Edgar and Lilac Alesna-Arcos have a 16-year old daughter, Rianna, who was diagnosed with Stage 3 Classical Hodgkin Lymphoma a year ago. She had to undergo 6 cycles of Chemotherapy and Radiation Therapy to treat the cancer. However, after completing the cycles, the cancer remains.
After trials from hospitals in different countries (Philippines, Singapore, Hong King, China, Japan, USA), the Arcos Family decided to bring Rianna to the MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston Texas last June 2015. Rianna's condition was reevaluated and diagnosed at Stage 4. The hospital highly recommends a High-dose Chemo and Stem Cell Transplant estimated at USD$1,000,000.00.
With your help, Lilac will be able keep Rianna in one of the best hospitals that can give her a fighting chance.
This GoGetFunding campaign aims to raise USD700,000 or PHP31,500,000 to cover the financial costs of Rianna's ongoing treatment. We also have an account for bank deposits:
- BDO Savings Account
- Edilberto Capulong II
Through this ordeal, Rianna remains positive, strong, and unwavering in her faith. She has inspired us by her courage and we want her to know she is not alone. We not only want to assist financially but also to give comfort, knowing that her family, relatives, and friends are all rallying behind her. It is in this spirit of giving and solidarity that we get together for a concert to celebrate Rianna's strength and faith in "Songs for Rianna".
Please join us on Sunday, September 13, 2015, 3PM at the 12 Monkeys Music Hall and Pub, Century Mall, Makati City.
We hope to see you there!
