Deborah Ng was only 16 when she found an unusual lump on her neck. Concerned, Deborah’s dad, Gordon, contacted a doctor and she was diagnosed with Stage 4 cancer. Gordon was overwhelmed with grief at the dire news.
But rather than give up, Deborah stayed strong. She studied hard for her O Levels, even during chemotherapy. She shaved off her hair when it started to fall. But some days, Deborah fell silent, curled up in pain.
Amid the turmoil, Gordon never stopped praying with his family. Others also prayed as the family held onto God. Despite her struggles, Deborah earned four ‘A’s in her O Levels. And in March 2021, after 7 months of intense treatment … Doctors finally declared Deborah to be in full remission.
Today, Deborah remains cancer-free as she prepares for university. Gordon thanks God and the medical team for saving his child’s life. Despite worrying over a possible relapse, he trusts that “God is always with us in our deepest pain.”
