Hi Everyone,

As some of you may have already heard, Tammy and Tom were involved in a very unfortunate incident in Vietnam. For those of you who don't know, we will provide a brief back story. They were attacked while on vacation in Vietnam which resulted in Tom suffering multiple stab wounds, and the both of them being burnt from acid thrown at them. I will include Tammy's story and news articles for your better understanding. 



This is so devastating and should never happen to anyone. Tammy and Tom are both very humble and hardworking people, super talented nail technicians in Port Coquitlam, BC. This is definitely life changing for them, not for the better. 

Currently, they are both admitted to the hospital. We don't know how long they will be there for, but this will be a lengthy recovery process. Tammy has reached out to the Embassy of Canada and they are currently assisting them with medical needs. However, Tom is in serious condition and they cannot provide much assistance for him due to him being a permanent resident in Canada and not a Canadian Citizen. 

We are in need of your help to raise money in order to cover their medical expenses. Please, please, please share their story to all your family and friends. This could happen to anyone. Let alone someone we love.

Hi Everyone,

I want to start off by thanking you all who have donated and have shared this with your friends and family. My heart is so full and am so grateful with all the support everyone has been providing.

Just wanted to update you on the current situation and what I know thus far. You all may have seen multiple articles from different media outlets and comments regarding their incident. We are unsure whether this was a targeted or random attack, as everyone has been discussing. Tammy contacted her travel insurance agency and they have been a huge help with providing them with the medical attention that they need. Although they did purchase travel insurance, there is only so much that is covered. All the donations made will be going towards expenses that will not be covered by their insurance and for their road to recovery.

Currently, Tammy and Tom are both admitted to a hospital in Thailand. Both their conditions are more serious than what was determined by the doctors in Vietnam. Tammy was given antibiotics at the time but was not thoroughly examined. She is currently being treated for her burns and possible damage to her left eye. Tom on the other hand, is in intensive care. Upon examining further into his injuries, the doctors discovered that his condition is much more severe than expected. He has been in and out of surgery. We are unsure about his eyes, as they are still being treated.

I understand that many of you would like to reach out to Tammy and Tom to send your wishes and prayers. However, I am hoping that everyone can be understanding during this time as they are overwhelmed and stressed. I will continue to keep you all posted once I receive new updates from them.
