My Mom, Liberty Pascual, has a tumor in her breast. She was diagnosed with stage 3b breast cancer.
Right now we are not in a good financial situation. It is just me and my mom after she lost her husband, my dad, to kidney failure a few years ago. We still managed to get by with our small store but had to close it during 2021 as a result of the pandemic. I myself (Her son) am unemployed. I am looking for a job but due to lack of experience and with health problems myself, am having trouble getting hired.
We rely on her pension which is around $120 a month, half of which goes to monthly utility bills, leaving us with very little for food and other necessities. Often times our relatives and friends provides us with assistance for some food and groceries, but we we were $400 in debt.
We appreciate any donation that you may give. It will go to Mom's treatment and medication, some will go to ensure she gets healthy meals and clean drinking water, and also to make sure she is comfortable and safe at home.
Please feel free to only donate an amount you are comfortable with, even a small amount will help tremendously.

Chemo and SurgeryUpdate posted by Aldrin Pascual at 01:54 am
We managed to talk to a surgeon today. The doctor said that Mom would go 3 to 4 sessions of chemo before proceeding with surgery. The chemo will reduce the size of the tumor before operation. Once we are done with at least 3 sessions of chemo, we will return
