Eddie has found out he has spinal cord cancer, which is a rare type of cancer. He received the devastating news after he retired on November 2014. The following month he did blood tests to find out he has cancer. The past year was extremely hard on him because of the cost of medication he uses affinitor and radiation treatments. He got pneumonia 4 times leading him to lose a significant amount of weight. He is very weak and this campaign will help cover the cost and treatments.
His radiation treatment is in town in which we both have to go to 5 days a week without skipping or the tumor in his spine might grow. He also undergoes chemo injections which have a painful side effects to him. He is a very strong hard working filipino in which he fought pneumonia 4 times because of the side effects of the medication leading to his low immune system. The whole family didn't think he could make it because he dropped to 70 pounds. We waited a few months to stabilize his weight to carry on his cancer treatments. Thank you for supporting this campaign and taking a look.
