Medication for Sarcoma Cancer diagnosed in 2012 or surgical operation if possible.
Actually I have already undergone six sessions of chemotherapy but it only managed to delay the cancer growth. I decided to have an operation and went to see an Oncologist but I backed out when I was informed it would cost me about 700 thousand pesos. I tried herbal medicine like Guyabano juice but my cancer persisted. Worse, I developed Chronic Kidney Disease and had to be hospitalized twice. My dilemma is that the kind of food recommended for cancer patients was totally banned for CKD patients because of Potassium content. Now I depend on B-17 and Pancreatin for my cancer medication, prescribed medicine for my CKD, not to mention the constant use of diapers because of uncontrolled urination.
Somehow I managed to survive but the cost of all the medicines and other incidental expenses is hard for me to maintain me being already 60 years old and out of job. I am also bedridden most of the time and the picture seen here is when I travelled just lately from Manila to Cebu for my medical check up but I had to be carried in a wheelchair to board and disembark the ship.
I can only ask so much for support from my family but not always because they too have their own financial responsibilities. I am hoping that through this program I could get enough amount for an operation even in a government hospital to minimize the cost. A doctor once told me that Sarcoma cancer lasts only 5 years but earlier than that, I was also informed by another doctor that my life would last about six months to one year only because of the disease. I'm barely past my fifth year now since I was diagnosed but I am hoping, with God's help through this program I could survive all these trials. I want to personally thank all those who, in one way or another, in whatever amount they could afford, would be generous enough to provide me some financial assistance and help me in my time of need. May God reciprocate their kindness.
