※ Pyeong-ahn's wish came true using the amount donated to the EDM anniversary donation box.
I want to become healthy again.
Pyeong-ahn Lee was diagnosed with acute lymphocytic leukemia after a close examination at a large hospital due to persistent high fever and lethargy in May 2018. Since then, he has been undergoing continuous chemotherapy.
As a result of his long battle with illness, his relationships with his friends are gradually falling apart. He is having a difficult time as much that he wants to give up his life due to the side effects of the chemotherapy drugs he was taking, such as depression, rapid weight gain, hyperlipidemia, and diabetes.
Pyeong-ahn had a lot of worries before he made a wish.
His first wish was to meet Pastor Ki-seong Yoo of the Good Shepherd Church, who gave him strength through his words on YouTube whenever he was having a hard time while fighting the disease. And the second wish was for Pyeong-ahn, who dreams of becoming a CCM singer-songwriter, to hold a Christmas performance with CCM minister Chanmi Cho.
However, as Pyeong-ahn's depression worsened and the Covid-19 situation got worsened, it became difficult to arrange the meeting and performance. After thinking about it over and over again, Pyeong-ahn's final wish was to recover his deteriorated health due to depression and binge eating caused by the side effects of anti-cancer drugs. To fulfill Pyeong-ahn's wish to restore his healthy body and spirit, it was decided to find mentors and assistants. To help him regain a healthy body and spirit by exercising healthily, we looked for a fitness center near Pyeong-ahn's house and recruited a PT trainer.
The day when Pyeong-ahn's wishes came true
To celebrate his wish day, Pyeong-ahn invited family members and mentors to hold wish day.
First, Pyeong-ahn expressed his gratitude by delivering the certificate written by him to his parents and sisters.
And Pyeong-ahn received a one-year fitness PT pass and a tailored T-shirt to wear while exercising. At that, he started with size XL, but it was the time when he decided to work out hard until could wear size L and M.
Lastly, through the wish balloon, Pyeong-ahn was cheered for his hard work, and he flew his wishes in the ballon to the sky to make a light start.
[ Volunteer Seonah Kang’s thoughts on Wish Day ]
It was the hardest wish day due to Covid-19, but it was more meaningful because we were able to finish it safely.
Pyeong-ahn's emotional ups and downs were too severe, and there were many difficulties such as crises and unexpected emergencies during the meeting with the volunteers, but I will pray and support earnestly that Pyeong-ahn recovers his physical and spiritual health so that the hard work of many people and the foundation was not in vain
[ Pyeong-ahn's thank you letter ]
These are notes and gifts prepared by Pyeong-ahn for the volunteer family.
It was a difficult time of preparation, but through wish day, I wish Pyeong-ahn would overcome the difficulties on his own and became physically and spiritually healthy. I cheer for him to see healthy Pyeong-ahn a year later!
