Photos of initial diagnosis and first hospital confinement
Hi! My name is Cherry Lorena Sadiasa. I am starting this Gofundme campaign for my eldest brother, Ronald Allan Lorena, who needs help in financing his medical bills.
Last July 2020, he complained of stomach pains. We brought him to the hospital where he was immediately confined for three days. After a series of tests, the simple pains turned out to be colon cancer, stage IV. He also has a tumor on his liver. He was immediately recommended for colostomy- an operation that creates an opening for the colon, or large intestine, through the abdomen. After this was done can he only begin two simultaneous chemotherapy. However, this hospitalization has already exhausted all his medical insurance. He tried several alternative treatments using his remaining savings but his health continuously deteriorated.
On October 14, he went for a check-up and resulted with the same recommendation- a colostomy must be performed soon.

He requires around 1.3m pesos (26,700 USD) for his entire medical needs. But his urgent need is 42,000 pesos (around 865 USD) for CT scan and 100,000 pesos (around 2,060 USD) for the colostomy procedure.
We are pleading for your generosity and kindness to help us in this time of need. My brother is fighting for his life for his two young children. Whatever amount you can give will be a big help and very much appreciated.
