you believe in fate? Do you think it is fate that has
brought you to read this website to know more about
the Hong Kong Blood Cancer Foundation?
It was fate that brought me
to participate in the establishment of the Hong Kong
Blood Cancer Foundation. I met Professor Raymond Liang
and his wife during my son's music lessons with their
daughter. Professor Liang and his wife were planning
to organize a foundation for blood cancer patients at
the time and I joined in by helping them find helpful
personnel through my network of previous work relationships.
In fact Mr Joel Chu, my ex-colleague, is now one of
the committee members of the Foundation. Having Joel
as member of the Foundation has been particularly meaningful
since he is one of Professor Liang's former patients
and a living example of someone who has overcome blood
cancer. Mr Yee Chung Man, also an old friend of mine,
was instrumental in helping me find Ms Chan Po Chu to
become the Foundation's Honorary Ambassador.
to organize two to three charity events each year to
raise funds in the following four areas for the Hong
Kong Blood Cancer Foundation"
medical research projects on blood cancer
technological developments to provide early and
accurate diagnosis to blood cancers
the rapid introduction of effective and advanced
treatment for blood cancer, and prevent delay due
to limited public spending on hospital services
in Hong Kong
the provision of better support services to patients
and their families - looking after their socio-psychological
needs is a precious thing.
What can you do to help smooth the
road for those in need?
