Support for NUS Student With Leukemia

A student of the National University of Singapore, Ms Zhang Xiaoou (Matric Card Number: U052101M) has recently been diagnosed with Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia (ALL), a life-threatening disease that will post a staggering SGD$400,000 medical bill to her middle-income family.

She is a 24 year old Chinese scholar in her final year of study in Faculty of Science with excellent academic result. In her undergraduate education, she was placed several times on the Dean’s List which is awarded to the top 5% students only.

Xiaoou is also an active student leader in various schools and social activates. She was the Vice Chairperson of NUS Students’ Union Welfare Standing Committee and volunteered as a teaching assistant for community service project – “GIVE”.

She is currently undergoing treatment in National University Hospital and she will need a prolonged period of chemotherapy for treatment of her leukemia. Her medical expenses are estimated to be SGD$400,000, with each treatment session around $50,000. Her mother is unemployed and her dad earns a monthly income of SGD$400.
