    Exclamation [HELP] Donation Drive for Charmaine Lim Medical Treatment

    Note:
    1) Instead of passing the funds directly to Stardusz aka Brenda (a Moderator in Hardwarezone), we will be consolidating 100% of the funds received from SG-ROC first before passing it to her on 28 June 2009 since she has been in direct contact with Charmaine's mother.

    2) The details posted on this thread is mostly copied from Stardusz's original thread in hwz here. http://forums.hardwarezone.com.sg/sh....php?t=2401569. Please do REFER to her thread for more information on how she is going to pass the $, etc.

    3) To keep things transparent, we would update all the names of those who have donated (confirmed received payment) on this thread. However, you will need to let us know if you want us to mask the amount or to hide your nick totally. Eg,

    Normal Cases: Louisoh - $20
    Hide Donation amount: Louisoh - xxxx
    Does not want your nick to be shown: xxxxxxx - $20
    etc etc

    4) Once payment has been passed to Stardusz from HWZ, we will ask for a confirmation that she has received the $ from SG-ROC. We'll then post it here for transparent purposes.

    5) Lastly, this is not a compulsory donation. Simply donate whatever you are comfortable with. Thanks for your kindness.

    *All donations from SG-ROC will be kept by me





    Please note that any post not related to this project will be deleted away

    Who are we helping?
    Charmaine Lim, a 4 year-old girl


    Why are we helping?
    Here's a little history:
    Little Charmaine is down with cancer Neuroblastoma, stage 4, high risk. This is a form of cancer that occurs in infants and young children. For Charmaine case, hers is high risk as her cancer has spread to her bone marrow and bones.

    Her doctor, Dr. Aung, has sent her family an email saying that they can bring little Charmaine to New York for treatment, however they need to pay an upfront deposit of USD $350,000 (About SGD $507,955 basing on the exchange rate of USD $1: SGD $1.45)

    So far, according to the conversation that I had with Charmaine’s mummy, Cynthia, They have gathered about $50,000; this includes all their savings. However, that’s a far cry from the amount needed for the treatment.


    Ok, how can we help then?
    I understand that we are not born with silver spoons in our mouths. But, I feel that we should help those in need. Please donate an amount within your own means; any amount will bring little Charmaine one step closer to the treatment she need.

    If you are interested in lending a helping hand, [*Account will be updated as soon as i have confirmation*].

    Before you perform any bank transfer, please PM triton OR louisoh with the following details:
    Name (Nickname): [Nickname will be updated in the thread]
    Contact No: [To inform you that I’ve receive your donation]
    Bank Acct no: [To check for bank transfer]
    Amount donated: [Amount donated will be updated in the forum]
    Privacy Info: To mask amount / To HIDE nick from this thread totally, etc

    Please put your subject header as: [Donation] - Charmaine Lim's Medical Fund


    Can I donate via Paypal?
    No. This is because Paypal will deduct some money that will serve as their admin & service charges. But what I really want is for little Charmaine to receive all the money.

    How to long will this drive last?
    This drive will start from today and continue to run till 28th Jun 2009, 23:59. Reason being, the original donation drive at HWZ will end on 29/06/2009.

    Is there anything else to take note of?
    Yes. Please take note that if Charmaine were to unfortunately does not survive before the money was handed to her parents, the money will be donated to Children Society, Singapore. I’ve spoken to Charmaine mother on this and she is agreeable to this decision.

    Any where for me to read more?
    Yes. Here’s some links that you can visit:
    To read more about Charmaine current status, please click here: http://ourfeistyprincess.com/index.php
    To view some videos or pictures of Charmaine, please click here: http://ourfeistyprincess.com/photogallery.php




    Final note: I would like to express my heartfelt thank to all the helpful ones who have donated. You guys and gals really make this place a better and warmer world to live in. Let’s hope and pray (for those who have a religion) that little Charmaine pulls through this and get well soon.

    All the best Charmaine, you must be strong!

    bros, please make it sticky please.

    will keep her in the midst of the prayers....

    is there any way in which we could contact MOH or any govt organisations to step in?? it seems like after all the efforts which have been placed in, its quite tough to raise even 15% of the required amount, which is 507k....

    I doubt those organization would help.... anyway, i'm sure the mother already tried....

    P.S: Personally, to be frank, i'm not very enthusiast about these kind of donations myself.... looking back at the Huang Na case sometime back, so much donations and what did the mother did with it? Build a big and nice home back in China. However, IMO, this is a different scenario whereby the little girl still have some hope of surviving tru this rare cancer. Lets just hope for the best shall we...

    Default Article in today's TNP, Thurs - 18 Jun

    Readers donate $40,000 despite downturn

    THE downturn may be hitting many Singaporeans hard, but it has not stopped them from reaching into their wallets to help those in need.

    After The New Paper ran a story about 4-year-old cancer patient Charmaine Lim on Saturday, there has been an outpouring of messages from readers offering donations to help the little girl seek treatment overseas.

    So far, about $40,000 in donations have been collected.

    The New Paper had reported that the little girl had a 20 per cent chance of surviving neuroblastoma, even after she finishes her ongoing treatment at the National University Hospital.

    Neuroblastoma is a kind of cancer that occurs in infants and young children. But her chances of survival could jump by 40 to 50 per cent, if she receives an alternative form of treatment that is offered in the US.

    The treatment, which costs slightly more than $500,000, was something that Charmaine's mother Ms Cynthia Lim, 35, could ill afford.

    The New Paper has received at least 40 calls and e-mails after the report ran. All were strangers to the little girl, but all warmly expressed their desire to donate and help Charmaine.

    Online forums like Hardwarezone, Singapore Motherhood and other photography forums have also chipped in, with ongoing donation drives.

    Another $410,000 needed

    This brings the total amount raised for Charmaine's treatment, including earlier donations and Ms Lim's own savings, to $90,000. This means another $410,000 is needed in order for Charmaine to receive treatment.

    One of the two largest donors so far is a businessman in the manufacturing industry, who is in his late 40s. The donor, who wanted to be known only as Mr Toh, gave $5,000, directly to the Lims. It is understood he is one of the two such donors. The other donor wanted to remain anonymous.

    Mr Toh said that two years ago, his son had suffered from testicular cancer, but recovered after treatment. His son was then 19. Mr Toh said: "I know how it feels to see someone young go through this. It's very sad."

    He said he donated despite the economic gloom because he could afford it.

    "I'm blessed so why not bless and help other?"

    He added that he hopes Charmaine will be cured, and live a long and fruitful live.

    Another reader Mr L Yap, 61, who works in a bank, wrote to The New Paper, saying that he wanted to donate a "few hundred dollars".

    Having been diagnosed with stage three colorectal cancer last October, he said he knew exactly what it was like to go through painful cancer treatments. He just completed his eighth round of chemotherapy last month.

    The outpouring of good wishes has been overwhelming, said Ms Lim, who had quit her job as a project manager at a water treatment company in April this year to look after her daughter.

    She told The New Paper on the phone from the KK Women's and Children's Hospital (KKH) yesterday that Charmaine will be undergoing a six-hour surgery today to remove her tumour.

    She will be hospitalised for about a week.

    Ms Lim admits the last couple of days have been hard as she has been anxious over her daughter's surgery. She said: "Half of my tears are because I'm so worried and the other half are of happiness, because of all these Singaporeans who have come forward to help me."

    "I'm very grateful and touched and it makes me very proud to be a Singaporean."
