Hi my name is Lovely. A daughter to a 59 year old ill man. I am writing to appeal for help in raising funds for my father ORLANDO BALUTAO who was diagnosed with cancer. We have yet to confirm if it's lung cancer or neuro-endocrine cancer through a test called immuno stain chemistry. That test alone costs Php 46,400.
The doctors have recommended taking the immuno stain to determine the type of cancer. From there, we'll be able to proceed with treatment such as radiation, chemo therapy and immuno therapy. Or go for palliative care which is not easy either because we'll have to prepare for mechanical ventilator, oxygen, nebulizer, suction machine, thermoscan and cardiac monitor.
Right now, my Papa is in the ICU of Dr Fe Del Mundo Medical Center located in 11 Banawe, Quezon City (HMO preferred hospital.) He's been there since June 19. ICU costs Php 3,000 daily. He is feeding through a tube (NGT) and breathing through a respirator. Though the cancer is considered at stage 4 due to fluid build up in his lungs called pleural effusion, my Papa is still very responsive; communicating through sign language, eye contact and writing. Which is why it's hard to just give up on him.
My Papa send me to college by driving a truck. He is a man of action who's mantra is less talk, less mistake. He taught me the value of hard work rather than envying what other people have.
Our running bill has reached Php 608,652.27 and counting day by day. He is covered under Insular as my dependent. Unfortunately, we have maxed out the coverage. Thus, here comes a daughter appealing for help. Help me extend my Papa's life please..
"May God bless you a thousandfold!"
