On behalf of the Kentucky Association of Chinese American Professionals
(KYACAP), I would like to call for your help for our dear fellow UK student
and violinist, Duo-He (Victor). As you may have heard, Victor is currently
suffering a seizure disorder that may require risky brain surgery. Victor
is a talented violinist and has done a lot for this community. He has
performed many times for our association's events and we all enjoyed his
beautiful music. His sickness has posed a severe threat to his health,
study and career and he is now in a very difficult situation. He has been
working very hard to support himself since the University provides little
financial support for him. Now his parents are here to help him to cope
with this critical time. His friends have been doing their best to help
Victor but greater needs are ahead. Victor has to quit his job of teaching
kids playing violin because of his sickness, leaving him with no income
to cover the living expenses for him and his parents. His expected surgery
and medicine will result in a huge financial burden. I urgently ask everyone
in the community to reach out and help him and his family in every way
you can. The following are the things that they need at the present time:
* Financial support. Any amount will be appreciated. Please make the check
payable to KYACAP with a note "Victor Fund" at the bottom. You
can mail the check to:
PO BOX 910186
Lexington KY 40591-0186
You can also drop it off to any board
member or officer who is closest to you. If you can
not afford to help now or you are out of town for a long time, you can pledge
now by returning an e-mail to me with a dollar number and pay later. The
association will temporarily use its fund to cover your pledge.
* Although not preferred, food and other daily living items are also welcome.
You can contact me for details on this.
* Victor's father can teach violin and his mother can teach singing, dancing
and Chinese. If your children can benefit from their service, please let
them or us know.
We are loving people. When one of our brothers encounters a major life
obstacle, I am sure all of us will be eager to help. If all of us show
love to Victor, he will know we all stand behind him to help him overcome
the life challenges and tomorrow's life will be more beautiful! Should
you have any questions, please contact us at
Thank you for your support!
