Thank you for taking the time to read this! The man in the pictures is one of the best men I've ever known and he is also my grandfather, Juanito Galay. My Grandpa has spent his life helping others. He retired from the Philippine Constabulary Police a few years ago after a full and distinguished career.
Grandpa has been diagnosed with Aplastic Anemia, It's a serious condition that is treatable but he lives in a small Philippine village where only basic medical care is available. If he is able to go to a larger city, he will be able to see a hematologist and get the treatment he needs. Unfortunately, travel is difficult and expensive because of COVID-19 and the recent typhoons in the Philippines.
Today he needs 10 pints of blood because his platelet count continues to drop. The normal platelet count is 140,000 to 150,000, Grandpa's is 9,000 today. If he can get to a hematologist, he will be able to get a thorough blood test and the correct medication to help him.
Any amount you can spare would be helpful and would help to save a good man's life. Please help us save my Grandpa's life.
