This is my niece Gwyneth. She is the perfect combination of a Princess and a Warrior!
Arhyen Gwyneth Cabrera Gumapac is the only daughter of my sister Caren and brother-in-law Argee who lives in Batangas Philippines.
I am trying to raise funds for my niece Arhyen Gwyneth Gumapac who was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia with aberrant myloid antigen on 09 February 2016 two days before she celebrated her 3rd birthday. It was very shocking news to us as Gwyneth never had any illness from birth apart from occasional colds. She then started to have chemotherapy, which greatly affected her appetite and she lost weight, eventually losing her hair which she loved the most. The process was not easy to understand for a 3 year old kid who loved to play outdoors and make friends with kids her age, as she was restricted to solitary play and mostly indoor fun and games because of the risk of getting infected. She had to wear a face mask all the time and be in reverse isolation. It deeply affected her emotional and psychological development as she became extremely irritable with depression and she cried most of the time. It was extremely heartbreaking to see the change in my niece's behaviour and the pain that she was going through every time she had her blood tests and intravenous medications. She did show great improvement with her treatment however, before she turned 4 last February, Gwyneth's leukaemia relapsed and she had to restart the treatment all over again but with more potent medications. Despite all the circumstances, Gwyneth never lost her hope that she would one day be free of cancer and would live heathily. Until early this August when her Bone Marrow test result showed that her leukaemia had relapsed for the second time. The doctors recommended to have a Bone Marrow Transplant as there was no assurance that the next treatment protocol would be successful. To have the procedure carried out, we would be needing at least £67,000 ( PhP 4 Million). Gwyneth would still have to carry on having chemotherapy until she gets to a remission period before the transplant procedure.
Gwyneth is very dear to us and we will certainly do everything for her to replenish all the time that cancer had taken away from her. Therefore I am writing this request to raise fund for the treatment of my niece Gwyneth. Any amount of help is highly appreciated and I thank you all in advance. May God bless you all for your kindness and generosity.

Thank you all for the generous donations. As of today, Gwyneth has not had chemotherapy for the last two weeks as she was down with infection and mostly needing blood transfusion. She is being treated with antibiotics and hopefully her blood components will stabilized so we can resume with her chemotherapy. Thank you all for your support and prayers. It means so much. Xxx
