Alicia S. Cruzos, or who we fondly call Ate Alice, is a librarian in a College of Music. She has served and helped numerous music students and alumni for more than 20 years. In 2015, she was diagnosed with Myasthenia Gravis and Aplastic Anemia. She had to undergo blood transfusion for several months. Soon after, a lump was found in her Thymus gland which resulted to the removal of the gland. And in 2017, she was diagnosed with Brain Tuberculosis. She underwent a brain biopsy and was hospitalized for a month. Complications from the different ailments posed a threat in her life several times but with prayers and the help of her family and friends, she has miraculously survived.
A few weeks back, she was diagnosed with Pneumonia and tested positive with the dreaded COVID-19. And, due to the economic crisis caused by this pandemic, she and her family are once again in dire need of financial aid to cover the hospital bills and medication.
We seek your help to donate any amount for our dear Ate Alice. Thank you so much and may God bless you a hundred fold.
