Good day, I'm Jonathan Pelovello, 41 years old, categorized as a Person with disability, a father, an aspiring Youtube content creator and a fighter. I was diagnosed with CHF or Congestive Heart Failure in 2018 and was hospitalized for almost 2 weeks. I thought that time it was already the end of me but through the efforts of everybody around me I was able to survive and had lived a normal life. Four years had passed and here I am again battling with the same illness. Apparently once you have this disease, it will never go away. It will just stay dormant. I was complacent with my health. I was already told by the doctors to avoid stress and over fatigue and I ignored it. I forced myself to work and was able to get a job in Starbucks as a busboy. I wanted to work to provide for my family and not to be a burden to everybody. My contract started October 2022. I was working between 8 to 10 hours a day with only 1 day off a week. I was enjoying my job but my body can't take the pressure. After a month, symptoms started showing up. I easily get tired, having difficulty in breathing and harder to sleep. I thought I just needed a complete rest however come Christmas time, I cannot sleep lying down anymore. I felt that I am drowning every time I lie down. For me to get some sleep, I have to sleep sitting down on the couch. January 4 2022, I told my partner that I cannot take it anymore and I wanted to be brought to the hospital. We went to Ospital ng Muntinlupa which is a public hospital but was rejected since it was already in full capacity. My partner called Las Pinas District and was told the same thing. Until we came by the Las Pinas City Medical Center. It was a private hospital and we took the chance since I am running out of breath. The doctors and nurses there attended to us immediately and was told that water is already accumulating in my heart. I was also told that by body had started swelling up due to the fluid retention. I was given medicines right away and was told that I need to be admitted. I was admitted for 4 days and had billed around Php 180k. With God's grace and the help and donations of everybody we were able to pay it and I was able to go home. I was told that I need to have an angiogram and angioplasty as soon as possible since 25% of my heart is slowly dying. I was told to prepare around 500 to 650 thousand Pesos. Since I don't have that kind of money the doctor had prescribed me 10 medicines that I need to take on a daily basis while we are still saving up for the procedure. My medicine costs Php 450 a day or around US$10. We started asking help from our government officials and slowly collecting guarantee letters until we can come up with the said amount however while we are doing that I badly needed assistance with my medicines everyday. Going from office to office and lining up for charity costs a lot as well that's why I am already having a hard time to fund my medicines. I am humbly asking all your kind hearts for help. Help me live. Help me live for my children and family. I would truly appreciate any help that you can extend. Attached are my Medical documents. Thank you and God bless you all.
