Chemo treatment for Ha Phuong Hoang

I am Paul Sandman from Louisville, KY.  My wife is Tham Sandman, and she has a niece, Ha Phuong,  in Thanh Hoa , Vietnam. Ha Phuong  has recently been diagnosed with juvenile leukemia.  Her parents now stay with her at the hospital  24/7.  The hospital is a four hour drive from their home.  They currently have no income, and they also have zero savings. Her blood transfusion and hospital stay has been funded so far by her Aunt Tham through the income she makes at the nail salon that she owns in Louisville, Kentucky. Unfortunately, the salon was just closed by the city due to a structural problem with the St Matthews building housing the salon, so she no longer has the income to help pay for her niece's treatment.
In order to improve, Ha Phuong needs chemotherapy for 3 months, costing $10,000 each month.  We are asking for $30,000 to help cover these costs.  The funds we receive will be used for the chemo and related treatments. The hospital requires payment before treatment can begin, so as soon as we receive $10,000, she can start treatment. Funds collected will be wired to the family, to be used exclusively for Ha Phuong's medical treatment.
We greatly appreciate any amount of giving.
