The tale of Jennifer Lagrama is that of a young woman from Negros, Oriental Philippines who suffered from an illness that caused a tumor to grow on her neck and spread to her right arm. The tumor was wet and had swollen roots, making it difficult for Jennifer to move and forcing her to rely solely on her left hand. Unfortunately, due to her condition, Jennifer was unable to complete her schooling and only managed to reach grade four.
Moving has been a challenging task for Jennifer, but on top of that, she has also faced ridicule from others. As per her parents, when Jennifer was young, they noticed a rash on her neck which eventually turned into lumps. Upon consulting the hospital, they were informed that it was a tumor that needed to be surgically removed. Unfortunately, they didn’t have enough money to proceed with the operation. They were forced to wait until the lump grew and completely engulfed her right neck down to her arm before they could afford the surgery.
The girl has developed a fondness for social media as a hobby. Jennifer is limited to taking only close-up or side views due to a lump on her neck, which she often conceals with her long hair. Through social media, she met someone special who accepted her condition out of love for her. However, during a program testing, it was discovered that Jennifer’s neck pain was not severe, while the pain in her arm was possibly linked to a genetic disorder called neurofibromatosis. To undergo further testing and surgery, Jennifer’s family needs several million units of currency, which is why she is appealing to those with kind hearts to help fund her recovery.
