Help Mighty Xia fight Cancer

Hi Everyone, I am Sophia and I have a very dear couple friends going through every parent's worst nightmare, having a kid with cancer .  Let me tell you about their story.

January of this year when one of my closest friends since elementary sent me a message to include her daughter to our prayers because she's sick. Her name is Xia Martina Magboo. She was diagnosed with Juvenile Myelomonocytic Leukemia (JMML) . It is a very rare type of children blood cancer that usually happens in children younger than 2 years old. In JMML, too many myelocytes and monocytes (2 types of WBCs) are produced from immature blood stem cells called blasts.

It was not detected during the newborn screening as baby Xia was then a bouncing healthy little cutie. It was like 3 months later when Xia threw some blood continuosly and was admitted at Philippine Children's Medical Center where she was diagnosed. From then on, Xia needed a weekly blood transfusion which requires too a huge amount of money.

With continuous medication, Xia's getting better until sometime first week of October she had a severe pneumonia causing her to breathe hardly. She was confined at the Pediatric ICU of Philippine Children's Medical Center afternoon of October 8. They are spending roughly around 15,000 daily while in the ICU. Xia will undergo on Monday, October 23, a Tracheostomy, a medical procedure related to blocked airway or a need for prolonged respiratory or ventilator support.

Due to mounting hospital bills and sometimes Xia's parents would take time off from work to personally attend to her,  I am appealing to you my facebook friends, relatives and even the wider facebook community/groups some  financial assistance to support Xia's battle.  More so to assist the family with the extra expenses they're facing.  Mighty Xia has been in the hospital for two weeks now.  A lot of friends have already been generous in extending help.   Studies show a stem cell transplant is the treatment of choice when possible as it offers the best chance to cure JMML. Said procedure in the Philippines starts  at  around 500,000  up to 1 to 3 million depending on the treatment and sessions per therapy . 

Please continue to pray for Xia's full recovery as our Sovereign God is the best physician and nothing is impossible with God.

"Behold, I am the Lord, the God of all flesh. Is there anything too hard for me?"
- Jeremiah 32:27
