I am starting this account to ask help for my husband Chris' medical treatments which include chemotherapy and laboratory tests.
Chris is a funny, responsible, caring, and loving friend, husband, and father of our two children - Calix,6 and Yomi, 4. If you are close to him, you'd know how he his always willing to help out anyone with the best of his abilities. But this time, it is he who needs a little of your help.
Last May 2016, he felt an unusual shortness of breath and his X-ray and CT-Scan showed that he has pleural effusion or fluid in his left lung and an unidentified mass in his chest. He was confined to have the fluid drained and the mass subjected to biopsy. A few days later, he was diagnosed with Stage 3a Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma.
Although the doctors told us that his type of lymphoma is cureable, he would still need to undergo 8 cycles of chemotherapy and a few rounds of radiation. He would also be given Rituximab a drug made specifically to target CD20 B-cells. However each dose of Rituximab costs Php 90,000 and he will be needing one per cycle.
His salary and mine combined is not enough to cover the expenses. Unfortunately, he was already advised by the doctors to take a leave from work so as not to put his health at more risk because his immune system is low.
Because of the amount of his medical bill, we're hoping a little financial assistance will also help reduce Chris' stress level so he can concentrate on getting better.
This may be a long shot but any amount will go a long way. We will greatly appreciate any amount the you will generously share.
Through all these hardships and struggles, Chris has kept a positive attitude and continues to do all that he can to care for his kids and family.
Thank you for all your thoughts, prayers and assistance during this challenging time.
