Four young siblings seek help for mother with bone cancer
by Harley F. Palangchao

The four young sons of a mother battling bone cancer are appealing to kindred souls and good Samaritans to help their family raise a huge amount for her post surgery medication, and hospitalization of their mother.

The siblings, aged 18, 10, and seven-year-old twins were devastated when their mother, Wilma Juvy Allibang, was diagnosed two years ago with bone cancer, six years after she was also diagnosed with breast cancer.

The family’s ordeal started when Allibang fell into an open canal at Burnham Park while she and her kids were walking towards the crowd who were then watching the fireworks display during the closing rites of Panagbenga 2016.

Her children, who brought her to the Baguio General Hospital where she was treated with a broken hip. During treatment, her doctors have diagnosed that she has tumor on T2-T3 in her spine.

Doctors recommended her transfer to Notre Dame De Chartres Hospital for further treatment. Despite the high cost of hospitalization, she agreed if only to survive for her four young children and her husband.

Wilma’s husband is reportedly working overseas but could not travel to the Philippines yet after incurring a huge salary loan used for the medication of his wife.

The tumor worsened until doctors informed Wilma that it has developed into bone cancer, one of the most painful forms of cancer.

Wilma is presently undergoing chemotherapy hoping that she will be back on her feet.

Recently, she had to be rushed to the hospital because of extreme pain and underwent operation on her spine.

She has been brought to several hospitals within Baguio and their expenses have already piled up.

Lately, Wilma’s father, Juan, a long-time kagawad of Barangay Holy Ghost and an outstanding senior citizen of Baguio, died while his daughter was at the hospital.

Back at Pines City Doctor’s Hospital, Wilma was at the intensive care unit and is miraculously survived three days after all life support was removed from her body on Oct. 3.

“Her family is faced with a dilemma. Their bills at the hospital has reached more than P1 million. If she expires, her death certificate will not be released until the bills have been settled,” said a close friend of Wilma, who is assisting the family in seeking for financial assistance.

Those who would like to help can reach Wilma’s brother, Warren, at 0918-444-3843 or may deposit to Warren’s BPI account at 8539088913.
