Lai Yong Jiun, a 39-year-old man from Bukit Mertajam, Penang, was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukaemia (AML). Following treatment, the doctor recommended bone marrow transplantation, but he would need to locate bone marrow through overseas bone marrow banks.
The hospital has now successfully matched three groups of bone marrow and found a suitable marrow donor from Thailand. The date of the transplant is expected to be set after the Chinese New Year. During this time, he must visit the hospital every six weeks for chemotherapy to prevent the spread of cancer cells. He will experience side effects such as fever, hair loss, and stomach wind during the chemotherapy.
Lai Yong jiun's life has become difficult to manage since he has been unable to work for more than a year, leaving him with no income. He has used up all of his life savings and even tried a number of different strategies, but he is still unable to cover his living expenses. Despite this, he and his wife are still grateful for the support from the general public for their medical expenses and expenses during bone marrow transplantation.
With the RM200,000 required by Lai Yong Jiun fully raised, One Hope Charity will stop fundraising from now on. At the same time, we are also grateful to the kind-hearted people for their help. It is hoped that Lai Yong Jiun will be able to accompany his two children as they grow up together after he recovers and regains his family's happiness.
