Hi everyone, we're raising funds to pay for our daddy, Tan Chor Boon's extensive medical costs for his chemotherapy and medications for Advanced Stage 4 Pancreatic Cancer with Liver Metastasis. His cancer has also led to several complications like two pulmonary embolisms and now a very extensive life-threatening deep vein thrombosis of his left leg (5 blood clots), if dislodged can cause a heart attack or stroke at any time.

My daddy had always been devoted to his work. His work requires him to clock in extremely long hours. The only time we ever get to see and talk to him are the insane hours at 3am and 4am, if we happen to be awake, or the extremely early hours right before he leaves for work at 7:00am.

We know he does this for our sake. He works so hard to support the family, unfortunately, to the detriment of his own health. There was not a single night we would not worry about his health. The stress, the odd mealtimes and the lack of sleep could never be good for anyone.

It was on 3 October 2020, our worries had been realised. My daddy, much to our distraught, was diagnosed with Advanced Stage 4 Pancreatic Cancer which has spread to his liver and resulted in a pulmonary embolism (blood clot in the veins of the lung). First it was my mummy, Marie Cho who was diagnosed with Triple Negative Breast Cancer 4 years ago and now my daddy with this deadly pancreatic cancer. No one could have imagined it...

My daddy had always been the life of the party. He's one of the first people anywhere to greet anyone with a cheery "Hello!"

He has always been so jovial, cheerful, bubbly, extremely loving and caring despite his incredibly burdensome work life. Seeing our daddy's condition degenerate so suddenly has been extremely painful and disheartening for us... to see someone go from being so happy and cheery to depressed and so sombre…

Just as we thought he could finally rest, to be free of worry, as he’s close to retiring, another crushing emotional and financial load had been dropped right onto him just before his 60th birthday. The hospital estimates that the chemotherapy, medications and treatment for his life-threatening complications will cost us around RM450,000 a year.

For so so many years, he has never been able to rest. The COVID19 pandemic this year has already robbed him of the pride and joys of witnessing both my little brother's graduation and mine too, and I'm afraid now this cancer is slowly robbing him of his life.

Our daddy has sacrificed so much to give us the best and all we wish for now is to let him have the best care, rest and comfort that he needs and deserves. So, we plead for your kind, compassionate and generous help in my daddy’s toughest journey in battling this deadly cancer. We wish to express our deepest and sincerest gratitude and appreciation towards all of your kind contributions towards my daddy's on-going medical needs.
