COMMENT | My cousin-brother was born and raised in Penang. With his lack of education background, at the age of 38, he only managed to secure a job as a general worker and cleaner in our beloved Pearl of the Orient.
In 2018, he fell on the streets and injured himself. As a diabetic patient, the injury later developed into gangrene. Following his doctor’s advice, a year later, he had his toes and part of his left foot removed.
Unfortunately, while he was recovering, the doctor discovered that his right foot was also suffering from gangrene and recommended that my cousin have it removed as well.
