Dear Marist Partners,
From now till 12th March 2010 - The PSG is organising a Special Donation Drive in aid of an ex-Marist,Tan Jock Biao ( 2002,Sec 4A)
- TJB Medical Fund.
Please read Mr Paul Kwok, HOD Pupil Development, account of his story below :
Tan Jock Biao (Class of 2002: Sec 4A) is staying at Room 2H at the Assisi Hospice (beside Mt. Alvernia Hospital).
He has an inoperable brain tumour. Doctors diagnosed his condition late last year (2009). He is currently on morphine. The doctors informed his parents that they will do an MRI on him (after Chinese New Year) to ascertain the size of the tumour. They will then decide on the follow-up.
Jock Biao's father is an electrician. His mother has quit her job to look after him. Jock Biao was studying at NTU (3rd Year: Engineering) when he became sick.
At the hospice, Jock Biao looks heavily sedated and half-conscious. He can hear people speaking to him, but hardly.
Jock Biao's parents explained that a day's stay at the hospice costs over $100.
The teachers have made a money contribution to Jock Biao and his parents.
In the attached picture, Jock Biao is 3rd from left.
If you are touched by the challenges this young man is facing , please help us extend our love and concern for this family.
Please ask your son to pass the donation in a sealed envelope with your name, son's name/class and amount enclosed and hand it over to the PVs ( Parent Volunteers) on duty in the SC during recess .
