I hope this letter finds you well. I am reaching out to share some urgent and distressing news about our father, Wilfredo Mercado.

Last July 2023, he was diagnosed with Rectal Mass; Descending Colon Polyp. Upon further laboratories and diagnostics, it turned out that the Rectal Mass was a RECTAL CANCER. The tumor was only 5.3 cm above from the anus. As per Doctor's advice, he need to undergo an operation wherein his anus will be permanently close and he will be having a lifetime colostomy bag (a plastic bag that collects fecal matter/stool from the digestive tract through an opening in the abdominal walled called a stoma).

Having that disease, it is really a burden to my father physically, emotionally and financially as well as in our family. Our finances have exhausted already. He was hospitalized last August 2023 due to Heart Attack (Acute Myocardial Infarction) and COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease) as he is also battling with COPD since 2019. Our expenses in his medication for COPD is about Php 12,000.00 -15,000.00 monthly since 2019.

Currently, another treatment is needed, an expensive procedure approximately Php 500,000.00 or $ 9,100.00 known as Abdominoperineal Resection to be conducted at Allied Care Experts Medical Center Baliwag here in the Philippines hopefully this November. This procedure is vital to prevent blocking of his stool to his anus. Once the operation is successful, he will also undergo Chemotherapy. This will help him to extend his life, live and return to his normal and happy life.

I sincerely appeal and humbly ask for help to each of you to open your hearts and share what you can to fund his procedure and also include him in your prayer. Rest assured that the donations made to this will go directly to my father's operation. Every contribution no matter how big or small will make a significant difference in my father's life.

Thank you for your kindness and generosity.
