Hello, my name is Maris Jacobe-Hermosura, and I am reaching out to you for support for our father, Ariel Jacobe. On January 15, 2024, our Tatay has been diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML). Getting hit with a big blow like that by surprise can turn anyone’s world upside down. But having the right mindset and being surrounded by the right people, makes our tatay’s battle to beat cancer full of hope and optimism.

Our Tatay has always been a ray of sunshine wherever he goes. And together with his music, he is deeply loved by all who know him. And now that he faces unforeseen health challenges, we, his family, don't want to overwhelm him as he tries to beat cancer and let the financial burden weigh further on his journey.

Some of us may be aware that treatment for leukemia is quite costly, but strict compliance with the treatment plan is necessary to have higher chances of remission from cancer. The treatment plan for Tatay has 3 PHASES.

PHASE 1 (DONE) (January 15 - February 9, 2024 ) – INDUCTION PHASE: Lasted for 3 weeks. The first course of chemotherapy that our Tatay has undergone (6 consecutive days of chemo treatment). This is where most of our funds have been used up for blood (whole blood, platelet) transfusions, laboratory blood tests, hospital admissions, medications for infections due to low white blood cell counts, etc. A week after the INDUCTION PHASE, we were advised to be admitted again for PHASE 2 of the treatment plan which is the CONSOLIDATION PHASE.

PHASE 2(ONGOING) (admitted on February 17, 2024) – CONSOLIDATION PHASE. This is when we started to set up the GOFUNDME account. This will have 4 cycles of chemotherapy for 4 consecutive months. The procedure will be done every month while admitted in the hospital. The collected funds will be used for hospital bills, medications, chemo sessions, etc.

PHASE 3 – MAINTENANCE PHASE. We will be advised depending on the biopsy results which will be taken after the Consolidation Phase if Tatay will have oral or IV infusion chemo medications.

We are asking for support, as your generous donations will help cover the medical expenses for Phase 2 (CONSOLIDATION PHASE) of the treatment plan for our Tatay.

We are grateful for any contribution you can make, whether it’s through a donation, sharing this link with your network, prayers, or words of encouragement and letting Tatay know that he is not alone in this fight.

We will be giving you updates on how’s the 2nd cycle of the treatment plan for tatay’s doing.
