It was around 13 years ago when this all started. I was in 3rd year High School at the time. My mother was diagnosed with Breast Cancer Stage IV in 2007. Then from there it metastasized to her liver, and after that, to her left femur. She couldn't even walk during those times. My dad needed to carry her from our house, to the car, then to the hospital. When the doctors required a sample from my mom's bone, the doctor just scooped the bone without any effort as the bones have deteriorated to a point that it's as soft as mush.
But my mom is one of the lucky ones, she survived all through the treatment, pain and suffering. Just after a few years from then on, she was walking again and was as active as ever. The cancer resurfaces from time to time but our doctor was always ahead and treated it as soon as it resurfaced.
(That's my mom and dad right there.)
Flash forward to April last year, the deterioration started yet again. She was feeling weak, and slowly her legs gave up again. She underwent not one, but two treatments of radiotherapy in a span of two months. Since my father is getting old as well, I am the one now who carries her from our house to the car, then to the hospital. Every time I carry her in my arms I just wish that this will be all over soon and she'll return back to her normal self. I just want my mom to get better.
(This is us during her radiotherapy) Stay strong mom!
The cancer on both of her femurs have been controlled already, the problem right now is the metastasis on the front of her skull. Her right eye is swollen as it is getting squeezed by the bones near her eyes. She has difficulty breathing because her sinuses are getting squeezed by the tumors as well. But one thing good about her physiology is she responds well to the treatments that the doctors give her. The only problem right now is that my father, my brother, and my funds have ran low and we need some help so that my mom can survive this newest battle.
The medical expenses she's gonna need moving forward would be around P100,000 ($2,000). She still needs two cycles of chemotherapy and would need another medication that would raise her WBC to control the side-effects of the drug. Each chemotherapy and WBC medication costs around P30,000 ($600). Then add the hospital expenses and other tests we need to do to ensure her health then we it'll equal to more or less around P100,000 ($2,000)

My mom just finished her 3rd Chemotherapy a while ago! It seems that after this one, we'll still have a 4th chemotherapy session on April 1 and our Doctor is still calculating if there will still be a 5th and 6th. Hopefully, the 4th one would be the very last. . . . .
