Hi guys. Sorry to bother you. We’d like to ask for your help with our uncle (Mom’s elder brother). His name is Vicente Villaruel Jr. We call him Uncle Bebing. He’s a 69 year old guy living in Oriental Mindoro, Philippines. He’s been unemployed for a long time. No family except us, his extended family.
Last Tuesday, March 2. He went into surgery to remove his right kidney completely due to a huge tumor covering almost the whole organ. Based on the size of the tumor alone, the doctor concluded its cancer.
On top of that, his left kidney has a big stone that needs to be removed in a follow-up surgery. See the pictures below of his right kidney plus mass removed.
We were afraid he might not survive the surgery. He’s not in the best condition to begin with. To further complicate things, he has an enlarged heart due to chronic hypertension. Meaning, his chances of survival is terribly low. By God’s grace he is able to survive without complications and is recovering at home. He lost a lot of weight yet thankful he survived. We keep on praying as he needs to undergo the next surgery to remove the huge stone on his left kidney.
Having been thru the first surgery, plus medication and hospitalization and upcoming procedure, Uncle Bebing is in need of your financial help to push thru and complete these. Our family is helping Uncle Bebing, however this trial and the COVID-19 pandemic puts a huge financial strain on us. We are thankful for friends and family helping Uncle bebing. We are also asking for your generosity and kindness. Even $1US is a step closer to our goal of $13000.
The funds raised will be used for:
- Surgery Number 1 – removed his right kidney
- Outpatient laboratories and procedures
- Doctors’ Medical Fees
- Doctors’ Fee for check-up post-surgery
- Surgery Number 2: Remove the huge stone on his left kidney
- Outpatient cardiopulmonary clearance and procedures
- Doctors’ Medical Fees
- CT Scan every 3 months post surgery to check the spread of cancer in his organs
We have set up this GoGetFunding Account to help gather resources for such medical procedures stated above. We also need your prayers and kind messages to encourage Uncle Bebing. We may be far apart, but your encouraging messages will reach Uncle Bebing.
We deeply appreciate and sincerely thank you from the bottom of our hearts. We will continually post updates on Uncle Bebing’s condition, as necessary.
Thank you so much.
God sees your generous heart. May He be generous in His blessings as you have been to us.
- Uncle Bebing’s Extended Family
