Last year my second brother, Xavier (Eks, as we fondly call him) finally decided to work abroad to suffice his kids specially since his daughter Jadah already started going to school. He is a young father of 2 beautiful children. Jadah is now 7 and his young boy, Xian is 2. He had high hopes for his children. They're his inspiration to strive hard as an outdoor salesman here in Abu Dhabi, UAE. He battled the scorching summer heat just to reach his qouta.
His hopes, his dreams, his ambitions for the future of his family is now far from reach after a very unfortunate event that shook our family to the core. Last September 13, 2016 Eks had a massive brainstem hemorrhage due to an undiagnosed malignant hypertension. We never saw it coming, he did not complain about anything, any symptom before.
He was rushed to Sheik Khalifa Medical City where he was admitted in the Intensive Care Unit for a month where he is hooked to life support system and medication via central line. Eks showed signs of healing – he opens his left eye every time his being stimulated by touch. On October 13, 2016 he was transferred from the ICU to the High Dependence Ward where he will received the subsequent medical management. To this date however, his condition remains to be far from stable as to warrant a medical clearance for his travel back to the Philippines.
Doctors advised us to be ready for the slow, painful and expensive process for Eks recovery while in Abu Dhabi, UAE and here in the Philippines. That there will be complications and resulting impairments such as: permanent or partial paralysis, impaired speech, blindness, controlling emotions, depression, etc. which most, can now be treated through rehabilitative therapy. And it is what our family shall do for Eks no matter how long it takes.
We are earnestly asking your help to raise funds for him to be able to pay hospital bills, the large expense for his eventual travel back to the Philippines and his consequential long term care and therapeutic rehabilitation.
We hope that you find it in your heart to be generous in helping us. We are looking forward to spend more time with Xavier doing enjoyable family things. Please help him survive and ease the suffering that he is now into. We will be forever grateful for all the help that you can give us.
May the Almighty bless you and your family.
From our family to yours, thank you so much.
