Background

Hi everyone, my name is Emma Tosh and here's a brief timeline on how my dad's cancer started.

My dad was in Scotland, visiting his family, when a growth on the back of the right ear was Diagnosed as a malignant cancer in May 2021. This was operated on twice and eventually pronounced clear in September of the same year. During the following months repeated examinations confirmed the outcome. He was then unable to return to Malaysia due to the outbreak of Coronavirus. When travel restrictions were relaxed later in 2021, to allow foreign travel and the governments had set the criteria for entry, dad was fortunate enough to get permission to enter Malaysia and re-join the family here in Kuala Lumpur. Unfortunately, he was unable to arrange medical insurance due to his age and the bout of cancer he suffered earlier in the year.

In early April 2022, a small lump formed on the neck below the right ear and was treated with antibiotics at the local clinic. This treatment initially improved the situation, but by the end of the month the growth was back and had become painful. Following an ultrasound examination, he was informed that he would require to see a specialist and was recommended to HUKM, a university hospital, which was about 25 minutes from the house.

My dad was examined by an ENT (Ear, Nose & Throat) specialist and was once again given an antibiotic. This did not improve the situation and the lump grew to a significant size. My dad was then referred to a cancer specialist who carried out further examinations and along with an ultrasound assisted biopsy, the lump was confirmed as a malignant carcinoma of the neck covering several nodes and nerves. The tests also revealed that the tumour was in stage 3 and requires surgery quickly. To complicate matters my father is a diabetic and requires close monitoring of his blood sugar and this will increase the chance of complications during and after the surgery.

Future timeline

July – Full body detailed CT scan to define parameters for the operation.

July/August - Operation

August – Recovery phase

August/September Radio Therapy

October – review of the case to clarify if clear or further treatment is required

Financial requirements

As my father has no medical insurance all the cost to date, has been borne by both my mother and father thus draining what savings they had. The aim is to raise in the region of RM 100,000 to cover the upcoming cost of the operation and further multiple CT scans, X-Rays, doctors’ costs and hospital fees, medications along with daily glucose testing.

We hope that this way we could raise enough money to prevent the cancer from spreading and help my dad recover. We as a family are trying our best to help my dad survive for many years to come and we would like to give our deep appreciation for any help that you can give. We can’t thank you enough for your help.

Information on my dad’s progress will be updated from time to time. A huge thank you for your support in sharing and donating to his fundraising campaign. Would it be too much for me to ask for a small favour to continue sharing this campaign with your friends and family so that we could reach the target amount? My family and I hope you could share this on your social media platforms for us.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Thank you,

Emma Tosh.
