Our dad, Robert Claudio, has worked so hard all his life for us three girls. He worked overseas and was seldom home. Many times we would spend our Christmas, birthdays, recognitions and get-togethers without him. He worked like a horse. From the testimonies of my grandma, he would wake up 5am in the morning, and end working at 8pm. If he was determined, he would do overtime and end at 10pm. That was his routine. Every single day.
When he decided to finally stay with usfor good, what we all thought was just constant back pain turned out to be something we had never expected. February of 2017, he was diagnosed with prostate cancer - Stage 4. We turned to other doctors for second opinion, but it was all the same. Chemo and all the others were out of the options. Only time and painkillers could tell. It wasn't long before his body started deteriorating rapidly. Gone was our strong muscle-man.
We consider it a miracle that he's survived more than a year after his diagnosis. But we need more time to bond with him. That's the only way we could give back all he's sacrificed for us.
We are raising funds mainly for his painkillers - and if possible someway somehow, funds for his healing. We still strongly believe this, nothing is impossible with God.
