ACTNews, SOUTH JAKARTA –  A woman called Aksi Cepat Tanggap’s Medical Care line Services on Monday (9/27/2021), asking for help for her husband that had been bedridden for a week.

The medical team immediately asked her about her husband’s symptoms and conditions. Mr. J, the woman’s husband, has been suffering from Multiple Myeloma, a type of cancer that attacks plasma cells in the bone marrow, causing pain in the spine, ribs and pelvis.

ACT’s ambulance was immediately sent to his house in Pesanggrahan District of South Jakarta. The Humanity Medical Services team immediately checked his vital signs: body temperature, pulse, respiratory rate, and blood pressure.

“When we checked Mr. J’s condition, he was fully conscious. He had previously received chemotherapy, and he was unable to move his limbs,” said Humanity Medical Services Nurse Sodikun.

Fearing that Mr. J’s condition might get worse, the Humanity Medical Services Team, with permission from the patient's family, decided to refer him to Siloam Semanggi Hospital.
