I've checked my nuffnang and i found out this that i really think its a need to share with you guys.
I think we need to lend out our helping hands to those who are in need yeah? ((=
I hope, me, together with you guys, can help to save a little precious life ((=
As what the saying always goes :
" A PERSON IN NEED, IS A PERSON'S INDEED "
I HOPE MORE PEOPLE WILL GAIN AWARENESS OF THIS POOR LITTLE GIRL WHO REALLY NEEDS OUR HELP YEAH?
Well, the person i'm referring to is the girl below :
She is CHARMAINE, a 4 years old girl, who suffered from Neuroblastoma ,the most common extracranial solid cancer in childhood and the most common cancer in infancy .
Defination of Neuroblastoma :
Neuroblastoma is the most common extracranial solid cancer in childhood and the most common cancer in infancy, with an annual incidence of about 650 new cases per year in the US.
Close to 50 percent of neuroblastoma cases occur in children younger than two years old.
It is a neuroendocrine tumor, arising from any neural crest element of the sympathetic nervous system or SNS. It most frequently originates in one of the adrenal glands, but can also develop in nerve tissues in the neck, chest, abdomen, or pelvis.
Neuroblastoma is one of the few human malignancies known to demonstrate spontaneous regression from an undifferentiated state to a completely benign cellular appearance.
A disease exhibiting extreme heterogeneity, neuroblastoma is stratified into three risk categories: low, intermediate, and high risk.
Low-risk disease is most common in infants and highly curable with observation only or surgery, whereas high-risk disease is difficult to cure even with the most intensive multi-modal therapies available.

Okay, back to Charmaine,
Her chances of surviving is only a mere 10-20 % if she remains in Singapore for treatment,
But her chances of surviving will increased up to 40-50% ( almost double) if she seeks treatment in U.S.
But, we all know that expenses/ living / treatment in U.S are very expensive,
and the cost of this treatment is high though, with the initial deposit coming up to $500,000 SGD.
Can you imagined??!! Just the deposit only is already so expensive!!
Although many strangers had already did their part,
But thats still not enough!
I hope that we, can help her up,
regardless of our wealth.
For those that can help to donate,
Please help to donate.
For those that can't,
i hope you guys can be like me,
Spread it to more people.
A little help will make differences!
So lets just do our part to help this little girl,

GUYS , remember:
" OUR LITTLE KINDNESS WILL BE APPRECIATED , OUR ACTION WILL HELP SAVE THIS LITTLE GIRL "
God please bless her!!
