I am Jonathan Lawrence Tan, and this is my father Arsenio Tan Jr. Me and my family live in Legazpi City in the Philippines. I am currently a student as all my siblings and my caring and sweet father is retired. The only source of income that my family receives is from my mother, who works in Manila far away from our home so that we can have a humble life and make ends meet. My father is the greatest person me and my siblings ever had, he cares for us everyday since my mother is far away working. But he is now getting old, at his early 70's, and yet he has to take care of us everyday and attend to our needs. Sadly his eyes are starting to fail. Everyday he would walk to the market and he is afraid to cross the street. He is a sweet loving father that just wants nothing more than to read books and watch old movies as he reminisce his past and live out his life. He would want nothing more than to see his children grow up for the rest of his life. And I would want to give it to him, to say thanks for all the things he did for us, for raising us the people we would be. That is also the reason why I aspire to be a doctor after I graduate college this school year, so that in the future I can care for my parents in turn. So we turn to you and need your help, we also have financial aid from the government but it is not enough to treat both eyes.
So please give this loving father his sight back, he deserves it. Thank you and God Bless!!
