No. 77, Jan Richard Orig, 4, Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia, Philippine Children Medical Center (PCMC)
Little Richard is one of the 5 siblings. Richard was diagnosed with Leukemia that requires routine clinical procedures and maintenance medicine. His other sibling was diagnosed with bipolar. The father who has a disability is the only one working for the family and could do a limited job since he had an accident in 2007 during his work abroad. The mother is the one taking care of all the children. As much as the father wants to work more but his physical condition is disrupting him. The earnings could provide for the basic needs of the family but not enough for the nourishment of all the children, especially his sick child.
The Chummy Chum team delivered the help that little Richard needs. He received cash assistance for his maintenance medicine, formula milk, toys and coloring book that he got excited with as soon as he saw it, as well as grocery items to share with the family.
