Yu Jun’s health issue was initially detected at only 10 months old. The first doctor the family consulted noted that Yu Jun had a heart problem. However, the family decided to let the matter rest after a second opinion, ruled that Yu Jun was in good condition. Unfortunately, her health continued to deteriorate with persistent flu and fever. This led Yu Jun’s family to get her health checked again after turning 1 year-old and came back with a clear diagnosis. Yu Jun lives with and is cared for by her grandparents, parents and other family members. Yu Jun’s mother is a housewife, while her father commutes daily cross-border to work in neighbouring Singapore.
Doctors found out that Yu Jun has a hole in her heart. Unfortunately Yu Jun does not have the necessary insurance coverage to gain proper medical attention and her parents do not have enough funds to handle the costly operation. Yu Jun’s parents even thought to make use of their EPF funds for her treatment. Thankfully, a doctor directed them to the IJN foundation and that was how we got engaged with the opportunity to help Yu Jun and her family to bear the surgical expenses.
Given Yu Jun’s condition, she will have to go through a procedure called the PDA occlusion. Patent ductus arteriosus (PDA) is a heart problem that occurs soon after birth in some babies. PDA patients suffer abnormal blood flow that occurs between two of the major arteries connected to the heart. PDA occlusion is a surgery to close the opening between a child’s aorta and pulmonary artery.
YOUR IMPACT BY DONATING FUNDS
Your contributions will fund Yu Jun’s operation and will help her grow as a healthy and strong child. In addition, the family has made plans to donate to other patients once they are financially able. Clearly it’s a cycle of kindness and charitable giving where you can be part of and initiate. Yu Jun needs your help to make a positive change together.
