Please Help Save Mona's Life from Cancer
Mona Hayek Freiha, a 67 years old woman, my grandmother, was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer while having an Endoscopy (a procedure used to look inside the body)at LAU Medical Center Rizk. The patient is required to receive 6 cycles of chemotherapy as a first step. The ministry of Health in Lebanon as you all know isn’t financing cancer treatments and medications anymore so the family will be taking account of the treatment which is severely hard due to the current situation. Her husband is ill, bound into a oxygen machine in bed all the time which leaves the family with very limited resources, unable to cover the cost of the treatment. The goal is to reach 40,000 $ to be able to pay for the 6 cycles of chemotherapy, the previous operation done, and the upcoming cancer operation and chemotherapy treatment. Knowing that any delay in continuing the treatment will put her life at risk, that’s why we are referring to Crowdfunding as our last hope for saving her life. We count on your solidarity as every contribution from you can make a difference.

Moreover, You can find attached receipts, dr. prescriptions, IRM and CT scan results along with other proofs.
