How do you tell your friend your heart breaks for her ? Our friend knew about her illness and kept it all to herself, suffering through the thought of her possibly leaving her two sons and husband, alone. She has two too young sons and a husband working as a driver overseas. They couldn’t afford getting sick. They just financially couldn’t. We only came to know of her cancer when it was already at its progressive state. Lying on her hospital bed, her family struggling to keep up with the medical bills, her husband, overseas, is trying his best to come back to her side. It’s tough for her. She can’t lay in the hospital bed without feeling guilty, about the mounting bills. Head, Neck Lymphoma and Liver Metastasized is what she’s going through…We, her high school friends need to raise money to at least prolong her life, long enough for God to make His miracles. Our hearts are broken seeing her like that we are appealing to you all to please lend her your generous hand. Let worry no more for her family specially her kids, both in elementary. She is just 42. Please have mercy on her and help her.

The past two days had been hard for Myra. She had a central line on her neck as her arms couldn't handle the influx of medicines passing thru her veins via IV. She also needed blood badly due to an internal bleeding caused by her liver which had been affected by cancer. As soon as her platelet stabilized Doctors are going to drain water from one of her lungs. Her husband Alvin from Saudi Arabia finally made it home for her. As of now, the details of her health are scarce perhaps due to her family's burden of taking care of her and sourcing out available resources to facilitate huge medical burden. We understand that. Anyway, much of her medical expenses will be going to the machines hook up to her and medications.
It's her eldest son's birthday today, by the way. We hope they at least celebrated it well. I heard plans from our friends. I'm just not sure if it pushes thru since we all have work loads to meet plus the distance from each other due to some in other parts of the world makes it impossible for some of us to be at her family's side as much as we would wanted to. Nevertheless, we sincerely hope that Myra's family is holding up nicely.
Thank you for much for your donations and we hope there will be more, for Myra's sake and her beautiful family.

Our deepest apologies for not updating you regarding the passing of our friend Myra last Tuesday, July 24. It is with deepest sorrow to let everyone know of her passing. Myra ( Mhai to most of her friends ) was a truly good person, with a very big heart open for everyone. She is a loyal friend and a very lovely person. Simple and kind - that's what best describe her. Myra fought up her last to finally see her family and friends one last time she is now resting in God's arms and is blessed immensely. Our hearts goes out to this wonderful person, Mhai we will miss you. You are forever in our hearts and I am sure you shine in heaven as you did now.
( I was emotional on my personal grief that I had to lay low my social media in respect to my dear friend, for that I asked your patience and understanding as I say my personal grief over here. )
Mhai, I met you as one of the greatest person I've ever encounter upon. You are a friend with an open mind ready to listen even to the most outrageous outbursts of mine. My time in high school was a blast thanks to your never ending support and encouragement. We are a total opposite but your simpleness and Godliness made you a very admirable person. My friend,rest. God will bless your family to never worry about them. For all your smile and discomfort God will pay you for that. You are now in heaven - happy in Lord's care. But I miss you… and I'll forever miss you. I love you Mhai, I'm so glad to have met you. Thank you, Mhai. Thank you.
Note : Your donated funds will go to her immediate family ( her husband and two young boys ). In behalf of her our sincerest thanks. God bless everyone.
