"Our loving daughter, Yulanda Yee (just turned 28) has lost her second battle with lymphoma cancer on Feb 11/2010. She passed away at 6 p.m. in a palliative home on the second day after being transferred from Princess Margaret Hospital where she had many short and long stays.
She was only nine when first diagnosed with this disease. With unbelievable courage, she fought it for about one and a half to two years and was free for 18 years. With a vengeance, the disease came back in June 2009. It finally took her young life after months of furious combat.
I wish there are words to express my thanks and gratitude to my wife, Helen, who provided 24-hour personal-care, support, and encouragement during months of difficult times.
We also have much thanks for her sweetheart, Wayne, who fought alongside her to the end. It is him who gave Yulanda a worthy reason to live and the desire to beat this battle.
We cannot be over-grateful to our family (father, mother, brothers, sisters, cousins...) for their infinite physical and emotional support and encouragement.As parents of this shy girl, we were astonished by the number of friends she has."
