Julia Koh has always tried to live a healthy and active lifestyle. In 2010 her world came crashing down when she was diagnosed with Stage 3A Lung Cancer. Twelve years on, Julia is now cancer-free. She credits keeping a positive mindset and the support of her loved ones for getting her through the tough times. As she reflects on her cancer journey, Julia offers some words of wisdom for people going through a recent cancer diagnosis.
“Open your heart and do not keep things to yourself. Feel free to share your feelings with your loved ones. Stay strong and positive to fight on. Life is always challenging and no one can predict what is next. There is no point lamenting why you are suffering this sickness, even though you may have eaten well and had a healthy lifestyle before getting cancer,” Julia said.
