A single mother in Kien Giang Province is calling for financial support to help save her 12-year-old son from leukaemia after they were abandoned by the father.

  

Ho Thi Bao Xuyen and her son Huynh Hai Dang


Ho Thi Bao Xuyen, 30, said she had her first son, Huynh Hai Dang, is 12 years old. When she was pregnant with the second child, her husband left them for another woman, so she and her children moved to live with her parents. They live together in a small shack. Xuyen later went to Binh Duong Province to work, leaving the children to live with her parents.

Unfortunately, in 2019, Dang had a high fever while preparing for the final exams. At first, Xuyen thought it was because of academic pressure. But the fever didn't stop so she took him to the district hospital, a provincial hospital and then Children's Hospital 1 in HCM City where he was diagnosed with myelogenous leukaemia.

Xuyen tried to borrow money for chemotherapy but couldn't gather enough money so she brought Dang home.

"I called his father but it's no help," she said.

However, Dang's situation got worse as his body swelled up with high fevers and he became unconscious. Xuyen said she thought that she might lose Dang that time. Xuyen's father is a boatman and her mother cleans fish for some money. The hospital charge for January was nearly VND22m which is much more than they can afford.

"I know I have to stay strong for my children. Only when I stay strong that my son still has a chance to survive," Xuyen said. "We’ve already sold a plot of land so I have to borrow from the black market."

She went on to say that on the first few days, Dang was also depressed but he has become more optimistic and even tried to encourage her.
