We humbly ask for any assistance for the treatment of my mother's Stage 4 Breast Cancer. She was diagnosed last November 2017, and since then we have been struggling to make ends meet for her chemotherapy and other medical needs. As of now, we've depleted our resources and we cannot afford anymore chemotherapy cycles. She is struggling with lung problems aside from the breast cancer itself, and with my father the only one working and me as a recent college graduate, we can only do so much. I am asking anyone who is kindhearted to PLEASE HELP US and that any amount will do. Thank you so so much.
***(If anyone wants the validity of this campaign, you can message me directly and I can send copies of her medical records and donating DIRECTLY to my BANK ACCOUNT is highly appreciated, just message me for details.)***
My mom was diagnosed with Stage 4 Breast Cancer back in November 2017. This wasn't the first time, she was diagnosed before with Stage 2 Breast Cancer back in 2011, underwent surgery, chemotherapy, radiation and survived. But the cancer came back, more intense, along with excessive coughing and unexplainable back pains, all of which were initially thought to be a result of allergies and old age, which were somehow too intense for the aforementioned reasons. Results showed that the cancer has progressed and has affected her lungs. We spent most of December 2017 and January 2018 in the hospital since she had to undergo surgeries to remove the fluid in her lungs. That alone costed us almost half a million. It was sleepless nights of her crying because of the pain, and us staying awake most of the time just to make sure that the oxygen tank keeps on running, since the fluid in her lungs hinders her to breathe on her own. Most days it was just me with her in the hospital room and being with her as they roll her in to surgery, as my dad works the whole day just to provide for our daily needs and the hospital fees. He would go home at night, and still do paper work, while still trying to stay awake. My mom underwent six chemotherapy sessions for the year, and it was months and months of going back to the hospital, doing tests, doing chemotherapy, and processing papers once again, and when our resources are almost depleted we turned to the government for help. She needs continuous cycles of chemotherapy, but sadly, we then reached our limit for government help and we had no other choice but to stop the cycles. Each cycle costed about P150,000. Since her cancer has far progressed, my mother's oncologists still encourages us to go through more cycles, but without any more resources, we can only do so much. She is slightly getting more energy, but still needs further treatment.
We are hoping that anybody who sees this will either donate or share this post--either way it will really help so much, and a huge thanks for those who already did. You don't know how much it means to us.
It feels like we are in a race against time. Help us lengthen my mom's life--help us beat my mom's cancer.
- February 21 - My mom was rushed to the ER at night time since she had difficulty breathing. The doctor prescribed meds since they said my mom has pneumonia. There were no available rooms. She was sent home to self-medicate at home.
- February 22 - My mom was AGAIN rushed to the ER at night. X-rays showed that she once again has fluid in her lungs. They prescribed diuretics. She was again sent home.
- March 6 - It's her birthday. She's feeling tired most of the time, and is having difficulty breathing.
- March 7 - At 5 AM, we rushed to the ER since she can't breathe. We spent 12 hours in the ER, and got admitted at 5 PM since they said they are probably taking action with regards to the fluid in her lungs + possible pneumonia.
