When actor Chew Chor Meng was diagnosed with Kennedy’s Disease (a rare genetic disorder that affects the nerves) in 2008, he had two doctors tell him that he had only 18 months to live.

Today, however, Chew remains well and alive, seven years after the prognosis given by the two doctors.

Chew shares his story in the three Youtube boxes below. The first is in Mandarin/Chinese, the second is an Teochew (however, it is incomplete), and the third is in English (but is audio-only).
