THE STORY:

Ling is 30 years old, an aspiring chef, small business owner, weight-lifting enthusiast, and lover of life. Ling has persevered through incredible challenges in his life. His parents were killed by the Shining Path when he was only five years old, and he was raised by his siblings outside of Tarapoto, Peru. Ling was recently diagnosed with tuberculosis which he contracted from an infected room mate in Lima. About a month later, he was diagnosed with two tumors next to his lungs. Luckily they caught them early and they are benign and operable. He has had to quit his job and his cooking certification program. Peru is a country with Multi-drug Resistant TB, and so it will take at least 6 months of intensive treatment for Ling to be cured. On April 22, Ling will undergo an operation to remove the tumors from his lungs. Ling needs financial help to pay for his operation, support his ongoing medical care, food and living expenses while he is unable to work.

A loved one of mine is currently experiencing seemingly insurmountable medical expenses. The community showed us amazing love and support; complete strangers, even, reached out to help us. The waiting, wondering, worrying, hoping, has been insane, but with the mind boggling support we received, it finally looks like this painful time is coming to an end. I hope the same for you; nothing is worse than seeing a loved one in pain, and not being able to stop it. 5 years ago
