Hello family and friends! Our family appreciates everyone's calls and messages to check in on Mai-Anh's health. Her children, Laura and Frank, have created this page to keep all our loved ones updated in one place.
Many of you know mom was diagnosed with lung cancer 4 years ago. We've experienced caring, knowledgeable doctors and helpful treatments since then. Although mom was doing well and thriving for a while (traveling with family, taking art / exercise / nutrition classes, volunteering at the elementary school and meditation center, going on walks and playing badminton with friends), she experienced some complications on October 6, 2020 as she was having difficulty breathing.
Doctors found fluid around her lungs and concluded that abnormal cells must be pushing it there. She is currently recovering from surgery to remove the fluid, and we will post updates on how she's doing below (:
We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement.
Although both the hospital and our household are being cautious about in-person visits, if you would like to send Mai-Anh a personal note such as a card or digital message, please contact Laura and she will make sure Mai-Anh receives it.
