SINGAPORE - There is only one thing more precious than our time and that is who we spend it with. In your final moments, what is more precious than spending time with your family? That is 56-year-old Henry Lee’s dream.
Time waits for no one. But most people fail to realise that until it is too late.
As a father, Henry cooked, took care of his wife, did the housework and called the shots in the family. In fact, he was the pillar of the Lee family.
But on the day he was diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer, his entire world came crashing down.
Faced with the fact that Henry will soon be gone, his wife of 28 years, Madam Elsie Tan said, “If we want to do something, we should do it quickly and not put it off for too long, as we don't know what will happen the next day.”
Genting Highlands has always been a special place for the Lee family. It is the only place the family has been to on vacation.
For the past four years, Henry had been too preoccupied with providing a better life for his family; he could not even make time for a family vacation. As death approaches, his only wish is to relive the happy moments he had with his family.
To Henry, Genting Highlands is a happy place that never fails to melt all his troubles away, and he wishes to visit it one last time.
Henry gets weaker with each passing day. The team prepared themselves for every possible scenario -- they got the trip sponsored by Genting Highlands, hired a private nurse and ambulance to accompany them on the trip, and even had an undertaker on standby should Henry pass away during the vacation.
Unfortunately, a few days before the trip, Henry’s condition took a turn for the worse and he was admitted into hospital.
Time is running out for Henry. Will his dream come true? Watch the video to find out.
