I hope you're having a good day so far. I'm reaching out to you because I wanted to share my story with you.
I am Roel A. Tagapan, 22 years old.
I am a PUJ driver. I got into this job early since I stopped studying ever since my dad got sick which made me the breadwinner of the family, and I also have my own child to support. Because of the lockdown I was not allowed to drive the jeep which made our day to day living challenging.
But something happened that made my life more challenging. I thought I only had sinusitis and did not expect when I found out that was diagnosed with nasopharyngeal carcinoma, a type of cancer originating in the nasopharynx. And now at our current state, the COVID19 has worsened my situation causing many restrictions for my treatment. I don’t know where to find such a large amount of money for all the medicine and procedures that I have to go through. I have asked for help to all the people I know but they couldn’t help me as well because they were also affected by the pandemic. I don’t know where else I can possibly seek help. The cancer cells have slowly been manifesting my brain and the doctor said that if i couldn’t get my treatment as soon as possible, it would become too late for me to survive.
If you could support my treatment by making a donation and then sharing it with your network, I would greatly appreciate it. I know that money can be very tight especially during this outbreak so please know that even the littlest amount helps me get closer to getting the treatment I need. Let me know if you have any questions and I’ll be happy to answer them.
