Hi! This is my father, Edgardo De Jesus. He is 61 years old and was diagnosed with Stage 3 Colon Cancer last June 2019. He underwent colostomy in which one end of his intestine was brought out through his abdomen wall connecting to a bag that now collects his stool. This made his daily situation of bowel movement difficult and had to retire from his job.
The tumor (about 6cm in size) that was found in his rectum needs to be taken out before cancer cells spread to his other organs. Chemotherapy will help shrink this tumor and it will be easier for the surgeons to remove it. He needs to undergo 4 sessions which would cost roughly 60,000 - 80,000 Philippine Peso (PHP) each.
We are seeking for financial help to start his chemotherapy session. We hope that he could live a normal life again, regain his strength and build more memories with us.
