Hello everyone!!! This is for our friend, Venus Villavieja. She wrote the details about herself below.
Hello my name is Venus, 48 years old, a widow (for 18 years) with one daughter, and... I have breast cancer. Last March 2016, i was diagnosed with stage 2 breast cancer. Since i was working in the BPO industry that time, i still have my healthcard so I decided to undergo surgery to have my right breast removed. But right after the surgery, i can not go to work anymore because i need to recuparate for 2 mos. And i was also part of the redundancy going on in the office so i need to resign. But still i never gave up no matter what i feel, i still decided to work even at home. I still need to make a living for our needs.
For 2 mos i must say it was okay, i was able to sustain our needs, my medication and our food. But my body is not and will never be the same as it was before so i could feel so many pains on my back, on my pelvic, on my left knee and there were a lot of tests that the doctor has required to be done, and because of this, i was not able to concentrate on my job. I have no choice but to quit due to my health condition. There are lots of tests needed to be done to be sure up to what extent has been affected in my body --Bone scan, whole abdominal ultrasound, alkaline 2decho/doopler to name a few, as much as i wanted to do all of this at once, i do not have the means.
Right now after 4mos that my right breast has been removed, the cancer cells had spread out already. I know that having this kind of sickness would eventually lead to death if not treated immediately. I dont have my own family to support me -- my parents had died already, my brother has a family of his own and he himself has his own health problems as well so he cant work. My sister just like me is also a single mum so she needs to support her child as well.
Until now i still cant accept the fact that i would turn out this way. Not even in my wildest dream. I used to pray to God that i dont want to live long in this world, all i want is to see my daughter graduate, have a good job and have her own family. But when this happened all of my dreams and inspiration just collapsed. Right now i dont have work or even if i have, my body would not allow me to do so. I dont know what will happen next to us, how am I going to provide for our needs like food, medications, etc. There are a lot medications that i needed not mention the chemotherapy itself. This is the reason why i am knocking on your doors right now for any assistance that you can extend so that i would be able to continue my treatment.
I hope you can open your hearts for people like us who really are helpless right now. I may not be able to repay you or give you back whatever it is that you had extended i know the Lord will provide you with a thousand fold of blessings!!
