Rafael Apuli Silva ChemotherapyFund

Hi, I am John Anthony Apuli Silva. I have a 15-year-old brother named Rafael Apuli Silva. We recently observed that he has lumps under his chin and his neck. We decided to have one of his lumps under his chin undergo biopsy.

The biopsy's result went out and it stated that he has Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma. Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma (NHL) is a cancer that starts in white blood cells called lymphocytes, which are part of the body’s immune system. He had undergone CT Scan for the staging purposes of NHL. He was diagnosed with Stage 3 Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma this December 2017. My brother needs to do chemotherapy 3x per week for 6 months and every 2 weeks after for an estimate of 2 years treatment. He also needs the oral medications and laboratory testings while doing the treatment. It is 9,000 pesos (philippine money) per chemo session ($185 per session). He has just started his first chemotherapy last December 30, 2017.

My little brother is a jolly and an active person, he plays soccer. He is very kind and have a generous helping hand especially when he knows he can do something. We want to bring back how he was, and we are humbly knocking into your hearts and deeply asking for your financial help on chemotherapy session and other labs needed to help fight this cancer. Our family is financially incapable of paying for his hospital bills and chemotherapy session as well as the procedures that he will be needing.  We are asking also for your prayers. Thank you so much. God Bless you and your family.
