This is Edriel F. Libre of Aroroy, Masbate. I would like to ask for a help/assistance for my mom with a breast cancer stage 4 case. Her name is Dolores F. Libre.
She was late diagnose with cancer in 2018 and started her treatment later in 2019 due to financial status. Before we got to seek help with the doctor, we supported her with food supplements and herbs that helps slow or stop the progress of the cancer. When we found out that her left breast is already wounded and became smelly, we asked help with our neighbor and our government for financial support. From there, we were able to send her to the hospital in Bicol Regional Training and Teaching Hospital (BRTTH), located at Daraga, Albay. She was able to finish the six cycles of chemotherapy and had only one shot of her first treatment for the bones and ribs to prevent any further development of illnesses like vertebral sclerosis and vertebral osteophytes. After her last session with the oncologist at around February 18, 2020, we were advise to come back two weeks after that last visit. However, due to the lack of financial support we had to seek help first with our neighbor and government for another financial support. It took us a while to collect this supports since our government has a 3 month waiting period to ask for another assistance after you received the first one. We never got a chance to send her back to the hospital as our government had already implemented a total lockdown hence, the money the we collected was use to support for her medicines. Up until this very moment, we never had a chance to send her back again to the hospital due that I no longer have a job to support further and due to the strict covid-19 protocol.
