His name is Edwin Martinez, 49 years old. OFW for 8 years in Doha Qatar and now he was based New Zealand for almost a year now. Before he went to New Zealand, he stayed in the Philippines for 2 years, he had no permanent job but sometimes he has sideline. I have four siblings, even though two of them are working the salary is not enough for us.
On his first year in New Zealand he was fine, but month passed by, he was getting worst everyday. At first we thought it's only a simple pain, until we found out that it is not just a simple case. After several check ups, he was diagnosed of Cancer in Lymphoma. He cannot eat or breath properly due to his condition. He has masses in his right neck and it increased.
Lastly, March 19, 2020. He was admitted at Canterbury District Health Board, Christchurch Hospital. Unfortunately, he has no health insurance there because he is not resident in New Zealand. The doctor said that he needs urgent treatment by doing chemotherapy. It can be done in NZ or here in the Philippines.
Treatment in NZ would be that expensive and we honestly cannot afford that. He decided to go back here in the PH as soon as possible and we can look for hospital that can assist his condition right away.
But due to pandemic COVID-19 domestic and international flights were cancelled.
Maybe its bad timing, because we our now under in State of Calamity, but honestly we badly needed help especially for the financial. I am asking everyone to help us. Kindly include us in your prayer. Thank you and God bless.
"But I am telling you the truth. It is better for you that I go away, because if I do not go, the helper will not come to you. But if I do go away then I will send him to you." Matthew 16:7
