I was recently diagnosed with Classical Hodgkins Lymphoma STAGE 4a. This came to me 3 months after having started training at the Police Officer Basic Course where I was training to become a Police Officer. I found out about a large lump in my neck 2 months in but did not go see a doctor whatsoever because it would put me out of training and affect my posting in the future so I decided to ignore it; bad choice. Once the lump got too big I thought this was not worth sabotaging my health so I went to see a doctor where I was diagnosed with Stage 4 cancer after multiple scans. Being only 19 years old it obviously came as a huge shock.
The money is to pay for scans, and medical expenses such as transport to the hospital and immunity products such as masks, sanitisers and much more surrounding my cancer treatment. Being in Singapore amidst the coronavirus period and having very low blood white blood cells to fend off infections is very scary and stressful. Furthermore, treatment in Singapore is of excellent quality but also very expensive. Both my parents are currently out of a job and well, I can't take up a new job because of my condition and due to the fact I made a commitment to the Police Force where I still receive a base salary of $630 a month. This money will really help with my current financial situation.
