It has come to our attention that scammers in GOFUNDME site copied this fundraising campaign. Please ignore them. I am the ONLY organizer of this campaign. THANK YOU. -GUILLERMO "GUIL" KATIGBAK
Hi everyone, my name is Guil Katigbak.
Arlene Aurelia, my domestic partner for 18 years, was hospitalized for 15 days at Medical Center Imus (Imus Cavite) from March 21-April 4, 2021. She was 32 weeks pregnant, that's why her battle with Covid-19 was really hard.
I was also admitted at the hospital (New Sinai Hospital Sta Rosa Laguna) on March 22- April 3. Our 2 kids Yeye and Yuan were also tested positive with Covid-19 but with mild symptoms. They stayed home and did the 14-day quarantine. Thank God that their bodies were able to produce antibodies in a short period of time.
Our hospital bills mounted up to almost 1 million pesos. Mine was covered by philhealth and my daughter's medicard (Vina Katigbak). But Arlene's hospital bill was P846,000. Philhealth covered around P143,000 only.
Some of our savings were already used up for some household and medical expenses before we were admitted to the hospital that is why we are a knocking at your kind heart for any amount that you can help us. I understand that this is a very difficult time to everyone but if you can find it in yourself to help us by sending donations or by sharing this link, I will be forever grateful to you.
Arlene will give birth to BABY YANYAN, our 3rd child, around 1st or 2nd week of May. Funds will also be used for her C- section operation. The family is hoping and praying for a safe delivery of healthy Baby Yanyan. We might not be able to repay you with cash but we promise to have you in our daily prayers.
Thank you and God bless us all.
**UPDATE as of April 21, 2021 , the hospital bill was adjusted to P656,145.20. Philhealth was very gracious enough to approve our appeal to deduct a little more.
OUR ONLY PAYPAL ACCOUNT IS ARLENE'S. [email protected]
