Hi there! We are humbly knocking on your kind hearts for support for my mom’s chemo and radiation therapy for her cervical cancer (stage 3b).
She will be undergoing 6 sessions of chemo and 28 daily sessions of radiation therapy. Insurance will pay partially for most fees, but she only has around 30k left in her insurance. Every dollar or peso would mean so much as only I and my little sister are working for now. If you are in no position to help financially, we understand and kindly request to please do include her in your prayers. We believe God is bigger than any illness. Thank you so much and may God bless and keep you!
Breakdown and Particulars:
Chemo: PHP 84,000 (14K x 6 sessions)
Radiation Therapy: PHP 260,000 (daily radiation therapy + Brachy)
Doctor’s PF per session: PHP 140,000 (4 doctors)
Medicines and Biopsy: PHP 76,000
Other follow up/monitoring tests: PHP 60,000
Other possible fees (local and foreign bank transfer fees, etc. 3-6%)
Simplygiving fees: 5%
Total around: PHP 675,000
(UPDATES: we received direct donations already and I will be updating the amount here everytime.
Less Insurance and donations:
HMO : 5,000 (update: 19 June: apparently, HMO could only cover 5K max for radiation :(
Dei : 10,000
Tony : 10,000
Total : 650,000 (as of 19 June)
Thank you for your prayers!
These are the cash out necessary after Philhealth and her HMO. Originally, it was higher, but we managed to negotiate her Doctor’s PF from 10K to 5K. And her HMO was able to cover some fees already, hence, it’s almost used up. Transportation costs are also not included.
Kindly also note that if you choose donation to go to beneficiary, SimplyGiving adds and rounds off the credit/debit card fee of 9% to your donation so that for example, if you donate Php 200, you will be paying Php218 and website will take note of Php200. Then, we will receive around Php 190 (200 minus 5% simplygiving fees + less bank fees 3-6%). You may uncheck this box, too.
If you also wish to send your donations directly to avoid the fees, kindly contact us at +63 9998813062.
Once again, thank you for your kind support. God bless!
