We are setting up this fundraiser for Lilian and Abi, mom and daughter who are both undergoing treatments for their medical conditions.
In April 2015, Lilian, 55, a mother of three, was diagnosed with Papillary Carcinoma (Right Thyroid Gland) and Hashimoto's Thyroiditis ( Left Thyroid Gland) which brought her to a Total Thyroidectomy in July 2015. Since then she has had a series of Radioactive Iodine (RAI) Therapy (three sessions) and two Total Body Scans, with another scan scheduled this coming April. These medical procedures in the Philippines are quite expensive, RAI costs PhP80000/session, (roughly Php400000 or $8000 total expenses) not including the meds and travel expenses from Surigao del Sur to Davao City and Lilian's incoming tests and body scan.These have drastically drained the family resources, even more so as Lilian, a secondary school principal, had to leave her post last year on disability retirement because of her condition.
Lilian's 25 year-old eldest and only daughter Abi, also had to undergo lab tests from August-October last year, for then undefined symptoms. She was finally diagnosed in November with Nodular Sclerosis Classical Hodgkin Lymphoma (NSCHL). This brave fighter has now undergone 5 sessions of chemotherapy out of 12 (6 cycles), and is scheduled for a series of repeat tests in June. Expenses for Abi's laboratory tests, procedures, confinement and travel have already reached Php410,000 ($8200). From hereon, we would like to ask your kind and generous hearts to reach out to these two beautiful souls of a mom and daughter in their journey. This fundraiser will be a big help to Lilian and Abi's family, to defray their expenses and other future medical procedures. They both have a million reasons to fight for and they need our prayers and financial help for them to win the battle.
