Ms. Rechelle, a single mother of five children, has been battling Stage 3 Cervical Cancer (Type C) since the middle of the year 2023. Though facing symptoms like chronic pain and exhaustion from treatment, Ms. Rechelle performs gigs occasionally as an event singer. She continues working as an e-commerce associate - showing remarkable strength and resilience amidst overwhelming circumstances for herself and her family.

To combat her sickness, her medical team has outlined an urgent treatment path combining six weeks of intensive radiotherapy and chemotherapy. This journey begins with precise CT scan planning, followed by a regimen of 25 radiotherapy sessions.

Unfortunately, we're in a tough spot with the costs of her cancer treatment, and it's crucial to lay out the details clearly, especially since we're covering all expenses out of pocket, without any insurance support. Here's what we're facing:

The CT Simulation and planning cost is ₱19,273.

The initial procedure, known as IMRT simple, also comes in at ₱19,273.

She requires 25 sessions of radiotherapy, each priced at ₱2,109.

The treatment plan concludes with 4 sessions of brachytherapy, with each session costing ₱3,500.

The total for these medical procedures alone amounts to ₱105,271. However, this figure doesn't include the cost of necessary medications, a significant part of her treatment regime.

This financial strain is compounded by unexpected costs that can arise, such as special dietary needs to keep her as strong as possible during her treatment, and other unforeseen medical expenses not covered by standard treatment plans.

Initially, we considered getting her treatment at a government / public hospital to help manage costs. However, the reality of that option hit us hard. The waiting list for radiotherapy is incredibly long, and we were told it could take more than two months before she could even start her treatment.

This delay is more than just a waiting game; it's a serious risk to her health. Her doctor has stressed the importance of starting treatment as soon as possible because her cancer is aggressive and progressing quickly. Waiting over two months for treatment could allow the cancer to advance to a point where it becomes much harder, if not impossible, to treat effectively.

This underscores the urgency and the critical nature of the support we seek. It's not just about medical bills; it's about getting Ms. Rechelle the care she needs without dangerous delays. Every moment and every bit of support counts more than ever now.
