Hello everyone... For those who do not know, our very loved Mama Gem needs to undergo MRI scanning (magnetic resonance imaging) and more tests as early as now and after her MRI scanning. Her health started to deteriorate a year ago (2019) after the death of his brother (uncle Danny) when she complained her back was aching. We brought her for a check up and the doctor told us that it was just a muscle soreness and can be remedied by pain killers and rest. Before the pandemic, we can say that she is still okay though we are noticing some changes on her attitude and physical appearance. And she’s getting tired more easily. With the onset of pandemic, we noticed that her condition was deteriorating much faster than the previous months.
While this has been happening over the year, there is one more condition that we noticed a few years ago. Lumps have been growing on her head which we suspected to be a sebaceous cyst. It was smaller before and wasn’t painful according to her, but last year it was beginning to grow larger and at a faster rate. Right now it became more noticeable since she lost weight. And by the end of the year, another lump started to grow at the left side of her face. Right now, she’s unable to walk and rise up on her own. And she has developed short term memory los since the end of last year.
We are knocking on your hearts and we are humbly asking for your help so that we are able to have her condition diagnosed and treated as soon as possible because she needs a lot of work up. As of the recent pandemic, it has been very hard for us to support her. Our father already passed away several years ago and only the 2 of us (me and my sister) have been supporting our mother. But while her condition worsened and because of the pandemic, we had to sacrifice and choose to spend more time with her as she really needed assistance. One of us had to stop working. We hope that you share your kindness and generosity to our family for us to be able to support mama Gem and God’s will, make her condition better. Thank you very much and God bless.
