She's looking for help.

I know her. She's one of our senior.

This is the repost from keanpinglim's blog
that taken from JitsinExpress


I was totally taken aback when I read the news about Yen Kee, one of the top students in Jit Sin who scored 11A's in her SPM. She was awarded scholarships to study Medicine in overseas university by Public Service Department after receiving her SPM results, but her dream is so near, yet so far.Unfortunately, she was diagnosed with Leukemia one year ago, forcing her to relinquish her the golden opportunity to becoming a doctor. She has been undergoing chemotherapy for almost a year and her health conditions improved along with the treatments.However, its a short-lived joy as her health is deteriorating and cancer is again threatening her life.
Her father, a small construction contractor has almost used up all his lifetime savings to save her daughter, hoping that chemotherapy would bring back Yen Kee a normal life. Till now, the family has already spent more than RM70,000 to ensure Yen Kee can receive proper treatments.Now with her conditions worsened, they have no choice but let Yen Kee undergo bone marrow transplant that would cost them more than RM200,000; which is the only hope to save this young life according to the doctors.
The operation will take place at Ampang Hospital once the bone marrow arrives in Malaysia.Yen Kee's family is now facing financial difficulties to support this costly yet life-saving bone marrow transplant. They have no choice but to seek for alternative financial support, hoping that donations collected can lighten the enormous burden on the whole family right now.
I beg all of you , Please, please help Yen Kee. No matter how much you can donate, every single penny that goes into her donation fund will help Yen Kee, the once smart, cheerful and friendly girl, to survive this obstacle!To donate, please hand in your cheque/cash at any of the Guang Ming Daily office. Remember to state her full name , "Yeoh Yen Kee" as the receipient of the donations made.
Get well soon my friend. God is with you, always!

Below is the original news report from Guang Ming Daily:
優異生患血癌需20萬移植骨髓
(大山腳訊)大馬教育文憑11A優異生楊顏琦,因患上血癌而被迫放棄到捷克就讀醫學系。她在接受治療1年的化療後情況有好轉,原以為可以當醫生圓夢,詎料血癌再度復發,她目前急需20萬令吉進行骨髓移植手術。
楊顏琦(19歲)於去年5月證實患上血癌,在今年康復的她,萬萬沒想到自己在重獲健康短短兩週後,再度被癌魔纏上。
楊顏琦在家中排行第三,有一對兄姐及一個妹妹。父親楊亞華(62歲)雖然是一名建築承包商,為了女兒的病,他在過去一年半幾乎處於停工狀態。
儲蓄幾近耗盡
楊顏琦先前在檳城醫院共花了約7至8萬令吉醫藥費,加上生活費及兄弟姐妹的求學費用,楊家已差不多耗盡儲蓄。
她病發後,醫生表示化療已無法壓制癌細胞,必須盡快進行骨髓移植手術。由於馬來西亞、新加坡及台灣都找不到適合她的骨髓,醫生只能往美國尋找,是本地比較罕見的例子。雖然已經找到骨髓,運輸費及骨髓費價格不菲,大約需要9萬美金(約31萬3200令吉),骨髓一旦抵馬,她即在安邦醫院進行手術。
這次的醫藥費估計需要20萬左右,對楊家來說是個重擔。他們希望社會熱心人士慷慨解囊,助楊顏琦渡過難關。
出國讀醫夢碎
楊顏琦原本獲得公共服務局獎學金資助,到捷克就讀醫學系,卻因為患癌而打碎了出國夢。她如今在日新國中就讀中六,所獲得的獎學金則獲準延遲一年,但日後只可以在馬來西亞繼續醫學課程。
開朗的楊顏琦表示,她在患病初期非常難過,一度十分執著,終日以淚洗臉。在家人及朋友的鼓勵下,她漸漸學會以平常心看待,並感恩現在擁有的一切。
她指出,在患病期間目睹許多血癌病人離世,令她感慨萬分。她語帶哽咽地說,希望本身康復後可以繼續深造當醫生,將來幫助那些和她一樣遭遇的人。
有意捐助楊顏琦的熱心人士,可把義款交到光明日報辦事處,以轉交《光明公益金》處理。支票背面請註明捐助楊顏琦。

Honestly i was quite shocked when i knew that she's in form 6(but i never met her before? )
Reminds me that i saw her middle of the year 2008 at our school Gate 5.
She was wearing mask and bandana. That i guess she was having treatment for the ailment.
She still able to walk fast and talk and look fine, yet not so good though.
Couldn't imagine how ill she is now.
She's looking for help.
We can help. Pass this message around.
没有钱,至少还有心。
