Our family met Maggie in late January. She was one of our adoption guides for the week we spent in Guangzhou. She greeted us with an open smile and a bounce in her step.
We only knew her for a week, but her patience, helpfulness, diligence and grace made an impact on our lives. She worked tirelessly to walk our adoption travel group through each and every detail, as she has done for countless adoptive families since year 2000. She cared for us well.
We are heartbroken today to receive an email from the founders of our adoption agency telling us that Maggie is struggling for her life. Her situation is dire. Please pray for this dear young woman, her precious newborn daughter, and their family.
Dear CCAI Families,
We’re writing to you today because your family has been touched by our wonderful CCAI Guangzhou representative Maggie Pan. On June 9, six months pregnant, Maggie checked herself into a hospital as a result of breathing difficulties. Two days later she was diagnosed with late-term stomach, liver and lung cancers.
Yesterday, doctors delivered her baby via C-section in order to save the baby’s life. At around 10:00 am on July 2, her baby girl Hope was born, more than three months premature but with a strong heartbeat. Hope weighs only 1.8 pounds.
Doctors then immediately operated on Maggie and removed as many tumors as they could. Almost 24 hours have now passed, but she still has not yet woken up. Doctors have informed her family to prepare for the worst.
Baby Hope is in intensive care, fighting for her life…
Maggie joined CCAI in 2000 and has provided incredible service to more than 1,000 CCAI families like yours. Will you join us in prayer during this very sad and difficult time for Maggie and her family?
We have established a Hope for Maggie Fund to help with Maggie and her daughter’s medical costs. Donations of any amount are needed and much appreciated.
