Saving Tuptim

By Mike LNg

Tup Tim

Much thanks goes to James Goyder for this news. Kru Nai (Mr. Rattanachai Jadngooluem), a trainer at Tiger Muay Thai in Phuket has a7-month old daughter, Tuptim, who has been diagnosed with a Bilary Obstruction.

She is in need of a liver transplant which will cost 1.5 million Thai Baht (around $50,000). Though this initial fund has thus far been raised. Tuptim’s fund raising will continue to enable Tuptims parents to pay for the medication needed after surgery. This will cost around $1,000 a month for ten years, $120,000.

Nai earns around 10,000 Baht a month and simply cannot afford this. If you are interested in making a donation visit:

  1. fucking great article. shes a cutie. im never saying anything bad about dana white anymore. or at least ill now remember him as that guy who paid for the surgery….man that must have been great for the family. im gonna bookmark the donation page and donate when i can.

    • Dana White ponied up some cash and I suspect because Nai and father live in Phuket which seems the de facto training spot of choice for MMA guys wanting to learn Muay Thai.
