Not long after the birth of her third child, Laura experienced painful symptoms and irregular bleeding. At first, she thought her symptoms were birth-related, but when they persisted, she went to the doctor and was eventually diagnosed with cervical cancer.
Due to the aggressive nature of Laura's cancer, a loan was taken out to start treatment immediately. Her husband works low-wage, temporary jobs and can barely meet their living expenses. They have no savings. He is the only wage earner because Laura must look after their children. Laura and her husband are both orphans, so they have no family to help them during this very difficult time.
The cost of the remainder of Laura's treatment plus the amount borrowed is $2,221.60. The sponsor site has asked Chalice to help this family so Laura can finish her treatment and focus on her recovery and her children, without the worry of how she will pay for her hospital bills.
