore permanent resident had a cancerous growth removed from his left foot in 2008 but it has reappeared.
As he went through surgery to remove a growth in March, he struggled to care for his dying father and brother.
Mr Lim's mother, who is in her 60s, has been devastated by the loss.
He said: "She cried, 'Why are we so unlucky? Why must all three of you be affected by cancer at the same time?' I tried to comfort her but she was inconsolable."
Because of his financial woes after spending thousands of dollars on medical bills, he is now receiving financial assistance from a nonprofit organisation, the Ray of Hope Initiative.

BROTHERS HAVE RARE FORMS OF CANCER: ONCOLOGIST
Why did Steven Gerrard buy LA fans 500 bottles of beer?
Here is one sure-fire way to win over the fans.
Former Liverpool player and captain Steven Gerrard was officially introduced to the fans of his new club LA Galaxy on Saturday (July 4).
It turns out the 35-year-old was already busy before the meet-and-greet took place during half time of the 4-0 win over Toronto FC.
He was busy treating fans to 500 bottles of beer before the match, the Mirror reported.
While he has yet to wear the club's colours, Gerrard said in a message posted on the club's website and their Facebook page that he is excited to play for the team.
Since supporters are the team's lifeblood, he decided to show how much he appreciated the fans. So he bought beers for all three of LA Galaxy's fan clubs.
Pure class, Stevie G.

Car smashes through roof and this is what happens to driver
Talk about getting a rude wake-up call.
That's what one house occupant in the coastal town of Durban, South Africa, received on Thursday (July 2) — when a car driver smashed through the roof.
The driver was at the outskirts of the city when he claimed he went over "a ramp of some sort" and went flying.
That was how he ended up crashing both car and house in Kwamakhutha Township.

What's even more amazing? The driver was able to walk away with no major injuries.
The person sleeping in the house was also unhurt.
Emergency medical provider ER24 spokesman Pieter Rossouw said it's "kind of miraculous" that no one was hurt. PHOTO: YOUTUBE SCREENGRAB
Emergency medical provider ER24 reported the driver explaining that he had gone "over a ramp of some sort", which led him to collide with the building.
"It's really kind of miraculous," ER24 spokesman Pieter Rossouw told the BBC.
The cause of this incident remains unknown.
