I've only met Tierra early in October this year. I haven't even met her personally. When she learned that I was running an agency in Upwork, she messaged me and requested to join the agency because she was having a hard time getting a job in Upwork. She does gigs in other platforms but was only getting project-based/short-term contracts.
Tierra is a mother and I don't even know how many kids she has or how young they are. She is also twice a cancer survivor. That tells me that she's a fighter.
November 21 - She was brought to the ER of the Lucena United Doctors after experiencing a crushing pain in her head. She came out 3 Wednesday, just 3 days later. I helped her a little bit with the expenses because the hospital won't let her leave even with a promissory note because apparently, she had already been admitted last month and they already issued a promissory note for a P25,000 balance. Tierra said they've already pawned their old house in Cavite to cover for her treatment from the previous years.
November 27 - Just a day after coming out of the hospital, her friend (who I'm talking to now via her FB messenger) said she collapsed and lost consciousness so they rushed her back to the same hospital in Lucena City. Although she came out of a brief comma, she is now too weak.
Tierra belongs to the Filipino freelancing community. And I am too. On her behalf, all I'm asking is that we share our blessings with Tierra in her time of dire need. Her doctor recommended that they operate on her ASAP to remove the tumor if not completely, to at least remove the aggressive part. The operation is going to cost P400,000 or USD8,000.
All I'm asking is that you help me come up with P300,000 or USD6,000. I'm sure Tierra still has friends and family that's also doing what they can to find the funds needed for Tierra's operation.
Christmas, the season of giving is just around the corner. Your donations will be appreciated immensely by Tierra, her kids and her family!!
Tierra Nicolas Elcano - I'm sorry I have to do this. Your friend told me that you didn't want to bother other people, esp those you didn't know. But I want to help you, and my help just won't be enough.
