My mother, Maritess Prado has been an amazing cancer warrior for years. Diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer in 2014, she courageously underwent through a mastectomy and a series of surgeries and chemotherapies to get better. After going through the chemo cycle, she was then notified that her breast cancer has been cleared in 2016. However, we found out that the cancer has then metastasized to her bones in early 2017. Once again, she fought head on with another series of chemotherapies. My fighter of a mom pushed through with all the strength and positivity that she has. After going through a series of tests and treatments, it was then announced that my mom has reached stage 4 and was given a few months to live. Despite this situation, she went ahead and sought other opinions and treatments. We thought things will pick up in the beginning of 2018 but mama's health started to deteriorate drastically, she's had a confinement that took a couple of weeks last month. Just when we thought that she's had the worst, we found out that the cancer has already made its way to her lungs as well causing her to have pneumonia and difficulties in breathing.
As of now, mama is admitted in the Intensive Care Unit in one of our local hospitals here in Laguna. She is fighting even until now, even if all hope feels gone. I, together with my family, are seeking for your kind help so we can raise funds to continue mama's treatment. We are truly hoping for your help, in any amount, together with your prayers to try to give mama more time, to be with us. Every cent counts. We will all be eternally grateful for your help. All donations will be used for Maritess Prado's medical bills and recovery.
