I am raising money for myself. I have diagnosed Multiple Myeloma since May 2017 , there is currently no cure for multiple myeloma , but use medicines to control the cancer for life and the goals of treatment are to slow the disease's progression , manage pain , delay relapse and hope to increase my life.
The entire medical drug subsidy system in Hong Kong has been determined that those patients （cancer and rare diseases）are not cost-effective , therefore , cancer patients face an expensive and long drug bills
Under the unqualified application for Hong Kong Medical fund , some patients have given up their treatment. But there is still a group that wants to survive, and can't they do anything for themselves??
This is my blog: https://vinahk.com
Here are some of my treatment history, what is multiple myeloma , multiple myeloma treatment , how to apply for drugs support in Hong Kong , and the symptoms of Multiple Myeloma are so popular （back pain , low blood counts , pneumonia , weakness）that is frequently initially misdiagnose , so I hope that you will not ignore this disease.
My medical history profile:
I was diagnosed Multiple myeloma in May 2017. Due to unstable condition, my treatment took almost one year . I had just completed bone marrow transplantation in June 2018 （at Hong Kong Princess Margaret Hospital ）. The doctor said that I need to take drug for life to delay relapses. At the first two-year consolidation period , Velcade （belly needle） is injected every two weeks . A total of 52 needles （about US$65,000/ HK$520,000 ） are required.
At the beginning of the treatment , I applied for funding from the Hong Kong Samaritan Fund. However , due to changes in the condition , need to use three anti-cancer drug to control the disease at the treatment
The fund can only apply for one type of drug subsidy at the same time. During the illness , most of the savings had been spent on medicines and living needs. Now I have to face a monthly drug expense of（US$2,500 / HK$20,000 ）during this 2 years consolidation period.
I had applied for the first online crowdfunding in Hong Kong. I waited for one and a half months from the application to the submission of the asset documents. And finally rejected my application with the whatsapp notice （no reason for rejection）
Afterwards , I applied to the China online crowdfunding platform. After several months , the case was not approved at the end. The reason for the unsuccessful reason is that I am a Hong Kong citizen .
In the journey of finding medicines support , I was invited by Cancerinformation.com to shoot a series of appeals to the public for the attention of the blood cancer - Multiple Myeloma.
