Hello I'm Noelle Millice D. Silo
I'm a Computer science college student in pamantasan lungsod Ng maynila
An older sibling to my 9 yr old sister and
A daughter to two sick parents.
My mom has stage 3-B breast cancer back in 2016
And our savings were used up for the expensive treatments, medicine and the surgery my mom had.
Since that happened. I was forced to juggle the responsibility of taking care of my mom, my sister, the house, and my studies.
There are times since our resources were scarce I had to choose whether to go to school or save the money for us to eat on that day.
Worried for my family's health especially my mom I always decide to skip some classes so we could eat for the day.
My Father is a retired as a policeman with a rank of P02 which means his pension is just enough scrape by just for his own medicine. he has Parkinsons disease that gets worse as he ages.
Its a disease where there times you can't control your limbs because its either they're frozen or they're shaking furiously.
The amount of maintenance medicine he takes are 3 kinds of medicines in which he takes
levodopa - 5 pcs
akidin - 3 pcs
zolpidem - 1 pc.
Even this year after my mom took her surgery. She still takes maintenance medicines for her oral chemotherapy, thyroid and high blood.
That's why at 2016 I decided to study at PLM so that we won't have to play for tuition as long as I keep my grades up.
However, the school doesn't grant students the help to pay for books, materials,uniforms, and other fees that goes along when you are studying as a student.
I have tried working every summer to save to pay for my expenses.
But since we already used our savings. Most of my salary goes to the medicine my mom and dad are currently taking.
As of now I'm a 3rd year student
And our profs are requiring us to get a laptop advance enough to hold new applications for developing programs.
I failed to earn enough for the last 3 years since I've been helping my family.
And now I humbly ask of you
To please help me support my schooling.
I promise to do study well cause I only have a few years left in school.
I want to help my family so bad.
Thank you and God bless.
