Hi everyone! We are asking for your help and your prayers for the healing and recovery of our father.
Our Papa, Joemarie Gonzaga, 48 y/o and will be turning 49 this November 17, was diagnosed with advanced stage of Squamous Cell Carcinoma of Hypopharynx. There is a tumor on the right side of his neck. He undergone an emergency tracheostomy since the tumor is almost blocking the passage of his breathing and food. He is also fed through NGT. Currently, he's not able to speak because of the tube that makes it very hard to communicate with him. He was advised of chemotherapy treatment and this is done every 21 days and requires 6-8 cycles. He will have his 3rd cycle on November 11. Every chemo session requires him to be admitted in the hospital for at least 2 days. We are hoping and praying that this will help to treat his cancer so that he will not undergo radiotherapy anymore.
Being sick in the middle of pandemic is very hard for our family especially on his medical expenses. He had been admitted for 14 days in the hospital that cost more than P200,000. At home, we need to stock up oxygen tanks since he experiences difficulty in breathing with only his tracheostomy tube and this is the most expensive to sustain because he almost used up 1 tank per day that cost P580.00. He also needs Ensure milk (18scoops per day) to be included in his NGT feeding that makes the 850g good for only 5 days.
We're very thankful for his company for the support in his admission bills but not everything can be covered. In this most challenging time for all of us, in the middle of Covid-19 pandemic, we are humbly knocking on your generous hearts to help us sustain the medical maintenance and needs of our Papa because he wanted so much to have his normal life again. In fact, he wants to go back to work already. No small or big amount of help! Your monetary help and prayers will be greatly appreciated. As his children, we are doing and will do everything to help him survive cancer. This is not easy but we know Papa will get through this with your help and prayers.
Thank you and God bless us all! ❤
