This fund raising campaign is for my father, Joel Padilla. Tatay is 56 years old only, residing in Valenzuela City. In 2013, he was found to have a brain tumor that blinded his left eye. He was then operated to remove the tumor in November of 2013. Unfortunately, the tumor grew again by 2015 with a larger size covering most parts of his brains. Our family resorted other options and tatay went to various therapies and medication but none of them dissolved the tumor so we decided to send him to surgery for the second time. After the second surgery just last March 2017, tatay became total blind, and his memory has deteriorated too. He fought recovery for six months but had seizure attacks that sends him to hospitalization again. For the third time in year 2017, he was hospitalized again due to pneumonia and hydrocephalus. He had his shunt inserted on December 2017. As of today, tatay is fighting to recover his health, he undergoes physical therapy, regular check ups and anti convulsant medications. Doctor said he needs radiation therapy to ensure total and permanent dissolution of his tumor. We are asking for help to win this fight for tatay's life. The funds raised by this campaign will be used for his radiation therapy, as well as his continued rehab therapy, check ups and medications. Thank you in advance and may God bless you all.
