My Siblings and I are asking for help on my Mama's medication for fighting Guillain Barre Syndrome or GBS, a rare autoimmune disorder where the body's immune system attacks your nerve and cause muscle weakness and paralysis. It had already affected her throat muscle that she is unable to breathe without a tube. If left untreated, it will also affect her lungs. Unfortunately, the medication is unaffordable and we are needing Php500,000 for her immunoglobulin medicine.
My Mama collapsed last Friday, May 17, and everyone thought it was due to a mild stroke. After her CT Scan, Mama was able to speak a few words and were able to move her hands and feet. We thought everything will be fine and she is just under monitoring in the ICU. However, around 9pm and after a few physical tests conducted by the neuro, she suspected that Mama might have a GBS and immediately requested for the medication which would cost as around 500,000 pesos. If not cured, it might also affect her lungs.
My Mama has always been straight forward and a fighter. People were scared of her no-nonsense attitude. Not all people may understand her but one thing is for sure, she was a great Mom. She was able to send me and my sibling to college all on her own without a job and by being a small store owner. She did everything just to make sure we have things that we need. Now its is our turn to do everything for her.
My brother and I are the only ones who is working right now and my sister is an incoming freshman. We can only cover the hospital bill and have already taken out loans just to cover further hospital expenses in the future. So here I am asking for any amount from friends to strangers to help us. I'm not sure how to give back but my sincere thank you to all and God bless ❤
