Small baby girl struggles against leukaemia
  • | dtinews.vn | December 04, 2020 09:49 AM
A couple in HCM City are calling for financial support to help cover surgery fees for their two-year-old daughter who is struggling with leukaemia.

Duong Ha Bich Nhung is the youngest daughter of Duong Duc Manh and Tu Anh. Even though she is only two years old, she has been through three chemotherapy sessions and a bone marrow transplant is her only hope. However, her family can't afford the VND400m (USD17,391) costs.

  

Nhung was diagnosed with leukaemia.


Manh said when his daughter was born, she often cried and had fever but nobody thought that they were cancer symptoms. For over a year, Nhung has spent most of her time in hospital. Doctors at the Ho Chi Minh City Oncology Hospital said she had to stay in the hospital to be monitored. Even if she was allowed to go home, it would be for one or two days only. She had two seizures while going through the chemotherapy sessions and sometimes had necrosis.

Both Nhung's parents are workers with little income. Nhung's father had sold their land and borrowed everywhere but it was only enough to pay hospital charges for one year.

After one year at Ho Chi Minh City Oncology Hospital, they mostly depended on charity meals to get by. They were sometimes given money by kind people. But Nhung's condition suddenly worsened and she was recently transferred to Ho Chi Minh City Haematology and Blood Transfusion Hospital. The family has to pay VND15m (USD645) to VND20m for her treatment every week.


Dr Dang Quoc Thanh at Ho Chi Minh City Haematology and Blood Transfusion Hospital said, "We can't say how Nhung will recover after the bone marrow transplant. But considering her current state, a bone marrow transplant is the only chance. The surgery cost is VND400-500m."




The mother, Tu Anh, cries when talking about her daughter's condition.

"We already borrowed lots of money for her. But I only need her to be healthy again, I'll work hard to repay all debts," the father said.
