Andrew Hui: I’m 32 and I’m Dying

Editor’s Note: Andrew passed away peacefully at 11:25 p.m. (Singapore time) on 31 August 2019. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends.

At 32, Andrew Hui now has an estimated two to three months left to live.

His latest treatment option of radiation was ceased a month ago after it was deemed no longer effective in controlling the spread of the cancer cells in his body. Since then, the tumor has been growing rapidly, and the lymphoma has spread to almost every critical organ and is pressing against important blood vessels.

Despite having just a month or so left where he would still be conscious and lucid, Andrew enthusiastically made time for this interview  at the hospital before being discharged back home to be made comfortable on palliative care as death looms.

“I want to encourage people to trust in God during the darkest points of their lives,” he said.

 

A Shocking Discovery

Andrew hadn’t always viewed his condition this way. It took months of wrestling before he was able to reach this stage of peace and acceptance towards his prognosis—which came as a bolt from the blue last June.

Doctors had found out about the cancer in his body during a visit Andrew had made to the hospital’s emergency department one night because he was running a high fever. X-ray tests showed signs of a tumor growth in the upper part of his chest. Further biopsy tests identified it as Stage 1 Aggressive Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma.

Yet, doctors were confident that his was not a complicated case and had even told him that 90 per cent of people who had this cancer at this stage have been cured.

So Andrew put his hope in probability and medical science, presuming that his treatment would be like a few months of “holiday”, and confident that he would recover soon enough.

But he was in the 10 per cent.

Undergoing six rounds of R-EPOCH therapy, a form of chemotherapy, did not help him.

So doctors gunned for a stronger form of chemo—RICE therapy. This time, they said, some 70 to 80 per cent would successfully have their cancer treated by it.

Again, he went for four rounds of treatment but was found to be in the 20 to 30 per cent of people for whom this treatment did not work.

He was next put on immunotherapy which was deemed to be suitable for 99 per cent of patients.

Andrew, however, once again found himself in the one per cent deemed unsuitable for the treatment due to the severe side effects that emerged.

“This is as straightforward a message you could get from God, don’t you think so?” Andrew said matter-of-factly, with a laugh and a glint in his eye.

“I had placed my faith in medical science and when that failed, He has shown me I need to drastically change my perspective and fall back on Him totally,” he added.

 

A Time of Questioning

Despite being a believer from young and one who actively served in church as a musician and leader, Andrew wrestled with God over his sickness earlier this year.

Why me? 

Andrew was not one who was careless with his diet or lifestyle.

The young banker did not drink or smoke. Instead, he would have salads for lunch five days a week and frequently head to the gym after work.

Why now?

His questions to God piled up thick and fast. “I have barely fulfilled 10 per cent of my dreams and I thought You would be able to use me to a greater extent. I have been serving in church for 20 years and this is the way I am to go? This is how You tell the world that you care for Your servant?”

In his anger and disappointment with God, Andrew also lashed out at other Christians.

“They proclaimed or declared healing on me as they believed that by His stripes, God has carried our pain and bore it all (Isaiah 53:5). But I can’t reconcile it with the fact that I am not only not healed but also getting worse. It gave me false hope. So I scolded them and shut them out,” said Andrew.

“The way I see it, if He chooses to heal me, then his task for me on earth is not done. If I am not healed, then it is time for me to go home, so either way it is a win-win situation.”

Part of Andrew’s struggle and despair also stemmed from the fact that he was in a lot of pain.

He had to deal with nausea, lethargy, and hair loss, and many a time he would throw up so violently that his stomach contents would hit the wall.

Bad coughing fits would leave him curling up into a ball on his bed and his heart would shatter whenever he saw his mother crying by his bedside.

A Turning Point

However, a profound sense of peace and acceptance of death came when Andrew’s view  of God shifted.

“I have always viewed His sovereignty over my life as something that can’t be questioned. He can do as He likes and pleases, and we have no right to ask for, say favor, unless He gives it. I saw His sovereignty as judicious and high and mighty,” said Andrew.

“But later I realized that the way He expresses His sovereignty is through love. What is happening to me may not be good but He is good and His sovereignty is seen in how He carries me through the storms in life,” he added.

One of the verses that has helped Andrew arrive at this understanding is Ephesians 3:17-18, which says, “And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God”

His trust in God’s love and sovereignty has cast out any fear he used to have in facing his mortality.

“I have zero fear of death now. When I close my eyes for the last time, I am more certain about being with Him than I can have in boarding a plane and being assured of reaching my destination,” said Andrew, who worships at St. Matthew’s church.

“That is the certainty I cling on to. Without that, if God or Jesus didn’t exist, I would have committed suicide because then all my hope is gone and there is no point or meaning to life,” he added.

He is also immensely grateful for having a church family who fasted, prayed, and cried with him throughout his period of illness. Many volunteered to buy food for him or to drive him to and from his home and the hospital.

A Dying to Self

Though Andrew was born into a Christian family and grew up in church, he only truly “came to faith” or owned his faith when he was 16.

He was in a Boys’ Brigade service in chapel one day and the lyrics of the song “So You Would Come” touched him immensely:

Nothing you can do
Could make Him love you more
And nothing that you’ve done
Could make Him close the door

These words pierced Andrew’s heart as he used to throw himself into doing good works or serving in church to try to atone for his sins.

The lyrics of the song gave Andrew a sense of freedom as he began to realize that God loves him and that he did not need to do anything to earn it. It also gave him the hope that despite his sins, God will never close the door on him.

But the journey since then hadn’t always been smooth-sailing.

Though he majored in communications and media studies, he joined the banking sector after graduation as it was more financially lucrative.

The number-crunching did not interest or excite him, but he had put money above fulfilment then as he loved to travel to experience different cultures and food. He also wanted to support the church by funding its missions work.

So Andrew worked long hours to climb up the corporate ladder and 12-hour workdays were the norm. His last position was as a manager in private banking.

But what he learned at the age of 16 never completely left him. The peace that comes with being convicted of God’s full acceptance and love for him, said Andrew, is the same peace that guards his heart now that he faces a larger battle of faith in confronting death.

A Blessing Through Faith

Besides having the assurance of peace and knowing that he will meet Jesus in heaven after he dies, Andrew said his faith also makes a difference in mitigating his present pain.

“When I call out to him for help at night because of the pain, I find that the pain lessens when I focus on God and I will fall into deep sleep after that,” said Andrew.

Andrew’s faith has also enabled him to see the blessings that have arisen out of his illness, such as being able to know when he is going to die, and to be able to die without pain.

“This is so that I can prepare for death and say what I need to say and do what I need to do.

The pain medication and palliative care also enables me to be comfortable and die with a smile on my face,” he said.

Lately he has been able to talk to his parents about topics such as what they would be doing when he is gone and what they would use his room for.

“It is a blessing to be able to have such conversations because then there will be closure for them as well,” said Andrew, who is preparing a “death box” that contains all his farewell messages to his loved ones and friends.

“I don’t believe in having sad funerals. I want mine to be happy and I also want to have a gathering now when I am around to thank and affirm people who are important to me and enjoy good food together,” said Andrew, who enjoys cooking, and used to cook anything from kaya to sambal to mooncakes for church fundraisers.

These days, he finds himself not really thinking about death, but about “short-term” things such as his craving for tulang, or bone marrow soup.

One unrealized dream he has is to set up a soup kitchen with his two close friends for migrant workers or anyone who needs a meal.

“If I were to live my life again, I think the only part I would change is perhaps going into social service because that may bring more of a difference to the lives of others. But then again, I don’t know. I am who I am today because of all the moments in the past that shaped me,” said Andrew, who has a father with polio.

 

A Final Wish

His greatest wish now is to reconnect with people in his life, such as his primary and secondary school friends whom he has lost touch with.

When asked why he prioritizes his precious time with people he is not close to, Andrew said his heart is for them to come to know the peace that they can have through Christ.

“Whether they are busy working adults or battling their own problems, I want to share this peace that I have with them. So that when they come to the end of their lives, which may happen any time, they would know of a peace that money or toil or relationships or health or wealth cannot bring,” said Andrew.

“I want them to not hear of me as just someone who died, but a person who is waiting to welcome them in heaven and who desires to see them again in heaven.”

    (2 Corinthians 5: 8-9) We are confident, I say, and would prefer to be away from the body (our earthly body) and at home with the Lord. So we make it our goal to please Him, whether we are at home in the body or away from it.
    Brother Andrew, continue to be rooted in Christ’s Love.
    Remember (2 Corinthians 1: 3-5 Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God. For just as we share abundantly in the sufferings of Christ, so also our comfort abounds through Christ.) Worthy is the Lamb that bore our sins through unbearable pain on the cross.

    Hi Andrew, thank you for sharing your very inspiring life story, they have greatly warm up my heart. Like you, I was that 10 percent with severe side effects in 2015. With a second relapse, there’s currently no more primary treatment left. Nevertheless, all things will work for the good of those who loves Him, for those who have been called according to His purposes (Romans 8:28). With that realization, the peace of God which transcend all understanding will guard our hearts & mind, in Christ Jesus.

    John 6:53-58
    53 Then Jesus said to them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink His blood, you have no life in you. 54 Whoever eats My flesh and drinks My blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day. 55 For My flesh is food indeed, and My blood is drink indeed. 56 He who eats My flesh and drinks My blood abides in Me, and I in him. 57 As the living Father sent Me, and I live because of the Father, so he who feeds on Me will live because of Me. 58 This is the bread which came down from heaven—not as your fathers ate the manna, and are dead. He who eats this bread will live forever.”

    Hi Andrew,
    I just lost a friend a few days ago to cancer. She was as brave and as strong as you. I see that you had led a very fulfilling and enriching life outside of your banking job. Like you, she led a very fulfilling one too and even more so after she found out that she ‘was given a death sentence’ in her own words.

    I believe God has an even BIGGER plan for you on the other side. We just have to live our life with faith and trust in Him. I am not able to quote biblical verses like most Christians do though I am a born Catholic> However, in times of those dark hours in our life, I know i can find solace and love in Him. Keep that positive energy and outlook in your remaining earthly journey and with NO regrets. I close with a silent prayer that you will depart with no pain and in great peace. Amen.

    Today in our church, we had a discussion of losing faith when we discussed about Hudson Taylor and how God is faithful, and a real conversion took place when he was 17. And we also touched on how God is sovereign and why somethings things happened not according to our wishes but yet God wants us to continue to trust Him. So reading on Andrew Hui, it seems God has given us a second affirmation of what we discussed. Andrew Hui has left us a great testimony that glorified our Lord, and became a strength to many whom are also in a journey of struggle. My prayers for the peace of Andrew’s family.

    I am so moved! I did promise to serve God and his. My prayer is for people to realize he is the reason we exist. My prayer is for strength and means to spread his word. I would like to help out those in the darkest point in their life. Those in immense difficulty and at the point of giving up. My message is simple “God will never forsake thee”. Everything happens for a reason.

Our faith in God will always be our shining hope and glory. We always say Life is short and Time is gold. We have to live to the fullest but let’s keep our love and faith in God strong till “that time” comes.

    Dear Mr & Mrs Hui,
    My deepest condolences to you on the passing of your beloved son Andrew. You have brought him up very well. Although he suffered physically at such a young age, he was courageous and faithful to the end by giving a lovely and touching testimony of God’s love and grace. Indeed, God was merciful in calling him home earlier than 2 months. Andrew is in a better place, where there’s no more pain or sorrow. He is in the Lord Jesus’ arms.

    I’m very touched by Andrew’s testimony. It’s glorious life lived. Always giving, serving and thinking about other people.
    He’s with the Lord now, there’s no more pain and sorrows. He can run and gym for as long as he wants and not feel tired. He has a new body now, young and strong. He’s indeed in a better place, in the arms of our Lord.
    He has left a legacy and inspired many to embrace life with heaven’s perspective.
    My prayers and thoughts goes out to u all.

    what a courageous young man! Thank you for sharing Andrew’s story. It is always difficult to know whether God is going to heal, well meaning Christians often make the sick feel worse by implying non-healing is due to lack of faith (of the sick), or sins of past generations, etc. Andrew showed us his 32 years was lived purposefully and meaningfully for God. It is not how long you live, but how you live.

      Andrew, you story touched my heart. And I believe it was God.
      At this point in my life, I am living idly. I had lost sense of passion for God and for the people. I compromised a lot. I became irresponsible of my privileges and relationships. I have grown cold towards the God who love me as much as his Son.
      I read your story and left me astounded and at the same time sorrowful.
      I realized how precious life is and how many people who is in deep pain needed a life in Christ.
      Thank you, Andrew. Thank you.

    Redeemed through His infinite mercy,

The testimony I just read well composed a very intelligent articulate young man but as he has said
    Our earth life is a speck of dust in infinite eternity we’re here our mortal being now and to die, we live and die universal destiny the Author of life and existence fairly stamped to all forms of life on earth.

    Thank you Andrew for being faithful despite the storm. It is indeed would be a lie, if a good life only means a life that is full of health, wealth and happiness. I learned that we will never know what plan God has for us. His definition of „good“ is also beyond our understanding. Thank you Andrew‘s family for bearing with the pain and stay faithful as well. I understand that, your pain is as big as Andrew‘s if not bigger. I‘m only 1 year older than Andrew, actually. The more days added into my life, the more I understand that life is a gift, and pain and suffering are part of it. I‘m grateful that we have Jesus as our role model, that even though He didn‘t do anything wrong, He was willing to be crucified to pay the price for our redemption. Andrew‘s story made me rethink on the purpose of life‘s and priorities. Each day is a gift, and I ought to use it wisely. God bless you and your family, Andrew. Rest in peace, brother.
