My Story

Wing Yi was diagnosed with cancer at the age of two years and nine months and had to go through chemotherapy. The treatment had weakened her immunity and had do stay home all the time, but as a happy child she easily adapted to the new lifestyle. The discomfort brought about by the illness such as sudden binge eating/loss of appetite, nauseous or running a high fever, she could face them all with a big smile. She was always happy to go back to the hospital because she could meet new friends and play with them the toys she borrowed. She also enjoyed time with the CCF’s Child Life Specialists! Being able to paint, draw and to do arts and crafts for most half of the day left her with many happy moments. The intravenous therapy (IV), the LP and the smell of the rubbing alcohol were the things she disliked the most. But her expressiveness and assertiveness helped her find ways to deal with these unpleasant medical procedures. Sometimes she would even cheer up the healthcare workers. That’s why the nurses always commendeded her. I would also award her with some gifts for her brave performance. Wing Yi wished to could get well soon, so that she could grow her hair long again, eat anything she wanted and go out to play. She prayed for the sick kids and herself every day. As of August 2017, Wing Yi finsihed all of her treatments! Her wish to get well and go back to school has come true. Now she is a happy girl, returning to the hospital for checkup every 4 weeks.
