Kathleen Saw is our bubbly classmate since elementary days at Sacred Heart School for girls. She never fails to make people laugh, laugh out so hard that you would end up crying. That's our Kathleen.
Just recently, we received the news that Kathleen is going through her battle with the BIG C. Cancer. The financial burden she is now facing should be the least of her worries as she is going through her chemotherapy treatments. We knock at your kind hearts to please donate any amount you can to help them go through these rough times with your financial aid..
This is her story.. (copied from Danny Ang's GoFUNDme page for Kathleen)
"One February afternoon, she asked to leave early to see a doctor because she felt very dizzy… almost at the point of fainting. At the urgent care clinic it was determined that her red blood cell count was very low and she needed immediate transfusion. Without latter the doctor said she could have died. Her monthly period was abnormally heavy and painful. This was her first hospital visit and it will not be her last.
She was scheduled for more checks and the doctors saw an abnormal growth in her uterus. Due to its size and shape it was definitely cancerous and the doctors recommended immediate complete hysterectomy. She underwent surgery at Sutter Health (El Camino Hospital) in Mountain View CA under the care of Dr. Ming-Teh Dwight Chen. She was single and still young but she faced the consequence with deep faith.
Pathology results came painstakingly slow. It was a very rare and aggressive form of cancer. Early this week, she was resting at home when she coughed blood. She immediately called her doctor and was rushed to the emergency room. She has contracted Pneumonia and her creatinine level was very high. She has to have stents and drain for her kidneys. There is now a new tumor growing aggressively in her urethra. She would have to undergo a series of chemotherapy. The first one is scheduled this week. That is if she gets better with the anti-biotics she is taking for her Pneumonia and if she will be strong enough for the dose of chemo.
We are all praying for her quick and full recovery. Treatments are a financial drain and would thus kindly request for your unselfish support. She has not been able to work for more than 2 months now.
Thank you very much!
God Bless you a hundred fold for your generosity….
Please help us help Kathleen and Abi.. May God bless you all.
