But who is Ate Marianne?
Ate Marianne is a survivor.
After being diagnosed with breast cancer, Ate Marianne fought well and hard to survive as she braced through chemotherapy and other medications. She managed to survive it, in exchange for the draining of their resources.
On her road to recovery, they are struck with another calamity as their father died suddenly. It was painful. Ate Marianne and her family were with him every weekend, enjoying the simple joys of life, only for it to end abruptly.
As she faced her follow-up check-up for her cancer with high hopes, a nodule was seen in the pleural based of her right lung. A CT scan-guided biopsy was done and was unfortunately malignant. Further tests was done to test if it is a primary lung cancer or a metastatic breast cancer. It was a metastatic breast CA; it means her breast CA had recurred. She has to undergo a weekly chemotherapy with specialized protocols for her case. It may seem unbelievable, but this is real. This is another hurdle in life thrown to her and her family.
Ate Marianne is a loving mother, wife, sister, and daughter.
She is the mother of Cali, bright, cheerful and a girl too smart for her age. Even with all the difficulties that her family faced, she is still optimistic, and she never fails to bring the light to their home. At 8 years old, and still believing in tooth fairies and is fond of giving nicknames, she sings and dances to cheer up her mom and grandma.
