Noel Pano, the father was diagnosed with Rectal Adenocarcinoma (rectal cancer). For the first couple of months we have had been fighting this bout really well. With medical support from PhilHealth, they managed to get over his chemo-radiation with minimal hurdles. Also, with the help of people from the Philippine General Hospital (PGH), the old man eased his way through a surgery called Laparoscopic Abdominoperineal resection (Lap-APR). And with his Lap-APR, which closed his rectum and relocates his intestine to his stomach. He still have to go through his IV- chemotherapy to complete all the tranches for his full recovery.
The youngest, Rose Ann who is the breadwinner of the family is one of the integral parts for this healing process. But, alas, she was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL), an illness commonly diagnosed with children. With this challenge, she can no longer work and their finances has really hit the bottom. Their family have already approached institutions to help us with medications and lab tests. Queues after queues after queues, we tried our best to get their help and managed to get help for just one session/cycle of the chemotherapy.
And with this, we appeal to your kind hearts to spare money that you deem to not hurt your finances. Thank you very much.
