I don't know where to start, my name is Telle Castro from Manila, Philippines. My dad discouraged me in doing this but I am in my wits end because of what happened to my family. I went behind his back to do this fundraiser for my mom.
Last December 2018, as my family and I were preparing for the holidays, when my mom felt weak and chest pains that we had to rush her to the nearest hospital. And the doctors advised me and my dad for an emergency heart surgery and told us that she has an enlargement of her heart. Diagnosed later that she has a coronary artery disease. My dad and I asked the doctors if we could be have the surgery in January 2019. Months before that she was constantly complaining of chest pains, sudden, unexpected loss of heart function, breathing and consciousness. January 2019, we were able to celebrate Christmas and the New Year and the day before the operation was leading on. She fell into a coma for 3 weeks and had her surgery as scheduled. By this time our medical bills soared out of our ability to pay. As of now, she was in and out of the hospital due to her heart disease and the treatments. We desperately need financial help not only to pay back the hospital bills but also to pay for the medicine the doctors say she needs to survive. Whatever you can give to help us in this fight for her life, we will be eternally grateful for.
