2 years ago, he had colds with runny nose and clogged nose that would last for a few days that later lasted more than a week.
Later on, he complained something is hurting inside his left ear. So after seeing a doctor we found out it's a phlegm. It's stuck in his ear and the air passage in his nose is blocked, it affects his breathing . And there is a tumor growing inside between his nose and ear .
Days, weeks and months passed, he's not getting better. He's still having cold and his ear still hurting. Until one day, he had nose bleed and then we begin to worry when he started having nose bleed more often. We took him to the doctor and He has undergone CT scan and Biopsy and thats when we found out he's in stage 3 sarcoma, cancer of the soft tissues.
In the next few days, He had seizures and he's becoming unconscious. Through the help of some good people from our community, we were able to take my father to a bigger hospital.
He has undergone MRI, brain contrast . That's when we found out the tumor is growing and moving up to his brain, That's the cause of his seizures. The nerves in His left ear and left eye and his neck was affected as well as all the left side of his front face.
After 7 days in a hospital (August 22 - 28) they discharged us and put my father under home medication for 2 weeks. And then after 2 weeks, we returned to the doctor and he said we need to do the chemotherapy and Radiation as soon as possible .
Due to a finacial crisis, we refused to do the treatment. We thought and hope that herbal medicines will make it better, we only give him fruits and vegetables that helps fight cancer while he's taking maintenance medicines . But after a month, he had a severe mouth sore, that's when he starts to eliminate his food intake . He couldn't eat much like what he used to. The mouth sore made him loss his appetite and it was very painful that he couldn't even drink water.
Now, his throat is closing. He couldn't open his mouth more than 1 inch . His gums have swollen . It's impossible for him to take any solid food , even soup is painful to swallow.
It's so hard for me to watch him suffering and can't do anything because we can't afford to pay the treatment, we can't afford to pay the only way and only hope to cure him. Maybe its time to do something .I'm asking for help to raise money for his treatments. Please . I don't want to lose hope that he'll be cured. I hope there's a chance for my father to live a little more ..
Thank you everyone for helping us for my father's treatment.
