I'm Jennelyn Barizo, 28 years old from the Philippines.
My Brief History:
In 1997, I got into a vehicular accident (bus) resulting to above knee amputation of my left leg and a poorly healing wound in my right leg. Im already used to having a wound in my right leg not until 2012, i've noticed some strange mass on my wounds. I went to a doctor and I was advise to have a surgery.
In 2013, i had the surgery. The doctor removed the infected tissue and performed skin grafting. They get a healthy skin from my upper leg and used it to cover my wounds.
After surgery, there is still no improvement and got bacterial infection. A lump grows into the wounds.
In 2014, i had another surgery. They removed the lump. The doctors orders to do a biopsy on the mass. The result is a skin cancer ( Squamous Cell Carcinoma) After getting the result of the biopsy, they transferred me to a hospital in Manila and advised to have my right leg amputated. On the same year, my right leg has been amputated.
I was admitted in the hospital for more than month for my therapy and counselling. A doctor gave me a prothesis for my right leg.
Currently, it's no longer usable. Due to lack of money, i cant acquire new leg. I created this campaign with the hope that someone can noticed me and my story and help me financially.
Thank you so much in advance!
