Hi! I'm Rosalyn Trasporto, and I've been striving to survive my life as I fight a battle with brain tumor. I had my first operation on November 14, 2019, unfortunately, only 1 percentage of the tumor has removed due to too much bleeding,the surgeon had even used 5 bags of blood during this procedure. Initially, after the MRI, the neurologist’s finding was meningioma, a tumor that forms on membrane inside the skull. After the biopsy, they've found out that it's Hemangiopericytoma that is why it bleeds a lot. The surgeon was forced to stop the operation and close back my skull to keep me safe from danger. Because of this, the surgeon prescribed me to undergo four vessels angiogram, a cerebral angiogram to see he arteries that carry blood to the brain. Its purpose is to know how many sessions or embolization must be done.
This tumor in my head has brought me many complications. My first seizure attack was on January 18, 2018. I was sent to the emergency, I almost lost my breathing. The involuntary right leg movement lasted for 24 hours. In Dec 2018 I had a mild stroke and I had to be hospitalized for 8 days. Half body was almost dead and speech was slurring, too. August 30, 2019 I was sent to the emergency again due to severe headache and vomiting. I couldn’t eat for two days and just kept on vomiting. After I came out of the hospital, my vision became blurred. And it has become even worse after my operation in November, just a month ago. Right now, I experience not just blurredness, but also, very frequent episodes of blackness where I can't even see anything. That is why, whenever I walk, I always have to stop and wait until my vision becomes clear again. It happens consistently. Walking has also been affected, my right leg became weak and numb together with my right hand.
I'm a single parent with 18 year-old college student and 3-year old little boy. I am not fit to work anymore. I am renting a room in Cubao that is near to the hospitals so I can go to my check up appointments or anything, easier. I used to be a breadwinner of my family when I was an OFW. This shuttering event of my life has also caused unexpected blow on my finances. My siblings who have their own families are trying their best to help me survive my needs and the needs of my children. My church and friends have been supporting me as well through prayers and aother forms of help to ease my emotional struggles. However, since 2018, I have to maintain medicine to stop or lessen seizure episodes. I’ve been in and out of the hospitals since then, too. Right now, two minor and major procedures should be done before the major second operation.
I have no way of getting payment for them, that is why I'm knocking on your kind hearts for support to raise funds so that I can undergo operation in January 2020.
I will forever be grateful for any kind of help that you could extend in this toughest time of my life, thus far.
