Singaporean cancer survivor Tan Siew Khim, 50, encountered Laughter Yoga barely two years ago, learning from Laughter Guru Dr. Madan Kataria and laughter teacher Lee Sok Lian at Sun Island Resort in Shanghai, China. Laughter is now a way of life for this plucky lady.
When she first discovered the cancer, Siew Khim was filled with fear. Not wanting to be a burden to her family, she had wanted to, in her own words, “leave this world quietly”. Instead of letting cancer triumph over her, she reclaimed her life and made every day count. In her fight against cancer, Siew Khim staunchly refused to accept ownership of the disease.
