Pinay cancer warrior in Dubai barters pre-loved items to boost immune system amid Covid-19

- Advertisment -

A Dubai-based Filipina cancer-stricken has posted several posts on Facebook of her pre-loved items with fresh fruits, vegetables and meat to support her immune system while undergoing chemotherapy. 

Maria France Vizcaya was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2018 and recently, she started to barter a few of her belongings at the Amicable Barter Community in Dubai – ABCD with essentials and other supplements for her to boost her immune system. 

Currently, Vizcaya is undergoing chemotherapy in Dubai. She exchanged a pair of shoes, a washing machine, make-up, and electric oven, among others with supplements and food.

The Filipina warrior told The Global Filipino Magazine that she is currently on unpaid leave and could not go back to her work due to her condition. 

“Naka unpaid leave po ako. hindi po ako nakakapasok dahil high-risk po ang isang tao may cancer at lalo na po naki-chemotherapy ako ngayon,” she added noting that she already had two chemo sessions. 

‘Good things come to those who wait’

On her Facebook post, she revealed that she had several barter posts in the group and was patiently waiting for someone to respond for days and weeks. 

“I tried to barter some more and seemed hopeless. Until some angels were sent. Some helped me to post and find a way to barter. Someone had answered my prayers,” Vizcaya said.

“It saddens me that there are people around this time that I am at one of the lowest points of my life and sees me in the way they want. But, through you, I was reminded that I should never doubt myself. I trust in God as He always sends a message of His presence,” she added.
