Subject: 无锡协会和江大北美校友会呼吁书 --紧急帮助陶志英家庭

无锡协会和江大北美校友会呼吁书

各位老乡及校友:

一个月前,来自无锡的老乡张桦和丈夫陶志雄抵达多伦多,探望在加拿大读书的女儿。很不幸的是陶志雄先生突然脑溢血,经医院抢救,虽然已脱离危险,但却欠下了巨额账单(约10万加元)。此外,返回中国还需支付至少1.5万加元。

张桦夫妇在国内是普通工薪雇员,家庭收入仅为9000人民币。由于陶志雄先生原先身体一直很健康,这次短期来加拿大没有购买保险。上述的巨额账单及返回中国的费用,对张桦家庭实在是极大的灾难。无奈之下,病人的妻子张桦向老乡和校友们发出了求助信。

在此,我们无锡协会和江大北美校友会特向广大会员呼吁:伸出你们的援助之手,帮张桦家庭一把。张桦家庭的联系方式(注:捐款可直接寄给陶先生的妹妹Zhiying Tao 陶志英):

附:病人的妻子张桦的求助信

加拿大无锡协会,江南大学校友会:

我-张桦于9月27日同丈夫陶志雄一起抵达多伦多。因女儿在加拿大读书,我们利用国内国庆节长假来加拿大探望她。

我们原计划2周后返回,不幸的是, 在9月30日早晨6:30分陶志雄突然抽搐失控,有救护车送Brampton的Willium Osler Health Centre就治,确诊得了脑溢血。但由于该院无救治条件,后转送到Mississauga的Trillium Health Centre 急救。他因脑动脉瘤破裂引起大出血,当天(9月30日)因为脑中已经大量积血水,作了脑溢血引流手术;10月2做了脑血管修补手术;10月3日出现严重脑水肿。之后一星期脑水肿有所消退,脑积血大部分排出,10月11日脑引流管已拔出,且让他自住呼吸。十月15日从 ICU 重症监护室搬至CCU特别护理室。由于医院的原因,于十月22日把病人转回到Brampton的Willium Osler Health Centre治疗,但他至今仍处于半昏迷状态。至今已产生的住院及检查费用已达7万加元,加上医生的费用总共已达10万加元。

陶志雄在国内是无锡电信局普通员工,每月基本工资1800元加上奖金,月收入约4000元人民币,我是无锡移动公司普通员工,每月基本工资3000元加上奖金等,月收入5000多元人民币。由于供女儿来加读书几年,家中存款不多。由于他在国内身体一直很好,所以这次来加拿大探望女儿,我们都没买保险。现在我及女儿尽力承受着这个沉重的打击,面对每天的巨额费用以及不可预期的后续治疗费用,家里实在无力负担。

特向贵会提出紧急帮助申请。

谢谢!
