It pains me to post something like this, and on Mother’s Day yet. But then, what could be a more fitting way to honor one great Filipina mom than to show some love when she needs it most.

Here’s full text of her friends’ appeal on the Go Get Funding site:
We are friends of Virgie Sabena, a hardworking and honest 42-year old single mom of 2 children who has been diagnosed with Stage 3-B breast cancer almost 3 years ago. Despite many efforts of funding her own treatment, as well as seeking assistance from the government and private foundations, she is unable to continue into the much needed next round of her treatment. Gigie has even, through her health problems, tries to work to help raise funds for living expenses through housecleaning work and now also working from home for an online business. But she cannot do it all by herself and seeks your kind assistance and support in the form of a donation of any amount to help reach her goal.
In her own words:
I am writing this letter to appeal for your help again regarding my health condition. I am undergoing treatment for breast cancer stage 3-B, a life threatening disease that is causing me so much physical, mental and emotional pain.
My latest medical check-up revealed that I developed further complications which need to be addressed immediately. My oncologist recommended a new round of treatment for brain metastasis.
Being a solo breadwinner with no stable source of income and given the prohibitive cost of this new treatment protocol I must admit that I am very scared. But then I also need to do everything I can to get well and extend my life as I have a family to support and because I believe with God nothing is impossible.
Thus I am compelled to request for financial assistance from persons like you for any amount you can give along with your prayers which will be deeply appreciated.
May God Bless your kindness and generosity.
Virgie “Gigie” Sabena
