Our family asks you to include my son John Carl Sabejon a.k.a “JC” in your prayers. JC is 17 yrs old. A senior high school in the Philippines. He was diagnosed with Stage 2 NON HODGKINS LYMPHOMA in his mediastinum (between the lungs).
The first week of December 2018, he started feeling pain on his right side, by rib cage, for a week or two. The pain moved to his right shoulder. JC couldn’t take the pain anymore. He was taken to the ER. Since that visit, our lives have changed. Especially for JC, who is smart, strong, loves school and spending time with family.
JC has undergone many tests and procedures. There is a mass as huge as an adult fist. This mass is actively growing. This is also, the cause for his right lung fill with fluid. This is also the cause he is now experiencing lymphedema (swelling) on his face, right shoulder, shortness of breath and severe pain on his shoulder. He underwent a procedure; they inserted a tube through his side and into his right lung to drain the fluid. JC have to undergo 8 cycles of chemotherapy with R-chop(5 strong drugs), which means he has to go through 8 sessions with 3 weeks interval. Plus radiation therapy after his chemo. His chemotherapy is very expensive. The cost P112,000($2,240) per session.
Last Monday 1-28-19 was his first chemotherapy and continues to have removal of fluids from his lung. JC is trying his best to make his life better. It is so hard to imagine how difficult this could be for such a young man to experience. JC is a quiet person who doesn't like to complain but we can see on his face that he is on so much pain, terrified and scared.
