Mary Jean (MJ) is an amazing lady who has been in our lives for the last three years as our live in helper, here in Singapore.
Why is she amazing? She has dedicated her life to giving her children opportunities in life. Something that a lot of women in Asia are doing on a daily basis.
Why is that different to any other mother? MJ lives and works away from her family and sends all her hard earned cash home to her children for their education.These women go years without seeing their children to give them an education they were not able to afford themselves. - Hopefully stopping the poverty cycle.
MJ was in control of this up until this week.
September 2016 - MJ has been diagnosed with Neuroendocrine Carcinoma (a form of cervical cancer)
Sadly the health insurance will not cover all the treatment AND due to the nature of the cancer MJ will need to give up work and so will not have any income.
We are and will be doing everything we can, but we need more funds to give her that opportunity of reducing the stress that she is already going through.
Her only one ask is that she can get the children through education (she is not even asking for money for treatment).
Our ask is that we raise enough funds so that she does not have to choose between treatment for herself and education for her children.
Every little helps - do please join us in helping MJ as much as we can.
For all you ladies out there - Don't hold off getting your pap smears done. Yes they are intrusive and uncomfortable, but they are an early indicator of cancer and the sooner it is found the greater chance of survival you will have - BOOK IT NOW.
For all your men out there - NAG the women in your lives to get their pap smear done and keep nagging.
Thank you in advance for anything you can spare.
