In 𝐉𝐚𝐧𝐮𝐚𝐫𝐲 𝟐𝟎𝟏𝟏, Chelsea was diagnosed with bone cancer
at the tender age of 13
. She recovered before suffering a relapse at the age of 16. A woman of strong faith, she never let her guard down and continued striving for academic excellence by scoring in both her PMR and SPM examinations, despite 𝐧𝐨𝐭 𝐞𝐯𝐞𝐧 𝐛𝐞𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐚𝐛𝐥𝐞 𝐭𝐨 𝐰𝐚𝐥𝐤!
In 𝐒𝐞𝐩𝐭𝐞𝐦𝐛𝐞𝐫 𝟐𝟎𝟏𝟗, USM held its breath as it received news that our dearest Chelsea was diagnosed with cancer, again. She was bombarded with gifts and messages of love and support from the whole USM community, many of whom paid her visits and were awe-inspired by her sheer 𝐜𝐨𝐮𝐫𝐚𝐠𝐞 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐰𝐢𝐥𝐥 𝐭𝐨 𝐥𝐢𝐯𝐞.
On the 𝟔𝐭𝐡 𝐨𝐟 𝐀𝐩𝐫𝐢𝐥 𝟐𝟎𝟐𝟎, we lost the purest soul in her 10-year long battle against cancer. Sekretariat Sukarelawan India
will be ever grateful for her contribution as a dedicated volunteer of our community.
To commemorate Chelsea, the beautiful person she was and the beautiful life she lived, 𝐒𝐒𝐈 inaugurated April 15, her birthday as Chelsea Day; an annual celebration of love and life.
On the 1st Anniversary of Chelsea Day
, we have organized a fundraiser to conduct a special programme for childhood cancer patients
in and around Penang. It would mean the world to us if you would consider giving us your fair share to help us buy these children gifts, goodies
and provide them with the necessary emotional support
they desperately need during this pandemic.
Your every dollar would help dozens of children of cancer develop the strength and will to continue their fight to live!
