I am humbly asking for your help to save my father, Perlito Yusingbo, from cancer. At 52, he has been diagnosed with fast-growing Non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL).
Non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) is a group of blood cancers that includes all types of lymphoma except Hodgkin's lymphomas.
Before this, he had always been suffering from frequent stomach aches. First, he was diagnosed with Burkitt lymphoma.
Burkitt lymphoma is a form of non-Hodgkin'slymphoma in which cancer starts in immune cells. Burkitt lymphoma is recognized as the fastest growing human tumor, associated with impaired immunity, and is rapidly fatal if left untreated.
After being diagnosed with Burkitt lymphoma, he took more tests including a PET scan. It was after the PET scan that he was then diagnosed with NHL.
The doctor has required 8 sessions of chemotherapy as treatment, with 21 days of interval. Every session, medicine and tests cost roughly PHP100,000 which is very hard for us.. I may not understand all medical terms completely, but I know it is extremely important that we never miss a session, and the reason why I started this fundraising campaign. My family is asking your kind hearts to please help us raise funds for his treatment.
Thank you and God bless.
