The hospital has arranged for Shannice's father to have a test on August 18. If all goes well, bone marrow will be extracted for her father, and then a transplant will be arranged for Shannice.
Shannice Ooi, a 10-year-old girl from Alor Setar, Kedah, went to the University of Malaya Hospital with her father the day before yesterday to prepare for a bone marrow transplant. After her father donated bone marrow, Shannice is expected to be observed for 6 to 8 weeks before returning to home.
With the medical expenses of RM88,000 already raised in XX hours, the parents are not only grateful for the assistance from the public, but also hope that Shannice can receive treatment smoothly and return to school as usual.
