Miranda’s Journey: Fighting Cancer with Aloha

Donation protected
Meet Miranda and Kam Ching: a resilient couple celebrating 46 years of love, faith, and dedication. Their journey has been filled with joy, laughter, and countless memories made with their two children, Emily and Nathan, and their cherished 12 grandchildren. They live in Kaneohe, Hawaii, and pastor Independent Baptist Church in Honolulu.
However, their peaceful world was shaken when Miranda's health took a drastic turn in 2023. What began as troubling symptoms led to a devastating diagnosis: Intrahepatic Cholangiocarcinoma, a rare and aggressive cancer affecting the bile ducts. Despite the daunting prognosis, Miranda has put her faith and trust in God and is relying on His strength to carry her through this journey. With a heart full of love for her family and an unwavering determination to fight, Miranda has chosen to confront this challenge head-on.
Miranda's journey to healing requires specialized care, leading her to seek treatment at MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, TX. However, this path comes with significant financial hurdles. Becoming a patient alone demands a daunting $28,000 which will be followed by further medical expenses. As they prepare to embark on this journey, they face not only the emotional strain of battling cancer but also the stress of mounting medical expenses and travel costs.
This is where you can make a difference. Your donation, no matter the size, can help alleviate the financial burden weighing heavily on Miranda and her family. By extending your support, you're offering more than just financial assistance; you're providing a lifeline of hope, allowing Miranda to focus on what truly matters: spending precious moments with her loved ones and embracing each day with gratitude and courage.
Together, let's surround Miranda and her family with the warmth of our support. Your generosity can pave the way for Miranda to receive the treatment she urgently needs and allow her to continue her journey with strength and resilience. Join us in spreading the spirit of aloha and love as we stand together in solidarity with Miranda, Kam Ching, and their entire ohana during this challenging time.
Mahalo for your kindness, compassion, and generosity. Together, we can help Miranda write a new chapter filled with hope, healing, and the enduring power of love.

(Edit: stage of cancer was removed from this description since the opinion of the second doctor has stated they are unsure what stage it is. This will be updated ASAP.)

Please refer to the latest updates for the most current information regarding Miranda’s health and treatment. Her condition and treatment plan are subject to change following each doctor's visit. We are committed to providing accurate and timely updates as information evolves. Thank you for your continued support and understanding during this challenging time.
