Carolyn is now in peace.


1970 – 2009

At 3pm on April 23, 2009, Carolyn was set free from the suffering of this world, with her Mother & brother, Uncle & Aunt by her side.

The past two and a half year has been such a physical and emotional roller coaster for Carolyn, her family, her friends,  and everyone who became part of her life during this time.

Miracles happened when there were seemingly no hopes.  Dreams were dashed when they were the only chance you’ve got.  Friends were made.  Lives were saved.

Its over now.  And Carolyn is now at a better place.

Funeral will take place in Vancouver, Canada on May 7th.  If you would like to attend, please RSVP by clicking here for funeral detail, or visit in the coming week.

For most of you who will not be able to attend, please do this for Carolyn one last time by forwarding the following link to five close friends, and making sure everyone of them become a bone marrow donor.

  2. In memory of Carolyn, i wish to pay tribute to her great mom, Madellina and good brother, Patrick aswell.

  3. […] Carolyn is now in peace, after fighting for her life, and others fighting for her life from leukemia. I didn’t know her directly, but she is a friend of a friend. I’ve written about her in May and June of last year, joining in a campaign to encourage people to donate to their local bone marrow registry. Valiant efforts were made worldwide in this regard to boost the numbers of donors within the Asian population and find a match for Carolyn. After many registration drives on her behalf, I held so much hope for her chances. […]

  4. Rest in peace…

  7. Rest in peace, Carolyn. You don’t know me, but I am touched by your courage, your smile, and your actions (while you are sick!) to help & save many more people, and to show them a way to help & save others. May your family and dear friends be blessed by you and be given strength & hope to carry on, always.

    Sincerely from Hong Kong.

  8. I only knew you through what I have read. Your courage, strength and determination touched my heart greatly. After reading about your campaign, you encouraged me to sign on as a donor last year. Thank you Carolyn for showing the world the humbleness of your heart, compassion for others and strength in character. You gave a great fight and may you now find rest with Jesus.

    My most sincere condolences to family & friends of this incredible woman.
