Five-year-old child with leukemia needs help

Be Hoang Nguyen, five-year-old son of Be Hoang Bong (born in 1988) and Huynh Thuy Bich Ngoc (born in 1989), has been affected by leukemia and is in need of help. They are living in residential group 3, Ninh Hiep Ward, Ninh Hoa Town, Khanh Hoa Province.
 
Hoang Nguyen is being treated at Ho Chi Minh City Blood Transfusion Hematology Hospital. Nguyen’s parents have worked at Khanh Hoa General Hospital since 2013. Bong is an emergency department doctor; Ngoc is a nurse in pediatrics. They live in a rented house and have two children, Hoang Nguyen and Kha Nhien (born in 2018).
 
In mid-April, Hoang Nguyen stumbled and fell and bruised his body. Some days afterwards, Nguyen presented some symptoms such as loss of appetite and pale skin, more bruises which didn’t go away.  He was diagnosed with leukemia by the doctors of Khanh Hoa General Hospital and was transferred to Ho Chi Minh City Blood Transfusion Hematology Hospital for treatment.

At Ho Chi Minh City Blood Transfusion Hematology Hospital, Nguyen was diagnosed to have B-cell leukemia. This disease needs to be treated with six cycles of chemotherapy in around two years or more. Nguyen’s parents borrowed VND70 million from their friends to pay Nguyen’s treatment cost. Their relatives also have their own difficulties, so they could only help Nguyen’s family with some small support. The Labor Union and the Social Work Bureau of Khanh Hoa General Hospital called for support from the hospital’s staff and benefactors to help Nguyen’s family.
 
Reportedly, since April 22, Nguyen has had three times of chemotherapy, weighing only 16kg. Nguyen’s condition has got better after his latest chemotherapy; he has been able to drink milk and hasn’t felt nauseated. 
 
Khanh Hoa Newspaper hope that readers and benefactors everywhere will offer assistance to Nguyen’s family so that his disease can be treated and get better. Support can be sent to Huynh Thuy Bich Ngoc (phone number 0367.640.627), Khanh Hoa Newspaper office (phone number 0258.3822019) at 77 Yersin St., Nha Trang City, or Khanh Hoa Newspaper’s bank account at Vietcombank Nha Trang (account number 0581000765262).
