This fund raiser is for my father.
Last march my father was admitted to the hospital, he was running out of breath and is having difficulty walking and urinating. There were too many complications, his kidney wont take all the medications and is making him weaker and weaker, he is having some difficulty breathing because his lungs is also being filled with water.
His stomach, legs, face and his testicles are swollen already and he can’t afford a surgery due to his diabetes and also financial incapacity.
As much as we wanted to bring him to a good hospital, we do not have the funds to pay his bills. My sister in UAE lost her job because she and four other filipino staff was accused of stealing money from their work but has not been proven guilty nor provided with any proof that the accusations were real, however they cannot find a job due to the quarantine and also the government is still holding their documents until the case is done, my boss’ business closed due to the lockdown in new york, none of us in the family is getting an income that can support my dad’s medication and even his daily refill for his oxygen tank. He cannot breath without his oxygen tank.
We are like watching a candle slowly getting burned. February 2020 my father was not this guy, he was healthy, strong and full of life. Life takes away things from us in an instant so lets all be healthy and safe all the time.
