Help Us Secure a Second Chance for Our Hero, Dad, in His Prostate Cancer Battle
Dear friends and supporters,
We come to you today with heavy hearts and an urgent plea for help. Our beloved father, a loyal and dedicated family man, is facing a formidable adversary - advanced-stage prostate cancer with bone metastasis. His name is Fermin Javier, and he's not just our dad but also a caring and responsible provider for our family.
At just 66 years of age, he has been our family's rock, working tirelessly to ensure a comfortable life for us. He served as a faithful driver to his boss until his retirement, and we moved to Bulacan, Philippines to enjoy his well-deserved retirement.
However, the past year has brought a series of life-altering challenges. It all began with the troubling symptom of difficulty urinating. This seemingly minor issue eventually led to a catheter being inserted for nearly a year. Our world was turned upside down when the diagnosis came in - advanced-stage prostate cancer with bone metastasis.
Dad began undergoing medical treatment for his prostate cancer and the bone metastasis. Just as we were trying to grapple with this devastating news, he was diagnosed with tuberculosis. The tuberculosis treatment was essential, but it put his prostate cancer treatment more complicated.
While battling tuberculosis and waiting for the operation intended for his prostate cancer treatment, he faced yet another life-threatening crisis. He was rushed to the hospital due to pneumoperitoneum secondary to ruptured diverticulitis. This led to a challenging 4-hour operation, which, miraculously, he survived.
Now, he is on the path to recovery from this unexpected complication, preparing himself for another operation to combat the prostate cancer that threatens his life.
This is where we need your help, love, and support. The cost of Dad's ongoing medical treatment, coupled with the expenses of his medications, is overwhelming for our family. His daily medication alone costs approximately 8,000 pesos ($142.) We are reaching out to our friends, family, and community to join us in this battle to save our beloved father.
Your contributions will provide him with a lifeline, enabling us to cover the mounting medical bills, ensure he receives the necessary treatment for both prostate cancer and tuberculosis, and offer him a fighting chance at life.
Our dad is not just a hero to our family, but to many who have had the privilege of knowing him. He's a resilient, hardworking, and compassionate man who deserves to enjoy his retirement, see his grandchildren grow, and continue to be a source of strength and love for us all.
Please, help us support Dad's journey to recovery and give him the chance to live a full and healthy life. Your contributions, prayers, and shares of this fundraiser are deeply appreciated. Together, we can make a difference in his life and ensure that this chapter is not the end of our father's story.
He will be celebrating his birthday on the 28th of October. Please make his birthday more meaningful by knowing that you share his story.
Thank you for your love, support, and generosity.
With heartfelt gratitude,
Cristofer Javier and family
