“Bucket list” is everything in our early 20’s. In our youth, we hoped that someday we check off every entry and experience life just before we take it seriously.
Last July 9, a good friend and colleague of ours, Marifer de Guzman (24 years old) was diagnosed Breast Cancer with bone metastasis. She was advised to palliative treatment and targeted chemotherapy for 18 cycles every 21 days until disease progression. One of the medical treatments, Herceptin, costs around PHP 2,000,000.00 and this will begin in a couple of weeks.
Your prayers are more than enough to help this young and optimistic woman. And to support her, we have launched a campaign starting with breast cancer awareness shirts. This disease affects thousands of women each year, Marifer’s battle is no different we only hope this will win her youth back. Tick a few off her medicine list so she’d take all this pain and tears as an entry on her bucket list that she survived cancer.
