Our friend Gail Nikola Salor was recently diagnosed with Stage 3 lymphoma cancer. She is 16 years old and a scholar of Makati Science High School. She is in need of immediate financial assistance as her parents are unable to find work amid the pandemic.
During the duration of the school year 2019 - 2020, Gail has been attending school like usual. She was only admitted to the hospital on April 15, a month after the end of the school year. Shortly after, she had her biopsy operation and got the results a week later. She was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. She started taking food supplements upon her diagnosis with hopes of improving her condition but they weren’t enough to shrink her tumor. Three months later, on July 24, she started undergoing chemotherapy.
Personal notes from her friends:
Gail and I have been friends for over 12 years now. Since the time we were in kindergarten, we would always laugh, dance and even sing together. She was very active as well, as she loves to join in badminton competitions. She’s always been this cheerful, playful, and active girl. Out of all those years we’ve been together, I never expected her to be in such condition as she is now. Gail was recently diagnosed with lymphoma cancer.
Her family is facing financial struggles now as her medical bills are ballooning. Any support financially and emotionally is of great value for her recovery. I really hope that you could help us get Gail the things that she needs and help her be back to her cheerful, playful and active self. Thank you for making time to read my plea.
Jaa Ann —
I have known Gail for 4 years now but she became my best friend back in 2018. We spent most of our time together by eating weekly at the Lawson branch near the Ospital ng Makati talking about the most random of things. Gail wants to be a doctor someday so I guess just sitting for hours watching the front of the hospital is time well spent for her. Please help her reach this dream. Imagine all the lives she will be able to save in the future. We are extremely grateful for any effort that will be exerted to help her—from cash donations to spreading this campaign.
Despite being two years younger than me, Gail always knew so much more about life than me. She thinks like a grown up most of the time. When we talk about our lives and share our experiences with each other, she somehow always manages to teach me even the smallest things. But I knew deep down that she was a kid at heart. She would wear a big smile whenever she talks about her dreams and passion, just like a kid receiving a present during Christmas. Please let her continue to wear her big and beautiful smile until she reaches her aspirations in life by lending her a helping hand with her fight with cancer. Thank you so much!
We're friends that shared a lot of stories, fun, and especially food.These past few months I witnessed how hard it was for Gail and her family that she was suddenly diagnosed of cancer despite being active in school. In the days we were together, I know that she’s someone that plans far in the future, but her condition shook her and her dream. She and her family are now having difficulties in finding a source of income for her treatment, due to the pandemic. Please help us to boost her motivation and aid for their financial struggles. It would mean a lot. Thank you so much!
In ninth grade we were both appointed as directors of our play for our English class. Although we had our fair share of difficulties, somehow we managed to pull through with her leadership. It was her strong sense of conviction (and undeniable gentleness) that helped our section get high marks for that project. I want to see how much farther she can go as a person and dreamer, and I am asking for your help, for her sake.
We were busmates from Grade 7 to Grade 9. I remember our small talks and rants about our high school lives when we were in seventh grade. I really want to hear her enthusiastically share her stories again, may it be something about love or the KPOP groups that she likes. Once again, I am knocking on your kind hearts for assistance in covering her medical expenses, so that she can normally live and genuinely enjoy her high school life.
I thought Gail was a bad person, no kidding, she had this intimidating aura around her that made it difficult for me to approach her. I thought that we could never be friends, but that's where I was wrong, she's a very caring and friendly person. I've never met someone like her. Even if she goes through a lot of problems, she can still carry a huge smile on her face like nothing happened. I just want you guys to help us protect our friend's smile.
I always viewed Gail as one of my closest friends. Back in Grade 9, I was constantly bullied by our other classmates and somewhat outcasted me but she always told me that I shouldn’t care about what other people say and think about me. It’s funny because chicken wings always remind me of her. It’s odd but that’s how our circle of friends somehow coped with the stress from school works and activities. We often went out to eat chicken wings together. I truly love her and she means so much to many people.
I was going through a rough time during ninth grade. My self esteem went rock bottom and my problems started piling up when Gail gave me a letter saying how I am amazing at handling problems and she admired how I get along with people. After reading her letter, my confidence boosted and allowed me to overcome my problems. I was not a showy person, so not all people noticed that I had problems but Gail gave me hope, she gave me courage. And now I want to give back by helping her raise money for her treatment.
I have shared lots of memorable moments with Gail. I was in the same group with her for two years for our research study and I have shared the milestone of contributing a study for science with her. Aside from talking about our study, we talk about our common interest in the Hallyu wave. We were together when I first attended my first fanmeeting. She is always making people smile and is full of talent and potential. I am asking for your help for my friend be able to experience the best in life without constraints.
Starting high school, Gail and I didn’t seem like we were gonna get along, but as time went by we actually got along pretty well. She made my first year in high school really fun. We became bandmates and I would be lying if I said that I didn’t enjoy every bit of it! She’s a wonderful and jolly person who deserves all the love and care. I am hoping and praying that she gets through this. Stay strong Gail, we’re here for you.
I've been friends with Gail since we were in eighth grade. She always loves to talk and hang out with her friends when she has time to. She often took responsibility as the leader in class plays or any class-based activities. I always see her determination and her hunger to be a better leader/person. I just want her to realize her goals and dreams and her to continue further, I'm here as her friend asking for your help for her and her family's sake.
Gail was one of my classmates during my last year in junior high school. I didn’t know most of my classmates personally before, mainly because I've never been with them during the past years. However, Gail was one of the first few people whom I got close with, as she is really friendly. Whenever my other classmates were playing outside of the room, Gail would approach and ask me if I would like to join them. I got closer to my other classmates since then. I would also like to add that she's someone who would gladly do favors for her classmates. I used to ask her if she can print me handouts in a particular subject, and she would always say yes. She's somebody who really cares about her friends, someone who you can rely on.
Only in grade 10 did I get the opportunity to be classmates with Gail. And in that one school year I saw her amazing talents. Especially one time she was one of our main characters in our class production. She was also a very jolly person with a good sense of humor. Although we didn't become close friends, I can sense that she is indeed very friendly. I support Gail in her fight to beat lymphoma cancer, praying for her full recovery and spreading awareness of her condition. I am also flattered by the amount of support my classmates in De La Salle University gave to her even though they don't know her personally.
Go Gail! I know you can do it and we support you!
