Help Lujil Warrior Princess

Hi! My name is Maurice Bainto and My 11 year old niece was recently diagnosed with high grade osteosarcoma, a type of bone cancer that is usually found at the end of long bones, often around the knee. Last November 2019 a lump grew on the lower knee of her right leg. At first they thought it's because of a bump from riding her bike. So the parents (Aldwin and bham) tried alternative medicine (traditional local massage) but it seems that the lump continued to grow after a month. When she had a check up with a pediatrician she was asked to take x-ray and MRI but no fractured bone was found. Instead, Aldwin and bham were referred to an ortho-oncologist in De La Salle Medical Center but due to financial constraints they decided to transfer my niece to Bicol Medical Center for the second opinion. She went through another MRI with contrast and biopsy operation last February 3,2020 which was then later confirmed as Osteosarcoma. When she had a chest CT Scan last March 2020, It was found that the cancer had already metastasized to her lungs. Lujil is a fighter. She is determined to be well and recover. She loves to spread positivity on social media (Facebook and Instagram) despite what she was going through. Her parents were blown away on how well she handled her 6th chemotherapy session and how she accepted the fact that she will be losing her right leg. She believes that having one leg or being disabled does not determine her future. Lujil is currently in Grade 5 at Castillo Elementary School and was a consistent achiever but she had to stop schooling since November 2019 due to her sickness. She wants to become a chemist and discover cures for diseases including cancer. I established this fundraiser to help ease the vast financial burden on lujils parents for they still have a long battle ahead with more chemotherapy sessions after leg amputation. We are knocking on your kind hearts to request for prayers and financial support. We request that you continue sharing Lujil's Go fund me campaign so it may reach as many as kind-hearted people as possible. May God bless you, and thank you so much from the bottom of our hearts. Maurice, Laine, Aldwin and Bham
