My 8-year old little boy Shazer has always been the love of our lives. He is our pride and joy since he was born.
Although sometimes shy, he is always one of the top students in his classes. From being a valedictorian on his pre-school year to becoming one of the best pupils who are always in the honor roll, I am the proudest father to this young man who at a young age can be seen great potential in the future.
He even became a champion on his very first Chess competition, defeating other long time chess players at the age of 7.
However, all these may be gone, as we have learned that Shazer has a bone cancer called Osteosarcoma. We have recently learned this when his right leg became swollen after he stumbled.
X-ray and MRI are done and we are now waiting for the result of CT Scan and biopsy to learn what the stage of the cancer is.
Once we know what the stage is, surgery will be done to prevent the cancer from spreading and chemotherapy to kill the cancer cells. All these should be done the soonest possible time as this type of cancer can spread at a short period of time.
As of now, we are still awaiting advice and recommendations from the doctor and will soon update this campaign on how we are going to proceed.
As of now, we are hoping and praying that it is still in the early stage and that we will be able to save our little boy.
This is what the campaign is all about.
Our family is humbly asking for your help. We would never ask for money in any other situation, however, as a father, I would do everything to save my son's life, and it hurts me so much that we cannot do this alone.
Whatever you feel comfortable giving will make a difference, and will be gratefully appreciated. More than that though, our little boy needs all your prayers and love through this difficult period of his life.
Thank you for your generosity and kind hearts.

We are now in Manila and our little boy just got admitted here at the Philippine General Hospital (May 25, 2019). The next step is for Shazer to undergo biopsy but no schedule yet. We will update you soon again. Thank you for your prayers and support.
