Hi! I'm Bel from Quezon City, Philippines. I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer Stage 3 last September 2021. The diagnosis came as a surprise to me since I’m still 31 years old. I’m young, healthy and one would think that I’m still at my prime and living the best years of my life. But then came a plot twist-I have cancer.
The cancer diagnosis hit me hard especially since my dad just passed away last year, September 2020, due to leukemia. My family and I are still grieving and recovering from our loss. Unfortunately, we have to go through this ordeal again.
After my dad passed away, I became the breadwinner of our family since I am the eldest. So hearing the cancer diagnosis was devastating for all of us. Upon the advice of my doctors, I immediately underwent surgery/MRM last October 2021. The cost of the surgery already exhausted my health insurance/HMO so now I am raising funds to continue with my treatment. I still have to go through 16 cycles of chemotherapy, 30 sessions of radiation therapy and hormone therapy for the next 5 years. There are also expenses for laboratories, scans, procedures, and medicines needed throughout the course of my treatment.
Despite everything that happened, I still think that life is worth living. There’s still a lot of things I haven’t done, dreams and goals yet to be fulfilled. This fundraising will help me continue with my treatment and give me a fighting chance to win this battle.
It would mean the world to me if you would support my journey towards healing and recovery. Thank you very much and may you be blessed a thousandfold!
