Cess has been diagnosed with Chiari Malformation, a condition in which brain tissue extends into her spinal canal. Her doctor advised her to undergo surgery - the only treatment to correct functional defects. Chiari malformation can become a progressive disorder and can lead to serious complications.
Cess needs financial support for her surgery. Her work is greatly affected as she experiences dizziness, numbness of face, vision problems, pain in the lower back and neck, and problems with her balance and coordination. She currently lives with her mother and her aunt, both are already senior citizens who need her support as well. Her mother and aunt solely relies on her.
Below is the estimated cost of her operation and hospitalization at PGH:
- Professional Fee of Surgeon and Anesthesiologist - P200-P220K
- Hospital Bill - P60K-P80K
Doctors would remove a small portion at the bottom of her skull and some part of her spinal column to correct the irregular bone structure. Healing process would take up to three months.
Cess needs every support we can give to her since her HMO would not cover the total bill.She's already sought help from government institutions for financial support.
