The family of Priya Gao Sheng Lee are uniting to raise money for her funeral and burial expenses.

In September of 2011, my sister & brother in law found out they were expecting their fourth child, estimated to arrive in May of 2012. What excited them even more was the fact that they were expecting their first little girl. Unfortunately, on February 2nd, 2012, Baby Priya Gao Sheng Lee was delivered (at 25 weeks gestational age) by emergency c-section. She weighed 1 lb 2 oz and was 11 1/2 inches long. She had difficulty breathing and had to be put on a mechanical ventilator/oscillator and has been on it ever since. She was diagnosed with Chronic Lung Disease and is currently located at Children's Hospital in the NICU. Her medical bills have reached well over $1 million dollars. She recently had her trach and g-tube surgery on June 14th,2012. Just to make ends meet every month, Chia has had to pull funds out of her 401k. Given a 50% chance of survival, she has proven to be a strong fighter every time it was believed that she wouldn't make it past the next 24 hours. Please help support Priya in her battle of a lifetime! Every little donation counts, even if it comes in the form of a simple prayer. Thank you so much for your generosity and God bless! All funds raised will go directly to Priya's incurring medical expenses & for accommodations for her when she is able to return home. If you would rather donate by check or money order, please email me at For more info, please visit Prayers For Priya on Facebook.


UPDATE -- JULY 31ST, 2012

I am deeply saddened to report that Priya Gao Sheng Lee passed away early this morning.  She was a strong fighter and was loved by many many people.  She will forever be in our hearts.  We have changed this fundraiser from raising funds for medical expenses to funeral expenses.  For those of you who do not know, my brother in law (Priya's father) just lost his father the beginning of this month and now Priya.  Two funerals in less than a month.  We are devastated and funeral expenses are no joke.  Please donate and help us put our little girl to rest.  Thank you for all your prayers and donations.

May you rest in peace baby girl.  Priya Gao Sheng Lee 02/02/2012 - 07/31/2012
