Loke Kai Xin Needs Your Help

Loke Kai Xin was diagnosed with Biliary Atresia when she was three months old and a Kasai procedure (hepatoportoenterostomy) was done way back in February 2009. Unfortunately, the procedure did not cure her condition and she was advised to go for a liver transplant as her last and only option.

Due to under weight, she was advised by UM Specialist Centre (UMSC), Malaysia to seek medical help from Singapore. After the first pre-assessment at National University Hospital of Singapore (NUH), both parents were found to be suitable candidate donors for Kai Xin. Both parents were in NUH on 1st of June 2009 for the second pre-assessment to confirm and determine their suitability to be the donors.

The total cost including post-operations and follow up is expected to be around RM500K which is equivalent to 200K Singapore Dollars (pre-assessment, liver transplant, post operations, follow ups & etc) or more due to her age.

This amount is just too expensive for them to bear in full; therefore they are appealing for your help. They have also contacted News Strait Times (NST) but NST has a condition before publishing their plight, that is to get the confirmed donor information and operation date - which Eric (the father) could only provide after the second pre-assessment.

A fund has been set-up for Kai Xin with following bank account details. For those who are keen, kindly deposit your donations (cash or cheque) in favour of:

Name: Loke Kai Xin

Maybank BerhadA/C No.: 1-14013-213313

Note: If you use maybank2u or ATM, you'll see Lee Huey Jing stated there for confirmation
