I'm June Sarahina (https://www.facebook.com/junesarahina) and my sister, Jen, was hit by a drunk motorcycle rider last April 23 (Thursday), 7 pm in our hometown (Bacolod City, Philippines) while going home after her daily shift ended as a saleslady in Wilcon hardware store (located in Talisay City). The rider didn't have his headlight turned on, and have no license. We already filed a police report about the accident.
As a result, my sister suffered multiple fractures in her face region including left eye socket, cheekbones, and majority of nose area (Maxilla Le Fort 3), luckily her brain was cleared of injury by the doctor based on the CT scan they presented:
We had her admitted to Riverside Medical Hospital but decided to discharge her after a day because of the hospital's expensive charges.
We transferred her to a government (public) hospital, Corazon Locsin Regional Hospital in Bacolod, to lessen the expense and focus more on the surgery that she needs. Doctors are currently studying the extent of the operation needed for her face to be fixed and the total number of Titanium plates that they will be using. The doctor estimated 20 Titanium Plates but possibly more. And the cost of these titanium plates is around P12,000.00 ($250) per piece. We are asking for more affordable alternatives but they told us that for the skull, there are no other options but titanium. And the price doesn't include hospital and professional fees. I already sold some of my stuff just to come up even just for few plates but still not enough.
A friend suggested posting my sister's situation here to raise fund. I don't know if people will find my plea here but we are losing time as my sister needs this operation in 2 weeks time.
Any help for my sister will be greatly appreciated, even just for a couple of additional plates... You can visit my Facebook if you want more details as I'm also posting the situation of my sis in there.
Hope someone with a good heart can help us... Thank you so much.
