Help Fight Cancer: Rolly’s fight for Pancreatic Cancer

Update posted by Jeremey Presto On May 03, 2017

[Update] Dr. Necy Juat of NKTI decided to add 8 sessions (previously 4 sessions) of chemotherapy starting May 11, 2017 after a little improvement of chemotherapy. She decided to add sessions as she wants more improvement (shrink of tumor around Pancreas) before undergoing major operation. As of today, he's a bit lively, jokingly around and doing his habit of tree planting.

For this, we are knocking on your good heart as we need PHP 785,344.96 for this 8 sessions.

We need to pay at least PHP 98,168.12 per session per week until end of June hoping for great improvement.

Thanks and God Bless.
