This is my sister, her name is April Anne Relacion. She's 28 years old and she is diagnosed with Stage 4 Breast Cancer.
My sister always put our family's needs before hers and always cares deeply for us. At a young age of 24, she went to Dubai and worked as a Hotel receptionist to provide for my college tuition and our expenses here in the Philippines. I have always known my sister to be strong. As long as she can withstand the pain, she keeps her problems to herself and face it herself to keep us from worrying. For 4 years she had so many side jobs. Do others' laundry, massage, clean houses just to add up with her remittances to us. Little did we know, she was already facing Cancer alone, treating herself alone. Even she's in pain she's still working for money just to treat herself and at the same time for us her family. My parents got even mad at her because her remittances were diminishing every month. None of us knows what she's already experiencing there. We were just left dumbfounded and terrified as she surprisingly went home in the Philippines telling us the sad news that she has a cancer and it already reached stage 3b and the reason why she could only send us a small amount of remittance is because she was trying to treat her cancer on her own. I can still remember that date, August 28, 2017, it was the worst day for our family. Because she did not want to burden us financially, She refused to undergo chemo therapy. She wanted to treat herself naturally. My mother does not have a job, My Step-Father is the only one providing for us. I on the other hand, am doing every way I can to help raise funds for my sister. I sell different kinds of products online, join every kind of business and work just to raise an amount for her, sadly, it doesn't amount to much, and time is our biggest enemy. Her cancer is getting bigger each day and she cries alot and it pains me to see her like that everyday.
It's been 4 months already, and as you can see in the picture, its already at that condition. 4 months ago it was as small as a baby's fist, now in just a matter of 4 months it's like a giant's fist with a very very bad smell like a dead rat. She's loosing her energy now because the wound releases so much blood evertyime she moves that is why her other part of her body aches for she can't move anytime she wants. And the wound is getting heavier each day. She is experiencing backpain and abdominal numbness. We are afraid that the cancer might spread to her other parts of her body as the doctor explained that it is possible if we will do nothing about it. She cries everytime the pain comes in. I cannot take it anymore seeing her in pain is killing me inside. My friend shared this website thats why I am writing here today. We secretly consulted the Doctor on how much is needed for her Chemo Therapy because clearly natural remedies are not working anymore. We need to raise at least 2 Million Pesos ($50,000+) For the whole operation to start. I am not familiar with the medical terms, I was just focused on the amount needed and how on earth could i raise that kind of amount.
To everyone, reading this post, thank you for hearing my story. I love my sister so much and I want her to live longer and fight cancer because I know that she can, but without funds it will be impossible. That is why my family and I are asking for donations from your good heart to save my sister. I have never thought I would go far like this as to ask help from others, but there is literally nothing I could do anymore and I just want to help my sister. I just want her to be treated and be given a chance to fight.
No amount is too small and we need all the help we can get. May our good Lord bless you for all of your generosity. Kindly include her in your prayers, we still do believe in miracles!
Thank you very much!
