Jolly Mara needs helpCebu Daily News
MARA Galarion, a three-year-old girl from Ubay, Bohol is in need of medical assistance for her chemotherapy and surgery.
She has Retinoblastoma, a rapidly developing cancer that attacks the cells of the eye retina.
The disease first affected her left eye, before it spread to her right eye that caused her complete blindness.
Even though she can’t see, this jolly little girl still loves to play.
After her chemotherapy sessions, she will have to undergo a surgery to remove both her eyeballs to get rid of cancer cells.
Mara’s family, however, is financially hard-up.
Her father used to work as factory worker, but stopped to take care of Mara. Her mother just recently got a job as a salesgirl in a bakeshop.
Mara is asking kindhearted individuals to help her by donating for her chemo and surgery.
Those who wish to help Mara may coordinate with the Kapwa Ko, Mahal Ko Foundation at the Cebu City Health with contact numbers 2324706, 4129020 and (0917) 6257090 or deposit donations directly to Unionbank at account no. 00-112-000066-2.
Please indicate the name of the patient in the deposit slip.
