Quan is a slight eight-year-old boy. He was born with CAH, a condition that means he must take medicine every day and he must go to the hospital for regular check-ups. Quan’s medical costs are expensive and his parents are very poor. They have been forced to borrow money as their monthly income is quite meagre.
Quan just started third grade, he is excited for his new school year. He looks much thinner than his other classmates due to his disease, though he says that he never feels insecure about his illness or appearance. Quan is a really strong and optimistic boy. He loves his family a great deal; especially his mum, who sacrifices a lot raising him.
When ACCV gave Quan a schoolbag for his new semester, he looked so thrilled; he spent a while with the bag, grinning with joy. Then, to everyone’s surprise, Quan said that he would not keep the bag and he would give it to his brother because his brother’s bag is older. It’s incredible to see such thoughtfulness and kindness in such a young boy.
Sadly, Quan’s mum was recently diagnosed with heart disease, which means that she can no longer work. She spends most of her time at home cleaning and looking after her children. Quan’s mum said that sometimes she doesn’t dare to go to the hospital for treatment because she does not have much money and she wants to spend it on Quan’s medical fees. Lack of medical care has meant she is quite weak herself.
It’s incredible to see the dedication she has to her children.
Quan and his family would like to thank ACCV and sponsors for all of their kind support, it has made their lives so much better.
