Little Charmaine Lim is only 4 years old this year, but has been recently been diagnosed with stage 4 (cancer) neuroblastoma, a kind of cancer that occurs in infants and kids, and is fighting for her life.

At a tender age, she is currently receiving chemotherapy at NUH. Despite the treatments, the odds of Charmaine's survival stands at a slim 20 per cent, according to her medical report. There is an alternative treatment called 3F8, which Charmaine's NUH medical report noted, could help boost her chances of survival to as much as 40 to 50 per cent. But this treatment is available only at the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York. It's also very costly - US$350,000, which is slightly more than $500,000.

For your easy reference, Charmaine's NUH Medical Report is attached (downloaded from her website at ).
