This is what I call my line of hope πŸ™. The dot on the left represents the normal life, the other end is the end of life and then the vertical line is where I am with cancer, my surgical onco has commited that we can move it further left so I can live a normal life. I’m so glad I met this amazing doctor. My prayers are being answered. I will be undergoing surgery next month. πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™There is hope! πŸ˜ŠπŸ€—πŸ™πŸ’ͺ

I would like to mention Estella and Dan for helping me find the right surgeon. God bless you all! πŸ€—

Hello everyone, my name is Jessie Rayos, 28. August 5, 2019, I was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer called Pseudomyxoma Peritonei (PMP). The disease is a progressive accumulation of mucus-secreting tumor cells within the peritoneal cavity. It is a rare disorder with approximately 2 cases per million individuals.

I first had my symptom on the night of July 21st, I woke up with a sharp pain in my upper abdomen which lasted for almost an hour. So I consulted my doctor and several tests were done, until it was confirmed through a CTscan and laporoscopy that I have PMP.

I was told by my doctors that this type of cancer may be treated through a procedure called cytoreductive surgery and hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy (HIPEC), where all visible tumors are surgically removed, leaving only microscopic cancer cells. Then, a heated chemotherapy solution is delivered directly into abdominal cavity through small tubes for 90 minutes. This is a very complicated procedure that only a few hospitals and surgeons here in the Philippines are able to perform.

The first time I heard the news I was really devastated. But to be able to defeat the cancer I need to undergo this procedure. So I am asking the support of all my friends and and family so I can find a good surgeon and raise fund for the operation. Any form of help will definitely be appreciated. πŸ€—πŸ˜Š
