Ex-leukaemia girl seeks funds to treat hep­ati­tis

New Straits Times - - News -

KOTA BARU: The fam­ily of an exleukemia pa­tient is seek­ing do­na­tions from the public for the treat­ment of the 10 year old who is now suf­fer­ing from Hep­ati­tis C.

Nurhas­mimie Ab­dul Hamid from Kam­pung Eng­gong in Kuala Krai has been leukaemia-free for a year, but she was di­ag­nosed with Hep­ati­tis C in De­cem­ber.

Her mother, Ram­lah Md Said, said Nurhas­mimie needed RM50,000 for her treat­ment at Univer­siti Sains Malaysia Hos­pi­tal in Kubang Ke­rian here.

“We have so far col­lected RM35,000, with RM15,000 com­ing from a TV3 fund.”

Ram­lah said her hus­band, Ab­dul Hamid Ab­dul­lah, was a rub­ber tap­per with a monthly in­come of RM500 and the fam­ily could not af­ford the treat­ment.

She said Nurhas­mimie, a Year 3 pupil at SK Sun­gai Em­bak, was an ac­tive girl be­fore she was di­ag­nosed with leukaemia.

“Since she is now leukaemi­afree, we hope the treat­ment will make her cheer­ful and ac­tive again,” said Ram­lah.

All cheques should be made payable to Media Prima-NSTP Hu­man­i­tar­ian Fund, with the pa­tient’s name writ­ten on the back of the cheque and ad­dressed to Media Prima Ber­had, Group Cor­po­rate Com­mu­ni­ca­tions Depart­ment, Level 1 An­jung Riong, Balai Berita, 31, Jalan Riong, 59100 Bangsar, Kuala Lumpur.
