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.
