We are appealing to kind hearted people to help us get through this. Please, help us with my brother Collin's medical expenses.
He was diagnosed with liver cirrhosis 4 years ago. Because of this, he needs continued medication, check-ups, and laboratory tests. Last year, his health began to spiral downwards which led to two hospitalizations due to complications. He was first confined in the University of Santos Tomas Clinical Division June 2018 because of suspected pneumonia, then on November 2018, he underwent surgery due to umbilical hernia.
This year, he was again rushed to the hospital because of complications and infections from his JP drain which was placed after his surgery to prevent more fluid from building up in his abdomen (ascites). March 12, he was rushed to the emergency room again because of lack of appetite and lethargy. March 15 (Friday), he went back to the hospital after suffering from a seizure and as of today, he is still in USTH and is in need of more medical attention and a possible longer stay in the hospital.
These circumstances are putting strain on the finances of those helping him get treatment. His medication can cost at least Php13,000 a day, this excluding the cost of any laboratory procedures and other expenses needed at the time.
Please, help our family to get through this. Thank you very much.
