"Thank you all for your donations and encouragement. After my surgery and recovery, I will work diligently to save money and further my education. In the future, to the best of my ability, I will definitely give back to society."
With the blessings and support of kind-hearted individuals, the necessary surgical expenses for Puah Chiaw Lee were successfully raised within 3 hours! She and her parents are deeply grateful to people from all walks of life for lending a helping hand when they needed it most, making them feel truly heartened.
Nineteen-year-old Puah Chiaw Lee has been living with an atrial septal defect (ASD), a congenital heart condition, since childhood. It didn't significantly affect her growing up until a medical checkup for a job application revealed her heart's critical condition. Not only was the hole in her heart continuing to enlarge, but her lungs had also begun to fill with blood, causing breathing difficulties and affecting lung function. She frequently experienced chest pains while working and had to take immediate breaks to recover.
With the surgical expenses successfully raised, she will be admitted to the hospital promptly to undergo an ASD closure procedure using a device called the Amplatzer. One Hope Charity extends gratitude to the generous individuals from all walks of life who stepped up to support Poon Chiew Lee during this critical time for her health and hopes that everyone will continue to keep her in their thoughts and prayers for her upcoming surgery and recovery.
