My name is Alaric Cabiling, and I started this fundraising campaign on behalf of my sister-in-law, Liza Cabiling. Liza Cabiling seeks to raise funds for Mr. Ralph Kevin Aquino, who is a member of her team and was diagnosed with Pituitary Macroadenoma.
pituitary adenomas are slow-growing and benign, which means they are
not cancer and do not spread to other parts of the body. However, as
they grow big, they can put pressure on nearby structures, such as
the nerves that connect the eyes to the brain and cause symptoms. Ralph had undergone excision surgery back in 2017. However, to
prevent the tumor from growing back, radiation therapy treatment
needs to follow the surgery. In Ralph's case, he could not follow
through with the treatment due to financial constraints. Today, the
treatment will cost approximately Php 300,000.00.
the tumor has grown back to full size and is pressing on his optic
nerve, which may, if not treated, cause him to go blind.
treatment is for 30 consecutive weekdays, exclusive of COVID
pre-testing, which will mean an additional 14 days of being unable to
work. He has been on Leave of Absence (LOA) since September 1st and
will be back
His salary will be on hold during this time, and our HMO will only
shoulder a mere 10% of the treatment package. As such, he will need
financial assistance to complete the treatment. We implore you to
share whatever amount you can to help Ralph get back in good health
and continue living a full life even with this disability.
