Updates on Emergency Open Heart Surgery Operation for Edwin Tuyay

24-hour mark.
Update posted by Bruce Tuyay On Aug 16

Hey all!

Just wanted to thank everyone of you for all the love and support that you're showing us in these trying times. My Dad is doing fine right now, he's back to his normal day to day routine, minus the heavy lifting and anything else that requires exertion. Plus! You'll all be glad to know that he's eating healthy and he's taking his meds religiously. My mom is also looking out for him 24/7, they just came from the doctor who'll perform the surgery on him and everyone is kind of relieved that Dad's in good hands. Everyone is still anxious about the surgery but we're comforted by the fact that everyone is standing in solidarity with us.

Anyway! It's overwhelming to see and experience the outpouring of love and support from each and everyone of you, we've just hit the 24-hour mark and we've already raised 130k!! To tell you the truth, I was a bit hesitant to launch a fundraising campaign for him, and I wasn't the only one who was doubtful in our family about the possibility that we could raise this much money from crowdfunding but we ultimately decided to push through with it, thinking that if it works, it works. And here we all are 130k and counting still a long way to go but we'll get there eventually.

When we started this fundraiser, we only expected to raise up to 50k and we've already exceeded that amount. My Dad was moved to tears yesterday when he checked the fundraiser and saw that friends, relatives, strangers, basically people from everywhere especially his fellow Photographers from all over is actively looking out for him.

If you can, please take time to once again share this post/campaign, we're gonna need all the help we can get.

The Universe is working its magic through your gentle and caring hearts, continue to be a beacon of light for those who's fighting their way out of the dark.

All of our love,

Tuyay Family
