Ken Win Against Cancer – Fighting Bilateral Osteosarcoma

Update posted by Kirt Russelle Peconada On Sep 20, 2018

For all those days we spent together, Ken, before cancer made you ill, it's good to look back at some of your happy moments, di ba?

We build on our past and look forward to your future

*******************************************************

Mahilig ka sa ice cream, Ken.

Pero ngayon, medyo wala ka nang gana sa matatamis. Minsan ay nasusuka ka pa nga kahit tubig lang.

Pero yung di rin siguro madaling makita ng iba, ay ang iyong mga mata. Minsan ang lalim ng iniisip at minsan din ay ang kulit ng liwanag ng mga ito.

Laban, Ken. Para sa ice cream and for the future you see through your eyes.

This week's update - #KenWinAgainstCancer

1. We have the official MRI result - bilateral osteosarcoma, both distal humerus

2. We have the official bone scan result - osteoblastic activity involving distal end of both femur

3. We have the official CT scan result - no noted lesions nor pulmonary mass

4. We have several plain x-ray results - no remarkable findings

5. Ken-ken did his 1st cycle of cisplatin and doxorubicin - no noted adverse reactions, except for infrequent throwing up

6. He is scheduled for his 2nd cycle after 21 days or so.

Overall, Ken-ken's response to his first cycle is great. And besides the already noticeable lump on his two knees, there have been no other findings on his imaging studies.

But, his appetite is down and he really needs to up his food and water intake

We have yet to receive our first medical bill, but no matter the cost, we will see this through

Very good, Ken, kay ok imong pag receive sa imong 1st chemo cycle, kaya nimo na ha

Daghan pa tag agihon pero salig lang ha.

For us to be strong, you need to be stronger, Ken

1. Out of the total online donations received, P1,290 was spent on his MRI contrast gadoteric acid and P1,300 was paid for the reader's fee. This is aside from the fees charged by Paypal for receiving and transferring funds. Daily expenses for food and fare are not sourced from donations and are out-of-pocket costs.

2. Ken-ken had his MRI last Tuesday, pending official results.

3. Ken-ken had his chest CT scan last Friday, pending official results.

4. He had his 2nd biopsy yesterday, pending official results.

5. He is already due for chemo within the next 24 hours and as soon as his fever goes away.

6. He is being scheduled for a complete bone scan at another hospital, and the cost has already been guaranteed by the House of Hope for children with cancer.

And as always, we keep saying our prayers, together with you, for Ken-ken's complete healing and recovery.

As of August 31, 2018, Ken-ken has finally been scheduled for an MRI of both his lower limbs. We are still working to secure a schedule for his chest CT scan.

Patience, these days, is often hard to come by.

Ken-ken is admitted at the Children's Cancer Institute Ward in St. Camillus Room for boys together with at most four (4) other patients who are either new cases or undergoing chemo / radiotherapy. Around the clock, we are dreadfully aware of the effects of chemo / radiotherapy.

On the bed to our left is a teen suffering from rhabdomyosarcoma and when he was given doxorubicin, it only took a couple of hours before he started shivering like crazy and got feverish. He vomited a lot and he banged his head on his bed due to a severe headache. Doctors had to put on hold the chemo by then.

On the bed to our right is a 12-year-old kid suffering from pineal gland tumor who just started chemo. He is overly sensitive to noise and light and is often irritable. He also kept throwing up, often looking like black coffee grounds.

We also shared the room with an 11-year-old who suffered from brain tumor. He couldn't move or talk or eat at all and his family was all he had to keep on going. Doctors had to transfer him to isolation due to high fever when he finished chemo.

Seeing those other kids, we couldn't help but be scared and unsure of how Ken-ken will react to chemo. One things' for sure, though. His mood has already altered and we often need a bit more patience to deal with him once he throws a tantrum. We can't blame him. We don't really know how he feels or what he's thinking. He's scared, but he doesn't show it. He smiles, but his eyes are deep with thoughts of what will come.

We try to make him understand. Our doctors are as friendly as they can ever get.

But no matter how much we try to comfort him, his worries just gets passed on to us.

So for this day onward, we pray for PATIENCE and A LOT OF IT.

Patience for what is happening and for what is to come.

Our brave little boy, Ken-ken, is still due for various medical tests including blood tests, CT scans, MRI's, 2D echo and others that his doctors may recommend. As of August 28, 2018, this page's start date, Ken-ken is still awaiting admission at Southern Philippines Medical Center (SPMC) here in Davao City, Philippines after his check-up at the Cancer Institute because of a mild fever.

Once the fever and its cause is taken care of, he'll be scheduled for treatment.

We cannot, as of this writing, determine the exact cost of his journey, but we are somehow blessed with a lot of social services here in Davao that can significantly reduce our bills. However, there are some tests that still require out-of-pocket expenses. Add to that, the daily expense of taking care of Ken-ken will surely take a toll on his family.

His father drives a pedicab while his mother works various jobs while taking care of their three (3) kids. Ken-ken is the middle child and, without a doubt, the sweetest among them. Their eldest is 10 years old while the youngest just turned four (4) last June.

I became involved with their family because of Ken-ken, when he first ran into me while I was in review school to get my CPA license. He came up to me and asked, "What's your name?" And that's how it all started for us.

Now, we stand firm against osteosarcoma...against cancer of all types. We have Ken-ken in our corner, buffing up before throwing his knockout punch against cancer.

OUR PRIORITIES:

For now, our top priority is to acquire a RECLINING WHEELCHAIR, since he's having difficulty sitting upright for too long. He'd rather lie on his back with his legs straight and cushioned by a pillow.

While waiting for his chemotherapy schedule, we'll be saving up for the wheelchair. After that, it'll be an all-out war against cancer.

For anyone who wishes to help, we are ever grateful. May you all have a wonderful and healthy life ahead.

We'll keep you posted with updates throughout Ken-ken's win against cancer!

Thank you all for the overwhelming support for Ken-ken and his family. He already did his first chemo cycle and his response to the drugs was generally ok. He will be scheduled for his next cycle in about 21 days or so. As of this writing, Ken-ken’s sodium level is back to normal and we are already waiting for his doctor’s discharge order. His appetite is slowly returning to normal (having eaten a whole slice of his favorite pepperoni pizza last night) and he’s in a good mood. We have yet to receive our first medical bill, but like we said, whatever the cost, we will see this through. We hope for your continuing support by sharing the link to his fundraising page and enjoying each winning moment in his battle against osteosarcoma. Ken-ken loves to hear from all those who are helping him. Lots of love, you guys!

I have lost my moms, yes - two moms - to Cancer. And I have witnessed how hard they've went through - emotional, spiritual, mental stress - not to mention the financial stress this dreadful disease brings to the family. I am hereby pledging to support Ken all the way. I hope this small amount may help the family in any way possible. God bless you Ken, God bless your family and may God bless all whom will help and pray with you.
