I am Katrina Penaflor, helping my cousin Ronsela and my Aunt (Tita Rosie) in any way I can which is why I set up this funding page for them.
My mother, Rosita Asedillo, “Mama Rosie”, 57, is kind, friendly, smart, and loving. Mama Rosie is someone who’ll be there for family and friends which is why she is loved by many.
Unfortunately, after suffering from symptoms for a long time, she was diagnosed with Cervical Cancer Stage 1 B3 towards the end of last year. It’s good though that it was caught this early.
Mama Rosie initially needed 4 cycles of chemotherapy and 25 sessions of radiotherapy before she could go through brachytherapy. We’ve exhausted all of our resources including HMO and statutory benefits, for her treatment plan and other medical bills. Her medical expenses have already amounted to ~ Php 90, 000.
During her follow up check up last month (February), with the hopes that her treatment plan has prepared her for brachytherapy, she was advised to have 1 more cycle of chemo and at least 5 more sessions of radiotherapy. We need the size of the tumor reduced before she could undergo and hope for a successful brachytherapy. These additional sessions and a little buffer in case she’d need more, would be around Php 15, 000.
For my Mama Rosie to see her grandchildren grow up and tell them not to cry that much over a break up, or because their parents scolded them for failed subjects in college, and see us, her kids, become successful, she needs to win against this disease and live a long life. For that to happen, on top of the chemotherapy and radiography, she needs to go through brachytherapy treatment which is Php 26, 250 per session, Mama needs 4 - that's of Php 105, 000, plus the Php 15, 000 for the additional chemo and rad. That’s a total of Php 120, 000.
While this may not seem like a lot, to our family, what we’ve spent so far is already a fortune, but we need to raise another Php 120, 000 pesos to help mama win against cancer.
Mama is strong and we’re here to support her mentally, physically, emotionally, and her faith has never been stronger.
However, we have already exhausted what we have on her chemo and rad treatment, which is why we are asking for your help to raise enough funds for the additional sessions and brachytherapy.
Thank you for your act of kindness, big or small, will help in Mama’s fight so she lives longer and makes more memories with us.
