Lexie is 13 years old and she is in Grade 7. She is adorable, beautiful, cheerful and our darling. At early age she started to be independent having no mother working abroad. Currerntly she is under the care of their grandmother. Until she felt itchness in her whole body. Everyone thought that this is just a simple allergy brought by her previous illness which is skin asthma.
December 22, 2016 when she noticed that she have a lump just below her armpit. She undergone 5 xrays and the initial finding is it was mild scoliosis. She have lumps below her armpit, at the side of her neck and her inguinal. She was prescribed to take antibiotic for 2 weeks and be back at January 5 for final diagnosis. But on January 1 she had a chicken pox during her medication. The allergy became even worst and her left eyes started to sore. Finally they decide to ask for the consultation of EENT and the doctor told them that it was irritated by dust.
Since she have multiple symptoms, she went back to the doctor February 4, 2017 and the doctor said that her condition is serious. She was admitted to the hospital on February 6 and have undergone biopsy on February 8. Her mom, who is a single mom have to go home to take care of her. We got the result of her biopsy on February 21 and it was confirm that she have a Hodgkins Lymphoma.
She is in pain to the point that she cannot sleep peacefully at night. The itchiness is more evident now. I told her to think of her mom and her sister to make her agree for the treatment.
At this point, I am asking for help for my neice for her to have chemo therapy. The therapy will be in the next 6 months, twice a month. The estimated amount needed for the whole treatment is 700,000. I am doing this to help my neice to fight this illness and my sister who is a single mom. My sister is an OFW but her salary is just enough for everyday living.
Any help is greately appreciated.
