How You Can Help

This page is for members of the community who would like to offer help and support to Dr. Theresa Wang and her husband, David Chen.  On July 30, 2011, after 8 1/2 months away, Dr. Wang returned to a wonderful welcome and we look forward to her ongoing healing at home in Waikoloa.  She will continue with rehabilitation therapy for her various injuries and will be heading to Honolulu on a regular basis to see medical specialists.  If there is something specific you would like to do, or would like to be contacted once we have a clearer understanding of their needs, please leave a comment below and we will get in touch with you. Thank you.

  2. Dear Terri and David,
    I am a QMC employee and I have been following your story since the day of the accident. I was visiting the Big Island and had arrived a 8 AM and traveled down the same road as Terri that same morning.

    I regret not meeting Terri while she was at QMC, but I wanted to respect her privacy.

    Please know that you and your family have been in my prayers daily.


  3. Thank you David for sharing this ordeal with the rest of the world. Your blogs/comments were so positive & heart warming! I am glad to hear that you and your wife are on your way to truly enjoy what life has to offer! Your wisdom, patience and kindness has certainly helped this world not lose faith in humanity.
