Hello, Everyone! my name is Christine. This is my husband Vincent Tiu, 35 years old was born with NF1 (Neurofibromatosis Type 1) is a condition characterized by changes in skin coloring (pigmentation) and the growth of tumors along nerves in the skin, brain, and other parts of the body.
Diagnosis dated 12/22/2018: Hemangioendothelioma, Pelvis
CT Scan of the pelvis dated 4/12/2019: 10.2 x 8.9 x 9.8cm
It was April 15, 2019 when we were able to start his Radiation Therapy (RT) with the help and support from the donations we have received here in GOFUND and by sharing to other social sites.
May 27, 2019 on his 26th session of RT, the Doctor advised us to stop the treatment since the tumor is still growing as shown on the repeat CT Scan confirming that the RT was unable to help stop the progression of pain.
Repeat CT Scan of the pelvis dated 5/17/2019: 11 x 9 x 10.8cm
Diagnosis dated 6/05/2019: HIGH GRADE MALIGNANT PERIPHERAL NERVE SHEATH TUMOR
Stage 3 Cancer (Hemangioendothelioma, Pelvis)
This time we were advise to undergo a Chemotherapy and or Chemoembolization prior to Surgery.
Chemotherapy is our first option since this will help him stabilize the tumor and lessens the pain though it is not guaranteed that it will make a ZERO pain and stop the tumor from growing. Every sessions/cycle he should be admitted to the hospital for 4days due to severe pain and possible side effects. Vincent will undergo 6-8cycle of Chemotherapy, each cycle cost about P60,000 (USD 1,200) plus other medical/lab tests.
This is not the first time that we will ask help from other people, we were running out of resources and we turned to the government for help but we have almost reached the limit.
Our goal is to raise P500,000 (USD10,000). Again, please help us reach our goal with your financial support; with the help of generous individuals like you, you are changing the life of Vincent.
Thank you in advance for your support.
NOTE: Private message me if you need to see a copy of his medical records and other infos.
