Help Him

Feel like you could make a difference in someone's life?

Are you generous enough to make a little donation to help save a life?

All pump up to do something good?

Read on... and find out how...

An entry from my friend's blog: 

"When everyone is working harder to earn more during this global economic down time, someone has been fighting, just to live.

About a year or two ago, my mum told me about a cousin of mine being diagnosed with a rare cancer, Mesenchymal Chondrosarcoma. Well, he is actually the son of my mother’s cousin. Mum updated us with his condition from time to time. Things got worse during the recent few months. The cancer struck back and he lost his right eye during a recent operation.

And that’s not the end of it. To undergo proton therapy as suggested by his doctors, he has to go to either China, Korea, or Japan as these are the only few countries equipped with this medical technology. The total cost of medical expenses goes up to RM120,000.

So the thing is, this is not a small amount of money. He has been on the newspaper appealing to the public for donation. You may read the articles here and here for more info.

There are many ways to help. If you are reading and would like to make a donation, please contact Datuk Michael Chong at 03-21618044, as shown in the above articles for donation. If you would like to write an entry in your blog, please also make sure to direct your readers to Datuk Michael Chong for donation. Please do not use my cousin’s condition to make fraud donation. If you are not sure, feel free to write to me.

Feel free to use the social bookmarking icons below to share this with others, or email this to your friends. Please help to spread this, and help my cousin, Kavern!"

I wish I can do something, make a donation or maybe organise a fundraiser event or something to help this cancer patient who deserve more in life... but since i am in KL, and I am on the busiest weeks of the semester, there's nothing much i can do. So i decide to blog about it and hopefully, this little humble blog of mine could reach out to good, kind soul out there as many as possible.

You can help to change his life!
