CMAP No. 191: VJ, 11, Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia, General Emilio Aguinaldo Memorial Hospital
VJ was diagnosed with blood cancer when he was 8 years old. The family was devastated not only because this happened amidst scarcity, but also because they could not imagine how could they provide for the medical needs of their sick child. The family has been deprived of a good meal ever since. The father is a construction worker with a meager salary, and barely covered the basic needs of the family. Most part of the small income is used to pay the loan they had from the previous week, and this goes on and on. VJ needs maintenance medicine, regular medical and clinical check-up, and a special diet for his nutritional needs.
VJ was granted Php 10,000 cash assistance for his medical and nutritional needs.
