Be a part of saving Merlies life!
We am making this aid for supporting MERLIE in the hope of goodhearted friends and acquaintances, even strangers.
She have stage 4 intestinal cancer. Cancer has 1-4 stages as 4 is the last and ending stage of a life journey. For those who knows Merlie, She has always been the first to support her family and friends, even strangers. An amazing human being with elegance, grace and the biggest heart.
It should also be said that she is hardheaded in the way that she wont show shes in pain but rather give a smile while in pain. Now she wish to give up but we will not give up on her!
We ask humbly for your help. So far,out of pocket we spent, a few hundred thousand Philippine peso (php) , car is also sold for managing the latest operation and now we urgently need your help to continue fighting for her life.
This story started two years ago with periodical stomach and she though it was stress ulcer, but as time went by, in last November 2017 the pain become so unbearable she could not hide it anymore.
In the first hospital she was admitted in, the first doctor wanted to take her appendix, Second doctor couldn't find out much and she stayed 4 days, Went home and the next day again was admitted to another hospital. Here she stayed for 2 weeks that included surgery for ectopic pregnancy but result was then confirmed to be extrapulomenary tuberculosis, yet no proper documented result was given. This was in Dumaguete City in December. Since then she started to vomit any food and liquid.Thereby rapidly loosing weight.
March and April she has been to St. Luke in Mania for ct-scan and endoscopy, (intestinal cancer and the vomiting was due to the intestine was starting to be blocked), and from there was forwarded to San Juan Hospital. Here she had an UN-successful operation on last Tuesday march 24., but they did insert a tube to open up for food to pass.
Merlie urgently needs a much more complex surgery that will cost more and we would be enormous grateful for you to help Merlie to achieve this goal and save her life.
I appreciate you took the time to read and God Bless you!
Ps, if you have the possibility to visit Merlie in the hospital, please do so.
