Last week, I received news no cancer survivor would ever want to hear. My cancer has relapsed. I have Lymphoma again. I knew having a relapse would haunt me for the rest of my life, but I didn’t imagine it would be this fast. Just a year and 3 months of being in complete remission, I was starting to rebuild my life, my career, my hair – just trying to be normal again. Even my doctor told me I was recovering so quickly that I didn’t look like I had cancer.
A month ago, I started having chest pains which prompted my doctor to order a PET scan for me. As usual, I was having scanxiety but I was thinking it’s not something serious. I may never understand why this had to happen to me again but I still feel lucky because none of my loved ones have it. I beat cancer once, I’m pretty sure I can beat it again, right?
As for my treatment, a stem cell transplant is the best solution for a cancer relapse patient and I will be starting tomorrow. To be honest, I am scared. Aside from the cost, I’m scared of other risks that might happen to me. I’m scared I might not recover from this or the transplant might not work. I’m scared of putting my life on hold again. But I will fight. Again. I will never stop fighting because my friends and family are fighting with me. From my experience, prayers can really move mountains that’s why I am asking everyone to say a prayer with me. Let’s kick cancer out of my system again!!
To daddy, mommy, kuya boom&ate kat, and timmy – Thank you for the love and patience. We will get through this again! To everyone sending me their well-wishes, I truly appreciate them as they give me more strength to fight again.
Sabi nga ni mareng Britney Spears, I am “Stronger than yesterday!” and once I’m done with this, I’ll be saying “Oops… I did it again!”
Over a year ago in 2016, Kristine fought a hard battle against stage 4 lymphoma cancer and — incredibly — with the grace of God and the support of her family and friends, including you, she was able to win.
But now, her cancer is back and has spread to other parts of her body. The risks are higher as well. A stem cell transplant is her greatest chance of beating her lymphoma but would cost millions. Treatment is urgently needed to prevent metastasis. We need to have Kristine admitted to the hospital by Tuesday, April 10.
We have but an extremely limited time to raise 2.5 million if we want Kristine to be able to have a chance at all. We hope to be able to count on your support once more.

Every centavo will count. And prayers would go a long way.
Thank you, family and friends
