Sister's Medical/Memorial Fund

Writing this is very difficult for me. But when it's for your loved ones, you need to do what you can to help. This is for my sister Diane, she is our eldest sibling amongst us four. Born and raised in the Philippines. A 40 year-old single mother of three. Her oldest daughter is now 17, her second daughter is 5 and her youngest son just turned 3. 

On March of 2015, my sister was diagnosed with stage IIIB Cervical cancer. She was advised to start her treatment as soon as possible. Radiation and Chemotheraphy were initiated. After which, she was advised to finish the treatment with Brachytherapy. Since we live in a small town, not all treatment is available so we had to take her to a different city from another island. She was a fighter and was able to complete her treatment. 

Since then, she was able to live a normal and happy life with her kids, family and friends.Though she wasn't cancer free, she was advised to continue her regular check-up and watch her food intake or diet. 

On March of 2017, she felt some abnormalities in her body. Lymph nodes in her neck, body pain and bones hurt, stomach pain when she eats, fatigue and lack of appetite. Immediately, she was brought to her medical care provider and an ultrasound and X-ray were performed. It turned out that the lymph nodes in her neck is not a good sign related to her cancer. This time, 25 sessions of radiation was required. Unfortunately, due to her health condition, she was only able to do 10 sessions and didn't complete her radiation treatment. 

She was confined in the hospital for a couple of weeks now. The doctor said that the cancer has spread to her liver and bones. Her internal organs are also affected badly.

But despite of her condition, my sister is a fighter and tried so hard to combat her illness to be able to take care of her kids and witness them grow. She missed a lot of school activites due to her condition and I know that she would love to get up and makeup for the days that she missed with her kids.

Currently, all we have is faith, hope and love for my sister Diane. Prayers from everyone, warm support and inspiring messages kept us going.  And through this channel, I am hoping to raise some funds to be able to support the hospital bills and be able to provide the medical needs for my sister's treatment.

I am asking for your support with anything that you can. Extending her life may it be a day, two or hopefully years will definitely be the best gift that we'll receive.

On May 22, 2017 Diane left calmly and joined our lord Jesus Christ in peace. Thank you for your prayers and condolences. 

From the bottom of my heart, Thank You!
