MANILA, Philippines?Mary Patrice Nicole Siaboc has been diagnosed to be suffering from Langerhans cell histiocytosis, a rare disease among children.

Medical records show that only one in every 100,000 children is afflicted with the ailment.

The 4-year-old daughter of Liezel Siaboc of Bangkal, Makati City, is undergoing chemotherapy at Philippine General Hospital.

Doctors say her treatment should last for 54 weeks.

?We don?t know where to get the P14,647 we need to spend per session because my husband Rogelio works as a janitor at a gasoline station in Quezon City,? Siaboc told the Philippine Daily Inquirer in Filipino.

Those who want to help the Siabocs can contact them at 0909-3923661 or deposit their donations in Rogelio Siaboc?s bank account at Allied Bank (account number 0316007965).
