Hi, my name is Ireneo A. Olinares, from Binangonan, Rizal, Philippines, a high school teacher (now out of work) and a single father. I have undergone colostomy last March 14. 2016, due to colorectal cancer. They told me that i will now be in colostomy bag for the rest of my life, since my rectum was already closed (i don't know the term). i received no medical benefits from my agency (DepEd). since there is no provision for it. I am now financially broke and can not even afford my medications and the colostomy bags, being really expensive. i have no other source of income and i have no or do not own any properties to sell.
