Please help Chris, a solo parent with an advanced lung cancer.

Hawke's Bay

Christopher Joven is diagnosed with an advanced lung cancer. He is a non-smoker and living with a healthy lifestyle. The cause of his stage 4 lung cancer which affects his bones and breathing is still unknown. He is experiencing weight loss and back pains that is affecting his ability to work. He will start his chemotherapy next week, hoping to reduce the symptoms and prolong his life.

Chris is a solo parent and a bread-winner for his family in the Philippines. It has been difficult for him and his family to accept this challenge, but Chris remains positive to get better and live for his three children.

In order to help Chris, we have set up a Give a Little page and we are hoping that the generosity of our community will help him in his time of need.

Any amount we donate will be truly appreciated by his family.

Thank you very much po. Maraming salamat po.
