My mom would never ask anyone for help so I am asking for her. August 2016 she started to experience abdominal pain. It went on for months. We consulted 7 hospitals, she's been admitted numerous times. She went through several procedures including colonoscopy. We even decided to see faith healers out of despair.
Little do we know, the pain is because of the tumors on her spine. December of the same year she was diagnosed with demyelinating disease and according to the doctors, this illness doesn't have any cure yet. Her illness started to paralyze her. She also had a stroke and other complications. We started to see a physical therapist. She started to walk again for a month or so. We were hopeful. And then she started to experience severe pain again on her back. The least thing that doctors can do is to give her pain relievers. May 2018, she had her second MRI and the doctor said the tumors got bigger. Sadly, her doctor couldn't do anything else. December of 2018, the doctor found cysts on her stomach. Her entire body is now swollen. We consulted two more doctors and one of them said, we can consider an operation which will cost half million pesos and January this year, my mom said, she would like to do it despite the fact that she could die from the operation.
As of the moment, she just had an operation from her bed sores, and the doctors are watching her hemoglobin after blood transfusion. My siblings and I would like to knock to your kind hearts to raise funds. My father passed away 11 years ago and I am a working student myself. With your help, we are hoping to ease some of the financial stresses. Unfortunately, with all the procedures, surgeries and hospitalization, out health insurance has been exhausted already. All contributions no matter how big or small are appreciated beyond any of us can ever put into words.
