Xiao's Fearless Fight!
Dear Family and Friends,
Xiao's case is "GIST( Gastrointestinal Stroma Tumor) is extremely rare in children and adolescents, and the symptoms and pathology in these age groups are different from those in most adults. These cases generally present in the stomach, are more likely to show lymph node involvement, and are more likely to spread to the liver and abdominal lining."

We would like to tell you a story about a child with a beautiful soul. Zabdielle Xiao Manahan (Xiao for short) is just a 9-year-old strong, little girl, from Orani Bataan, who is now fighting for her life. For several days, she has been experiencing nausea, vomiting, and severe stomachache. Her parents knew something was amiss and they immediately brought her to the hospital. After going through laboratory tests, CT Scan, the doctors discovered a mass (about size of a grown up human's fist) in the right lower quadrant of anterior abdominal cavity. In case of Xiao, she needs to undergo surgery for the doctors to determine her prognosis and eventual treatment. Fluids have been drained from her lungs in preparation for the surgery and the doctors have advised her to be transferred to a bigger hospital (Jose B. Lingad Hospital) who are more capable of handling these such rare cases. We are humbly asking for your help- any amount wholeheartedly given to help save Xiao's life. We greatly appreciate it because we understand the financial toll this pandemic has brought to us all.
We may not understand what the future holds but we are confident in God's mercy and grace that He will push us through in these challenging times.
Please accept our utmost gratitude for all your help and may God bless you and your families a hundredfold.
