By donating, you can give comfort to the 52 year old in her daily struggles
To be able to live healthily is something that is often taken for granted. Yet, staying alive remains a dream to Vivian, who was diagnosed with end stage cervical cancer. Since her diagnosis in 2017, the 52-year-old who was working in the hotel industry stopped work to receive treatment and is currently still on oral chemotherapy, with a prognosis of less than six months.
Being handed her life sentence has struck Vivian extremely hard, especially when the healthy single individual who has no next of kin now needs help in all aspects of her life – from her toileting needs, to feeding and dressing herself to moving around in her flat where she is staying alone, now that she is wheelchair-bound and getting weaker by day. With the cancer spreading to her lungs, liver and bones, Vivian’s bilateral lower limbs are already swollen and she is no longer able to walk. Over the years, Vivian’s savings is now depleting and she needs our help urgently to support the fees for hiring a helper for her day to day caregiving for the next six months.
Ray of Hope is raising $6,560 to assist Vivian with the following:
- Fees for hiring of caregiver (MOM processing, insurance, embassy processing documents etc): $1,880
- Caregiver payment and salary (first 3 months before Home Care Grant assistance kicks in): $1,000/month
- Caregiver payment and salary (4th month onwards) : $560/month
Ray of Hope has cited the medical documents provided by the client. Funds raised will be paid to the relevant agencies directly.
