On October 10th, 2020, my father fell down from his workplace and caused cerebral hemorrhage (also known as a cerebral bleed) in his brain. After being sent to the hospital, he had surgery to remove the blood. Because he was in a coma for too long, the doctor said that there is very little chance of him waking up so he suggests us to give him up. Even if he woke up, he would have many sequelae in the future.
Even worse, the immigration application that my father being the guarantor has not yet been fully approved due to Covid-19 and policy changes, so we do not have health cards and did not buy any additional insurance in Canada for my father nor my family. The premise of the company is that they will only buy insurance for employees who have worked for more than 12 months, but my dad only worked for 8 months. And this causes my family's financial burden even bigger.
Currently, my father is still in the ICU of the hospital, and the cost of a hospital bed in the intensive care department is $1100 per day. This is just the cost of a hospital bed for a day, and our current family situation and with four children cannot support this bill for long. So our purpose of fundraising is to continue to support my dad’s treatment plan or have enough money for litigation costs. Even if my dad can’t make it through, I hope that this money can support my family’s financial needs and reduce my mother's burden.
My father Andy was a nice man who cares a lot about his four children and wife, we loved him just as he did and we miss him very much, we had a happy life before this terrible event happened. Right now my family really needs this money to support him in this terrible time.
There is no limit to the number of times or the amount of money for the donations. A little support or even share can help my family a lot. Finally, thank you all for your trust and donations! Lastly I speak English, Mandarin and Cantonese so feel free to email me in those languages!
