Saving “Daddy’s Girl”

When a simple cold turned to pneumonia, Shea Yee’s parents were devastated to learn she had a hole in her heart. Her father knew he could never make enough money in time to save her, but how could he say goodbye to his “daddy’s girl”? Read Transcript


Reporter: MR. SHAY

LOVED HIS DOCTOR, SHINLEE,

THE SECOND HE SAW HER.

SHE WAS ADORABLE.

I THOUGHT, I WANT TO GIVE MY

BABY A GOOD LIFE AND BE THE

BEST FATHER I COULD BE.

Terry: THE SHAYS NEVER

THOUGHT IN JUST SIX MONTHS

SHINLEE WOULD BE FIGHTING

FOR HER LIFE.

SHE GOT A VERY BAD COLD,

SO WE TOOK HER TO THE

DOCTOR.

WHERE THEY SAID SHE HAS A

WHOLE IN HER HEART AND

NEEDED SURGERY.

Terry: MR. SHAY GOT A

JOB AT A ROCK QUARRY,

WORKING 12 HOURS A DAY TO

RAISE MONEY FOR SURGERY FOR

SHINLEE.

EVERY DAY BEFORE I WENT

TO WORK, I KISSED MY BABY

GIRL GOOD-BYE.

IT WAS SO HARD TO LEAVE

HER.

SOMETIMES I COULD BARELY GO

ON, BUT I DID ANYWAY.

I FELT LIKE IF MY DAUGHTER

DIED, IT WOULD BE MY FAULT.

Terry: THEN SHINLEE GOT

PNEUMONIA.

SHE COUGHED ALL OF THE

TIME.

SHE COULD NOT EAT OR SLEEP.

IT BROKE MY HEART, AND I

WISHED THAT SOMEHOW I COULD

TAKE HER PAIN UPON MILE.

> MYSELF.

I HELD MY DAUGHTER AND I

SAID, I'M SORRY, MY BABY, I

DO NOT HAVE THE MONEY YET.

BUT I WILL KEEP TRYING.

Terry: SECRETLY,

MR. SHAY WORRIED HE WOULDN'T

MAKE ENOUGH MONEY IN TIME TO

SAVE HIS DAUGHTER'S LIFE.

SO IN DESPERATION, THE

COUPLE BROUGHT SHINLEE TO A

HOSPITAL IN THE CITY WHERE

THEY BEGGED FOR HELP.

A DOCTOR PUT THE COUPLE IN

CONTACT WITH CBN, AND WE

SAID WE WOULD BE GLAD TO

HELP PAY FOR SHINLEE'S HEART

SURGERY.

I TOLD HER, YOU'RE GOING

TO BE HEALTHY.

YOU'RE GOING TO LIVE.

Terry: A DOCTOR

REPAIRED THE HOLE IN

SHINLEE'S HEART, AND SHE

RECOVERED QUICKLY.

TO CELEBRATE, HER PARENTS

JUST THREW HER A BIG PARTY.

SHE GAINED TWO POUNDS IN

JUST ONE MONTH.

NOW SHE SLEEPS WELL, AND SHE

LEARNS A LOT, TOO.

I USED TO THINK THERE WAS

NO LOVE IN THIS WORLD, BUT

WHEN CBN HELPED US,

EVERYTHING CHANGED.

IT WAS LIKE THEY WERE FROM

HEAVEN.

NOW I'M THE HAPPIEST FATHER

IN THE WORLD.

THANK YOU FOR GIVING MY

DAUGHTER A NEW LIFE.

WE WILL NEVER FORGET YOUR

LOVE.
