On August 11, 2022 our father started having seizure episodes so we rushed him to the ER in one of the hospitals in the Philippines. On August 12 his symptoms developed and so they had to move him to the ICU. They found that one of his aortic valves have been damaged by an infection, which also caused fluid build up in both his lungs (Pneumonia). He is now on oxygen support and unable to speak due to the lack of oxygen travelling to his brain. While the doctors were able to find the source of the problem they mentioned that once the infection is cleared the only way to save him is through bypass surgery and an aortic valve replacement. The total cost of the surgery alone is 1.5 million PH pesos exluding his current running bill at the hospital of 700,000 PH Pesos and recovery fees.

We would need to transfer him to the Philippine Heart Center but the hospital has asked we pay off the balance before transferring him. We tried requesting a promissory note instead so the bills stop accummulating but they are demanding we provide a collateral which we do not have.

Our father has always been a good citizen. He is now 72 years old and up to this day still sees to it that he helps people when he can. During his younger years he was an OFW in Hong Kong for over 22 years and worked as an insurance broker but his true passion was helping other people. So he became a counsellor and advisor for fellow OFW’s especially domestic helpers fighting domestic abuse from their employers. He never asked for a single cent in return. He was the breadwinner of his entire family and had 6 siblings. Because of his eagerness to help he was able to send 2 of his younger siblings to school. Just like any man or any father, he is a good man, a great man, a God fearing man. But he is also our father, the only man that we’ve ever looked up to.

We are knocking on your doors and praying for your kind assistance and prayers. Any amount will go a long way and will help pay his bills and fund his surgery.

Thank you for taking the time to read this and for your kind generosity and help.


God Bless
