My Sister in Law , Joy got diagnosed a year ago of Stage 2 breast cancer and never told anyone of us family . My brother her husband and her kept it a secret . Till a couple months ago. They were very scared and in the denial . They Didnt want to bother anyone . Till Joy started having pain in her breast and getting weaker . They finally went to another doctor to get second opinion . Stage 2 breast cancer and immediate treatment needed. Its been extremely hard for them and I have been helping them Financially but I can only do so much . Joy didn’t want to have a GoFundMe page at all. She feels very exposed and raw. I kept convincing her because , she needs the treatment as soon as possible . She has two beautiful children 13 year old boy and 11 year old girl . I told her to do this for them and us her family. After putting it off for 6 weeks she agreed.
So here I am . My sister Joy needs help for her treatment . No Health Insurance in the Philippines will be able to help Joy. Medical expenses are paid in cash . Let’s put it this way . If you are sick in the Philippines and you don’t have money , no hospital no doctor not even government can help. That’s the truth ! Sad to say .
Situation right now :
Joy’s family and I were able to help get her to St Stamford Modern Cancer Hospital in Guangzhou China .
For the following treatment
1) intra arterial intervention
2) cryo therapy
She needs total of 4 treatments.
After the 4 treatments she will have to continue to see her doctor and do endless expensive tests and medication .
My brother is with her right now staying with her at the hospital. He had to stop working to be with his wife Joy. So no one has any kind of income to cover medical bills .
We pray for her to be home at least by Christmas to be with her children
and family in the Philippines and continue the treatment back home.
My Sister Joy needs your help .
Bring back Joy to Joy’s family.
