Dear Friends and Family,
Last month (May 2017), Bee was diagnosed with Stage IV Lung cancer and given less than six months to live. Unfortunately, the cancer has spread far into his hip, pelvis, and the back of his cerebellum/brain. After much discussion with his family and with the doctors, Bee has made the decision not to undergo chemotherapy and instead opt for hospice and homecare services.
At the moment, Bee lives with his mother and is being taken care of by his sons and close relatives. Unable to work a job due to disability and confined to his bed, he struggles with swelling, chest pain, disorientation, seizures, and rapid weight loss on top of financial matters.
The purpose of this Fundraiser would be to help pay for any medication, medical bills, caretaker/hospice services, and travelling fees that he may need in the time he has left. Furthermore, when the time comes, the funds will be used for funeral expenses.
Any and all sized donations are welcome.
Thank you and God bless.
"The LORD is my rock and my fortress and my Savior, my God, my rock in whom I take refuge, my shield, and the strength of my salvation, my stronghold." - Psalm 18:2
Unfortunately, my dad passed away yesterday on Thursday, July 20th, at 3 AM.
He died peacefully in his sleep while being surrounded by family and friends for most of the 24 hours preceding his death. And now, he has gone on to a better place.
Rest in Peace, dad.
"The eternal God is thy refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms".
As of this time, my dad has entered the final stage of his hospice care. Unfortunately, all signs indicate a few days to a few weeks left before he passes.
For everyone who helped donate the past several weeks, I just wanted to thank you for your help. Know that my dad appreciated it in the moments leading up to now. It brought him tremendous amounts of comfort and joy when he needed it most.
If you have any questions or comments, feel free to direct them to me. Otherwise, please keep my dad in your thoughts and prayers.
With kindest regards,
My dad is touched by all the donations and comments that have poured in the past week. He offers his gratitude to everyone who has assisted him, whether through financial means or emotional support.
Physically, he is in better shape then he was a month ago. Since his visit to the emergency room in May, he has climbed back up from 74 lbs to 130+ lbs and continues to show more energy than before. Yesterday, with the assistance of a walker, he walked straight for roughly 150 feet. This is an improvement from when he struggled to get up at the hospital.
Yesterday was also the first time he ate out at a restaurant since his cancer effected him back in April. We went to a Chinese-Vietnamese-Thai restaurant called Rolling Wok Cafe where a good friend of his (who also works there) ordered him a bowl of Pho. It was satisfying, Dad said. We plan to visit more places.
Otherwise, in his spare time, Dad likes to check this page and all of the comments written on here. I know every donation and comment means a tremendous amount to him and keeps his spirits up. Truthfully, I can't thank everyone enough. All of this has been deeply felt and appreciated in a way that I can't even express with words alone. Just know it means a lot to us.
For now, I wish everyone all the best.
