Gretch Cruz is a devoted wife and mother of two and in December of 2015 she lost her first born due to stomach eruption. 2 months after the loss of her first son on February of 2016 she lost her grandson during birth. 2015 gave their family a bad ending and beginning of 2016 it gave their family a very rough start. It’s been hard on all 3 of them that’s left but they’ve stayed positive and happy and grateful to still have each other. They were slowly moving on and was happy but that was all about to end because in January of 2018 she was diagnosed with stage 2 breast cancer. Her husband is retired and also ill. My cousin a 29 yr old cook is their sole breadwinner. They currently reside in Philippines and in Philippines there’s no such thing as medical insurance, care credit, prescription help or any financial help for any medical reason. Basically, if you don’t have the money to pay up front for your hospitalization or any medical needs then the doctor and hospital will deny you. Her husband had savings and they did chemo therapy for 6 months and after 6 months they’ve already burned through all their savings for chemo and medications so they decided to switch to an “alternative”, what they can only afford which is “herbal medicine”. Unfortunately, it didn’t work and the cancer started to spread faster and she’s now having difficulty breathing. Her doctor advised her that she needed to get back to chemo therapy right away. Her son, Which is my cousin messaged me through Instagram this morning asking me for help. If there’s anything I can do to help. He said that the chemo therapy costs 40000 pesos which is $800 and the medications costs 10000 pesos which is $200. My cousin is young and it was his new born son that they lost together with his brother and with all that, he’s now fighting for his moms survival and have stayed positive and strong through it all. I am kindly requesting for your help in raising funds for his mothers chemo therapy costs and medication costs that their family can’t afford. Any type of gesture of support, prayer and and positive thoughts and any amount of dollar is more than greatly appreciated. I know there’s a lot of scammers on gofundme so I will be posting an update of every withdrawal and every receipt of the donations that will be sent to their family.
I appreciate you all for taking the time to read this. And thank you for keeping them in your thoughts and prayers through this challenging times.
