Southeast Asia Globe - - Panorama -

The par­ents of an 18-year-old Malaysian girl who do­nated her or­gans to eight dif­fer­ent peo­ple af­ter be­ing di­ag­nosed with ar­te­ri­ove­nous mal­for­ma­tion (AVM) have pledged to fight for or­gan do­na­tion across the globe through the re­lease of a film telling their daugh­ter’s story. All pro­ceeds from the film will be do­nated to the pro­posed Car­men Mark Fund to be dis­bursed among fam­i­lies of chil­dren di­ag­nosed with AVM. “Chil­dren who have [AVM] can be saved, but the pro­ce­dure is not cheap,” fa­ther Mark Koh Wah told the

Straits Times. “We would like to help them through the foun­da­tion.”
