No amount of words could ever describe a parents’ pain when an innocent, smart, sweet, very kind and respectful little boy who is used to leading a healthy life and loves playing and dancing became all of a sudden TERMINALLY ILL and confined in a hospital and asks you innocently "I miss going to school, mommy. When will I be back to school?" and "When will I be able to walk again?".
November 2017, after celebrating the 5th birthday of our son Jensen, he was diagnosed with the world’s WORST brain tumor in existence which is DIPG (Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma). Doctors said that the case of Jensen is Terminal/Stage 4, and that the position of his tumor deems it unoperable because it intertwines with the healthy cells so deep in his brain stem which has the most vital function to staying alive. His chance of survival is 0%. His chance of living for 3-9 more months if he did radiotherapy (which is ONLY TEMPORARY) is 3%, before the Tumor aggressively grows back again faster. The ONLY option given to extending his life is Radiation Therapy which cost a HUGE amount.
The fight to strengthen Jensen includes a critical battle against time. Please help our Son Jensen in any way you can. 😢💔🙏🏻 Jensen already had his radiotherapy sessions which was finished last february 2018, which left us with almost nothing financially. His life was extended by the radiotherapy up to now which was the only optio we are offered from every hospital we have been through, just the same as the kids diagnosed worldwide, because this type of cancer still has NO CURE until today. That was more than 50years ago already and nothing has changed to help these kids survive. The children are our future, and yet here they are dying helplessly. 💔 We were sent home after that radiotherapy treatment and was told to just make memories with him and to just give whatever my son wants because the reality is that he will eventually die.
We CANNOT AND WILL NEVER ACCEPT that. We will not let our son die without doing nothing because JENSEN WANTS TO SURVIVE! 💔 He doesnt want to die and he is very scared for his life. I couldn't write this down without being torn apart and heartbroken into pieces again everyday, remembering all the days he has suffered from too many IV injections, scary sedations, traumatic hospital stays and just NOT having a choice to live normally like a child supposed to. Before he did his radiotherapy sessions, he was really really suffering and felt horrified he wasn't able to walk or even stand alone. He cannot even swallow well because he is drooling alot; the left part of his body was paralyzed, his eyes were turned inward, he has trouble speaking well, and was very devastated at a very young age. We don't want that to happen again after he finished radiotherapy so we opt to finding alternative cure for jensen since we have no other choice given from any other doctor, so we found a naturopath from manila who prescribes jensen to take herbal supplements which he drinks 5 times a day, he is in a high dose vitamin C, was advised to a strict plant based diet which wasn't hard for jensen to follow because Jensen is used to eating healthy and mostly vegetables. He is also taking capsules and powder form medications to hopefully help his brain recover and fight this monster. Another alternative medicine which we use topically in his spine, foot and tumor site are the Essential Oils. Lots and lots of essential oils most especially Frankincense, Cedarwood, Copaiba, Citrus oils, Lavender and many more to help alleviate his symptoms and improve his quality of life while hoping and praying that this could be our God’s way of giving miracle healing to our little boy.
Now that he has finished that and responded well from radiotherapy which could be given only ONCE because of how dangerous it can be the second time around. Right now that he has been taking mainly all his alternative medicines for the past few months, even though these medications are really really expensive to sustain weekly, his symptoms were still improved until today and he can walk and play and dance again and just be so happy doing those things while with his family who he loves so much as much as he loves his Papa Jesus. He is being able to eat again normally and not drool and choke and most importantly he regained his strength and confidence to be out and show the world how strong he is. Please help us keep jensen this way and beat this monster DIPG to be the FIRST EVER SURVIVOR! Because DIPG is very aggressive and can come back anytime it wants. Please help us to sustain his medications which cost too much, because we just couldnt do it alone. 😢 We beg for your help to keep our Jensen alive and we can still see give him his alternative medications, because we believe that its working miraculously by the Grace of our Lord PLEASE do not give up on Jensen. Please show him your love and support. Please give him a chance to grow up and be with us, to inspire people and to honor God Almighty.
We believe that only humans are limited but God's hands and our faith all together can move mountains. Help us give a chance for this little warrior who is fighting a battle that he does not deserve and no other kids deserve. His eyes are still excited to see the bright future ahead, grow old with his sister who he really loves, and just grow up to be a man someday and have his own family and we will be forever in debt for the kindness and love you will share with us. ❤️
To God be the Glory! May God bless your kind hearts!
