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:
