This is Charles, our very humble friend who was diagnosed with stage 4 Colon Cancer. He is only 29.

Before he was diagnosed with cancer, he is a very hardworking person who has a job in an international cruise ship that travels around the world. He is also married for 5 years with his college sweetheart Jomae Quinivista Hababag. The two met on the first day of our college life and became romantic and dating after few months and since then they were inseparable.

They got married on the year 2012 with all of us friends gathered for them as we celebrated their love for each other. After marriage, they tried to have a baby. Unfortunately, things did not go as planned. They struggled to have a baby in few years and got frustrated with it. However they did not surrendered. They went to different doctors to have them checked and followed all of the medications and tests.

On the other hand, despite of all the efforts they are still having a hard time to have a baby.

Until just this 2017 of May, they found out that Charles has a Diagnosis - stage 4 colon cancer (sigmoid mass t/c malignancy with carcinomatosis). He undergone surgery less than 2weeks after the illness discovery were major part of his colon was removed as well as his other organs like gallbladder, appendix and lower diapraghm because the tumor has already spread to some of his organs.

Despite of removal most of the tumors on his organs, He still needs to undergo 12 sessions of chemotherapy, another major operation to reconnect his colon so he can pass waste normally, again an operation to remove some tumors in his liver, as well as lab tests and PET SCAN. He also needs to take organic foods and maintenance medicines.

We would like to knock on your good hearts to help us "give Charles a Chance" to live and fullfill his dreams for his family and hopefully someday, he and Jomae (his wife) could have their own beautiful baby. It is not yet late to believe that miracles do happen.

Any donations will be very much appreciated.
