I am knocking at everyone's heart to please Donate and/or Share this fundraising campaign for everyone to see and possibly share a little portion of their blessing.
I have Psoriasis accompanied with Psoriatic Arthritis covering almost 100% of my body. Having this condition has been such a struggle for me... Physically, emotionally and financially.
Physically, Waking up and getting up everyday is a real struggle! there are times, Like what I experience right now, when my flare ups would cause me so much pain which would prevent me from going to work. My daily routine would usually include an hour and a half of shower, putting on lotions and medications and getting dressed.
Emotionally, my condition has taken up what was left with my self esteem. Flareups would usually cause a lot of stares and people would usually avoid me because of how I look. Because of this, I stay at home most of the time avoiding to go out and socialize just so nobody would stare.
Financially, this condition has drained my savings real fast! Psoriasis is not covered most of the health card here in our country so all treatments and medications are charged to my personal savings. Medications can be quite expensive as well with small ointments that usually last about a day and a half would cost almost P400.00. Phototherapy sessions are quite expensive as well - a session that would usually last a maximum of 10 minutes and a minimum of 1 minute would cost P800+.
I have tried a lot of treatments and medications but none has worked so far. Now, my doctor has decided to try another treatment for me. This new treatment has resulted positive effects to some psoriatic patients who have used that so we are hoping it would result positively for me too. For 5 weeks, I will be injected a medication called SCAPHO. This will be injected to me twice (2x) a week. The cost of this injection is P16,100.00 per syringe which would cost me P32,200.00 per week. The total amount of the whole treatment would be Php 161,000.00 for the whole 5 weeks treatment (please see the treatment protocol below).
Please help me get well and experience a psoriasis free life even for just a few years. I would want to experience being able to go out wearing shorts and shirts with NO stares and no judgements at all. Please help me fund for my medications.
Thank you and Good day :)
