Hi everyone! My name is Hazel Tubayan - Maagad, wife of Dorbel Kirt "Bong" Maagad. My husband, Bong, was diagnosed with Brain Cancer (High-Grade Glioma, Grade 4 or Glioblastoma Multiforme) in the first week of May.

We need financial help to cover the expenses for the entire treatment plan including the medications.

The tumor has grown from the tissues within his brain and is very aggressive; it grows fast. When we found out, it was already big, about 2.1 inches. The treatment plan is for him to go through urgent brain surgery - to remove a portion of the tumor, to lessen its size, to be followed by radiation therapy sessions and oral chemotherapy at the same time.

Bong underwent Craniotomy - excision of tumor on May 27. All praise and thanks to God, it was a successful one with almost 0% impact on his well-being. Again, we were reminded by the neurosurgeon that the tumor is very aggressive so we need to follow up with radiotherapy and chemotherapy one month after the surgery if possible. Otherwise, the tumor will grow again.

I and my husband have 2 teenage sons together. With him as the breadwinner in the family, I, now have to adjust my work hours to be able to take care of him and our family's needs. Our family needs all the help we can get more than ever. Your generosity and prayers will support and strengthen our family in this devastating time.

Because there is only one hospital in our area that offers radiation therapy (IMRT), the lineup is too long and it took us about 2 months to get started with his follow-up treatment. He already had 6 sessions for IMRT (Intensity-Modulated Radiation Therapy). Aside from the fundraising, I humbly ask
