Anyone who has had the pleasure of knowing or meeting Frank Leung, knows that he's a humorous, generous and selfless individual of just 58 years.
In his spare time over the years, he has volunteered at the local orphanage in China donating food, supplies, contributing funds towards their education, as well as teaching the children some English and engaging in various activities. As part of a cultural exchange, he sponsored BBQ's, parties, & speech contests to encourage Chinese students to improve their English and introduce western culture and customs.
In January 2016, Frank suffered a cerebral infarction (ischemic stroke) on the left side of his brain and was hospitalized for several months. Due to the fact that he’s a Canadian living in China, his medical costs and treatments had to be paid entirely out of pocket. With the help of loving family and friends, we managed to cover these costs despite having accumulated debt and have been suffering from financial difficulties ever since. He seemed to be on the road to recovery and his health was improving with time.
Nevertheless, on Mother’s Day he suffered his 2nd ischemic stroke and is hospitalized again, however, this time it’s more serious. His brain tissue is swollen with cerebral spinal fluid (CSF) and the bleeding has occurred on the right hemisphere affecting his vision. The medical costs, treatments and CT scans are escalating daily, especially being a foreigner in China without any medical insurance. Unfortunately, we have exhausted all of our resources and it has been a financial burden on my daughter & I.
Regrettably, he is in no condition to travel back home to Canada to seek medical attention. The neurologist said it’s vital for Frank to get a brain angiogram as soon as possible. Our only option is a possible life-saving procedure to remove the clot in order to prevent another stroke. They neither have the expertise nor the equipment to carry out this procedure in the town where we reside. In order to have the angiogram and surgery we must travel to Guangzhou, which has a better hospital & more qualified neurologists.
Please help us cover his medical expenses, treatments and a possible life-saving procedure, as well as travel costs, accommodations and food. Any contributions would be greatly appreciated from the bottom of our hearts.
He still has so much to live for and would love to be able to see his 2 beautiful granddaughters which whom he’s never seen back in Vancouver someday.
