Sending love to little Cee.

“Sobra po akong nagpapasalamat sa tulong na aming natanggap, walang hanggang pasasalamat lamang ang aking masasabi. Bahala na po ang Panginoon ang magbalik sa kabutihan ng Chummy Chum.” – Mommy K.

CMAP 180: Little Cee (not her real name)4, Bilateral Retinoblastoma, Philippine Children’s Medical Center

Little Cee was diagnosed with a genetic eye condition called Bilateral Retinoblastoma. Retinoblastoma is a cancer that starts in the retina, the very back part of the eye. It is the most common type of eye cancer in children, and it can spread to other areas.

Just like what happened to little Cee, cancer caused blindness in her both eyes. She’s wearing artificial eyes and was due to be replaced soon. Her medical condition would require her to go through various laboratory tests. One of the most urgent was MRI, which was not available in PCMC where little Cee was being treated.

The father was earning Php 7,500 a month as a dental aide, while the mother took care of their 3 children. Little C is the 2nd among siblings. The youngest, who is 2, is being monitored as she has the same symptoms and signs as hers.

Chummy Chum shared Php 5,000 for medicines and Php 10,000 cash assistance and groceries.
