Loved ones of 1-year-old child with leukemia ask netizens for help

- A 1-year-old baby boy is fighting for his life as he suffers from leukemia

- For his treatment, the boy has to undergo chemotherapy, which causes extreme weakness and hair loss

- His loved ones are now asking netizens for their prayers and for their help

It is heartbreaking to see an adult person suffer from leukemia. But it is a million times worse when the person suffering is only a 1-year-old child.

KAMI learned about a toddler’s fight for his life from the Facebook page dedicated to him called “Fight Baby Johnny.”

“John Vic Samson also known as "Baby Johnny" was born on Sept. 8, 2015. Today, at a very young age of 1 year and 7 months, he was diagnosed with Leukemia,” a description of his condition reads.

The family member who manages the page also wrote about the 10-day chemotherapy treatment that the child has to undergo.

Here are excerpts from the post:

“Unang una, nais naming magpasalamat sa mga nagdasal at patuloy na nagdarasal sa laban ng aming Baby Johnny. Lahat kayo ay itinuturi na naming kapamilya. Tatanawin namin itong napakalaking utang na loob.

“May bagong advise ang doctor sa kanila, yun ay ang subukan ang first 10 days chemotherapy session para kay Johnny. Ito ang kinatatakutan namin dahil ito ay walang kasiguruhan. Ngunit sinabi niya na after nito malalaman namin kung mag re-response ang katawan ni Johnny sa chemo. Mahirap. Madugo. Magastos. Kailangan ng maraming dasal…

Na relief lamang kami sa sinabi ng doctor na mas mabilis mag response ang mga bata sa ganitong mga proseso.”

Unfortunately, the effects of chemotherapy include hair loss and body weakness.

“Alam naming magiging masakit para kay baby Johnny ang mga gagawin sa chemotherapy, makakalbo siya, manghihina ang katawan, walang kasiguraduhan ngunit ayaw naming pagsisihan ang lahat, ayaw naming bumitaw tulad ng hindi pagbitaw ng DIYOS sa AMIN.

“Hangga’t may nakikitang konting PAG ASA lumaban pa din tayo! 26% na chance, kahit maliit -CHANCE pa din ito. Alam namin na ang 73% na CHANCE ay manggaling sa AMA at ikakaloob sa aming baby Johnny. Lalaban tayo!

The netizen also asked for help from the online community.

“As of April 22 ang bills nila ay umabot na sa higit kumulang 135,000.00 php. Hindi pa kasama dito ang bayad sa apat na Doctor niya. Ang gagawing Chemotherapy sa loob ng sampung araw ay nagkakahalaga ng 125,505.00 php. Gamot pa lamang po ito, wala pa ang hospital bills at doctor’s fee. Sinama po namin ang mga detalye sa post na ito.

“Nanagawan kami sa lahat na sana ay matulungan ninyo kami sa laban na ito. Kahit anong amount po ay makakatulong sa amin.”
