HERO-MOM's PLEA FOR MORE LIFE

Our mom sacrificed all n left young family of 5 and the Philippines for New York to be a Caregiver and make life good for us. 15 years of selfless toil caring for the aged and the sick but herself deprived of the comfort and warmth of the family just to make us live comfortable, but Brain Tumor fiendishly sneaked in 2015 and knocked her down with Stage 4 punch, but fought she did. And work she did heroically for 2 years even after brain surgery removed huge mass on her left lobe brain.  With many more splintered and small blots left untouched due to its sensitive and risky location in her brain, work, stress, and longing for the family took its toll on her body and she deteriorated in recent months. Doctors at Mt. Sinai, New York accorded her what was due her given her undocumented overseas worker status , restricted medicaid and eventually discharged her for hospice care. The torture of her suffering alone made her personally plead for doctors to extend her life so she can see her family . AVASTIN cancer medicine was prescribed but its exhorbitant cost simply is beyond our empty pockets. With dads early retirement and meager income, life has excruciatingly started to crumble for the whole family with the specter of death of our mom bread-winner staring at us. With help from big-hearted sources, she mustered strength and courageously flew back home last May 20 via a grueling plane travel despite her very precarious condition--just so she can see, touch, and hug her family. She is home finally! And we want to sustain and prolong her. Our love and care doing wonders on her psychologically and emotionally in recent weeks, but we need very badly to  treat her with the prescribed Avastin Cancer Medicine costing P100,000 ($2,000) per pill month. Her daily food subsistence, supplemental medicines, and care needs(hospital bed, wheel chair, walker, comode) have rendered the family financially frozen-broke.  Bills have piled up and ammortizations remain unpaid, but we're singularly focused on extending precious time to be with our mom to still make up for 15 years of sacrifice and to make it known to her that we are doing everything to grant her WISH to prolong her life...even just a bit. Your financial help can make it a reality and make her descent a little more bearable. Have a HEART please as we beg on our knees for your Help. Our Hero-Mom: LOUELA M. SAHAGUN. 57 years  old from Cagayan de Oro City, Philippines. My Name is KAIZAN MIGUEL M. SAHAGUN, 30 years old eldest son from a brood of 5.
