CANCER SUCKS! At least that's the general idea. And it does! It can hit anyone whether famous or obscure, kind or evil, kid or old. Even rich or poor. But in particular, it takes our dearest relatives away from our lives and devastates everyone in its wake both emotionally and financially. AND NOW, WE FACE THIS THREAT.

My dear aunt Benilda Barairo Duran was Diagnosed on August 5, 2017 with STAGE-4 Colon Cancer. She has undergone Hysterectomy last December 1, 2016. March of 2017 she went to the hospital due to persistent stomachahe and constipation. She again went back to the hospital April, June and July. All for the same ailment.
She was subjected to a plethora of laboratory tests on the first hospital they sought answers to but had inconclusive results as to what ails my aunt. They decided take her to another hospital for medical advice. A few days after she was confined and with a series of tests done on her, our worst fears were realized. She was confirmed by the doctors to have Stage-4 colon cancer. Shocked and utterly disheartened, I was in denial when I heard of this and all the hair in my body started to crawl as I begin to shed the tears I didn't want to let out as I fear I may start a chain reaction of total devastation. For that moment, I felt like the world has somehow stopped. Now imagine my auntie Babes' Husband, son and daughter when they heard of this (pictured below)

The family needs assistance in sustaining her medical needs. She relies now on Combiflex and a dextrose for her daily food needs which costs a fortune to maintain for a family of modest income. Once she's regained enough strength, as a means to fight this disease, we are to arrange for her chemotheraphy.
Her husband has stopped working to take care of her. Her son has just recently graduated and is still looking for a job and her daughter is still in school. We are pulling out all the stops, taking every calculated option and knocking into your hearts for any and all help you may extend to us. If you know of any alternative herbal treatment she may try, please let us know (Contact us below)
I am a BIG believer in miracles everyday and I believe as well that miracles can also be achieved by the collective effort of everyone of you.
If you can share enlightening videos/photos of celebrities, eye-opening political articles and opinions, mundane celebrity shenanigans or even entertaining cat videos, I ask for your assistance in sharing and spreading our campaign to prevent the loss of a loving, caring and awe-inspiring person.
I ask of everyone your prayers, assistance and encouragement in these trying times. I ask of you, my family, acquaintances, friends and enemies, to help us battle this dubious threat. To take a stand. To battle for our Benilda Barairo-Duran!
