Issy's Health Care Fund

$47,835 of $35,000 goal

Raised by 317 people in 1 month
Created July 6, 2018
Our beloved Issy went into Yale Hospital to see an ENT and pulmonologist, and after a weekend's worth of tests and Issy's deteriorating condition they discovered a cerebellar tumor by her brain stem. It took an 8-hour surgery by a brilliant, dedicated team, and a whole lot of prayers, and now Issy is "Tumor-Free." Leaving Frank, Jeena, Issy, Lu, and all those praying for Issy in a posture of profound gratitude to God.

But the medical expenses are high, and there will be months of hospital bills (between $250,000 and $500,000, estimated.)  We'd love to help defray the cost for our Kwei-Choi family.

Dearest friends, family, neighbors, brothers and sisters, classmates, colleagues, Wiltonians, New Canaanites and FBer's who love Issy and our family,

We are so thankful for ALL of you for the overwhelming outpouring of love, prayers, support, warm thoughts, well wishes, and good vibes that this amazing community have been pouring on Issy. We are truly humbled and blessed beyond measure to receive such a tremendous gift. Thank you.

We are happy to report that Issy is making great progress. The cancerous brain tumor was removed completely on 7/4 and the subsequent spinal tap was clear, indicating that the cancer is localized. She has been at an acute rehab hospital in New Britain, CT since last Friday (7/20) receiving physical therapy for swallowing, central apnea and physical mobility. She is also scheduled to begin the first of four rounds of chemotherapy back at Yale late next week. The road ahead is long and challenging but we are confident that with the continual support of this community, Issy will make a complete recovery sooner than expected, beating all odds.

With heartfelt love and prayer of blessings for all of you,
The Kwei Family

Jeena and Frank, Issy and Lucia are bowled over by your generosity. Any unused funds will go “to the Ronald McDonald House of CT given by “Issy’s friends” where our family received clean, comfortable room to recharge and kitchen/dining facilities/playset where we were able to enjoy some time with our other 8yo daughter, Lucia. What an amazing place of respite and comfort, just across the street from Yale!”
