Breast Cancer Stage IV with Bone Metastasis: Help save my mom Rosalia

Update posted by Jake Robert Jacinto On Feb 23, 2020

Just when we thought things are getting better this happens. My mom has slowly regained her strength and has gained weight through these past few weeks.

But last night, at 6 in the evening, while my dad was blending some vegetable and fruits for my Mom, and while I was in my room resting. My mom shrieked out suddenly from sudden unimaginable pain. My dad rushed upstairs and I got up to check what happened to her.

To our horror, she said she felt something snap on her bone while she was opening a closed mayonnaise jar (An act she usually does herself as she has gotten used to doing some things for herself now due to her regained strength). At first we thought it might be just a dislocated bone or something, how can opening a mayonnaise jar break one's bone.

So we rushed her to the hospital, and after some tests the doctors reported that her humerus bone snapped in two. It must be because of the bone metastases that have made her bones brittle all over. We will be having some more tests and x-rays next week and another check-up as to what we can do to heal the broken arm back.

These are her X-rays:

This is her in a cast now:

I do hope everything gets better from here on out. And as always, I thank each and everyone of you who has donated thus far!

The Doctor was astounded after seeing her progress from last time! She now has gained weight and is now weighing around 72 pounds. Her right eye is not reddish anymore, nor can you see the swelling. Her pupils can now move as well and can focus on moving objects.

(Here she is during the chemotherapy)

We will be having another check-up tomorrow and she will be injected a medication that will increase her WBC.

Once again we are thanking everyone who has helped us during this difficult time! *Virtual hugs to everyone!* <3

Our family want to express our eternal gratitude to each and every one who donated as well as to those who helped spread the word of this funding page!

I can't believe that we are now actually past 50% of the goal!

My mom is now rocking a new hairstyle!! Though she prefers to wear a bandanna over his head (It's getting pretty chilly here lately).

Update: My mom will be resuming her 2nd chemotherapy on Feb.19. Thankfully, her platelet count have since gone up and she is healthy enough to start her chemo next week.

Thanks again Everyone!! <3

The doctor is a bit astounded with my mom's speedy recovery. Her right eye is now able to follow movements and is no longer as swollen as before. She was also able to walk with the help of a walker from the halls to the clinic with little support from me.

Her electrolytes are slightly below average and her platelets are also low. But the doctor has prescribed some medications to help balance them all out.

The next chemotherapy treatment will resume on February 19.

(We were able to go the mall a while ago and explore around a bit. Thankfully, the mall had a wheelchair we can use!)

Many thanks to everyone who has donated thus far! We owe you our deepest gratitude! <3
