My mother, Nai Vang Saeturn, had joined the Heavenly Angels on May 8th, 2018 at the age of 49. She is survived by her husband, Sou Chiane Saechao (Jack Saechao), and her 5 children (John Saechao, Ricky Saechao, Christina Saechao, Kevin Saechao, and Lyna Saechao
My mother, like all mothers, was the sweetest person in the world. She brightens up the room with her warm smile and will make others laugh with the jokes she tells. My mom is strong, courageous, and a fighter. She had to deal with so much from us kids. Let alone, she also had to care for my younger sister Lyna, as my sister underwent two liver transplants. However, no one knew that behind all the smiles and laughter, my mother suffered serious health conditions. My mom was diagnosed with diabetes, kidney failure, severe sepsis, and also suffered from stroke. My mom was going in for dialysis and was trying to get all the treatment she could receive in order to stabilize her health conditions. She underwent an open heart surgery for a valve replacement in January 2018.
On April 22, 2018, she complained of headaches, migraines, dizziness and had no energy. My dad took her to the hospital and she was admitted to Kaiser Oakland and had not been home since. The disease my mom had been fighting this entire time had come back and caused severe strokes and brain damage. My mom developed infections throughout her entire body and the antibiotics that were being given to her were of no relief. On May 8, 2018 at 11:30pm, my mother had passed.
With the passing of my mom, my dad, who has been the sole provider, of a household of 5 (now 4), is now left with the burden of the financial costs for the funeral service and medical bills. We are asking our friends and family with providing assistance with the funeral costs and medical bills. My family and I are greatly appreciative of your generosity.
