Cancer patient in dire need of funds

Cancer patient in dire need of funds

A 21-YEAR-OLD patient, who lost her sight in the right eye to cancer when she was four years old, is now in need of funds to treat a second recurrence of the disease, Sin Chew Daily reported.

Vu Li Sean (pic), from Johor Baru, has undergone more than 25 operations since her first diagnosis.

When she was 11, she suffered a relapse when a malignant tumour was detected on her knee.

In 1997, the year she was diagnosed, Vu's father died of cancer. An older brother succumbed to the disease the following year.

The young woman recently became unable to stand and walk due to a spinal tumour.

Major Chinese dailies reported on Vu's appeal for funds, through the MCA Youth Public Service and Social Welfare Bureau, for medical treatment at Universiti Malaya Medical Centre.

Bureau deputy chairman Alex Lee said her family could not afford the medical fees, which would cost between RM50,000 and RM60,000.

For details and donations, call MCA headquarters at 03-2203 3888.

>Shoppers were shocked when a naked man walked around a shopping centre in Segamat, Johor, asking if they had seen his clothing, according to China Press.

"Brothers, I was just discharged from the hospital. Where are my clothes?" he was heard asking at about 8pm on Saturday.

"Stop taking my photos," the man told the daily's reporter.

Policemen managed to convince him to wear a pair of pants bought by the reporter and took him in for further investigation.

>Kwong Wah Yit Poh reported that Taiwanese model and actress Lin Chi-ling was spotted holding hands with a man in Shanghai recently, renewing talk that she was in a fresh relationship.

The duo gave an awkward smile and did not speak to reporters.

The love life of the 39-year-old star has always been a subject of interest among the press and public.
