Please Help Thomas for his cancer

1



The Story
9 months ago

Please help us to take care of my step farther, Thomas , to receive cancer treatment at Ramathibodi hospital in Bangkok. The insurance will expire in October and can not be renewed nor upgraded due to the current health condition.

Thomas is a 69-year-old Swedish man who has been living with his family in Thailand for decades and recently found out that he has a colon cancer which has already spread to his liver and lungs. Currently, he is in Chemotherapy for 12 sessions which is expected to stop the spread of the cancer so that he will be able to start other treatments such as colon surgery. Moreover, there are other related  laboratory tests that he has to undertake which costs a lot of money. 

The cancer was discovered by coincidence at a health check for renewal of his insurance policy. Now, due to his health, he is not accepted by any insurance companies. The currently insurance will be terminated in the upcoming September (2023) which partly covers some other treatments but not the cancer. After the September 2023, he will not carry any insurance policy which will put him and his family in financial hardship. This fund-raising will help him to continue his treatment to fight with the cancer as well as further surgeries after the cancer is under control.

This page is set up and monitored with the help of Thomas’s step son, Sorn Nawapnich, as it is a bit difficult for me to set up a page in Australia, where I live and work.Our aim is THB 750,000 which we hope will be sufficient for 2023. Hopefully recovery can start 2024. Thomas wants to work as much as possible and we support him as much as we can. His wife, Moan does a great job driving him to hospital and work plus taking care of the home together with my sister Pun.

We will provide progress bulletins to all donators who provide their contact email.




Update from October 31 2023

First of all, Thank you very much to all donors who generously donated to Thomas cancel fight. 

.

Breifly, he have completed his 10th chemo session which there are other 2 sessions left and he will undertake CT scan to assess his progression of the treament on the 5th of Novemeber and plan for surgeries and further treaments. 

.

Since the chemotherapy started in May 2023, he has undergone with 2 emergent hospitalisations due to infections which his family has to drive from his hometown to Bangkok (3 hours away).  Now, he is up to the end of his first treamment which is expected to be on November 20th and a meetinng with cancer specialists to evaluate his result from the post-chemo CT scan. The doctors want to get to it as quick as possible not to get the tumors a chance to start recovering and spreading which makes sense and Thomas and family are impressed over the speed it is handled.

.

Currently, Thomas are doing ok and we are hopping that the CT scan result turns out positively and he will not undergo with any medication after this treament done.
