Hi, I am Katherine and this fundraiser is for my mother, Portia, who has Invasive Ductal Carcinoma, Grade 3 (breast cancer). I am sincerely asking for help in funding her chemotherapy and the succeeding treatments.
In December 2019, a big lump of mass was detected in my mom's left breast. Later on, she had the lump surgically removed as it was already deeply attached to her chest wall.
While recuperating, her biopsy arrived. My mom's surgeon explained she has cancer and that a Modified Radical Mastectomy (MRM) should be done right away.
On March 9, 2020, my mom's left breast was surgically removed. On May 7, she underwent her first chemotherapy. Throughout the month of May, she underwent Upper Abdomen CT Scan, Full Chest CT Scan, Body Bone Scan, and several blood tests.
The chemo cycles costs around PHP 40,000 each. In-between the chemotherapy are accompanying oral medicines, vaccines, and blood tests. After eight (8) chemo cycles, the doctors will perform tests and possibly, will have my mom undergo Immunotherapy, Radiotherapy, and Hormonal Therapy.
It is only my older sister and me who are working. However, our salaries are not enough to cover my mom's treatment, our rent, and our basic needs. We have been living from paycheck to paycheck since early this year. We have a growing debt because of the several loans we had to avail to afford my mom's treatment.
We humbly and sincerely ask for your financial support. Your help will give my mother a fighting chance. She has been a single mom for almost 22 years now, raising me and my sister the best way she can. As her daughters, we want to give back and support her as much as we can.
We are also asking for prayers for her full recovery that she may be completely free from cancer and other possible sicknesses.
Thank you so much for reading my mom's story and for your generosity. God will surely bless your compassionate heart.
