Earlier this year, our lives have drastically changed and the Big C is to blame. Dad was diagnosed with Stage 2 Oral Squamous Cell Carcinoma, a rare type of cancer that greatly affected his lack of appetite and loss of taste. His weight started to drop instantly and his vision got blurry day by day.
Right after he was diagnosed, we sought immediate medical attention to help remove a tumour that was growing inside his right cheek. The surgery was a success but we still had to go through chemotherapy and 33 cycles of radiation which caused discolouration on his face. After all that, he finally "graduated" and decided to take a break from working. His last treatments were in August, he had a quite a long resting period.
Fast forward to October 19, 2018, my Dad was quietly sleeping in his room. For all, we know he was just trying to recover from all the sleepless nights he's had the past week. When my sisters and brother-in-law went to the room to check on him, they found themselves in the most traumatizing situation. My Dad has already been experiencing a stroke. We rushed him to the ER and is currently in the ICU where he is being monitored round-the-clock.
I am sure that you all have Dads and would do the same if he was also going through a serious medical condition. Any financial assistance that you can provide us in this important fundraising campaign will be gratefully accepted.
On behalf of the Kare-Go kids, we thank you in advance for your kind and generous support of our cause.
