Hi everyone I'm Gwen, residing in Brgy. Catoogan, Sta. Fe, Leyte, Philippines. This project is for my grandmother, who is suffering now from liver cirrhosis, which unfortunately advanced to the cancer stage.

About my Lola

Gerenia Concrenio Jordan or known as "Nanay Gering" is a farmer, and a widow living with my uncle "Tata Marsing" who is a PDW. My lola is 74 years old, and her source for a daily basis is working in the ricefields. She knows how to weave "banig" which is made of "buri leaves" and "pawod" coming from nipa (sasa) leaves, bamboo (kawayan) and rattan (uway) string which is her sideline when she is free.

Her illness

Last October, she was rushed in Leyte Provincial Hospital because of severe muscle cramps and high fever, then later got admitted. After spending few weeks in the hospital she was diagnosed with liver cirrhosis and cellulitis. The doctor advised my mother to let my Lola have a laboratory test, a CT-scan to be able to identify the stage of the disease. But, before getting the lab test, my Lola eventually got released because there is no specialist in the hospital, and we can't anymore afford the fees. We also struggled finding money for a couple of days before she got CT-scanned. 

The news we really don't want to hear

December 23, 2020 the result came out and we struggled reading it since we don't have enough knowledge about what is written there. And yesterday, my mom went to a doctor to get a findings about the result, and it was stated that it progressed into liver cancer.

As you can see here, her tummy is already inflamed and she can't stand or walk, or even sit.

Currently, we are suffering financially in supporting the medical fees and medication of my Lola. We urgently need her to get checked by a specialist and get admitted in a private hospital nearby in our area that specializes her illness. We are afraid that she'll need a transplant or a surgery, and we don't have an enough money for it, so I am hoping to get some help through here.

 We will wholeheartedly accept any amounts, any peso, or even cents because it will be a great help for her. Rest assured that the funds and donations that will be gathered here will all go to her medical fees, medicines and essentials. 

I would be happy if you could use the [Help by sharing] button to share about my project! Thank you very much and have a happy holidays!
