I’m spreading the word, hopefully one (or more) of you good people can help. This is from Davie’s:
An 8 year old girl, Ng Yee Lin is currently admitted at UKM Medical Centre. She was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukimia (ALL) in June 2009. She was started on chemotherapy (UK ALL 97-Regimen A). After 2 weeks of started the chemotherapy, she developed recurrent fever and discovered that she developed disseminated fungal infection ( due to her body’s low immunity ). Her chemotherapy was withheld and she was started on anti-fungal treatment.Unfortunately, anti-fungal treatment is required for prolonged time ( 2-3months duration , depending on patient’s response ) and it is very costly ( as it is not subsidized by the hospital )
The description above is actually copied from Doctor’s letter.
Basically she needs help to get the supply of medication.
Details of her medication:
Name of medication : Intravenous Caspofungin
Quantity : 25 bottles
Cost : RM22,950.00
With an adequate anti-fungal treatment, most patients will recover and can continue with their chemotherapy.
Her dad is working as technician, and her mom had to stop work to take care of her. They had spend more than RM20k for the past 2 months. Now, they cannot afford to pay for the medication.
We are trying our best to get help from various people/organization. Now, as I am composing this note, this girl has medicine for 4 days ( treatment with this expensive medication started today ).By Monday, there is still no allocation for the medication. She needs another 26 days of supply.
A big fan of Naruto, she smiles a lot, but hardly talk. But, there was a day, she looked at me and said ” Terima kasih kakak”
Those who would like to help, please contact me and I will direct you to the doctor in charge.
May Allah bless you all..
