Luisito F. De Viller was diagnosed in March 2017 with cerebral glioma moderate to highgrade.
What is cerebral glioma?
Primary brain tumors originate in the brain. These tumors are very different from secondary (or metastatic) brain tumors, which originally developed elsewhere in the body and spread (metastasized) to the brain.
Primary brain tumors mainly develop from glial cells. Glial cells provide the structural backbone of the brain and support the function of the neurons (nerve cells), which are responsible for thought, sensation, muscle control, and coordination.
Luisito was a company employee for an e-commerce serving as a logistics driver until his diagnosis.
April 4, 2017 - Started radiation therapy for a week (except Saturdays and Sundays) and IV therapy per week.
May 17, 2017 - Stopped both therapies.
May 19, 2017 - Luisito's wife underwent a C-section procedure to deliver their first baby.
The ordeal subsided when he met his doctor. However, after the the birth of their first child, Lusito was unable to sustain his medical necessities since the funds are being used to support their baby.
June 2017 - Luisito was in critical condition. He was confined due to seizure and it's found out that the tumor has become more aggressive due to radiation therapy. The size of the tumor increased from 4cm increased to 5cm.
July-Aug 2017 - During this time, he was advised to get an operation. However, Luisito declined as it was very expensive and he thought of the condition of be God's will. He decided to go home and spend time with his family.
September 2017 - He had to be hospitalized once again as the illness has grown worse and he was experiencing headaches. During the CT scan, the tumor was subsiding and, in fact, decreased its size to 3cm. At this time, he was able to sustain his medications and he felt better. We were making ends meet but was able to sustain, survive and kept fighting.
Early 2019 - Their second baby was born and the priority is once again focused on their second child.
As of right now, Luisito and his family are making ends meet and badly needs your help to keep his medications, checkups and necessary procedure to put an end to the tumor.
Currently, the monthly medications would reach more than Php15,000 (almost $300 per month) while hospital bills would reach more than Php20,000 (almost $400 per month).
Your small donation would help Luisito and his family immensely in their dire need of financial assistance. While a big donation would very much go a long way and beyond not just for Luisito, but also for his two beautiful children.
