Yan Lariba’s fight is not yet over
In an official statement published by the DLSU Office of Sports Department, the 2016 Rio Olympics competitor shared an update about her current condition and launched a personal appeal for help.
The La Salle great was originally discharged last October 23, 2017, and attended regular check-ups with her doctor.
“However, on the first week of January 2018, I started having episodes of headache and vomiting. These symptoms persisted which prompted my current hospital admission,” read Lariba’s statement.
“Workup revealed that my leukemia recurred and has spread to my brain and spinal cord.
“I also started having blurring of vision and weakness on the left side of my body. I am currently undergoing chemotherapy and will need multiple laboratory examinations and blood transfusion,” it added.
DLSU Sports’ statement disclosed that people who are willing to donate for Lariba’s treatments can send their donations to Banco De Oro savings account number 0045-8045-9965. The account name is Ian N Lariba, while the BDO branch is situated at Vito Cruz, Taft. Visitors aren’t allowed to visit her as well.
“I appeal to your kind hearts for any assistance that you can give to help me with my fight against this disease. I also humbly ask for your prayers so I may overcome this challenge. Thank you.”
Lariba prevailed over leukemia once. There no reason why this can’t be another temporary setback for a permanent recovery.
