Help Save Mark

I am conducting this fundraising in behalf of my cousin, Charmie Obradas to help sustain her brother's medical expenses. Last month in October, Mark was suffering from back pains along with painful urination until lately bowel movement was no longer possible. This prompted them to bring him to the hospital. It was found out that he had intestinal blockage. He was initially admitted at Bohol Provincial Hospital where different tests were conducted to trace the root cause of his illness. CT scans and ultrasound were done and lab tests were performed. The doctor detected a lump in his bladder and possible prostate enlargement. They waited for the scheduled surgery but decided to have him transferred to Perpetual Succour Hospital in order to gain better supervision there since Charmie is currently working in Cebu and it would be convenient for her and relatives to visit. That way they can take turns attending to Mark. They waited for the CT scan results from the initial attending hospital in order for the current attending doctor to proceed to the next step. When the results of the CT scan were out, Mark was finally sent to the operating room for his surgery. They had to create an incision on his abdomen to get a sample of the tumor and at the same time perform colostomy to divert the waste which under normal circumstance, is not made possible due to the blockage. On November 5, the diagnosis was released. I am going to quote the diagnostic comments as: Non-hodgkin's lymphoma but PNET, small round cell sarcoma and neuroendocrine tumor were considered as findings. He is recommended for therapies that will help identify the cause of the cancer like immunostaining and to perhaps minimize the spread of the cancer cells. I am not very knowledgeable about these medical terms but based on my research and the doctor's advise, he has to undergo therapy to stop the cancer cells from spreading. We are holding on to the hope when the doctor said Mark's prognosis is good with the right amount of treatment and therapy. His father is an OFW in Qatar and the sad part is he couldn't be here to support them because he has to make money for the family much worse pay for the hospital bills which already totaled to almost Php200k to date. Charmie have two other younger siblings who are still dependent and her pay is not enough to help sustain the family's needs at the moment. We are sincerely knocking on your kind hearts to help us in any amount you can to help with Mark's hospital bills and therapy treatments so he will gain full recovery. Please help us pray that he will be strong enough to conquer this disease. In Jesus name, His ultimate healing will be felt. God bless us all.
