My Father's CancerBattle
Organized by: Rebecah Lucenta
I'm not one to write a good story nor am I one to write journal or stuff like that. I really am not sure if anyone will be able to help me with this but what more can I lose right? I'm pretty sure my parents' won't like it had they known that I'm sharing our story here. We were pretty much the normal family up until recently when we found out that my dad has cancer. My mom had been away from us working in Israel for more than 13 years already, you would have thought that during those years that she was working real hard we would have already save a lot, but unfortunately we haven't. We're from the Philippines by the way, my mom went home last April when I got married, we thought she could still go back to Israel a month or two after but unfortunately things didn't work out alright. We already have tons of debts that time and added to that was the expensive treatments my dad has to go through. I couldn't even imagine how we needy we are right now. Life was great before, we could buy all the things that we like, eat all the food that we want and help those people that are in need as well. My parents really love to help people especially my dad but now that we're the one who needs help, certainly and thankfully a lot of people has extend their help to us but people get tired as well right? My mom is now jobless, my sister stopped going to college and I'm doing my very best to help them as well but unfortunately I couldn't help that much since I don't have my working permit yet, I could only do babysitting and house cleaning . It breaks my heart to hear my mom crying when I'm talking to her and it breaks my heart even more that I can't do anything to help them. I'm not forcing anyone to help us but if there's someone out there with a big heart for a family that is in need of help! From the bottom of our hearts, we thank you! This is just a daughter trying to look for ways to help her Father!
