"Mother is the only one I have, and as long as there is hope, I don't want to give up. But I'm truly powerless and need everyone's help... I have no other relatives, only my mother..."
78-year-old Chan Mooi from Puchong, Selangor, relies on her son for support. Her son is exceptionally devoted to taking care of her, but an unexpected stroke has left her with a crooked mouth and a weak body. In a state of panic, her son called an ambulance to rush her to the hospital.
Upon initial examination, the doctors found a blockage in her blood vessels, and she was referred to a specialized stroke treatment center for Mechanical Thrombectomy. However, the required cost is a staggering RM45,000, leaving her son in a helpless situation. As a result, they are seeking public assistance to cover the surgery expenses.
【Due to a fall that his mother had in the past, the son has been taking care of her since 2019. He has been exceptionally filial, and they have been relying on each other ever since】
Ten years ago, after Chan Mooi's husband passed away due to penile cancer, she and her 42-year-old son became dependent on each other. In 2019, Chan Mooi suffered a leg fracture after a fall, and her recovery did not go well. Since then, her son quit his job to take care of her, and they have been living frugally for many years.
At 78 years old, Chan Mooi's health has deteriorated significantly. She relies on a walker to move around and also suffers from dementia, gradually forgetting how to eat. Doctors have prescribed medication to slow the progression of her cognitive decline. Despite the challenges, her son continues to care for her without any complaints.
Her son mentioned that when his mother fell earlier, he was the only one taking care of her, shuttling between home and the hospital every day. After her discharge, he would help her with daily hygiene, prepare breakfast, cook meals, and then head out to work. He would return during lunchtime to ensure his mother had her meal and do the same for dinner, maintaining this routine every day.
On November 6th, around noon, after his mother had her meal as usual, the son suddenly noticed that her mouth was crooked, and her left side was paralyzed. Alarmed, he called for an ambulance and rushed her to the hospital. Initial examinations revealed a stroke, and she was referred to a stroke center for Mechanical Thrombectomy, a procedure that needed to be performed within a critical time frame.
The son, Wong Fatt Ming (42 years old), used to work as a lorry driver earning a salary of RM1,900. He resigned from his job to take care of his mother when her mobility declined. He has been working part-time as a grab driver, earning a meager income of over a thousand Ringgit per month, along with a RM500 welfare assistance. Their frugal lifestyle barely covers their living expenses, leaving them unable to afford the surgery costs.
He has an elder brother, who is 47 years old. After their father's death ten years ago, his elder brother has been out of contact, and the current situation is unknown.
After a thorough review, One Hope Charity has decided to assist in raising the necessary medical expenses. The family has entrusted all fundraising activities to the One Hope Charity and authorized them to collect the donations.
