I want you to meet the strongest member of our family, Rebekah Mignonette P. Agriam. She was born on August 16, 2015. Rebekah was diagnosed with a rare type of Cancer called Multi-systemic Langerhans Cell Histiocytosis (LCH) on July 26, 2016, just before her first birthday.
LCH is a cancer in the autoimmune in which immune cells begin to overproduce and attack the body instead of fighting infection.
LCH has affected her Mouth, Teeth, Skin, Skull, Bones, Bone marrow, Spleen, Liver, and Lungs (Last 2 being the most critical).
We’ve been doing weekly chemotheraphy for 7 months now (32 straight weeks) but sadly, instead of getting well, Rebekah’s disease is just eating up her red blood cells and platelets making her very weak at times. Rebekah had already gone a number of blood transfusions to replace the lack of red blood cells and platelets through the course of her treatment.
Rebekah had also been admitted a number of times due to complications like pneumonia. Now, because her blood tests are not improving, her liver enlarged, and she has a difficulty in breathing, an indication that her disease was not responding to the treatment. Rebekah’s doctor advised us to undergo bone marrow transplant.
Rebekah’s chemotherapy alone made our whole family financially challenged, but we will do anything for her just as she does give her all to ward off the disease. At 1 year and 6 months old, Rebekah knows one thing that inspires us all.
Rebekah knows how to fight.
And we will fight until this LCH thing goes and stays away. But this time, we need your help.
We humbly ask for your help to give Rebekah the bone marrow transplant she needs. May the Lord give it back to you a thousand fold.
You can help Bikay through the following.
1. Pray for her healing.
