"To Save
My Daughter's Life"
June 20, 2000

SOS - Lin
Her arriving to this world brought us happyness

Dear Sir/Madam,

It is asking kind help from China to save my daughter's life. My daughter is a one-year-old girl. She was diagnosed as having serious congenital heart diseases (VSD, functionally single ventricle, transposition of great arteries and pulmonary hypertension). The diagnosing doctors told me that my daughter's diseases were highly rare, complex, dangerous and almost incurable in China. My husband and I are in the deepest despair.

My husband and I are ordinary workers in China. We are trying to seek possible international help, which seems to be the only opportunity for my daughter. Our economic situation is poor and cannot afford international medical expenses. So any help or information about charitable medical organizations and possible financial support will be highly appreciated. To find more possible help from the kind people all over the world, we hope this message could be spread out.

My family would be extremely grateful if you would like to give us help in whatever way.

Thank you very much!
Yours sincerely,
Wei Chuangxin

Dear BOES.ORG crew,

My daughter's name is Lin Wei-hua. She was born on June 12, 1999. She is a lovely girl. Her arriving to this world brought us happyness. We love her just like other parents to their children. Unfortunately, she was dignosed as congenital heart disease. We took her from Fuzhou to Shanghai to go to the best hospotal in China. But we were told that she cannot be performed surgery because of the technique here.

My daughter is only one year old. She does not know what is happening to her. She also does not know what is waiting for her. I hope that she would never know and she can grow up happy, like other children.

The diagnosis report from Shanghai Children's Medical Center was translated to English. It is attached below.

Sincerely yours,
Wei Chuangxin
