Steven Yeoh is aged 50 years old and a cancer survivor. He was diagnosed with stage 4 nose cancer in 2016 and went through 6 months of Chemotherapy and Radiotherapy. It was a tough and long fight. Despite that, his family and friends supported him throughout the ordeal and this made him stronger and more determined. Sharing his experience, Steven said, "No matter what happens in life, we should stay strong, continue living on and choose not to give up easily. Life has its ups and downs and it is important to have a positive mindset."
Fully recovered and currently an active participant in the running community, Steven even managed to climb mountains and take part in a marathon in Vietnam one month after he had completed his treatment!
Once a marine engineer, Steven stopped work due to his medical condition and is trying to lessen the stress factors in his life and running has helped build up his immune system and made him healthier. When asked about his motivation to take part in the Relay Majulah, he feels that we can run for a good cause and inspire others to not give up. On a parting note, Steven has an open invitation for us, "Run alongside me in my campaign to uplift those who needs our help, so we can rise as a nation by lifting others up."
