Hello, I'm Apol.
I have created this account for my sister, Carmela, in her battle against cervical cancer.
Karmi, as known to all our family and friends, is an active young lady. She's into sports and loves the outdoors so much - biking, mountaineering, paragliding, and camping. She loves music, sings and plays different instruments too.
Early February of this year, Ate Karmi got hospitalized due to difficulty in breathing and extreme pain in the right side of her abdomen. The findings were due to fluid in the lungs, mass in the liver, and in her cervix. She underwent several tests including a contrast CT Scan of her whole abdomen. After around 2 weeks she was discharged and continued medications at home.
Her lab results last February 27, 2021, concluded a minimal deviation adenocarcinoma (adenoma malignum) + lungs, liver, and peritoneal metastasis. It was shocking to know that she has stage 4B cervical cancer. A rare and aggressive one.
My sister opted for alternative treatment and she had our support. After more than a month of treatment, her body did not respond accordingly.
Right now, we are facing a tighter race against time, but we've seen how focused and determined she is on her new treatment journey - to start and complete her chemotherapy sessions.
To date, her weight has dropped significantly and her abdomen is accumulating fluid (massive ascites). It needs to be drained the soonest. The pandemic gives us a harder time as hospitals are mostly unavailable for new patients. But with God's grace and through your support and prayers, I am hopeful that we will get Ate Karmi out of this danger.
Please help my one and only sister surpass this challenging phase of her life. She is one strong woman and is fighting so well. I believe we should fight for her too.
She is yet to build a family of her own and I wish to see her happily live this life, too. Your donations will truly go a long way for Ate Karmi's cancer treatment and medications. God bless your kind hearts!
On behalf of our family, thank you very much.
