- Breast Cancer Survivor
At 67, most of us would not be able to throw our legs behind our heads, much less do dragon-boating, an extremely physically demanding sport, but this lady is an exception!
Other than dragon-boating, Eva coaches special Yoga at Breast Cancer Foundation weekly for breast cancer survivors. She finds her life more enriching doing this. It also helps her visualise the good things in life. We managed to attend one of her classes and were deeply amazed at her flexibility and agility in performing all the different moves!
If you think she looks familiar, you are absolutely right. Once featured in a book entitled ‘Cancer Warriors’ and recently interviewed on ‘Rouge’, Eva is no stranger to the media. With ever-ready inspirational messages to share, she is one woman we really look up to.
1998 was the year in which Eva contracted breast cancer, but it did not spell disaster for her. Of course, the process was undeniably difficult to go through but what eventually came out was a whole new life for her, she became more appreciative of the simple things in life.
An avid nature-lover as well as pet lover, she constantly seeks new EXPERIENCES in them.
“Seeing the sun rise everyday makes me happy, it means that I am given a chance to LIVE another day.”
With the ever-strong support of her husband, Eva lives her life to the fullest. She also draws her strength from her grandchildren, whom she visits regularly in Australia.
Though a Christian, she believes that all religions are there to help each other. And as a strong believer in faith, she says that the mind is a very powerful object and she always thinks positively about things.
“I believe in ‘one-ness’ íV it is important not to feel different from others.”
