It has been 11 years since Wan Ting (also known as Henny) began her journey with chronic pain. She has gone through multiple surgeries in the past 5 years. She has had 2 spinal cord stimulator device implanted at her spine and battery at the hip.

Living on the bed battling with constant back and ankle pain for many years, she describes the lost of freedom in mobility and limited function to sit and walk like a life in a coffin. A situation where perhaps only bedridden person can understand, being in horizontal position day and night. Her bedroom window is her outside world.

She lives with a rare, disabling and life long condition called complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) which affect her lower limbs. It is the most painful condition recorded in medical history which affects the sensory and motoric function of the limbs and cause severe pain, weakness and lost of normal function. Her both feet and ankles has struggled with several chronic injuries that don't heal. On top of that, many years of sitting on the wheelchair has worsen the damaged disc of her lumbar spine. This causes lock in spasm pain which can last for days and weeks and months. Thus, the wheelchair which has been her main mobility aid has become an impossible option for her to function daily.

Despite of many surgeries and treatments, her condition continues to deteriorate throughout the years. She lives on the bed in isolation as she is unable to sit due to severe back pain and go out only for doctor appointment and physiotherapy. Participating in activities outside the house has become mostly impossible unless there is a place for her to lie down constantly. Her doctors have exhausted all treatment options available in Singapore to manage her complex and rare condition with no positive outcome and encourage her to seek treatment in the US (Hanger clinic) in hope that she will regain back her mobility to walk with Exosym prosthetic. It is the only customed made hybrid prosthetic that can be fitted into patient's leg without going through amputation.

Exosym prosthetic is available only in Hanger Clinic, Gig Harbor, US. Many patients with complex lower limbs condition like Wan Ting(Henny) has been successfully helped with this walking device to alleviate their lower limb pain and able to lead a functional life, to stand, walk and be more active. Henny has been accepted as patient in Hanger Clinic, US after they reviewed her medical history and her treatment will start on July 11th. The Prosthetist will custom build this device to fit her lower limbs. The cost of this device starts from 18000USD onwards per pair. Additional charge is required should she needs a knee section or additional device depending on her lower limbs condition after the evaluation. She has to stay in the US after the fitting to go through functional training in using this prosthetic before she can fly back to Singapore and continue her physical therapy for at least 18 months to learn a proper technique to walk again with this device. All these add a big amount of financial expenses on top of the cost for the prosthetic and treatment.


Despite living with a life long constant chronic pain with limited mobility for more than a decade, Wan Ting(Henny) does not give up life. There is finally a light of hope after 11 years of suffering alone in pain. She does not want to suffer alone in silence anymore. With all humility, she takes a leap of faith by sharing the truth on her medical condition and asking for help because she is determined to continue living life instead of giving up. Wan Ting(Henny) is humbly asking for support and generous contribution from all of you in her long journey to stand and walk again. Please also help to share this fundraising page to your friends and family so that the total amount needed for her treatment can be reached soon and she can start her treatment soon.

Wan Ting(Henny) is sincerely thankful for any kind of help and contribution from all of you, that she is not alone in fighting to walk and live again. There is no donation amount that is too small because every contribution will open an opportunity for her future to continue living life, not in the bed and wheelchair anymore, but a life with freedom of mobility, with the help from all of you and technology.
