A loving husband and a dedicated father of four, Tatay Berlie, 59, has been working for 32 years, way before I was existent in this world. To make ends meet, Tatay Berlie would always sacrifice being away from his family to be able to work. At 59 years old, there's no sign of Him slowing down and considering retirement being the last on his list, just to give his family a better future and have our youngest sibling graduate from college. Last January 7, 2018 (Sunday), as he was excited to be with his family and about to go on his way home (San Juan to Angeles City), tragedy struck our family, as we receive a phone call from one of his colleagues from work and an attending doctor in San Juan Medical Center, claiming that my father suffered from a CVA bleeding in his brain (Stroke). As we got there, we were devastated to see him in a heartbreaking state, to make matters worse, our head of the family that provides for us can't even lift his dominant left hand anymore. We were advised that his left side of the body suffered paralysis, if it is temporary, we still don't know. We worked hard and succeeded in transferring him in to a HMO approved hospital so we can utilize the health card, but to our surprise, in just a matter of hours staying in the ER and ICU, the HMO card was maxed out already (Php 120,000 limit), due to the facilitated treatments and cost of medicine which all summed up to a roughly Php 189,000. We were able to borrow money and sell a few stuff just to settle our account in Cardinal Santos Medical Center. Because of the inconvenient location and high cost of the hospital is charging us, we again requested and were able to transfer Tatay Berlie in a hospital in Angeles where we reside, which is convenient and way cheaper, we hoped and thought things will get better but alas, it just gets harder, as soon as we arrived in Sacred Heart Medical Center, the attending doctor diagnosed him of more serious health complications. A failing kidney, diabetes and hypertension which would make his recovery much harder and him staying in the hospital much longer. He is still under the Intensive Care Unit carefully being monitored. As a loved daughter, it is very difficult for me to see Tatay Berlie suffering, where he should have been retiring soon and finally enjoying life. I am humbly appealing to your good hearts to help our family get through these dark times by prayers and in kind donations. Let's give Tatay Berlie, hope and love, and for him to be able to enjoy life finally.
