Urgent appeal: Yong and Ho are appealing for public donations to save Louise who needs to undergo a liver transplant in Singapore.

KUALA LUMPUR: Baby Louise Yong Loong Er is suffering from a rare liver disease and urgently needs to undergo a liver transplant but her parents cannot afford the RM800,000-odd operation cost.

Real estate agent Nick Yong, 35, and housewife Ho Pei-shun, 32, are appealing for public donations to save their 16-month-old daughter.

Yong said Louise was diagnosed with bi­­liary atresia when she was four months old.

She has been undergoing treatment at the University Malaya Medical Centre.

“However, her condition has deteriora­ted. Doctors advised that Louise undergo a liver transplant immediately but the surgery can only be done at the National Uni­versity Hospital of Singapore and costs S$300,000 (RM805,300),” Yong said at a press conference arranged by Gombak MCA Youth yesterday.

“I have used up all my savings of about RM30,000 on her treatment,” he said.

“Please, help my daughter and give her a chance to live,” Yong said.

Yong and Ho have two other daughters, aged seven and 10. Gombak MCA Youth chief Lawrence Yip Jiun Hann handed over RM2,000 to the family.

Anyone wishing to help the baby can send their donations to the Nanyang Press Foundation (OCBC bank account no 701-120679-6). For details, call 03-7650 8651, 8675 or 8694 or Jessy (012-223 9516) or Winnie (012-331 2292) or email to pa.my@trademark2u.my.
