My sad story started last 2016. All along, the pain I was experiencing wasn't just a normal headache. I was diagnosed with brain tumor. My life changed in a blink of an eye. More than the physical effects of the tumor, my emotional state of mind was affected the most. Like others who were diagnosed with the same sickness, I first sought low risk cures like herbal supplements and healthy lifestyle, but it wasn't enough. The tumor started to show growth.
After a year and a half of prayers, healthy living and doing supplements, I decided to take a little risk. I underwent radiation therapy that should've shrunk and killed the tumor cancer cells. Months after the radiation therapy, I felt like I was born again. I was able to spend time with my family and friends. It felt like I only had a bad dream. I lived a few normal months after the therapy. It was a short-lived moment.
Life doesn't always make sense.
Beginning of 2018 when I started to notice drastic changes to my body. The bad dream I previously struggled with is visiting me once again.
I had numerous MRIs(magnetic resonance imaging) with various hospitals and countless appointments with neurosurgeons. I just had to make sure that the radiation therapy wasn't for nothing. I had to know if it didn't really kill the horror in my nightmare. My strength started to deteriorate little by little due to the effects of the brain tumor clinging to my brain stem.
I can't walk anymore. I no longer have the balance to stand on my own. My muscles grew weak. I am now also having a hard time talking. It greatly affected my speech. It affected everything. It affected my whole life.
I was told that my last resort is to undergo brain surgery pronto to remove the tumor before I grow weaker. If the surgery is not done soon, my body will not be able to handle the surgery and there will be no room for recovery.
I am doing this campaign to seek a second chance in life. A second chance for my family. A second chance to help others too. I am touching your kind hearts to help me with my fight against my brain tumor. Any amount is a big help. Thank you in advance!
