Urgent Fundraising – Lee Ah Chan (Stroke)



It’s an urgent case that needs your attention and help!

Lee Ah Chan, a father in his 60s, has a strong personality. He chose to live alone and not let his children know about his condition even when he was not well. He doesn’t want to trouble his children and make them worry. Recently, one of his daughters noticed that her father was slurring his speech, couldn’t stand steadily and couldn’t walk. The daughter brought him for acupuncture, but his condition remained, so she forced her father to see a doctor. A test showed that he suffered from a stroke.

Ah Chan was confirmed to have a cerebral vascular blockage. He urgently needed a mechanical thrombectomy before he became permanently paralysed or even lost his life. The medical expenses cost RM60,000. His daughters managed to borrow RM20,000 from their relatives and friends. They also plead with the public to help their father with the shortfall of RM40,000.

【Ah Chan suffered from breathing difficulty about a month ago, and he rode a motorcycle to seek medical treatment alone. At that time, the doctor only prescribed some sublingual medications, and the doctor discharged him after three to four days】

Ah Chan was a hardworking lorry driver who transported oil palm fruits. Although he has passed the retirement age, he still insists on self-reliance. He started working at a construction site to move goods a few days ago to support himself financially.

Ah Chan suffers from high blood pressure. He went to the hospital alone to seek medical treatment due to breathing difficulty. However, the doctor only prescribed him some medications at that time.

His temper suddenly changed last week. He became irritable and incoherent. His 38-year-old eldest daughter returned from Kuala Lumpur to Parit Buntar, Perak, to visit him and discover the changes. She noticed that her father was behaving strangely, and his eyes were dull. The family felt that something was wrong and tried to persuade him to seek medical treatment but to no avail.

Soon, he began slurring his speech, so his daughter took him for acupuncture. Unfortunately, his situation did not improve. When Ah Chan could not even stand steadily and could not walk, his family quickly sent him to the hospital. He was diagnosed with a stroke. He was then referred to a specialist hospital for a mechanical thrombectomy to remove the blood clot in his brain.

Ah Chan is a good father. He took the responsibility of bringing up his children. Ah Chan has been living alone at his ancestral house in Parit Buntar, Perak since his wife passed away due to illness a few days ago. He has two daughters – his 38-year-old daughter works as a shop assistant in Kuala Lumpur with a monthly salary of RM3,000, and his 36-year-old younger daughter is married. She is a housewife who cares for two children, seven and five.

The daughters suspected that their father had suffered a stroke due to overburden. When they found out that something was wrong with their father, they were at a loss. When they knew their father needed emergency surgery, they were even more worried as they could not afford the subtantial surgical expenses. Hence, they approached One Hope Charity for help.

Due to the emergency nature of this case, One Hope Charity reviewed the case in the shortest possible time and decided to assist the patient with the shortfall of RM40,000. The patient and his family agreed to fully authorise One Hope Charity to take charge of the fundraising and collect donations from the public on their behalf.
