Your little help goes a long way.
I would like to seek help for my mom to fight and survive Breast Cancer Stage 3C.
Last October 2018, we rushed my mother Lourdes Bayangos, to one of the provincial hospitals in Bulacan because she had a hard time breathing because of severe pain caused by breast wound. She was given necessary pain reliever but we eventually transferred her to JP Sioson General Hospital in Quezon City because the hospital we rushed her to didn’t have enough facilities to do the needed test for her. She underwent Biopsy and after few days, we were discharged and billed in the hospital for P45,000+ after Philhealth and senior citizen’s discounts. My mother is 70 years old, lives in Sta. Maria Bulacan, single mother after my father died in 1999. After result of biopsy and series of tests, she was diagnosed with Stage 3C Invasive Ductal Carcinoma or Breast Cancer Stage 3C with Diabetes Mellitus. She was given take home medications but on second week of November, we rushed her again to the hospital because the pain relievers that were prescribed to her didn’t have enough effect to tolerate the pain so she was again confined and was given higher dosages of pain relievers and antibiotics and we were billed in the hospital for P30,000+ after discounts. After few consults from Dr. Raquel Ecarma, Internal Medicine Infectious Disease, Dr. Joy Galang, General Surgeon and Dr. Frederick Roque, Oncologist, we were advised that she needs to undergo Chemotherapy. After 8 Chemotherapy cycles, she will undergo a major operation Mastectomy and series of RadioTherapy sessions and other tests.
