My name is Azaleo Budok and I am Anne's' friend.
I feel compelled to tell her story and help them and his family in any way that I can.
Below is a post taken from Anne's facebook status.
Our family is going thru a lot..for 1 month now my brother is confined at spmc due to tumor in stomach. He was operated last weekend. Ordeal was never easy for us. I got hospitalized last july and was ian ICU for 2wks, again last august just weeks after i got hospitalized again due to pheumonia..right after few weeks here i am again tested positive for covid. There were times when we do not know how to make both ends meet..my siblings sometimes got so weak where to get resources. Today we only have 3 kids left at home ages 6, 8 & 10..they were only given food by whoever can because nobody is allowed to get near them as quarantine protocols. Financially it's drowning. But we appraciate those who have extended their help be it monetary or any means of help. We are thankful to those who lend us money so we can sustain our daily needs. I am even most grateful for the generousity of my company..i am most appreciative to those who send their prayers. We are facing so much trials recently but believe me, u will never know what we r going thru unless u encounter it urself,of course how i wish nobody would come to deal something like this. We appreciate friends who wish us well but when u do please do not try to say as if we lack prayers because u just never know how we keep our faith just to make it day my day. Without the grace of our Lord,we would not make it this day. We are just praying for these battles to end.i believe that the Lord will never forsake us and that His love will help us endure all the pain. There are people that He uses to send His help and for that I am deeply blessed. Stay safe everyone!
