Mr Hui Yick-chi’s 34-month-old son was diagnosed with cancer in May 1986. The child went into remission after being treated at the Prince of Wales Hospital.
In June 1989, five months before its inauguration, Mr Hui joined the Children’s Cancer Foundation under the recommendation of one of its founders, Dr. Lam Tai-kwan, and began his work for child cancer patients. In all these years, he has been Chairman of CCF’s Finance and Accounts Committee, looking after accounting affairs of the foundation.
Mr Hui worked in the accounting, auditing and company secretarial fields for numerous accounting and Japanese firms until November 1993 when he started his own accounting business, offering his expertise to all sectors in society.
