INDIEGOGO CAMPAIGNS IN S'PORE
Ms Jocelyn Suarez, 23, chalked up huge hospital bills after being diagnosed with Stevens-Johnson Syndrome, a serious skin disorder.
Her family's goal was US$30,000 (S$39,000), but they raised US$48,266.
Miss Sarah Emmanuel, 24, and her sister Deborah, 25, turned to Indiegogo to raise money for their mother's funeral expenses.
The divorcee had been given the all-clear after a tough battle with ovarian cancer, but suffered a relapse last year.
The sisters wanted to raise US$9,000, but ended up with US$32,161 at the end of the campaign.
In both cases, it is not known what the extra money raised was used for.
