"You are always been there for me even at my worst. Now it is time for me to show you that no matter what happens, I will always be there side by side fighting with you"
Dear beloved friends, it is one of those time where I get to do the same for my girlfriend, April - who has always been there for me, saving me from drowning with negative thoughts and.
April is a strong woman. At a very young age of 32, April has always been a good mother to her two beautiful daughters. But things has gone badly since the Covid pandemic hit the city of Hochiminh. Both me and April have lost our jobs since then, struggling to survive since the hard lockdown took place on April, 2021.
When we are still naive to hope for a better day to come, a bad new came in place. April's father was diagnosed with prostate cancer with bone metastasis on 21st April, 2021. She was in shock and certainly not prepared for what's to come.
Her father is a wonderful husband and father. My heart is broken to pieces everytime I see her crying over my shoulders because she sees no hope to get any more money to support her father. Not to mention we are still trying to find a job while still taking care of two beautiful angels.
As of now, the cancer is spread severely, her father is now hospitalized at a local hospital in Hochiminh city. After the first immunotherapy session two month ago, it is sadly that he is now too weak to receive any sorts of treatment.
The total costs up until now since he was hospitalized on May, 2021 is roughly 460 million Vietnam dong (nearly 22,000 USD).
To be honest, that was a huge amount of money for her family. In order to afford this, we had to sell everything we have in our house. It wasn't enough. I even looked out for a loan in 'the black market' even though I know for a fact that it wasn't a good idea. But this is for April and her family, and I am always ready to do everything for her.
The rest of the estimated medical costs are yet to be determined. Sadly, any additional cost now will come to impact us significantly. Therefore, she needs our helps and supports.
Every penny counts. All your donates will go directly to her father medical costs and on-going treatments and/or anything else she and her family need to survive during this hard time.
I, on behalf of April and her family, thank you wholeheartedly for reading this and for you support. Please help if you can and please forward this message to those who can help.
I will keep you updated on this page. For more information, please feel free to contact me at [email protected] Her English was not good but she always wants to talk to everyone.
You are truly making a big difference to her and her family today. Thank you so much.
April & Jay
