View Full Version : Jennifer Needs Help...

06-12-2005, 01:28 AM

My friend Chan Yat Hee spoke to me last Thursday night to appeal for assistance for his friend who is in need of financial assistance. I told him to send me more details so that I could post it here for the generous people of USJ.COM to peruse and support. I have not made any check on this case since Chan is a personal friend of the appelants Jennifer and her hubby Michael Gilbert Chan. Do help if you can spare that extra $$. I am sure Jennifer and Michael will appreciate our support. Lets show them how caring the folks at USJ.COM can be.

Thank you and Regards,
Patrick Tan

EMAIL FROM MY FRIEND CHAN (chanyathee@gmail.com) reads:

I foward herewith the below email sent to me. As I have said Jennifer is a very dear friend. She is in her late twenty. Her husband is Michael Gilbert Chan. This couple has a son aged about 6.

Jennifer was first diagonsed with cancer of the brain. She had about 2-3
operations to remover the tumour cancer cells. A few months later a scan
showed that the cancer has spread to the neck. Lately it has spread to the
fringes of the lungs and the liver.

In view of this, she has decided to undergo treatment by the latest
chemotheraphy drug. The treatment costs $18K a month.

Both Jennifer and Michael has exhausted their savings and is now appealing
to kind and charitable souls to financial donations, however small the sum
to pay for Jennier's treatment.

I pray that you will circulate this email to kind souls who would like to

God bless you and those donating.


Hi Everyone

Thank you so much for your prayers. Yesterday was not a good day. To start
off, it was Monday, so blue. Tracffic was bad, service - non-existent and
most things malfunctioned at the hospital! I was there from 10am and left
only at 5pm, with a lunch break from 12.20 -2.30.

The results from my mri of the neck showed that the tumor has increased in
size which explains the lost of strength and numbness in my hands and
intense pain* . Looks like the chinese herbs is not working fast enough for
me. Have been told to go for radiotherapy asap and will be seeing radologist
this morning.*CT scan results are not back yet but should know today. I will
definitely have to go for further treatments ie. new drugs to keep things in
control *but nothing decisive until we meet my oncologist on wed to discuss
furhter. Will keep you posted.

*My only concern is the lost of strength in my hands....cant do very much.
everything is a task now, tying shoe lace, changing, cant write....*

*Pls continue to pray for me. I ask God for direction and guidance to my
next move of remedy and that He will lead me to the one that will grant me
complete recovery, for courage and strength to face the challenges ahead
and the patience throughout. Lord, have mercy. *


Hi everyone

Just got back from the hospital. *Today isn't any better than yesterday. Saw
doctor and was summoned immediately to go for radiotherapy and will do so
for the next 10 days. Thereafter, more drugs. *

*Looks like the cancer won't leave me alone. It is now found also to be
playing up at the liver, my right lung (my only lung) and the rib on the
right. *

Doctor has recommended new drugs for maintenance. Pray that this will do its
job and kill off whatever cancerous cells that is left. Looks like its going
be a long, long journey from now. I am leaving this entirely to our Lord. *I
know you are all with me and I thank God for all of you, your prayers and
love that has been a great encouragement to me.Truly my family and I have
been touched by you and that to us is a blessing.*

Till then, peace of god be with you and your family.

My friend Chan, continued:

All I ask of you is to continue praying hard for Jennifer and to help them in
whatever little financial way each of us can. Even after undergoing radiotherapy
in the day, Jennifer still finds the strength to take her son Michael Junior for
his carolling practice despite her physical pain. What a wonderful mother! Her
devotion and love for her child puts many of us to shame. Let us all together play
our part in whatever little way we can to make sure that Jennifer can enjoy Michael
Junior's singing not just for this Christmas but for many many more
Christmases to come.

Michael, Jennifer's hubby really appreciates the help that has come
their way. However, right now he's feeling very down and also needs
encouragement and spiritual support from all of you. It will be good if all
of you could just drop him a line/send an sms/send an e-mail to let him know
we're with him at this time. It will also be okay with him if you want
him to know that you have contributed to his expense, then he will be able
to thank you personally. For your information, Michael's mobile nos. --

Hi Michael,

Just read about this thread. Hope Jennifer's doing fine.
My friend recommended this society to me some time ago. They make provision of advice to cancer patients. Try to give them a call see if anything helpful to Jennifer can be acquired.

Good luck.
