Our brother’s diagnosis is one that has felt us shaken, unable to eat and not able to speak to people. Nothing prepares you for cancer, especially in the middle of COVID 19 crisis.
The last 5 weeks have been a huge blow to our family. It started when our brother started experiencing pains in his abdomen and without second-guessing it, he went to the hospital. After a scan, it was declared that emergency surgery was to be performed to treat appendicitis, an inflammatory condition of the appendix.
The scan also revealed grade 3 of adenocarcinoma of the colon (one of the common cancers on colon and rectum). Although the tumor was surgically removed, he needs to go through 12 doses of chemotherapy in a span of 6 months, a treatment that is very costly.
We are appealing to you, our family, friends, and friends of friends to assist us in raising this money and most important keep our brother in prayers as he goes through this unprecedented journey.
