Maricris, A Cancer Patient


Please forgive me for interupting your regular reading of Mr. Pope's blog because of my desire to convey my present ordeal in life.

My name is Maricris Garcia Ugay, 36 years old, a happily married housewife and blessed with a son. And I am presently residing at No. 14 Cristobal St. Paco, Manila.

Last year, July 15th, 2008, I was diagnosed with a known case of invasive ductal carcinoma, right, stage IIA(T2N0Mx), hence surgery was done on my right breast.

After surgery, I underwent four cycles of adjuvant chemotherapy . Months have past, I experienced difficulty in breathing, check-up and laboratory x-ray test were conducted. It discovered that I have a Massive Pulmonary Metastasis (stage IV) and was adviced by the doctors to undergo a series of chemotherapy.

With these regards, I’m making an appeal to each and everyone of you, who has a big and generous heart, for a financial assistance that you could extend in my behalf. The chemotherapy sessions would entail a big amount of money that me and my family could not hardly afford to sustain. This could extend my chances for survival.

I wish I could live long enough to feel the cold breeze of the coming Yultide season, smell the freshly baked "bibingka" accross our street, see the bright colored lanterns on our windows, hear the my son's voice singing Christmas Carols to my ears and my husband Jonathan whisphering Merry Chirstmas.

I wish I could live long enough to thank you personally or through Mr. Pope, and wish you a Happy New Year.

Your help would mean a lot to me and to my family, and please include me in your prayers.

For more information, you may please contact my husband:

God bless you.


Siya si Maricris, isang mabuting kaibigan ng aking pamilya na kumakatok sa aking puso at aking inihahatid sa inyo ang kanyang pagususmamo na sana ay sa inyong tulong ay madugtungan ang kanyang buhay. Ating ipanalangin nawa'y malagpasan nya ang pagsubok na ito sa kanyang buhay sa tulong ng ating mapagmahal na Ama.

In behalf of Maricris family and my family as well, our depeest gratitude to our fellow bloggers and KABLOGS family who have re-posted Maricris' pleadings as follows:

To the KABLOGS members, OFW Bloggers and KABLOGS supporters, thank you for your support, the outpouring of love and prayers from people accross the globe for her immediate recovery which is enough to say that with FAITH there is HOPE beyond CANCER.



  1. This is something that I am very familiar about. 16 years old, and 16 years ago, my Mom suffered the same, and it breaks my heart to remember the scenes of the past.

    God bless you Maricris, and with the technology and advancement of medicine after 16 years, I am grateful you will have high hope that things will work out according to the righteous desires of our heart.

  2. Kasama sya sa bawat dasal ko pre, at sanay maging maayos ang lahat para sa kanya at sa mga mahal nya sa buhay...

  3. Nakiisa po ako sa panalangin para kay Maricris...

  4. Ako rin po nakikiisa sa panalangin para kay Maricris...

  5. @ Mr. Thoughtskoto
    I am really sorry to hear your story about your mother's passing... it really breaks my heart to hear women suffers such pain especially when they are inflicted with cancer.

    Despite of the modern science discoveries and advance medical technology, the costs of medicines and professional fees is still not affordable to the common man.

    And at times like this, the most important shield in life is faith and the best medicine is prayer in battling with this disease.

  6. @ Lord CM
    Maraming salamat sa panalangin, ito ang pinakamatibay na sandata laban sa nasabing sakit.

    @ MarcoPaolo
    Salamat po sa pakikiisa, God bless you.

    @ Rej
    Thank you my friend for your prayer.

    @ Desert Aquaforce

    Thank you for your support. God bless you.

    personally, i fel ashemed of myself after i read ur post coz in quiet sumtime i kip on whining in all the burden im facing... it made me realize im still blessed & fortunate. i have plenty of reason to be hapi & thank for.

  13. Im with you Maricris.
    I know how hard it is for you to hold believe that Someone's up there, but may this song always inspire you when you feel so down
    "When the oceans rise and thunders roar, I will soar with You above the storm. Father You are King over the flood, I will be still and know You are God."

    Still ang title ng song, inspired from Psalm 46:10

  14. My prayers go to Maricris and her family. And to you too George so that God may continue to use you as His instrument.
