Move For Gemma is a fundraising initiative for the benefit of Ms. Ma. Gemma P. Detera.
Gemma is loving wife and a mother of one. She loves conquering mountains and going to adventure trips. She is a business development and marketing manager by profession but took a hiatus from her longtime corporate career when she was diagnosed with Bell’s Palsy and Hypertension last March.
Last June 9 2018, she met a vehicular accident on her way to a tour at Ilocos Norte and was admitted to Don Mariano Memorial Medical Center where she was given immediate care.
After which, she was brought back to Manila and admitted to The Medical City where her operations took place.

By God’s grace, her operations were successful and recovery is on its way. But because of the impact of the accident, it took a toll on her health and resulted in her disability.
Aside from that, our hospital bills reached almost 700,000 with the help of different people, our own funds. PCSO, Philhealth we are left to raise 300,000 to the credit card which was used to pay the hospital so she can be discharged.
