I am ready for my next cranial surgery but...

I have already recovered from the open-brain surgery as soon as it finished last April 11, 2016. I regained my full-consciousness at once after the medical team have successfully removed my 6 centimeter brain tumor and closed my head. I woke up at once. I was already 100% conscious. I can still remember every detail of everything that transpired from the time I opened my eyes. I felt like nothing happened. No discomfort and pain. From then on I started to recover, not little by little but I had sudden improvements. Amazing things were happening. For example, just the day before, I can’t get up from the bed on my own, and then the next day I CAN! And that didn’t happen just once bur many times. God surprised me many many times and it’s really amazing!


 Here’s the list of my improvements. I’m not sure if everything is on this list, but one thing’s for sure: I had an amazing recovery!

1. My vision is brighter. It’s too bright though but I believe that my vision will still improve.

2. My vision is clearer. It’s not blurry anymore and I can do without eyeglasses.

3. I can see in the dark, I can see what’s happening inside a dark car at night, everything that’s going on in the dark parking lot & I can already see silhouette people or things in a dark room; it’s not all pitch black for me anymore.

4. My eyes don't hurt anymore when it's too bright. I can look in the sun without hurting my eyes. Of course it’s ‘nakakasilaw’ but my eyes don’t sting anymore.

5. I can eat on my own already. No one needs to feed me. I can properly shoot the spoon in my mouth again.

6. My left foot isn't swelling anymore (after 10 years).

7. My right eye is not too bulge out anymore. It went inside a little bit and is already parallel to the left.

8. My right eye can see. It’s still blurry because of the scar on my cornea but it it can see what my left eye can see.

9. My knees and legs are not weak anymore. I can stand by myself again.

10. I can sit on the bed. I can sit without backrest.

11. ’Kaya ko na uli ang sarili ko’

12. I can get up from lying down. I can do it without any help.

13. I am able to transfer from the bed too the chair & vice versa using my own strength

14. II don't easily get tired.

15. I can use the pedal & exercise again

16. My brain cells are already working because I can be able to write properly and my writing-style is already the same as before.

17. My arms and legs are not that skinny anymore.

18. I can easily find what I'm looking for as long as it's located somewhere that I can see. Unlike before, I I find it hard to see what's already in front of me.

19. I would always slouch when sitting and when I was weak, I needed someone's help to fix me and make me sit up straight, but not anymore! I can sit back straight again on my own and I can do it easily, without feeling like I am falling.

20. Before, the computer monitor in front of me needs to be open when I'm using the mirror for added light. Now, the light on the ceiling is already enough. I can use the mirror and use it properly even without an added light.

21. I don’t nearly fall off the chair anymore when reaching for things that’s near me.

22. I don't ‘hikbi' and hyperventilate at once when crying.

23. I’m less ‘madungis’ when eating. I can already control my food intake

24. My regular chewing & swallowing are back!

25. Minimized GERD (Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease) ‘Nuff said.

26. No pain still. Period.

I believe that I have already finished my FULL RECOVERY because I can’t think of anything more to recover from. I feel so great! Everyday. Since day one.

I am ready to have the next cranial surgery for the removal of tumor in my optic wall. I am ready, but the Php700,000 isn’t ready yet. We are not yet done raising the funds. God will provide. HE always does. Maybe you are one of God’s instruments in helping us.

4. Share my story to everyone you know

Forwarding this may reach people who wants to help as well. Internet and social media is very powerful these days.

“Through social media, missing persons are found; sick persons are given chances to live a healthy life. I say, that is the modern bayanihan movement.”

I often tell God: “Lord, please continue to do amazing things in my life so that I can keep on bragging how great YOU are.”

33 Years of awesome life! THANK YOU!!!!

People say that Friday the 13th is an unlucky day. I don’t think so. On the night of May 13, 1983, Friday, after my mother went through 12 hours of labor, I came out of her womb via caesarian section.

But I did not make my first cry like normal babies do. I wasn’t even breathing. My umbilical cord was coiled around my neck and caused me to suffocate.

Bad luck? Definitely not, because I was brought back to life and I am alive today! 
(From 18 years, May 2011)

I am like a cat with many lives, but because my name is spelled as KCAT, I have more than just 9. I had zero respiration when I came out of my mom’s womb When I was a baby, my body was poured with boiling hot water. I had numerous surgeries, be it minor or major. I lost consciousness a couple of times. I had very risky brain surgeries. In 2005, everyone (including my doctors & nurses) thought I won’t survive and might end up dead.

I’ve been through s lot but I survived. I AM ALIVE TODAY!

Not once did I ever feel afraid or worried  because I know that God is with me and I was right. God is with me. He is all over me. He controls me. I am His instrument.

10 years ago, during my anxiety attack, I told Him that 22 years of life ii already enough. I got to enjoy it and it’s alright with me if my life has to end already. But God has better plans for me. The best!

"...I have always looked forward to my birthday. Maybe because of the cakes, balloons, gifts, and parties, be they simple or grand. When I became too old for those kiddie stuff, surprisingly, I was still excited for birthdays because I always believe that adding another year is something to celebrate about, until I matured more and understood that life is indeed a wonderful blessing from the One above..."

Thank you for my 33 wonderful years here on earth, Lord!

10th Gift-giving?

It is supposed to be our 10th MAY Birthday Project this year but because of my current condition, I decided that there won’t be a gift-giving this time. I will get better and focus on improving myself, my health so that I can continue with what I am doing and I CAN do more.

Let me share with you my mom’s note that she posted on Facebook about our fundraising. We need to come up with at least 700 thousand pesos in less than 2 months for my nxt open-brain surgery and you can help us by buying my book KCAT CAN: I have a pen that writes.

10th MAY BIRTHDAY PROJECT: For our gift-giver organizer KCAT
by Madge Yarza

What comes into our minds when the month of May comes?
Kcat's May Birthday Gift-giving Project.

It's been 10 years since we started Kcat's May Birthday Gift Giving Project at the Philippine General Hospital Pediatric Wards. And Philippine Orthopedic Center Pediatric and Pediatric Cancer Patient’s Ward.

Putting a smile on every patient's face even for a day was such touching experience that marked in our hearts.

It’s Kcat’s way of bringing back the glory to God. Sharing her blessings. The blessings whom she says her family, relatives, friends and new people whom we’ve met in this journey. Thru them we were able to reach out and touched these people’s lives.

Every year was really a Great SUCCESS! We owe it all to the people who heartily supported us. MARAMING MARAMING SALAMAT PO FROM THE BOTTOM OF OUR HEARTS ♥’

2016 is our 10th Year, and this time, we are not holding the May Birthday Gift-giving  for the meantime as Kcat said.  Instead, we would like to take this time to raise funds for our gift-giver organizer herself, KCAT.  Break time to give way for her treatment, and once everything is well again, MAY BIRTHDAY GIFT GIVING PROJECT will continue as long as God permits. 

Kcat needs to undergo another open brain surgery, according to her neurosurgeon, as much as possible soon, or once Kcat has totally recovered physically. This is to prevent her right eye from bulging out that might cause complications due to exposure. An excision of intra lateral tumor along her orbital wall will be done.

In this regard, let me take this chance to humbly seek your support to make this procedure done by buying a copy of Kcat’s self-published book “KCAT CAN: I HAVE A PEN THAT WRITES“ Your help means a lot and in return you may be able to read and share Kcat’s inspirational stories and writings mostly published in her Manila Bulletin Column, Kcat Can.

You may send me these details at 0927-2459400 or PM me or Kcat:

Anoint my hand Lord to be your hand, use me as your instrument, grant me the power and authority to do your will that everything be for your greater glory, "Lord Jesus, forgive me for all my sins". Lord with Mama Mary, I beg for your mercy and love, I pray as I surrender to you my wish , "Thy will be done". I know that you are with me, you love me, I believe in faith that " nothing is impossible with God" and "You only have to say the word and I shall be healed"and my wish shall be granted. Come Holy Spirit, I need you to touch and heal me. (Close your eyes , focus and think of Jesus crucified at the Cross, place your hand on top of your chest and pray from your heart for your specific needs). I claim in faith, In the mighty name of Jesus, in the mighty name of Jesus, in the mighty name of Jesus through the powerful intercession of Mama Mary, thank you Jesus, I am healed and my wishes have been granted.
