BoyfromOr­moc needs help for chemo treat­ment

Cebu Daily News - - COMMUNITY -

A FIVE-YEAR old boy from Ma­cabug, Or­moc City, Leyte is in need of fi­nan­cial as­sis­tance for his chemo­ther­apy treat­ment.

Gabriel Al­mond was re­cently di­ag­nosed with acute l ym­phoblas­tic leukemia, a can­cer of the blood and bone mar­row which has a high chance of cure when proper treat­ment is ad­min­is­tered.

Gabriel has to un­dergo three years or more of chemo­ther­apy ses­sions on a reg­u­lar ba­sis with daily oral med­i­ca­tions and fre­quent lab­o­ra­tory workups. Gabriel has to stay in Cebu for sev­eral months for the early stages of his chemo­ther­apy.

Con­sid­er­ing the du­ra­tion and cost of the en­tire treat­ment, Gabriel’s mother seeks help from kind­hearted in­di­vid­u­als. His mother is a sin­gle mom of three chil­dren and cur­rently un- em­ployed, while his fa­ther is an Amer­i­can cit­i­zen work­ing as a com­pany driver, earn­ing a mea­ger in­come.

The fam­ily’s re­sources are not enough to fund Gabriel’s med­i­ca­tion. Their small saris­ari store was also closed for Gabriel’s treat­ment.

Those who wish to do­nate ma­te­rial and/or fi­nan­cial as­sis­tance may co­or­di­nate with Kapwa Ko, Ma­hal Ko Foun­da­tion at the Cebu City Health build­ing with con­tact num­bers 2324706, 4129020and(0917)6257090 or de­posit do­na­tions di­rectly to Union­bank at ac­count no. 00-112-000066-2.
