25 Aug 21
Our Veteran brother, Cpl Tan Yow Fatt RMAF (SN:705581), age 66 have served the RMAF as an Armourer for nearly 15 years including resettlement. He was based in Kuantan & Butterworth.
Brother Tan was diagnosed with multiple myeloma in 2016. He also suffered from Parkinson's disease. Unfortunately, his sickness has now further developed into acute myeloma leukaemia. Presently, he feels very weak and unable to walk on his own and at the same time suffers from loss of appetite.
Due to his inability to walk, Tan had requested NC assistance for a wheelchair for his family member to assist his movement. As such, under our MPMA programme which was permanently in placed since last year, a wheelchair was arranged through Peace & Harmony (P&H) Home in Gelugor, Penang where NC had an arrangement with the home to provide hospital equipments requested for our Veteran or family members in need throughout the whole Northern Region.
Upon request this afternoon, a wheelchair was immediately arranged with Mr Tan Swee Ban, Principal of P&H Home. It was handed over to his wife Mdm Khoo Saw Then at P&H Home this afternoon as Tan was getting discharged from GH Penang after one week admission and he needed the wheelchair.
NC would like to extend its profound gratitudes to P&H Home and Mr Tan SB for the home's solid backing in line with our Mobility Assistance programme.
