Good day! My mother Jane Cheryl Padilla, 48 years old, has been complaining of headache for several months, with no fever cough and other symptoms. 2 days prior to consult, she developed generalized weakness with no other symptoms. She also developed right side weakness with facial asymmetry, slurring of speech and inappropriate answers. We all thought that she suffered a mild stroke. Until..
On the day of admission, she was admitted under the service of Dr. Macalintal at ASIAN Hospital and Medical Center. Laboratory and diagnostic exams were ordered and the results were reviewed. MRI of the brain with contrast was requested with the following results.
1. Left temporal lobe mass with moderate vasogenic edema and mass effects, as described. consider a glioma such as pilocytic astrocytoma.
MR spectrodcopy suggested for further evaluation.
2. Non-specific few hyperintense foci in the bilateral frontal subcortical white matter may be seen in microvascular ischemic changes, gliosis and migraine.
3. Stenosis, Left A2.
She was seen by neurosurgery service and the doctor discussed the case of our mother and we were informed of plans for her to undergo craniotomy with excision of Tumor.
She has Brain Tumor and the doctor says she needs to have her surgery immediately to remove her tumor. She has a surgery next week at UST.
My family including all my aunts, uncles, cousins, friends and other relatives are doing our best to help survive this illness by providing everything she needs. My Uncle and aunt will shoulder the expense of my moms surgery. We are very thankful for them. And so we are humbly knocking on your kind hearts to help us raise funds for her after care ( Chemotheraphy, radiation, medications and Etc.).
We hope that you can extend a generous hand in helping her in any kind. Any amount no matter big or small will not go to waste and will be very much appreciated.
GOD BLESS AND THANK YOU VERY MUCH.
