Owen Jake Africa is an ordinary 15-year-old student from Las Pinas City, Philippines. Growing up, he had a difficult time adapting and making friends in his school. He transferred school and finally found friends with his new classmates. But I guess life is not all rainbows for him. One morning we noticed that his eyes are swollen and we thought it was bitten by a bug and it will just go away. He did not have any other symptoms, no fever, no cough, or cold. Day 3, and we started noticing that his eyes is starting to bulge out. We immediately consulted an Ophthalmologist in Perpetual. The doctor said, his eye condition is called Proptosis. Since he does not have symptoms of infection, he referred us to an Orbit Specialist in Asian Hospital. Unfortunately, we will still need to wait for 7 days to get him seen. We looked for other Orbit Specialists in Metro Manila and finally found Dr. Santos who is very helpful to us. She understood that we might have difficulty in paying Owen Jake's medical needs considering he needs immediate care. So she referred us to UERM Memorial Medical Center.

Owen Jake is currently under observation and undergoing tests at UERM Memorial Medical Center in Quezon City. Please help us fund his laboratory exams, MRI, CT Scan, biopsy, surgery, and other medical needs so he can come home. His previous CT Scan of the Orbit showed a neoplasm in his sinus that is pushing his eyes out and osteomyelitis. Doctors are still trying to figure out if his tumor can undergo surgery.

Doctors said we need to raise 150,000 for his 7-10 days approximate stay in the hospital.

We are in need of your help to save him so he can go back to school and live his normal life. We love him so much and it hurts us that he still talks about how he missed school.

I would like to ask you guys if you have any extra money to spare, it would mean so much to us and I will forever be in debt to your kindness.
