This is my uncle Efren Nicolas,a Glaucoma and Diabetic patient. He has no wife, nor kids and no source of income to help his eyes check regularly. he spends his life serving in church (when his eyes were not partially blind).
Diabetes is a number of diseases that involve problems with the hormone insulin. Normally, the pancreas (an organ behind the stomach) releases insulin to help your body store and use the sugar and fat from the food you eat. Diabetes can occur when the pancreas produces very little or no insulin, or when the body does not respond appropriately to insulin. As yet, there is no cure. People with diabetes need to manage their disease to stay healthy. (source: webmd). in my uncle's case his diabetes is genetic.
April 2018, he felt symptoms like blurred vision, severe eye pain, headache, abdominal pain, nausea, and vomiting. upon his check up, it was diagnosed glaucoma.
Glaucoma is a condition that causes damage to your eye's optic nerve and gets worse over time. It's often linked to a buildup of pressure inside your eye. Glaucoma tends to be inherited and may not show up until later in life. (source:webmd)
though he is now partially blind he still fighting, not giving up and trusting our God that He will do miracle on his eyes or use people to help him.
he is holding to this Bible verse on Psalm 25:1 "Lord, I put my life in Your hand. I trust in you, my God"
"i want to inspire people. i want someone to look at me and say "because of you, i didn't give up"
if you could donate a cent is a big big help for him for his doctor's visits, laboratories and medicines. your prayer and encouragement is a big help too as losing his vision is depressing.
thank you so much for helping him, our Lord will bless you a hundredfold.
