I am Raymond Balakrishnan, 71 years young this year. I had my first heart attack in 2017, and went into a coma for more than 2 months. During the surgery, I had 10 episodes of my heart stopping with the longest been 20 minutes, but with God's grace I came back. In August last year, I had another heart attack and was in ICU for 10 days. No, I did not see flashbacks or the white light, many have already asked me.
I have benefitted from Assisi's inpatient care after my first heart attack, recovered well enough to go home, and continued to attend Day Care on weekdays while my children are at work. After a miraculous recovery from my second heart attack, I am happy to be back again with my friends at Assisi Day Care - my second home.
With my heart condition, I may go anytime. I just want to make good use of whatever time I have. Having benefitted from the good care at Assisi, I wish for more to know about Palliative care. Having recently published a short book of my story I would like to raise funds and awareness for Assisi through sharing of my story. As a token of appreciation, we will like to send a copy of my e-book to all donors' emails at the end of the campaign.
Please support my e-book and donate generously so that more patients are able to benefit from the care at Assisi. Thank you!

With Love
Raymond

About the Charity

Journey with us to support our needy patients with terminal illness and their caregivers. Assisi Hospice provides palliative care for patients and families that preserves their dignity and quality of life. Patients of any race, faith and financial position are cared for by our team of specialist doctors, nurses, allied health and pastoral care professionals. When faced with life limiting illnesses, our patients receive medical care, as well as psychosocial, emotional and spiritual care.

We provide care for patients across the continuum of Home Care, Inpatient and Day Care. This allows patients and family members to journey with a clinical team they are familiar with, and to receive care in the way that they need. Our six-storey purpose-built hospice provides a homely ambience with cosy spaces for patients and their loved ones. With 85 Inpatient beds, including specialised wards for Dementia Palliative Care and Paediatric Palliative Care, a Day Care Centre and the outreach of our Home Care team, we serve more than 2,000 patients a year.

Founded in 1969 by the Sisters of the Franciscan Missionaries of the Divine Motherhood (FMDM), we are a charity supported by donors, volunteers and corporate organisations who journey with us in our cause.
