Urgent Fundraising – Lee Chun Nian (Scoliosis)



Modern people to some extent may have varying degrees of spinal curvature issues, but for some, it remains stable while for others, it tends to worsen over time, even leading to compression of internal organs, affecting breathing, and daily activities. Lee Chun Nian from Johor is one such patient suffering from severe scoliosis.

She was discovered to have a spinal curvature issue during her adolescence when her family noticed her right shoulder blade protruding. They consulted a traditional Chinese medicine practitioner, who indicated a possibility of recurrence even after massage therapy. After about six months of traditional Chinese medicine treatment and one attempt at chiropractic adjustment, her condition did not improve, prompting her to discontinue treatment.

Within just five years, Lee Chun Nian's spinal problem worsened, experiencing occasional back pain and discomfort while walking or lying down, and even feeling breathless. Now at 22 years old, her spinal curvature has become more pronounced, leading her to seek formal medical consultation upon the recommendation of friends and family.

【The parents and siblings have pooled their resources together but still cannot afford the full cost of the surgery】

The examination results revealed that Lee Chun Nian's right thoracic vertebra was protruding, and X-rays showed that she had severe thoracolumbar scoliosis of up to 47°. Considering her physical condition, the hospital has scheduled her for corrective and spinal fusion surgery on March 22.

Currently unemployed, she previously worked as a customer service representative at a company in Johor, earning a monthly salary of about RM 1700. She lives with her parents and three siblings in their ancestral home. Her father, Lee Seng Kee (59 years old), works in a factory, while her mother, Loh Mui Choo (53 years old), is a housewife. Her siblings are also employed and help contribute to the family's expenses, including car loans, household bills, and utilities. However, despite their efforts to raise funds for their youngest daughter, they still could not gather enough money for her necessary surgery.

Upon referral, Lee Chun Nian decided to submit an application to One Hope Charity. After a home visit and assessment, One Hope Charity decided to assist her in raising the remaining RM 30,000 needed for her surgery to address her spinal issues and restore her to normal life.

Lee Chun Nian and her family have agreed to entrust the fundraising activities to One Hope Charity, who will also handle the collection of donations. For any inquiries, please contact our hotline at 04-539 9212, 016-4192 192, 019-2322 192, 018-911 4192.
