Urgent Fundraising – Loo Kok Choy (Kidney Transplant Medical Expenses)



"I've been on dialysis for 11 years, and now I finally have the opportunity for a kidney transplant. I want to seize this chance and return to a normal life!"

47-year-old Loo Kok Choy from Penang's Jelutong area has been on dialysis for 11 years, enduring various pains such as burst blood vessels at the catheter site and multiple surgeries for fistulas. Despite this, he has not given up, actively working to fulfill his responsibilities as a husband and father, raising three children with his wife.

Last year, doctors informed Loo Kok Choy that he was eligible for a kidney transplant. Though he did not hold much hope, he still wishes to strive for a life without dialysis, seeking the necessary medical expenses of RM 50,000.

11 years ago, Loo Kok Choy was still an information technology system technical support personnel. At that time, he suffered from high blood pressure and frequently experienced asthma and fatigue. When the company offered discounted health check-up coupons, he decided to undergo a health check-up. Unexpectedly, the blood test report showed that his kidney toxin index was high, and after detailed examinations, it was confirmed that his kidneys were failing, with only 10% kidney function remaining.

This shocking news plunged him into despair, and he felt hopeless about life. From then on, Loo Kok Choy embarked on the path of kidney dialysis. The social insurance covered the cost of his dialysis, but he had to pay RM60 for each injection.

Not long after, his company closed down, and he faced unemployment. However, he remained resilient. He worked as a taxi driver for several months, but later, due to the old condition of his car, he switched to working as a night security guard. He has maintained this routine of undergoing kidney dialysis three times a week to this day.

During this time, his wife considered donating her kidney to him, but considering their three young children, Loo Kok Choy rejected his wife's kind offer.

In November last year, doctors brought good news, informing him that he was eligible for a kidney transplant. When asked about his willingness to undergo the transplant, Loo Kok Choy admitted that he had been undergoing dialysis for 11 years and now the opportunity for a kidney transplant was right in front of him. He hoped to seize this chance, so he cooperated with various tests. Currently, his name is at the top of the waiting list, and once he receives the opportunity for organ transplantation, he will need to rush to Kuala Lumpur immediately.

After the kidney transplant, he will need six months of rest and will be unable to work. In addition, his wife will need to accompany him to the hospital and he will need to take anti-rejection medications. Their family is expected to face financial difficulties.

Loo Kok Choy receives social insurance assistance of RM2040 per month and currently works part-time as a night security guard at a warehouse. His wife, Chuah Xzu Nee (45 years old), is a kindergarten teacher. The couple has three children aged 13, 15, and 16, respectively, and their financial burden is considerable.

After a home visit assessment, One Hope Charity decided to raise the necessary funds for Loo Kok Choy. Family agreed to entrust the fundraising activities to the One Hope Charity and collect donations.
