Mommy Rizza is what we call her. She is a friend, a confidant, a sister, a wife and a mother. She is battling chronic myelogenous leukemia and is on her third cycle of chemotherapy. Life has changed tremendously for her and her husband in the Philippines. She told me from the above chat picture that I caught her at a good time when the medication side effects are low. She is in need of help financially. Their situation has been difficult and challenging as she had been out of work for over a year now and struggling to make ends meet. Her husband is her sole caretaker. She needs about PhP 120,000 (close to $2,500) for her next chemotherapy. Any dollar amount that is donated and collected for this cause will greatly help to cover for her medical expenses. I sincerely thank you for your kindness and generosity. And please, do not hesitate to share this.
