Our beloved mother, Emily Pan Paras was diagnosed with liver cirrhosis on April 10, 2018. Our hearts crumbled as we heard the news from the doctor and learned about this disease. Cirrhosis is a late stage of scarring of the liver caused by many forms of liver diseases and conditions. The liver is a very vital organ that carries out several necessary functions, including detoxifying harmful substances in your body, cleaning your blood and making important nutrients. After that day, we were determined to do everything we can to help her regain her strength and fight this disease.
Our mother is a strong individual, a single parent who raised us siblings all by herself. She was a mother figure not just to us, but to many of our friends as well who she treated as if they were their own. She is the most selfless, loving, and most caring mother that she could be. She always sacrificed her needs and did everything she can so that we got what we needed to live a healthy and successful life.
Our mother has been in and out of the hospital and on numerous medications. It breaks our hearts seeing her in so much pain and witnessing her suffering from this disease. She is currently fighting for her life in the hospital. Her health is deteriorating and her liver, a very vital organ in our bodies, is failing, because of this disease and we are at a race to get her a liver transplant. Her kidneys are starting to be effected and we need to act fast in an attempt to keep her from getting worst and save her life.
We are trying to save up for this life-saving procedure and we need all the help we can get. Any amount is a big help and will be so meaningful to us to give our dearest mother a second chance in life. She is only 56 years old and has so much more to offer the world.
Thank you everyone and let us all pray for Mama.
“Heal me, O Lord, and I shall be healed; save me, and I shall be saved, for you are my praise.” [Jeremiah 17:14]
