Riza's Cancer Treatment

38761510_155617123369618_r.jpegRizza Rowena Parasdas lives in Davao City, Philippines. She is 46 years old and has already won a previous battle against stage 2b cervical cancer in 2001. She went through chemotherapy and total hysterectomy, luckily she was already blessed with a 3-year old daughter at the time named Charizza. Despite leading a healthy and active life, Rizza is recently diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer. Her family has been strong despite facing the same monster again after 18 years.  She used to work as a medical receptionist until she was diagnosed with lung cancer. Her husband, Ronald, is currently unemployed since the bankruptcy of the company he previously worked in.  Charizza, who now works as a radiology technician in the Philippines,  is left financially supporting her medication and treatment.

Rizza is one of the nicest woman to ever walk the Earth. She is a loving mother and a supportive wife.  She's an amazing friend and auntie. She's not my blood relative but she might as well be because I spent my childhood days with her and her family.  She makes the best cakes and shared that with the kids in the neighbourhood. She was always there for my family and now I am returning the favour. She needs funds for her chemotherapy which costs a lot of money in the Philippines. The Philippines is a developing country that has very poor health care services. Riza has been the silent pillar in the Puan neigbourhood, she is always willing to offer assistance to mothers with young children and bake her memorable pastries for the entire neigbourhood. She needs treatment right away and needs 40,000 Php each round of chemo every 21 days.  She has 5 more rounds to get through. Please help us and donate to our cause to save her life.
