I'm Johnald from the Philippines. I'm the oldest son of the person you see on the profile that has a huge lump on his right neck. My father's name is Johnald Baes Sr. and he is 61 years old. He was diagnosed with a Lymphoma Cancer - Stage 1, Non-Hodgkin.
What is Lymphoma?
Lymphoma is cancer that begins in infection-fighting cells of the immune system, called lymphocytes. These cells are in the lymph nodes, spleen, thymus, bone marrow, and other parts of the body. When you have lymphoma, lymphocytes change and grow out of control.
There are two main types of lymphoma:
- Non-Hodgkin: Most people with lymphoma have this type.

I've created this fundraising campaign due to our lack of monetary resources. I love my father so much and I'll do anything to help him conquer this illness. I'm the breadwinner of the family. We survived paying his chemotherapy for 8 consecutive months. We are now in his final stage which requires a series of lab tests, meds, and a full-body CT scan, which all in all, costs P60,000 or $1171.00 USD. Everyone in the family was able to gather P20,000 ($390), so we're hoping we could get some assistance in completing the full amount needed for my father's medical needs.
My family and I will greatly appreciate any amount that you can contribute.
Thank you so so much, and God Bless You.
