My kuya (elder brother), Richard or Ichat to friends and family is a bubbly, funny, sprightly person; we all know that he loves basketball, and that he can sing and play the guitar. We have never imagined nor expected that one day, he will be diagnosed with cancer.
Kuya doesn't complain about anything nor say anything about his condition. He didn't have or feel any symptoms. It just all started when he got into a very minor basketball accident, his left thigh got swollen, a few days after, rashes came out, these rashes then became blisters until half of his left thigh were covered with blisters and one by one these blisters became open wounds. That's the time our parents decided to bring him to the hospital and have him checked. Biopsy revealed that he has DLBCL (Diffuse large B-Cell lymphoma), a common type of Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma.
We, his brothers ( there were 6 of us, my oldest brother, 43 died of heart attack last May 22) are doing our best to help our parents (who take care of him. Kuya is still single) fund his medications, hospital bills and chemotherapy treatments but medical bills are piling up. One more thing, just a few days ago, doctors found out that he has Hepatitis B.
In this regard, our family is knocking on your hearts to please help my brother WIN this battle by providing us with financial support/ assistance.
We would really appreciate any amount you can give and we pray that God would bless you more and more!
