Hello, i am Joanne Donnabel Magugat, best friend of Alexa Jennea Basilan. We would like to ask for your help to raise funds for our dearest warrior, Alexa.
Alexa was a cheerful little lady with dreams of being an engineer to get a good job so she can help her family. She had good scholastic records (high marks/no failing marks), and she studied at the University of Santo Tomas, Faculty of Engineering, major in Industrial Engineering.
For her, her health was never a problem in achieving her dreams, however, due to school work loads, her health was compromised. Nevertheless, she pushed her boundaries, and managed to finish her exams, thesis and projects, and even marched on our graduation ceremony last June 7, 2018 even though she was confined at PGH at that moment.

Alexa was diagnosed with SLE (Systemic lupus erythematosus). It is an autoimmune disease in which the immune system of the body mistakenly attacks healthy tissue. It can affect the skin, joints, kidneys, brain, and other organs.
For the past few years, Alexa has been going in and out of the hospital.. Right before our graduation, she was confined because of her kidneys. Since then, she began to take dialysis 3 times a week. Her most recent confinement was last August 31, 2018, Friday due to problems with breathing. She, then, got out of the hospital few days after.
September 8, 2018, around 3-4am, she had a cardiac arrest right when she was brought into their car. It was a 10-min drive to the hospital before she was revived. She is currently in coma.
We humbly ask for your help, any amount would do to help the family of Alexa for their day to day expenses in the hospital. She is confined at the ICCU of the Fatima Univesity Medical Center, in Valenzuela.
Her first day of confinement to the ICCU, costed Php 75,000 already, cost of dialysis excluded. We raised the funding goal to 3 Million, to cover her long term expenses in the hospital..
Also, we ask you to include her in your prayers. God bless you.
Thank you so much
