My mother is a single mother.my father was died 2007.I am only one child of them.Now i am a stusent.I read in class 10.That's why don't have any earning source in our family.She needs to urgently continue her care but is no longer covered by the Hospital Authority due to her termination. Please consider donating or helping us to share her story to raise much needed funds for her treatment.
“Reason for termination (if any): Diagnosed with Cervical Cancer”
My Mother was given recommended sick leave January 25 – February 14 and then February 16- February 18th, during which time her cancer was confirmed by biopsy as an advanced stage three cervical adenocarcinoma.My Mother has a very strong case under the law and has sought advice to pursue those claims with the Labour Department and the Equal Opportunities Commission. She will seek just compensation under the law. But the law is not adequate to help Baby Jane recieve the medical care she urgently needs now.My Mother was entitled to live in Hong Kong under the terms of her employment visa. As her employer has wrongfully terminated her contract, she has lost her entitlement to live in Hong Kong and use the Hospital Authority system. She cannot stay in Hong Kong and fight her claims without cancer care. We have obtained support to pursue an extended visa while she fights her claim, but this visa will not allow her to access government paid care. Her employer was also delinquent in paying her wages, so she has no money at all and is relying on us for support for her and her five children at home.
No other option.
We have explored options for care back in the Philippines, but given the advanced stage of my mother’s cancer,even a few weeks or months delay to enroll in the government hospital back in the Philippines isn’t an option. She is from a remote village where no care is available at all, so she would have to move to Manila, with no resources, no family and no funds. As her wages are overdue from her employer and we are currently supporting her. Due to her cancer diagnosis, she cannot be hired by a new employer. The Hospital Authority in Hong Kong has recommend an immediate combination of radiation and chemotherapy given her cancer is already stage 3. We are raising funds to cover the cost of her care in Hong Kong while she fights her discrimination and wrongful termination claims, continue to provide for her children back home, and to help her children obtain passports to come visit her while getting care. Once she her treatment is complete, if possible, we will work to place her with a new family as she is eager to go back to work.
Every Little Bit Helps! UPDATED
My Mother and my family are incredibly grateful for any support. We are often asked what My Mother's care and her family support will cost.We are not sure yet.My mother's cancer is advanced and is currently not operable. If they are able to shrink her tumor such that surgery is possible, that will be a major expense. We are currently incredibly blessed to have most of her care funded through the amazing organizations below. She is going to Adventist Hospital five days a week now and working with a great team of doctors and care providers.
I will provide a full accounting of any funds donate for anyone who asks. For anyone wishing to donate to registered charity for a tax-deductible donation or as part of planned giving program, please contact the following amazing organizations who are actively helping My mother.
The Patient Care Foundation -http://www.patientcarefoundation.com.hk/donate/. The incredible physicians at this organization were instrumental in securing and coordinating care. They continue to be a resource for her primary care needs and have some great programs to help others like Baby Jane who do not have access to care.
