This campaign is to knock your heart for any financial assistance to my dear cousin Cristina Ortega Malait, 34, who is currently suffering with stage 4 bone cancer. This started with a stage 1 breast cancer when she was still in Saudi Arabia working as an on-call cleaner. She underwent an operation and her right breast was removed. Her medical expenses were covered by the company. As advised by her doctor, she needed to undergo chemotherapy after the operation. Unfortunately, the company would not support her medical expenses anymore. she then decided to come back to the Philippines to ask for any financial assistance from any foundations in the country but the company did not allow her. It took her another year before she was allowed to finally go home but it was already too late. The cancer cells had already scattered and has penetrated through her bones. It pains us hearing this sad happening to our dear Cristina. She did not deserve all the misfortunes that had happened to her in a foreign country far from her family and loved ones, in a country where she was alone. She worked hard and sacrificed being far from her children just so she can provide for their needs. But, despite everything, she did not falter. She continued fighting this deadly disease for her children. She wanted to continue living but since she does not have any income anymore. this hinders her from getting the right procedure and necessary procedures to survive. We badly needed 300000.00 pesos for her medication and other expenses. We need Php 2000.00 for her radiation everyday and that is good for one month. and Php 25000.00 per session for her chemotherapy, and other medical expenses to strengthen her bones . We know this is not an easy fight given the limited resources we have especially monetary. We are asking you to fervently pray for her that she would survive this and always keep the faith. We are also asking for any assistance from you for us to be able to pay for all the bills this entails.
We really need you in this fight. Any help from you will be greatly appreciated and will be in our hearts forever. Thank you very much and may God bless you a thousand-fold!
