Cynthia's cancer treatment

Hi everyone, we Cynthia Magno's family in the UK. You may know us as Virginia, Michelle and Maxine.

We're creating this page on behalf of our wider family circle in the Philippines and the USA to help raise funds for our sister/aunt Cynthia.

Cynthia flew to the UK last year to help us when James Haher passed away, leaving a giant hole in our lives. She spent six months being a companion to Virginia, taking care of baby Maliyah, and being a shoulder to cry on during our darkest time, putting aside her own health concerns.

It was revealed to us just a few weeks before she flew back home to the Philippines that she was dealing with inflammatory breast cancer. Some may already know Cynthia had lost her eldest daughter Carla to this disease.

It was impossible to initiate treatment in the UK with such little time remaining on her visa, and we had already incurred fees of over £300 just for a general consultation at a local NHS hospital. It was essential to get her home so she could be seen and begin treatment as soon as possible.

Cynthia has now been officially diagnosed and has already begun her chemo journey. Her hair has started to fall, but the chemo has significantly reduced cancer growth. The battle isn't over. She needs to continue the chemo treatment and beat the disease for good.

As we all know, the costs for healthcare in the Philippines are overwhelming, and while as a family, we are doing the most we can to support her, we need help. We know she has friends in the UK and abroad, so we wanted to set up a platform for any contributions.

We also understand that with the current cost of living crisis, times are hard for everyone. No donation is too small, and we're very grateful for anything you can give, even if it's just sharing this link.

Thanking you all from the very bottom of our hearts,

The Haher, Reyes, and Magno family.
