BPAN HERO: MIKE BUI
NOMINATED BY: Tram Thai, Wife
Mike took care of Nhi - our daughter, a Bpanner, for 6 months, by himself in Vietnam when I was away in Canada for graduate school. Nhi was only 2.5 years old and had less mobility and was completely non-verbal at the time.
Even after reuniting in Canada six months later, Mike continued to care for Nhi daily and he has done a fabulous job in providing Nhi with training to help her improve both gross and fine motor skills. As a result, she learned how to walk at the age of 3 and say "Daddy". He continues to be Nhi's main care taker while I continue in my studies.
