#savegebbie CLL & Lymphoma

Gebbie Hou was diagnosed with Stage IV Lymphoma and had beat it with chemotherapy back in 2013. In November 2016, she was then also diagnosed with Chronic Lymphocytic Leukaemia (CLL). A couple weeks ago, her lymphoma relapsed. Since then she been hospitalized to undergo a second line chemotherapy treatment and for multiple blood transfusions. 

Gebbie was born in Hong Kong and immigrated to Vancouver BC when she was 12. She is now 47 and has been a flight attendant for 18 years. In 2013, Gebbie often felt tired and had back pain, night sweats and also suffered from insomnia. She consulted her family physician who then referred her to BC Cancer Centre, which was where she was diagnosed with Stage 4 Lymphoma. After a year of chemotherapy, Gebbie slowly recovered and in 2015, she happily returned to job she loved. 

In mid 2016, her cancer relapsed and her oncologist diagnosed her with Chronic Lymphocytic Leukaemia. She developed quite a relapsed and her CT scan indicated a significant progression in many areas including her organs. She was admitted into Richmond emergency in early December 2016 as she needed emergency blood transfusion. Since then, her condition has stabilized with the aid of oral medication, but unfortunately this form of treatment did not contain her disease. She was in urgent need for a stem cell match for a bone marrow transplant and many stem cell drives were held for her but with no matches yet. 

Currently Gebbie's sister,Ilex, has taken a leave of absence at work in Hong Kong to take care of her daily here in Canada. We are reaching out to ask for assistance as Gebbie will need daily medical care when Ilex returns back to work.  The cost of ongoing supportive drug expenses are quite expensive should it no longer be covered through Gebbie's work. 

All donations will be graciously accepted and will directly aid Gebbie’s journey in fighting cancer. I, Jeffery Chan, along with my sister, Ivy, are helping Gebbie and her sister, Ilex by managing this campaign. Ivy is withdrawing the funds herself and will transfer them to our Aunts outside of GoFundMe. Gebbie Hou

在2013年被診斷患有IV期淋巴瘤,並在2013年之後用化療治療過。在2016年11月,她被診斷為慢性淋巴細胞白血病(CLL)。幾個星期前,她的淋巴瘤復發。從那以後,她住院接受二線化療和多次輸血。 Gebbie出生於香港,12歲時移民到溫哥華。她現年47歲,當空姐已經18年了。 2013年,Gebbie經常感到疲倦,腰痛,盜汗,還有失眠。她諮詢了她的家庭醫生,後來將她轉介到BC癌症中心,那是她被診斷為4期淋巴瘤的地方。經過一年的化療後,Gebbie慢慢康復,2015年,她開心地回到了自己喜歡的工作。 2016年年中,她的癌症復發,她的腫瘤醫生診斷她患有慢性淋巴細胞白血病。她發生了相當多的複發,她的CT掃描顯示包括她的器官在內的許多區域都有明顯的進展。由於她需要緊急輸血,她於2016年12月初因急診入院。從那以後,她的病情在口服藥物的幫助下穩定下來,但不幸的是,這種治療方式並不包含她的疾病。她迫切需要為骨髓移植做一次幹細胞匹配,並且許多幹細胞驅動都是為她而舉辦的,但目前還沒有匹配。 目前Gebbie的姊姊Ilex在香港上班休假,在加拿大每天照顧她。當Ilex恢復工作時,我們正伸出援助之手,因為Gebbie需要每日的醫療護理。如果不再通過Gebbie的工作覆蓋,持續支持藥物費用的代價相當昂貴。所有的捐款都會被接受,並會直接幫助Gebbie抗擊癌症的旅程。
