This fundraiser is for my sister, Lenie Rose, who is battling Primary Mediastinal Large B-Cell Lymphoma (PMBCL) and is currently on her third treatment protocol.
On July 6, 2018, she was diagnosed with malignant thymoma with superior vena cava syndrome which required her to undergo a series of chemotherapy and radiation. We finished all these last February 2019 but the disease continued to progress.
Our local oncologist in Cagayan de Oro advised us to send my sister’s biopsy slides for review. The results came in a week later and we found out that she was misdiagnosed. It came as a shock to me and my family but we decided to see this as the miracle we prayed for because PMBCL has a higher survival rate than her past diagnosis.
Ate Len is now on her third treatment protocol because the first line of treatment for PMBCL (which is R-CHOP) failed after she contracted a severe case of pneumonia. And as we strive to overcome this ordeal, it is my hope that you would support us in our battle.
(This was taken during my sister's 26th birthday last September 3, 2019)
I am therefore appealing to you for my Ate Len's current treatment. The goal is to put her on remission so she can undergo Stem Cell Transplant which will give her a 60% chance of cure. Her new protocol is estimated to cost more than P400,000 per cycle—and she needs at least six (6). Any financial support you can give will mean a fighting chance for my sister. We are also doing the best we can to avail of access programs and other financial assistance from various organizations to make sure Ate Lenie’s treatment will not be delayed.
You may also send directly to my sister's bank accounts:
BPI Account #9329158303
BDO Savings Account #006350105841
This may be a daunting task but we know we will pull through with your help.
Please also include her and our family in your prayers. We have always been strong believers that Ate Len is a miracle and that the Lord will heal her in time - we simply have to allow Him to work in our lives.
Thank you for your faithfulness and generosity.
