I opted for this fundraising campaign for our 70-year old Uncle who was confined last September 19, 2017 in an Isolation Ward of a public hospital in our hometown in Cagayan de Oro, Philippines. Primary Diagnosis was Pulmonary Tuberculosis & Secondary Diagnosis was Pneumonia. He was released on October 1,2017 but on the eve of his birthday, October 7, 2017 - he was rushed again to the nearby public hospital around 9pm as he profusely coughing up blood and even his stool also has blood. Being in a public hospital, my Uncle was not attended to promptly. Together with my dear siblings & cousins - we decided to get an ambulance and transfer him to a private hospital. At around 3am, he was confined in Capitol University Medical Center (CUMC). The nurses immediately ordered for an RH+ component of he blood and administered the blood transfusion to replenish his lost blood. Lab tests were done and all and diagnosis is the same Pulmonary Tuberculosis, Pneumonia and they also found a cyst in his kidney. My Uncle had 5 doctors attending him and issued prescriptions here and there.
Now, dear family, friends, colleagues & relatives with good heart, on behalf of my Uncle Augusto “Nonong” Caballero Abas - I would like to seek financial support to defray hospital/ medical bills amounting to Php140,424.64. He is jobless, no pension and cannot even rely from his 4 children as they are financially incapable.
Any amount from each of you makes a difference! God bless you and your family.
