Hi everyone, this fundraising is for Noreen a bright child of Christ. She now needs our helping hand and our generous hearts.
2 Corinthians 9:7b
"For God loves a person who gives cheerfully."
Know her story by reading the attached letter from her family:
Noreen is an eighteen year old girl who dream of becoming a lawyer and a writer someday. She is vibrant, sweet, jolly, helpful, and extraordinary girl towards her friends and to us, her family. She always bring the best that she could in order to make us proud of her. She is an honest girl who wants to make a better world not only for herself but for everyone.
Almost everything went well until it changed last October 2017. She was rushed in the hospital after feeling the symptoms of nausea, vomit, and headache. Since our place is quite a remote area, we need to go for a 158 miles or 12-hour travel via boat in order to get a final diagnose of her illness. She went into bone marrow biopsy and was diagnosed of Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML), a very aggressive kind of its form. The leukemic blast was about 93% so our family decided to immediately send her for treatment.
Noreen went on a chemotherapy session last October 26 - November 1, 2017 and now currently admitted at for continuous red blood and platelets transfusion. The medical treatment is expensive and although our family is trying hard to get loans, it is still not enough in order to cover the rising expenses. For the next week, she will undergo to another bone marrow biopsy and another sessions of chemotherapy.
Noreen is very persistent and very determined to live in order to pursue her dreams. She is eager to fight this test of her life- to see more of this world, to experience beautiful things, and above all to serve God. She told us one time how happy she is because of the people around her. She told us how much she feel loved by those people, how they took efforts to pray for her and send her some blessings. She feel blessed eventhough she's suffering from such illness. In fact, we never did saw her crying from pain, nor told me that she wanted to give up. She ease the pain and smile after every vomit she makes. She is a very strong girl who is very much willing to live long. That, makes our family more determined to give her the treatment she deserves and most off all the prayers she needs.
Our family financial status is not stable to support all medical expenses but we are positive enough to meet good samaritans that will help our bunso get through this battle of her life.
With this, our humble heart is knocking to yours.
