Raising HOPE for Nerissa Tan Fernandez

On September 2019, my mom started experiencing episodes of nausea and vomiting, fatigue, loss of appetite and bouts of loose and abnormal bowel movement which prompted her to consult a doctor. It was found out that she was internally bleeding from peptic ulcer and her blood pressure was going down, so an emergency blood transfusion was given. Four bags of blood were then transfused until she stabilized. 

We thought that was only the case, however, my mom eventually started having on and off fever and other symptoms. As the doctors ran tests, it was realized that she had Typhoid Fever and Hepatitis B. My family thought the nightmare ended there, but then a 4 cm mass on her left kidney was discovered, prompting her to go through surgery to remove her left kidney. 

On October 9, my family’s greatest fear became a reality: cancer was the diagnosis. The cancer on the kidney had already advanced and metastasized on her liver; now, she must undergo immunotherapy. 

My mom has already lost significant weight, experiencing severe weakness and a loss of appetite but she's still hanging on to her hope. 

My mom is a loving and a God-fearing woman. She's the kind of woman who would sacrifice her wants and even needs just to provide the needs of her family. She is selfless and has the biggest heart.  

We are humbly requesting for prayers and donations to financially assist my mom in her battle against cancer. 

Including all medication and other expenses, my three siblings in the Philippines and I have already spent almost 1 million pesos and we are expecting the expenses to continue rising in the coming weeks. At this moment, we are hoping and praying for my mother’s recovery as well as the financial burdens to be alleviated by any help given to us. My family and I would like to humbly ask for any financial support that you may be willing to provide; we are so grateful for any amount, because we know that even the smallest acts of kindness will go a very long way.
