A cancer-stricken woman’s dying wish to meet her two children in India was fulfilled by a Singapore medical team that pulled out all the stops and arranged her travel from a hospital here to Tiruchirappalli at the height of the pandemic, according to a media report on Monday.

Ramamoorthy Rajeswari, a Singapore permanent resident suffering from throat cancer, wanted to meet her two children — aged 12 and nine — who were dispatched to their home near Tiruchirappalli in January 2019 to be taken care by their relatives after her cancer progressed, Channel News Asia reported.
