In 2014, Mike Trinidad was diagnosed with brain stem glioma. A tumor was found in the pons area of his brain, which controls motor and other vital functions (breathing, swallowing, etc). He underwent chemotherapy and radiation treatment, and lived a happy, normal life for several years after.
Last December, however, his MRI scan showed that his tumor had gotten bigger, and has spread to his C1 and C2—the first two bones of the spine. His vision is getting worse (he is now visibly cross-eyed), he can’t breathe properly, he has numbness in his face and mouth, and he’s been hiccuping non-stop. He is also getting weaker. His neuro-oncologist told him that he’d need to undergo treatment again. The treatment costs Php220,000 per month. He needs to be treated for one year.
We are most grateful for your prayers and support. We are also appealing to your generous hearts for any amount that you can share for Mike’s treatment.
From the bottom of our hearts, thank you! Stay safe, and God bless.
