Brothers and Sisters, I, together with our whole family is deeply seeking for your help to pay for our mother’s hospitalization and support ongoing medications. My mother is in critical condition due to various complications brought by her sickness, leukemia, which has been confirmed now to be in acute stage. She urgently need to undergo bone marrow test and chemotherapy. At the moment, she needs to have regular dialysis, cardio therapy and blood transfusion whenever her red blood cells drop to a certain level.

My mother had leukemia since we were young, but it was manageable then through regular medication and doctor check-ups. It was never easy even before, because her regular medication is very expensive especially for us who are just ordinary individuals. Not to mention the struggle that our family had when my father died of cancer (sarcoma) a couple of years back.

However, she had been in and out of hospital since June. It was so sudden when my mother became seriously ill that she was rushed to the hospital emergency department several times. Her hemoglobin and platelets dropped, needing 9 bags of urgent blood transfusion. Her joints began to sore and she fell very ill and got easily tired and weak for no reason. She had a cough that literally never stopped and did not let her sleep, which made her restless and had trouble breathing properly.

I thought it was the worst, but just three weeks ago we almost lost her when her condition deteriorated even further, it was then when rushed her again to a public hospital - emergency dept, that doctors detected the kreatinin level in her kidney was so high, and it was a must that she’d be given dialysis the soonest. She also had to be intubated urgently to help her breathe.


Unfortunately there was no available machine at the public hospital available for her, and so my sister, at the time was alone with my mother, has had no choice but to go to other hospital. She was then admitted to The Medical City but even in this hospital at that very moment, the regular dialysis machines were fully occupied. The doctor has advised that there is still a chance, but will use the slow dialysis machine however the cost is really high. We unfortunately had no time to spare but to take whatever is available to save my mother.

Fortunately, she responded positively to the first session of dialysis but until today, my mother is still in the hospital and in unstable condition. Her heart rate shoots up whenever she goes for dialysis and doctors need to constantly monitor her condition. She is still in critical medication as her recovery only depends on the response of her body.

As of this moment, the running bill is already at 700,000 pesos, purely hospital bill and not including all the medicines, and miscellaneous together with everyday expenses.

I would greatly appreciate any amount you can help in order for us to settle the bill in the hospital and get by with continuous medication for my mother in a public hospital.

She will still need to undergo bone marrow examination that would probably lead for chemo theraphy, also continuous dialysis, cardio theraphy, blood transfusion and lab tests.

On the other hand, despite this great challenge our whole family is facing, we are very thankful to God that my mother’s life is extended and we knew that theres still countless great things to be thankful for. I knew very well that me and family can not give back whatever help you will give, but we will pray hard to the Lord Almighty thru Christ Jesus to repay you 10 fold – this, I am certain HE will , and that he will give even more than what is asked of HIM.

A little help goes a long way, and I hope that you will help me share this link to as many friends as you can and hopefully we will be able to raise enough funds to pay for the hospital bill and support my mother's ongoing medicatiion.
