Urgent Fundraising – Gooi Pei San (Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia)



"The treatment process was extremely difficult, and I considered discontinuing treatment, but I want to live for my mother and myself!"

22-year-old Gooi Pei San had just completed her studies three years prior and was about to enter society. She fainted unexpectedly due to shortness of breath and general exhaustion. Her family then took her to the doctor for checking. Her blood cells were found to be abnormal in the blood test results, and she was referred to a government hospital for further examination. She was eventually diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukaemia.

Gooi Pei San from Nibong Tebal has undergone radiotherapy and chemotherapy, and now her cancer cells have spread. The doctor recommends bone marrow transplantation. 50-year-old mother Kee Mooi Sim is willing to donate bone marrow to save her daughter.

【Pei San suffered from shortness of breath and fainted at the beginning of her illness. Her family mistakenly thought it was a sequela of pneumonia. After she fainted for the third time at the bank and was sent to the hospital, she was diagnosed with cancer.】

Gooi Pei San, who was 19 at the time, fainted twice at home with a bloated stomach at the end of 2020, mistaking it for the sequelae of Covid.

She was taken to the hospital after fainting in the bank. The blood test results showed abnormal blood, so she was referred to the  hospital, where she was discovered to be anaemic and required a blood transfusion. Then it was determined that she had acute lymphoblastic leukaemia.

Gooi Pei San was transferred to a private hospital for treatment because she had insurance. She started the electrotherapy and chemotherapy in 2021. She experienced a variety of side effects after nearly two years of chemotherapy treatment, including hair loss, vomiting, diarrhoea, fever, and so on. She must be monitored every three months after finishing the treatment.

She got a headache unexpectedly in March of this year. She discovered that the cancer cells had spread to the brain during the follow-up examination. She is now in need of electrotherapy. Finally, the doctor suggested that a bone marrow transplant be performed. However, only her mother's bone marrow is transplantable. Previously, all of Ni Peishan's medical expenses were covered by insurance, and she had to pay before she could receive compensation. The cost of her mother donating bone marrow to save her daughter was not covered by insurance.

Father Gooi Han Khoon (50 years old) is an operation manager at a scrap iron recycling plant. His current monthly salary is around RM5,700. Not only does he have to cover family expenses, but he also has to cover his elderly mother's monthly medical expenses of RM800. Mother Kee Mooi Sim (50 years old) is a housewife. They have a pair of children. The eldest son is 27 years old and works as a construction worker in Australia.

Pei San still needs to live in Kuala Lumpur for at least 4 months after the bone marrow transplant, so the burden is doubled. The family members were unable to cover the donor's medical expenses as well as the expenses in Kuala Lumpur.

After reviewing the case, One Hope Charity decided to assist Gooi Pei San in raising the medical expenses he needed. Her family agreed to fully authorise One Hope Charity to take charge of the fundraising and collect donations from the well-wishers on their behalf.
