Hey guys! We're running a fundraiser for our good friend, David Villanueva, in Metro Manilla, Philippines to help him support his mom’s medical bills. We are looking to raise US$10,000 (PHP484,900).

This might sound like a common and simple story but David’s story is anything but simple.

David's mom, Myrna Villanueva, is suffering from Polycythemia Vera which is an incurable type of blood cancer. Her condition fluctuates on a daily basis and is in need of several series of tests. She is in constant pain and often gets dizzy/light-headed due to her condition. Hence, David would be the one to shoulder all the housework to avoid his mom encountering any accidents while cleaning/mopping.

Myrna currently lives with David and her grandchildren (14, 11 and 6 years old). She is a full-time housewife while David is the sole breadwinner for their family. Due to this, money has always been a huge concern for the both of them as they juggle all the bills, medical fees, daily household needs and education fees for her grandchildren. Myrna’s eldest daughter is working abroad and has not been home since 2016. She does send money back home, however, the amount was only sufficient for the daily meals of her 3 kids.

David, as a friend, is the most friendly, encouraging and kind person you would ever meet. His patience to teach and humbleness are definitely the 2 main characteristics that you can recognize the moment you talk to him. He is always a smiley person and through all his jokes and laughters, you will never expect him to be struggling to put food on the table and trying to cope with his financial difficulties. The financial constraint that they are facing is so bad to the point that Myrna started to have severe anxieties and minor depression -- which leaves David no choice but to take emergency leaves at work to attend to her needs.

When David opened up to us about his struggles, we knew we had to do something to help him and his family. Myrna, being the caring mother she has always been, did not want him to be asking any financial help from his friends. Hence, we are doing it solely to help him as friends.

David is currently working as a full time employee while working on several part time jobs to maintain his finances. His savings are depleting fast and is in need of your help.

At the moment, Myrna requires a BMB (Bone Marrow Biopsy) urgently, costing around US$2,000. But due to their financial situation, it has to be put on hold until they can afford it.

Myrna's current medical costs are:

- Blood monitoring (every 2 weeks) roughly US$50 each time

- Daily medication: US$5 a day

We're looking to raise US$10,000 for David to cover all medical & daily expenses (treatments, medications & biopsies) for the next 6 months. This extra 6 months will help David get back on his feet and it will be more than enough help that he could ever ask for.

This unprecedented time is stretching David's finances to its' maximum, even a little amount could go a long way to help ease their situation and for Myrna to get the treatments that her condition requires. 100% of all your donations, kind wishes and warm regards will proceed to David’s account.

We would like to thank you for reading up till this point. A small act of kindness goes a long way. We’re not expecting you to make a donation -- but if you could contribute a simple click of a button to share this story, it would definitely help a lot :)

Sincerely,

Leroy, May
