Thony (Elodie Yung)

Back in Manila, the Cambodian-born Thony was a doctor, had a husband named Marco, and a beautiful life. But, with her son Luca having an immunodeficiency disorder, one that could not be treated in the Philippines, she was borderline coerced to come to the United States to find a donor and for him to get treatment.

Unfortunately, the donor match which drew her to the US fell through, and she has waited for months hoping she’d get the call that could save her son’s life. Till then, she has lived with her sister-in-law and her two kids, and with being unable to practice medicine in the United States, she cleans to make ends meet.

5-year-old Luca has a rare immune deficiency disorder. Because of that, and the lack of bone marrow donors back home, especially who match someone Cambodian and Filipino, his mother, Thony, brought him to the United States. Her hopes are that he’ll, once more, get called about a donor, to help treat his core issues, and she’ll find better care for him in the US than even she, a doctor, can procure back home.
