Shin Min Daily News reported that the boy, Wu Hong Chang (pronunciation) had bruises on his face and fever when he was 3 years old.

After a blood test at the hospital, he was found to be suffering from Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia (ALL). After chemotherapy in Malaysia, his cancer recurred.

Last year, he went to Singapore National University Hospital to receive Chimeric Antigen Receptor T-cells (CART) therapy.

The treatment effect was good, but I didn’t expect to find that the CART cells were lost after a month.

It is necessary to transplant the bone marrow as soon as possible before the cancer cells recur, otherwise, the situation will be worrying.

Father, Wu Nai Long (pronunciation) (43 years old, Construction Project Manager) is ready to donate his bone marrow to save his child, but the medical expenses of 350,000 yuan (approximately RM1.09 million) are beyond his financial means, which is a big challenge.

Promise to be responsible for the next medical expenses

Upon seeing the news, Ang Tjoen Ming who happened to be in Singapore took the initiative to contact the boy’s family and soon as he arrived, he handed a cheque of 100,000 yuan (approximately RM310,000) to the boy’s father, and promised that he would be responsible for the subsequent medical expenses.

Don’t worry, the most important thing is to heal the child.

He was also generous in giving encouragements, told the boy, “‘Grandpa’ will help you so that you can live a healthy life after recovery. You will definitely be a good person and more capable than ‘grandpa’.”

Ang was moved after meeting the boy, saying that his youngest grandson was about 4 years old, so after he seeing the photo of Wu Hong Chang, he immediately decided to help.

He told reporters in an interview that he received a call asking about his son’s current situation and address.

I didn’t expect him to come to the door in person in the afternoon and bring a cheque for 100,000 yuan (approximately RM310,000).

He said that he is now finally at peace and can concentrate on his son’s treatment.

Since he was diagnosed with the disease at the age of 3, in Wu Hong Chang’s cognitive world, the hospital is one of his most familiar places as he has never gone to school.
