Which one will you choose?

YT Yeung have been running the campaign since the beginning, trying to gather information and help patients with rare disease who cannot afford the expensive medication. Many of them choose to end their life unwillingly as they are unable to pay for the high price tag medicine that suppose to ease and cure them. Some of them struggles physically but mentally want to survive.

With the same core intention, Ip Ching knew right from the bait that the government and health department are not impressed with YT’s campaign due to the high cost that will drive up the budget of the entire nation.

She came out with other campaign which was connected to her late boyfriend’s wish, to set up a Research Facility in Hong Kong and develop medicine themselves. This sounds like a far fetch idea but she prove that it is workable and will be a revenue driven platform in a long run.

YT’s idea will immediately benefit affected citizens whereas Ip Ching’s campaign is for a long run. Sounds like the best of both worlds, but only one will be accepted and executed.
