Man battles against cancer after father’s death

A man in Nghe An Province is in need of financial support to help treat cancer after his father died of the same illness and his mother was diagnosed with molar tumour.

38-year-old Nguyen Dau Hoa has suffered greatly as illnesses plague his family.

After getting married, Hoa’s wife entered the guest worker programme but she left behind a small child and never returns. In 2007, Hoa’s father was diagnosed with prostate cancer and his mother was admitted to the hospital because of molar tumour.

He struggled to pay for hospital charges for Hoa’s parents and to raise his son, Nguyen Dau Quang. In 2014, Hoa remarried and the birth of his daughter, Nguyen Kha Ngan, brightened up the situation. However, his father died not long after. Hoa was also diagnosed with stomach cancer last year.

“I completely broke down. Without money, I’ll die for sure. So I tried to hide it but the pain made my wife become suspicious. After knowing about the illness, she encouraged me to take the treatment,” Hoa said.

Thanks to the help from his sisters, Hoa was admitted to Vietnam National Cancer Hospital in Hanoi and had the whole of the stomach removed. The whole family depends on the VND3m (USD130) monthly salary of Hoa’s wife, Nguyen Thi Thao.

Unfortunately, he continued to be diagnosed with diffuse large B-cell lymphoma and was transferred to the National Institute Of Haematology & Blood Transfusion. Doctors said stem cell transplant was the only way to save his life which cost as much as VND500m (USD21,500).

“I’ve had seven chemotherapy sessions and the price for a bottle of anti-cancer drug is VND33m. We already borrowed VND150m (USD1,400) from the bank,” he said.
