Ramadhan Al-Mubarak

Hello guy! How are you today?

The month of Ramadhan starts next week, ie, Monday (1.8.2011). It means Muslims will fast from dawn to dusk for a whole month until Syawal to celebrate Hari Raya Aidilfitri.

Ramadhan is the month where Muslims call it as 'My Month'. First of all is because, this is the month that will appear once in a year. Second of all, many people especially Muslims will do a lot of 'Amal in this month because a lot of rewards will await for these people. Third, because only GOD knows your pray, no matter who you are, rich, poor, and so on.

There are many goodies that are found only once a year. One is the Pasar Ramadhan. The Pasar Ramadhan will normally sell food for Iftar purpose. One for sure is the food.

To all Muslims out there, no matter where you are in this world, ‘SELAMAT BERPUASA’. I hope to fill this blog with lots of Ramadhan goodies, so do visit when you have berbuka puasa!

Why I need to go to US

Hello guys! How are you out there? It has been 2 days I sat home, with MC and EL for last days.

I have decided to go to U.S to do the surgery because of my future, their experience, their expertise and also to minimise risk. The surgeon and his team give me a support letter from House Clinic.

Second reason why I need to go to US is because I will be subject to multiple surgeries if the surgery is done in Malaysia. I have referred my case to most neurosurgeons in Malaysia, Singapore, Russia, Japan, especially in Kuala Lumpur in order to get the second opinion. I gave them my CD's, MRI's report and did ask them the cost incurred for this type of surgery. Most of them give me the answer I must go for surgery and we try to remove the tumor as possible. What about the risk after the surgery? No answer for it guys. At the same time, some of the neurosurgeons did not give me their answer. Guys, the answer is not convincing to people like me because I try to minimise risk, future cost and all I think is about my future.

Every surgery especially in HUKM, will cost me about RM33K-35K. I have incurred the first bill already, and the balance of RM6k is already deducted from my salary. Now, there will be second surgery, by the same doctor and at the same place. There will be a lot of consequences that might happen to me in future. Some of the consequences I have to bear it for the rest of my life and I have already written it in my health facts.

I did explain to my mom why I need to go to US and do the operation. The doctor there is very focus in this case. I search the name and thanks God help me, I found Dr Rick Friedman and his name was also suggested by a friend of mine, ie, Yvonne Foong. There can be a lot of consequences in future and risks associated with it if I do it here. I try to minimise the risk as possible and in order to do it, I must go to US. My mom said to discuss it with me. I have made my decision guys.

I am afraid to tell you guys what I am facing now. I never realised the consequences of delaying the surgery and most of the consequences are in front of me. The doctor has warned me if I delay the operation. Sometimes I cough when I drink, I can just eat a slimy food in order to help the food to go down to my stomach. Sometimes, I have trouble in breathing, which I myself don't realise it. I feel my walking and balancing are not good as before. When I'm at home, I'll do some exercises. And when I didn't wear any shoes, I try to walk on a straight line but I cannot.

Last Sunday, I met Yvonne Foong at her house, a fellow member who is also a brain tumor patient and also a neurofibromatosis 2 patient, is also willing to help me to raise fund. You also can read about her through her blog at The surgery that I plan to do will commence on this September or October, if I get enough fund. Yvonne is also raising fund for her to go to NIH, US. Help Yvonne and myself.

Teacher needs RM150,000 for brain tumour surgery in US


Wednesday, July 6th, 2011 11:56:00
SYAHIDAH: Hopes to go to the US for surgery

AMPANG: Lecturing at a private college gives Syahidah Ishak much pleasure but things changed when she was diagnosed with brain tumour a year ago.

"I love to share my knowledge with students but I can no longer carry on teaching," said the Klang-born Syahidah, 33, who requires funds to undergo surgery abroad.

"I first had hearing problems two years ago but did not think much about it until I lost the ability to hear from my right ear."

Initially, she thought her right ear was clogged and tried to clean it up but that did not help.

"I then borrowed a friend's earphone to listen to music and that's when I realised I had become deaf in my right ear," she said.

Syahidah, who stays in Ampang, underwent medical check-up last July only to learn the awful truth.

"Tests showed I had stage 3 tumour growing in my brain. I did not want to reveal that to anybody and when my parents found out, I apologised for not wanting them to worry," she said, adding that her parents are both pensioners.

"Since then, my family, friends and students have been giving me moral support, including blogger Yvonne Foong who suffers from neurofibromatosis.

On Oct 13, Syahidah underwent surgery at Hospital Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (HUKM) at a cost of RM33,800.

"But the surgeons managed to remove only 2.4cm of the 3.8cm tumour," she said, adding that she still owes them RM6,000, after her insurers and employers paid RM27,000.

"Rather than being subjected to multiple operations here to remove the remaining tumour, I plan to undergo surgery at a hospital in the United States where Dr Rick Friedman, an American surgeon who specialises on ear problems, had once successfully removed a 4cm tumour in a four-hour operation. I am grateful to Foong for recommending Friedman to me."

Syahidah said having the surgery in the US will cost her US$50,000 (RM150,000).

"My medical coverage does not include treatment overseas and the National Cancer Council Malaysia (Makna) classified my case as non-cancerous and could not help me," she said.

"However, doctors here told me my remaining tumour is still dangerous and if untreated it could grow and affect my other ear and also sense of body balance."

Syahidah, who's single and the only daughter among four siblings, had originally intended to go to the US last month but has raised only RM5,000 so far.

"If I have sufficient funds, I want to undergo surgery in the US by September," she said, adding that she has resorted to selling T-shirts, umbrellas and night lamps all adored with the apple motif.

"Since last July I have been worried sick and unable to sleep properly. I have problems closing my right eye and have to cover the eye with a patch."
