Ernelyn is a mother of nine children in the community of our Samar sponsor site. She and her husband, a fisherman, have raised their children with the support of two of their daughters’ Chalice sponsors.
In fall of 2020, Ernelyn underwent surgery to remove lumps from her breast. Her doctors provided her with medication and conducted routine follow-ups to monitor her condition. Fellow members of her Chalice family circle have been making visits to her ever since her surgery, to check in on her health and recovery.
On one such check-in, her fellow mothers noticed that Ernelyn’s arm was swollen, right next to the site of her operation. They raised their concerns, and Ernelyn underwent tests and scans to determine the cause of the inflammation.The cost of the scans and treatment is $169.67 CAD. This unexpected expense is far too much for Ernelyn and her husband’s minimal income.
