The 13-year-old Kho Jia Yi has completed the preoperative examination. She was arranged to be admitted on September 1 for preparation and will undergo scoliosis correction surgery on September 2. We wish that Jia Yi's surgery will go smoothly, that she will straighten her body and regain confidence.
Jia Yi from Penang has congenital heart disease but has undergone heart repair surgery. Two years ago, her scoliosis turned from 45 degrees to 88 degrees, scaring her family. Her parents actively sought medical treatment and she needed scoliosis corrective surgery to avoid press on internal organs.
The needed RM60,000 surgery fee has been raised. The parent is very grateful for the public assistance and wishes Jia Yi's surgery a success.
