My name is Katrina, and I'm raising funds for my mom -- Nenita Garcia. Since we were kids, my mom had been the bread winner. She was able to provide us our needs to live and survive. It saddens me to see her in this state and that I could not give back my gratitude to her.

In October 2022, my mom had a high fever for a few days then numbing and pain on her whole body began. When she was hospitalized, tons of laboratory and diagnostic exams were made but none of them pin pointed what my mom's illness was. She experienced excruciating pain and could not move her entire body. After series of tests for a month, she was diagnosed with POLYMYOSITIS.

Based on an article, "In the USA population, the rate of development of this autoimmune disorder is about 0.5 to 8.4 cases per 100,000 individuals." But there is no information about the statistics in the Philippines.

In the same article, it said that Polymyositis is a relatively uncommon autoimmune disorder.

My mom was cleared to be discharged from the hospital with a recommendation for Physical Therapy because there's NO CURE. She went home in November 2022.

My mom's current status is being bed-ridden, the pain is now isolated on her right lower extremity (right thigh, leg, ankle, foot). She cannot move on her own and cannot sit on her own. My brothers take care of her and assist her for everything she needs - eating, bathing, etc. I am away from them right now because I have been looking for a job and have been taking care of my kid too.

We are seeking help for us to settle the remaining bill. We received help from government agencies, family, and friends but we are still left with 300,000 Philippine Pesos (equivalent to $6000 to $7000) hospital bill. I lost my job in January 2023, and I have not gotten the luck to get a new job. Aside from the bill, I also would like to seek help for a better quality life for my mom.

Thank you for the help.

Thank You!!

Update posted by Katrina Garcia at 09:28 am

Thank you to everyone who helped! We collected ₱60,000+ in donations (from Gogetfunding and offline donations) and used that amount to pay a portion of the hospital bill. Additionally, my brother's monthly salary deduction, his extra hustle, and my weekly savings from my salary reduced our debt balance to ₱57,000.
