Good day to anyone who might be reading this!
Hi! My name is Leia Angelu Gerardino. I am one of the granddaughters of Angel Guimbatan. As far as I know, he is the most thoughtful and God-fearing grandfather, father, husband, teacher, and friend that I've ever known. Due to old age, my grandfather has suffered several complications with his body especially with his now weak heart and diabetes. However, recently, he was diagnosed with Acute Pancreatitis that caused a blockage within his stomach and has to undergo an emergency procedure called the Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangiopancreatography (ERCP). By this time, my grandfather can still manage to smile despite all the pain he is experiencing. The operation costed more than 100,000 Philippine Pesos (or 5,400 USD) worth of hospital fees.The hospital said that he cannot be discharged unless the medical costs will be settled and we worry that the bill will grow larger day by day. Our family has already exhausted all our options, but still, our efforts might not be enough. In my humble state, I am tugging the string of the heart of the people who are currently reading this to share your prayers and generosity for my grandfather. Any help that we may receive will be greatly appreciated. May God Bless You!
