Knocking your good heart. Last October 2020, my father (62 yrs. old) was diagnosed with Stage III LYMPHOMA - CANCER of the Lymphatic System. After doing the series of lab tests, and PET CT Scan, it has found out that this has spread already through out the other organs of the body particularly at the pelvic area.
Way back September 2020, my father had a difficulty in eating and speaking due to the tumor he had at his tonsil. This is also the reason why he loss more than 5kg in weight in just 2 weeks. His immune system went down. He had difficulty in sleeping due to the mass of tumor blocking the air passage in his throat.
October 2020 - he undergone biopsy and other lab tests to find out what really the illness is. We spent almost $2,000 (Php200,000) which was donated by our friends and relatives to remove the mass of tumor in his throat. Until such time that the doctor told us that he had a cancer. It was a difficult time for my family. And being their only daughter/child, I need to be strong for them. And being a breadwinner, I need to find a way to save the life of my father.
1st Chemotherapy Session (November 11, 2020) - we immediately scheduled a chemotherapy session for him to prevent the further spread of cancer to other organs. The fund we used here came from the donations of our good friends.
His chemo session is every after 21 days for 8 cycles / sessions. He is then scheduled on December 1, 2020 for the 2nd chemotherapy. Unfortunately, we are still lacking of fund because the cost of treatment is too expensive. Along with the chemotherapy, there are other medicines being used to treat the cancer, one of these is the Rituximab which is very costly.
I honestly don't know where to find such a huge fund/amount for all the chemo sessions. I don't have a stable job in this moment because my work has been affected by the pandemic Covid19. My parents are dependent on me. But I'm not losing hope. I'm knocking to each one of you to please help my father win over cancer. I believe that through you, YOU are sent to us by God as an instrument and answer to our prayers.
Your Donations will go through the following:
1. Rituximab (medicine used to treat Lymphoma along with chemotherapy) - cost $2,700 (Php130,715) for a 600mg vial.
2. Other chemotherapy medicines cost $149 (Php7,200).
3. Doctor's Fee & other hospital bills $135 (Php6,500).
Total treatment cost per session is $2,948 (Php143,000). My father will undergo 8 sessions or more depending on the result of all the medical treatments. We will be needing a fund of at least $23,000 (Php1,100,000) for all these chemotherapy sessions.
