My name is Renz Eli Cacnio. I have started this GoFundMe account for my brother, Von Andrew "V.A." Cacnio.
My brother V.A. is a driver affiliated with the Transport Network Vehicle Service (TNVS) Grab. The car owner is our older sister, Jamaica Cacnio Santiago and as of current, she is still paying for the car mortgage.
My brother strategically schedules his trips at dawn or early morning to avoid traffic. On the morning of 16 Sep 2019 (Monday), around 3 A.M., while he was driving along the North Harbor Pier in Manila, he unfortunately got into a car accident – his car got under the rear part of a huge trailer truck. The part of the highway where the accident happened does not have enough lighting and the rain was heavily pouring at that time. So, he was not able to notice the truck parked by the road side and the front part of his car got totally wrecked. Good thing he did not have a passenger at that time.
It took two hours before an ambulance arrived and he was extracted from the car. He was rushed to the nearest hospital (Ospital ng Maynila). Around 5 in the morning, someone called his wife and informed her of the accident. At the hospital, he underwent a CT scan and it was found that he sustained a skull fracture and internal bleeding in the head. Because of this, he needed to undergo a surgery to remove the bleeding, fix the site of the injury and prevent any further complications. He was exhibiting what is called raccoon eyes (periorbital ecchymosis) and could not open his eyes. Because Ospital ng Maynila did not have enough facilities and resources to attend to my brother urgently, he was transferred to a nearby private hospital, Adventist Medical Center Manila. He underwent another round of CT scan. The neurologist advised that my brother needs to have a (head) surgery and be operated the soonest possible time. The estimated amount for the surgery is around $8000 (Php400,000) to $16000 (Php800,000).
Our family is working together to produce this amount of money. However, our current resources are not enough to fully cover my brother's hospital expenses (surgery, hospital stay, medications, etc). Hence, I have thought of creating this page and asking for your help.
Thank you for taking the time to read this. The funds that will be collected will greatly help us in paying for all of my brother's hospital expenses. I appeal to your generous hearts to make a donation and pray for my brother. Also, kindly share this campaign.
Thank you very much and may the Lord bless you abundantly.
