My Name is David Yuan Cao , I am married to Lucy and we have two kids (Xin 16 and Emily 8). We are living in Ireland, a beautiful town called Dundalk since 2007.  Just before Christmas 2018, we got heartbreaking news, my 39 year old wife Lucy travelled to China to see top specialists where she was diagnosed with a rare and life threatening Liver cancer known as Itrahepatic Cholangiocarcinoma (ICC). She has had to remain in China. This was a total shock for me as I myself have fought stage 4 Thymoma Cancer  2015 and I'm in remission . How can this be happening to our family again?? It has been a tough few months for us and I know we need all the support we can get. The tumour is too big to be operated on at the moment . The treatment plan to save Lucy will require me and my family to stay in china up to a year or two, depending on her condition. The treatment is not covered by medical insurance or the Irish health system as it is so rare and uncommon in Ireland. We have spent most of our savings on specialist appointments and what treatments Lucy has received so far. All expensese have to be funded by me and my family. The treatment in China will cost around 800 euro per week. As this is a rare illness the hope is that the treatment will reduce the size of the tumour and therefore she could have surgery. This operation is the only way to cure her illness. We need the treatments in order for Lucy to have any chane of surgery. These treatments are her only chance right now. And its an expense that we struggle to raise oursleves. The aim of this fund is to cover her Targeted Therapy Medication expense. Her genetic testing was confirmed that two or three targeted therapy medication could help her. I ask you please if you can help support Lucy and my family in any way I would be so very grateful.  Lucy and my son & daughter are not aware of this so please consider them on Social media, please do not tag Xin or Lucy(she won't see it as Facebook is banned in China) if you are sharing it and again Thank you for your support. David
