It is in the time of great adversity that a family should come even closer together. Our uncle (Jack’s father) is recently diagnosed with nasopharyngeal carcinoma. Since cysts develop in that region cannot be surgically removed, that leaves the treatment options to be radiation and chemotherapy. The doctor has informed him that he has to undergo 8 weeks of combined radiation and chemo treatment as soon as possible. The illness will inevitably bring a heavy economic burden for his family. Hospital bills, lost wages and other expenses can add up quickly, especially the cancer treatment is not covered by his health insurance policy.

It pains me to think that our uncle, who has given ample amount of love to everyone who is in his life especially to our grandmother, will have to go through chemotherapy. As most of you know, he had looked after and taken care of our grandmother (his mother-in-law) until the very day she passed away. And that’s over 20 years of care, love, acceptance and tolerance for a lady who can be quite petulant.

The purpose of this webpage is to raise money to ease the financial burden for his family. Your generosity will do a lot more than providing financial assistance; it will offer emotional support and encouragement to our uncle in his battle against cancer. At the end of the day, I know there is nothing I can do to alleviate the physical pain of chemotherapy, to relieve the misery and discomfort that associate with the side effects of the treatment, or to ease the mental exhaustion of hospital trips. But, I know I can help with easing some of their financial burden. And I know you can as well. Each of us knows there are moments in life when the control that keeps us together is slowly slipping through our fingers. In the darkness of those hours, we all need encouragement, loyalty, love and support from friends and family to give us the strengths and keep us together.

And I ask, will you join me in supporting our uncle?
