Hi, my name is Cherry. Most of you know me as Cling2x. I am 29 years old turning 30 next month, and I have cancer.
Yes, you read that correctly. What I thought was just a simple case of ‘dili makalibang’ (constipation) turned out to be a life-threatening illness.
Allow me to share my story, not to gain sympathy but to make known why I would love to live longer. I am a mother of 2 boys. I lost their father 9 years ago in a motorcycle accident. I was 9 months pregnant with my youngest. He didnt get to see his dad. I was broken-hearted. I thought that was the worst moment of my life until a few weeks ago. Until I was diagnosed with rectal cancer at 29. Even the doctors have a hard time believing. I could not believe it.
There is hope they said. All I have to do is undergo treatment and get the tumor removed. But it would cost thousands of pesos. And whether my body can take high doses of radiation to kill the cancer cells and shrink the tumor.
I have to live for my 2 boys. So that I can show my children how to live life for themselves. I am reaching out to you because I have started a Gogetfunding for my fight with the big C. If you could support by making a donation and sharing it with your network, I will be forever indebted to you. Any amount are welcome and every contribution will help me in this journey.
