My brother, Joshua, was diagnosed with HIGH GRADE B-CELL NON-HODGKIN LYPHOMA - a type of cancer in the lymphatic system, on July 2019. He has been admitted at the Lung Center of the Philippines for his first 5 cycles of radiation therapy to reduce the size of the mass inside his chest cavity, prevent potential blockage of vital nerves, and to reduce the spread of the malignant cells. He was further evaluated on September 23,2019 at the St. Luke's Medical Center (under Social Services discount sheme) which further confirm the said disease, and encouraged us to immediately start the chemotherapy cycles as the malignant cells proved to be spreading quickly. He had his first cycle of therapy (R-CHOP) on October 5, 2019. The price of one of the component drug in his therapy, (Rituximab 500mg), cost Php 83,000 alone, at a discounted price. While the whole single cycle is priced around Php 130,000, He was recommended to have at least 6 sessions. His laboratory test, scans and take home medicines is at Php 30,000 a month.
The cost of the medication has become a burden for us. Although employed, both my sister's and my income is insufficient to cover for all the expenses. Therefore, we would like to implore your kind and generous hearts for any financial assistance you may extend to us for the treatment and recovery of my brother.
He is also expecting his first child in a few days, hence, we need every help we can get to bring him back to health and bring back the quality of life he had before, and be the best dad to his son.
Your donation and prayers at this moment of great need will go a long way. Thank you, and God bless you all!
