    Cancer victim from Philippines need HELP

    All,

    I am surfing the internet trying to get persons or organizations that will help me and my sister. And saw this site on one of the articles about cancer victims. I know that you are feeling the same as what I am feeling right now - DOING ALL THINGS TO SAVE family's life.

    My sister was diagnosed as having an Invasive Ductal Carcinoma Breast Cancer - Grade 3 and stage 2. Her breast have been removed and is required to undergo a series of chemotheraphy. Her laboratory states that she is estrogen negative, proestrogen negative and her-2-neu positive 1+, that requires her to have more additional treatment. She is single and have no work, my dad is also jobless and also under treatment. I do have a work but having 2 children and my income is just enough for us. I am knocking in anyone's kind heart to help us financially or do you know organizations that will provide medicines such as taxotere, bxorubin,cyclphanamide.. I know that you guys know the feeling of "helplessness" .. I am begging you to please consider helping us. I am not into scam and can scan and provide documents like the laboratory tests if you want some proof.

    We are not rich and I cannot buy the fact that money will be the reason for mys ister not to have a longer life.. PLEASE DO HELP!!

    May GOD bless us ALL!!


    Best regards,
    Lyn

    Well I'm not 100% sure they can help but I found some international organizations that may help you
    They're mainly research groups but sometimes the research groups will conduct the chemo and prescriptions at a heavily discounted price or at no charge. If I were you I'd see about creating a donation website for your sister and advertising. Possibly making a milliondollarhomepage type of script. There's a lot of people who'd be willing to help you in your situation.

    Once you have an idea which drugs are need, it can also be worth contacting the drug manufacturers who will sometimes assist in funding treatment with their products.
