Paolo’s AML cancer treatment fund

Two years ago my warrior of a boyfriend beat cancer. Paolo had been diagnosed with Acute myeloid leukaemia (AML) in 2015 aged 24 and had a successful stem cell transplant with his dad being the donor. He has been doing great with recovery, living, surfing, and enjoying a normal life this past year and even celebrated two years cancer free in December 2017. Only a few months later during a routine check up in February 2018 our worst fear became a reality, a biopsy revealed 76% cancer cells in the bone marrow. Paolo had relapsed after 2.5 years of being cancer free.  Paolo began his second greatest battle against this awful cancer
 
Unfortunately healthcare in the Philippines is entirely private - and as a result of his previous diagnosis insurers are not willing to cover him. Due to this being a second time for Paolo to battle cancer, there is no financial assistance available to fund Paolo’s treatment. We have created this GoFundMe to fundraise Paolo’s medical treatment to enable him to receive the treatment he urgently needs to fight this disease.  

Paolo's treatments will include two high dose chemotherapy and a DLI, (this is a cancer treatment where his dads stem cells is infused into Paolos bone marrow).

February and March 2018 
Paolo received two brutal high dose chemotherapy treatment in order to achieve remission. In the space of two months he battled through e-coli in the blood, pneumonia, liquid in the lungs, an infection that was weakening his heart and was moved to ICU, shingles virus on his face but Paolo fought through it all and was able to recover. He has proved time after time he is able to overcome any obstacle that’s thrown at him. Finances should never be a reason to restrict Paolo’s fight. Let’s get Paolo the treatment he needs to fight this and to be able to live a normal life like any other man in his 20s. We need to raise another £7,372 - 520,660 PHP to reach our target and complete Paolo’s medical treatment. We can help Paolo WIN this fight with your help. 

Thank you for giving us so much energy with each donation! Please share and spread the word, let's keep the momentum going
