GEORGE TOWN: Three families are appealing for help to finance their children's heart surgeries at the Gleaneagles Medical Centre here.


Ten-month-old Ng Shao Ern suffers from a ventricular septal defect which causes her to have poor appetite and slow weight gain.

She needs urgent surgery, costing about RM30,000.

Her father Ng Jia Chun, 26, operates a car repair workshop in Bukit Mertajam and earns RM1,800 per month while her mother, Khor Mong Sian, 20, is a housewife.

The family has agreed to contribute RM10,000 towards her daughter's surgery.

Meanwhile, three-year-old Teoh Yan Ru has a complex congenital heart disease. Her surgery costs around RM20,000.

Her father Teoh Chun Lai, 30, is a tailor in Sungai Petani, earning about RM1,500 per month while her mother, Teh Chin Chui, 27, is a housewife.

Ten-day-old Muhammad Azim Mohd Radzi suffers from a complex congenital heart disease and needs an urgent surgery which costs about RM45,000.

His father, Mohd Radzi Mohd Fadzil, 31, works as a factory printer in Bukit Minyak and earns RM1,160 monthly.

His mother, Suhana Samat, 27, is a production operator and earns RM640 per month.

They need to come out with RM45,000 for Muhammad's surgery.
