Hi My name is Charmie. I was diagnosed with Stage 2B Cervical Cancer last 7th of January 2019 on my brother's 38th birthday. It was supposed to be a happy day for us in the family but the celebration was clouded with tears as I broke the news! I am fighting to live longer for my 2 year old daughter Briana. I am not ready to let go yet. I am not ready to leave my sweet little princes behind. I want to see her grow. Hold her a little longer and feel her love to me and let her feel my love to her as well.
Since January 7 2018 I am in and out in the hospital due to severe vaginal bleeding. Been transmitted with a total of 8 bags of blood already as my hemoglobin dropped to the lowest. My chemo therapy starts tomorrow Tuesday March 5. I am not sure if my family can still afford for another round after this as such treatment is quite expensive. My family and friends are doing some fundraising as well to support me. They sell perfumes and soap. Some friends also selling whitening and other feminine products. My brother is also staring his garage sale for me. And i thank God for having me surrounded with such loving people!
I am not sure how long will I stay as I have read so much negative articles about Cervical Cancer and survival rate is not promising specially in the Philippines. But I want to make a difference. I want to fight for my life. I want to live longer for my family, for my friends and most specially for my daughter. She is too young to live without a mother. I am too young to die as well. I am prying to God for him to spare me more life, even for just a year or 2.
