Cris, 47, is a single mother of three. An only child, she was raised by her grandmother since she was an infant. Having come from humble beginnings, Cris had always known adversity and what it means to have a difficult life. It is what has always moved her to make this world just a little bit better than how she knew it, never failing to help and sharing the little of what she had. Fresh out of college, she started working for a bank and then at BDO where she remains employed to this day. When she was a young adult, she joined the Young Adults Program (YAP) of the Christian Family Movement. As she deepened her spiritual life, she also began sharing her faith experience to other young people, giving retreats and inspiring them to have a deeper knowledge of God. She was an active member of the YAP choir at the Redemptorist Church.

It was also at this time when Cris fell in love, got married and had 3 beautiful children. But just when their youngest was barely three, Cris’ husband left, leaving her to take care of their young family. Feeling heartbroken and betrayed, she turned to the comfort of loyal friends, the compassion of the Blessed Mother and the unwavering love of God.

She bore this great challenge of her life with strength and renewed dignity. She poured all efforts in raising her children well, working tirelessly to provide them a home and send them to good schools. Now, Dane is a 3rd-year computer engineering student, Andi is a 2nd year electronic computer engineering student and Dindi is in Grade 10.

Cris is a survivor, a fighter, a trusted employee, a faithful friend, a dutiful daughter, and a devoted mother.

In March, she experienced a variety of symptoms that made her think she had a stroke: loss of balance, weakened knees, tremors, slurred speech, a drooping eyelid. A visit to the doctor and a brain MRI revealed a tumor. In July, she was diagnosed with meningioma (a brain tumor) and needs immediate surgery.

The surgery is estimated at P800,000. Being a single parent and the main provider of the family, CRIS NEEDS HELP.

We hope, as we pray, that a successful brain surgery will be the first step for Cris to regain her normal faculties, restore her strength and continue to care for and provide for her family.

Through your FINANCIAL SUPPORT, Cris can have her BRAIN SURGERY SOON! The funds raised will be used for this surgery to REMOVE THE MENINGIOMA growing near her brainstem.

This initiative is being done by her friends who stand by her and rally with her in the biggest challenge she has ever faced. We are here to let her know she is not alone in this fight and we are knocking on your hearts to help us help Cris and her young children. There is no amount so little or so big, and any amount is a step towards reaching our goal.

Now more than ever, in this time of the pandemic, times are tough but we are especially grateful for any potential support you may extend to Cris and her family.
