Hello everyone, I hope you all are well and thriving. I am Mizpah and I am creating this fundraising page for my nephew Skyler. He is 4 years old and was just recently diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL). First, signs and symptoms were recurring but we did not know at the time that it will lead to ALL. Then he was tested for MRI. There was a tumor found on his leg (bone), near his hip. Couple of months passed, he was rushed to the hospital for stomach pains. Again, we thought it was only tummy ache. Further tests revealed that his white blood cells were higher than usual. Bone marrow was extracted and unfortunately, it was indeed Leukemia. Currently, they had to go back and forth to one of the hospitals in Tacloban for further treatment. His attending physician has advised for Skyler to be treated as soon as possible as early treatment will give Skyler higher rate of recovery. Due to Covid 19, his father (my brother) is unemployed. Because of restrictions from Tacloban and our province in Biliran, everything has been strict in terms of travelling again due to number of successive Covid 19 patients.
As of now, Skyler's state, he has lost weight and numerous spots are visible on his body. When he was rushed to the hospital, more than 15 bags of concentrated platelets and 4 whole A+ blood bags were administered to his body just so his body can function well (as at the time, he was very pale). It really is a painful sight for me, as a parent and his kin. We are also selling random stuff that we can find in our household to add to the funds for Skyler's treatment. Every life counts. Everyone deserves a better life free from pain and sickness.We hope that you can spare any amount for Skyler.
Updates will be posted on this page as soon as available.
Thank you all for your compassion. Stay safe and Take good care. God bless us all.
