Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
This is Sharon, she is 44 years old, a mother of 5 beautiful children. Her youngest is only 10. She is an amazing woman.
As a woman and a friend, I can't help but be proud of how courageously she battles her disease, and the way she inspires others who are going through the same trials.
Amidst the storms and life adversaries, she remains strong and positive, always trying to put up a big smile to cheer up others despite all her pain and worries.
Her greatest dream is to see her children grow up and be there for them in their future.
Sharon used to work as a nurse, a caring hand to her patients in need. Sadly, she had to stop working when she was diagnosed of cardiomyopathy with only 23% of blood being pumped out from her heart. The normal person's left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) is 50%-75%, and low LVEF indicates heart failure. She requires a permanent pacemaker with implantable cardioverter defibrillator to make her functioning well again. A pacemaker costs a million pesos in the Philippines and it is a big leap of faith for someone to be able to raise such fund in a developing country.
While she was getting herself accustomed to this news, Sharon received another devastating blow in her life... she was diagnosed of stage 2 breast cancer and is needing 6 sessions of chemotherapy and radiotherapy. This costs her PhP30,000 per session.
I know many of you have been lucky enough to have known Sharon, but to those who have not met her yet; she is a very kindhearted person, a loving mother and wife, a sweet and helpful friend and a caring nurse. She is a very independent person and will rarely ask for help from anyone. So, on her behalf, I am knocking at everyone's heart, please help Sharon raise money for her pacemaker and chemotherapy, help her continue her dreams. Any amount you can give will make a huge difference in her life.
