Help Loida Fight Breast Cancer

Update posted by Meriam Saldivar On Nov 03, 2019

Update about Loida's condition:

Last October 25, 2019, Loida was brought to the hospital at the Philippine Heart Center and had a check up first prior admission. The doctor requested for another 2D echo lab and this time at the Philippine Heart Center. The family hopes for a miracle and yes miracle happend. She will no longer undergo the procedure. But of course, her cardio doctor asked for another chest xray. Sadly, her left lungs are still no good. Battle continues.

She has another complication which is muscle pain. In the past, she was also diagnosed to have osteoarthritis. It was really painful for her to endure and she cried for help. Right now, she is using TENS machine to make her comfortable for the period being and still she is in pain.

She was so worried about her muscle pain and the thought of having the procedure. It was a blessing that she will no longer experience such pain.

From time to time, the family is monitoring on her health condition. Having a cancer illness is no joke and we hate cancer.

Let us continue to help Loida fight her battle.

The family is thankful for all the support that their mother is receiving, like all your prayers and novena. The family will update me and relay her health condition. Again, massive thanks to all of you. God Bless you all.

  • Known to friends and family as Louvelle, Loida Bella Mayor Macasero is currently suffering from a Stage 4 Cancer of the Breast that has metastasized to her lungs, throat and some parts of her brain. She's a mother of four and has been a hardworking single mom since 1990 ever since her husband left. Carrying the heavy burden of working and caring for her children alone has been how life is for her. Knowing that her children gets to finish their education has been her only source of inspiration to keep living and having a happy disposition in life. At the age of 60, and while enduring the pains of having unwanted cancer cells in her body, Louvelle is holding fast to her faith in God and unwavering devotion to Padre Pio to help her get through this phase in her life. She's a selfless woman who has helped friends, other people, and relatives get through life's many challenges without asking anything in return. She wouldn't wish for anyone to be a victim of her current affliction. In 2015 , Louvelle was diagnosed with a simple lump on her left breast (thought to be benign). Her oncologists, in an effort to alleviate the possible threat of a malignant tumor gave her the option to have a mastectomy (which she took) in order to prolong her life. Four years later during the month of January 2019 in one of her normal busy days as a grandmother of three, Louvelle noticed that her persistent coughing wouldn't go away and she seemed easily vulnerable to pneumonia. After having an extensive diagnostic work up, it was then found that the tumor cells from her breast has spread already to other portions of her organs particularly to her lungs, throat and some on her brain and was diagnosed stage 4 last April 2019. She has already undergone 10 radio therapy sessions since April 2019. Recently she got confined again where a Thoracentesis procedure was done and almost 3 liters of fluids were extracted from her lungs. After the procedure she had a 2D Echo and found out there is water outside her heart; and we sought second opinion. Cardio recommended for her to undergo a Plueropericardial window that would cost PHP300,000 net. She also has vocal paralysis on top of this (and will have another procedure for that) but right now she has to do Plueropericardial window first. Louvelle's family has spent close to 650,000.00 in medical bills and maintenance just to keep her spirits up in the hopes of getting through these trying times. We are humbly knocking your hearts for any kind of assistance you can readily spare. Know that in the upcoming procedures that she may undergo, the help you spare will greatly affect in prolonging her life in this world.
