Miche's Chemotherapy and Surgical Operation
Organized by: Rose Mae Lopez
Sixty two years old mother recently diagnosed with third stage colorectal cancer from the Philippines last March 2015. She was advised to undergo chemotherapy before finally proceeding to surgically remove the tumor from her colorectum. She was abandoned by her husband to raise their only child alone. Her child stopped working to take care of her however their savings were already severely drained and there is still not enough money for her chemotherapy and her final surgery. She disposes her fecal matter from her abdomen now and a colostomy bag is attached to it to collect the fecal matter. However, the tumor was not yet removed and is still growing bigger and bigger inside her and she's having blood in her stool. She doesn't have enough money even for a CT Scan diagnosis. She's starting to lose weight and growing pale everyday due to blood lost everyday.
