Hi, my name is Angelina. I am 29 years old and I have cancer.
Yes, you read that correctly. What I thought was just a simple case of ‘dili makalibang’ (constipation) turned out to be a life-threatening illness.
Allow me to share my story, not to gain sympathy but to make known why I would love to live longer. I am a mother of 2 boys. I lost their father 9 years ago in a motorcycle accident. I was 9 months pregnant with my youngest. He didnt get to see his dad. I was broken-hearted. I thought that was the worst moment of my life until a few weeks ago. Until I was diagnosed with rectal cancer at 29. Even the doctors have a hard time believing. I could not believe it.
There is hope they said. All I have to do is undergo treatment and get the tumor removed. And whether my body can take high doses of radiation to kill the cancer cells and shrink the tumor.
I have to live for my 2 boys. So that I can show my children how to live life for themselves. If you could support by making a donation and sharing it with your network, I will be forever indebted to you. Any amount are welcome and every contribution will help me in this journey.
