Christmas has always been a family affair for 18-year-old Megan Loy.
But the holiday takes on a special meaning this year for the Singaporean, who
suffered serious burns on up to 80 per cent of her body when a blaze broke out at the Colour Play Asia festival in Taipei on June 27.
“I now live life with no regrets. I feel like if I had died that day, my biggest regret would probably be not telling my family that I love them enough,” said Megan, who was flown to Singapore on June 30, and discharged from the Burns Centre at Singapore General Hospital (SGH) at the end of October.
Her burn wounds have now been reduced to less than 5 per cent of her body after nine skin grafts.
The family did away with exchanging Christmas gifts last year and donated to the underprivileged instead. Since Megan’s 15-year-old sister Lauren returned from Shanghai two weeks ago, they have been spending the holidays simply, in each other’s company.
