When I was diagnosed & hospitalized in 2005, Betti one of the (many many many) friends who gave their support and shared their love with me.
2005. tacK, Adie & Betti
Betti belonged to the batch ahead of me, but because of her condition, she often missed her classes and attended school irregularly. She was our classmate in some subjects. We became friends and she became a part of our group. She added color to our group with her funny antics and good sense of humor, creative sense of humor that is. It really did not seem like she just came from having being ill and from having an organ transplant. I have admired her since then. Creative. Witty. Funny. Kind. Giving. And has a stong FAITH in God.
I can say that I knew how Betti felt when she learned that they need a large sum of money for her transplant.
Hello Kidney and friends by Maria Kathrina Lopez Yarza June 11, 2012 A cheerful heart is a good medicine. — Proverbs 17:22 I was pondering on these words when one of my college friends, Kat Soriano, told me about the current health condition of our friend Catherine “Betti” Sanchez, one of the funniest and strongest persons that I know whose cheerfulness has always been contagious.
Last Sunday I called Lola for updates and referral from kindhearted friends. I believed and I can feel that Baby Emmanuel is a FIGHTER!
A four month old baby fighting for his life, it was really so heartbreaking seeing him catch his breath thru the tubes connected to him, I know lumalaban sya.
Sabi ni Lola: Margie (hehe un tawag nya sa akin) maraming salamat, at kay kitkat (hehe yun tawag nya kay kcat) pati na rin kay nini Jho at dun sa kaibigan nya.
Lola Angelica: "May nagtext sa akin, nabasa daw nya sa Mla. Bulletin si totoy (Baby Emmanuel), tutuo ba daw yun? sabi ko kahit tawagan nyo po yung mga doctor sa PICU. Sabi nya tutulong daw sya, pero di na nagtext uli. Kailangang kailangan ma CT scan na si totoy, dahil patuloy ang lagnat nya at para makita yung estado ng tumor sa baga nya pagkatapos ng unang chemo nya. Naglakas loob akong tinext uli ung taong nag text sa akin. Sabi ko parang awa nyo na po, kailangang kailangan na ma CT Scan si totoy. Sumagot at hiningi ang number ng mga doctor. Maya maya nag text uli, malayo ako, nasa Bicol ako, kunin mo na sa banko ang pang CT scan ng apo mo, mula ngayon lagi ko syang kasama sa pagdarasal ko, sana lumiit na yung tumor na makita sa CT Scan. Laking tuwa ko at pasasalamat sa taong ito na ayaw magpakilala. Nagulat ang mga doktor nang lumabas ang resulta ng CT scan. Lumiit ang tumor na nasa baga nya na halos matakpan na ito sa mga dating CT Scan nya."
AMAZING! Amazing what prayers can do. And God sends His instruments for the answered prayers.
