My brother Nikoo, 21 years old, was diagnosed with Testicular Cancer February 2016 last year. His biopsy result revelead his is an Embryonal Cell Carcinoma, a non-seminoma type of Testicular Cancer. Sadly, the most aggressive one.
He had 4 chemotherapies then following 2 procedures - herniorrhaphy and orchiectomy. He was supposed to have at least 6, but with all our resources exhausted, our family could only provide him 4 and we went home against medical advice because we literally had nothing left - completely drained and have amassed debts over time with us soon to be evicted from the house we are currently renting. We have no properties to pawn or sell. Not even a house we could call our own.
Two weeks ago, my brother was rushed to the hospital because he was already vomitting and has turned yellow. He was admitted after that and had another cycle of Chemotherapy (the 5th one). And this time, laborary results (CT scan and tumor markers) have shown his cancer has reached his liver and is now at Stage 3.
As of this writing, he is confined at Davao Regional Hospital (all 5 previous chemos were done at Brokenshire Hospital in Davao) and has not started his chemotherapy yet because he still has problems with his blood that must be corrected first. His hemoglobin is very low as well as his neutrophils (he has severe neutropenia which can be corrected only by a drug called Filgrastim which is 2574 pesos a vial). We don't have much support network but thanks to a very few wonderful individuals who have helped us procure blood for his transfusions and directed us to individuals in the said hospital who has been helping us with his treatments through referrals. But this is not zero billing, you see. There's no such thing as free lunch.
We are not giving up yet and we will never do, that is why I have set up this campaign to give my brother a fighting chance. We would be incredibly grateful for any support you are able to give for his medical expenses. If you could also pray for him, it would really mean a lot to us. We need prayers. We need a miracle. And we need your help too.
