At her old age of 70, she took a job at McDonald’s Bedok branch at Singapore because of boredom. For almost 20 years of service, she showed a very fruitful time with her colleagues. But in October 2017, she started having difficulties in her condition because of her serious illness. Even so, she continued working despite her illness but reduced her workload to 3 hours on weekends from a 5-day work. In January 2018, she was diagnosed with stomach cancer which caused her health to deteriorate.
Madam Goh didn’t undergo any surgical procedure or chemotherapy because the doctor advised that she may no longer bear the pain due to her old age.
