For my birthday this year I have two wishes, the first one is for this global pandemic to finally END and we are all declared safe from NCOV-19.
My second wish is more personal. You see, for the last few months now I had to quit my job to come home to help care for my mom. We have been traveling to Cebu to get her checked for the last few weeks now, it was a rollercoaster ride, from lab tests, managing her pain and the emotional weight its been causing her. Finally, last February 24, 2020, she was diagnosed with a very rare eye cancer. Last 2014 the doctors removed her left eyeball because it had a tumor and after 2 years it metastasized.
When she is experiencing intolerable pain, as a son/daughter, I keep wishing that I can take the pain instead of her, because watching her go through it is unbearable to me and my siblings.
As like any other cancer, this one has also taken a toll on our finances. Trips to Cebu for her Biopsy, Daily Radiation Treatment and Chemotherapy every week is needed, but sadly, we cant afford it. We have done one already and our savings is slowly depleting.
I am making this Fundraiser to ask for your kind assistance. There is nothing I will not do for my mom, and I hope you can help us fight this battle with her.
So far we have spent Php 75,000 for doctors fees, medicine, lab tests, radiation and for her chemotherapy. We have a long way to go. Each therapy session and other meds will cost roughly around Php 6,000+. I am knocking on your generous hearts, any amount will do.
Thank you very much and I am forever grateful for your prayers, assistance and love.
