Goodbye Gam…

I posted this story/photo in my Facebook a few days ago. This is Gam, a 7-year old Thai girl who was only recently diagnosed as having Medulloblastoma, or simply put, brain cancer. She comes from a poor family and I was helping to raise some funds for her treatment. For the last few days, Gam was in the ICU at Bangkok’s National Cancer Insitute at Rama Road, Bangkok, fighting for her young life. Other than payment for the ICU room, medicine and treatment is free in this specialist cancer facility. I removed this posting from Facebook after a few hours because I did not want to appear as soliciting for funds publicly.

I received news at 3.53pm today that Gam passed away in the ICU. May she rest in peace.
