Survivor inspires with positive outlook

I am encouraged after reading about Ms Kwan Yuling ("No room for self-pity, but a fighting spirit"; last Sunday).

She has a support network to help her, such as social workers, nurses and her employer.

It goes to show that no man is an island, and anyone who has fallen needs people around him to stand on his feet once again.

Even with a support network, it will not help if the person is not receptive. Hence, I laud Ms Kwan for her own efforts. Although she faced many health problems, she managed to recover and thrive in her current job.

For someone who does not have a lot in life, she continues to have a pragmatic outlook. Her positive attitude is an inspiration to me.
