I am Venus Lutel M. Avelino with stage 4C colon cancer with multiple metastasis. I am diagnosed while 4 months pregnant but delivered the baby healthy. I have had undergone 2 operations already and need lifetime chemo treatments of Avastin to stabilized may Peritoneal Abdominal tumors. I have 3 little kids aged 7, 4 and 1 year old Miracle baby. The cost of my medicine is 77 to 90 thousand pesos per session and I need it every 3 weeks. The doctor said that I need it for life. We are now losing funds because I am already fighting for 2 years. 2 operations I've gone through cost a lot as well as medicines, CT Scans and laboratories. I also need to buy colostomy bags.
I want to live longer. The doctor said that my cancer is already inoperable and there's no more cure. I need to undergo chemo for life every 3 weeks to extend my life and be with my kids a little longer.
