John Achilles Ontog, known to his family and friends as Achi is a 14-yr old, Grade 10 teenager who loves playing basketball with friends and excels very well in school. He is a sweet brother to his younger sister Meera. His mom Marilyn is a licensed Electronics and Communications Engineer who chose to stay home and take care of the kids. While his Father, John makes a living by taking people to tours in the many beautiful tourist spots of Luzon. The family lives a simple and happy household in Imus Cavite, with the kids enjoying and doing good in school, and work for John has been rewarding and fulfilling in many ways.But came February 2023, the happy home was engulfed with worry and fear with Kuya Achi being diagnosed with the very rare Melanoma skin disease, a cancer of pigment producing-cells called melanocytes. These cells give our skin colors. Melanoma’s known to spread widely to other parts of the body and soonest treatment is necessary to prevent further growth...time is of the essence.

A surgery was made on Achi last February and his recent Pet Scan result, released today, April 1, 2023 at La Salle Medical Center, Dasmarinas City, Cavite revealed a Stage 3C Melanoma - the cancer cells have spread to the lymph nodes. It was a sad news to all of us, but more so to the family especially to Achi who have remained positive since the diagnosis. With this new findings, the boy is in much fear for what lay ahead - a long battle of therapies, or surgeries maybe? We cannot tell yet as we are waiting for his oncologist to discuss the treatment plan. We lift up everything to Him above for healing and guidance.

Achi’s a strong boy filled with many plans for the future and we would like to make sure that he reaches his dreams. We will fight with him in this battle and we are knocking on everyone’s good heart to help us raise funds for Achi’s treatment and alleviate the financial strain of the family.

Any amount is greatly appreciated!

Thank you so much and Godbless!
