Hello Friends, I am Julie Ann Precious Gabito from Cebu City. My dear friends, you all know that my life has been hard to me for the past years. Last August 27,2017 i was diagnosed with acute radiculopathy and my three disc in lumbar area has been dehydrated already, according to my Neurosurgeon and orthopedic surgeon, anytime by now I will be paralyzed because the flow of the water and blood in my spinal has been blocked cause by the internal spine injury and the thickening of surrounding ligaments. I have done multiple MRI test hoping for a positive result as well as spinal therapy for 2 years and more. Still..these past few months, many times I was confined in the hospital for severe back pain and numbness in my entire right body but up until now, I am is still not recovering well and i am still enduring the pain.
Due to prolonged hospitalizations, My Doctor already suggested that it would be better for me to proceed with the next step which is to have an operation in my spinal and that would be adding a titanium or artificial disc in my L5-S1 and a few set of injections for disc dehydration. My problem is I can no longer afford the amount of the operation since i have spent so much in my therapies and hospitalization for almost 3 years now. Plus this is going to be my 4th operation. The first operation I had was a Fallopian tube removal last Dec 2016 which it took me months to a year of recovery. Second and third is a Tumor removal in my both armpits last April 2018(underarms).
Daily life is very very hard, my body is getting weaker everyday and the numbness in my legs and arms are getting worse but I am still showing strength and bravery because i have this mindset that I don't want people to feel sorry for me. I have also experienced being paralyzed and couldn't moved for how many hours/ day and I was so scared. My dear Friends, this option may not save me from this illness but Please help us raised funds for my injections and upcoming operation, My Doctors didn't open up about the cost of my operation yet because he doesn't want me to be worry about it but I am fully aware that it would cost me not just peso so I need to be ready. Once we have enough financial support and my immune system will cooperate then we will schedule the operation right away. Dear friends, relatives and love ones.. I still wanna live long, I still wanna spend more time with you all, As one of the reserve forces in Military organization..I still wanna serve our country and our fellowmen. Please help me raised a funds and Please do not judge me for creating this fund page as I have no choice anymore. Thank you so much for reading this, God is watching and My deepest Eternal gratitude to all of you. God bless!
