Help Mila Cruz Heal & Get Back Up

Update posted by Jen Jimenez On Jan 14, 2018

Mila underwent her first surgery-- IVC Filtration placement surgery last January 11 (not amputation yet) to prevent blood clots from traveling through her veins, to the heart or brain or other organs. Thank you to those who donated prior--- your contributions aided our aunt through her first week of confinement, laboratories and extensive medical tests (7 specialists are looking at her case as of date). Thank you for assisting her in this time of critical need. May you be blessed for your kindness.

We'd also like to thank the Hospital Liaison Commitee, and those who volunteered to take care of her especially since we are only very few in the family who can take care of her in the hospital and our health is already failing us also due to the consecutive sleepless days and nights. Thank you so much, Ate Friday, Rio and Ate Aida. This means a lot to us.

To those who wish to #HelpMila, please visit the page below:

To those who want to visit her, she's at the Philippine General Hospital- Department of Surgery (Main Building, 2nd floor, Ward 4, Bed 3). Visiting hours are 5pm-8pm. Just in case she's not there, that just means she's undergoing a short medical test (as she's undergoing a lot of those), but she'll be brought back there right away for sure.

Update: Tita Mila survived her first surgery (for the IVC filtration placement). Please continue to include us in your prayers.

Got confirmation from both OUMWA and Consulate that Aunt Mila will be arriving tomorrow evening here in PH from China accompanied by consulate officer as she will be wheelchair bound during the transfer.

We're still in non-stop daily coordination with the gov't to get Aunt Mila back home.

Philippine Consulate in China informed my aunt today that she will arrive in PH tom night but when we double checked with PH office in OUMWA, we were asked to just wait as there's no date yet from their China office.

Hopefully, we can get clearer and more definite response asap since we need to also get in touch with the ambulance and all upon her arrival here.

Actual amount of running medical bills in China hospital is already at P350,000 as of yesterday. We're very thankful to Dr. Mike Ong who is very kind and is looking after my aunt despite the unexpected treatment from Philippine consulate in China.

Got word from our Aunt Mila that despite the assurance from the PH DFA, the PH consulate is not acting promptly in China which is why the doctor asked also about the consulate whereabouts last time. As per my aunt, except for the visit last Dec.24 where consulate staff Ella asked her to ascertain with the doctor if she's fit to travel, there were no more visits. Aunt Mila currently has high fever and it's becoming harder to contact her. We're hoping that the consulate from China will assist her and reassure her from there that she's being looked after.

A friend from UP referred us to an NGO last night, Center for Migrant Advocacy Phils., Inc. who assisted us in following up with DFA right away. The head is very accommodating and prompt. This morning, she relayed that she got assurance from highest officials of DFA OUMWA USec Sarah Arriola and OWWA Admin Hans Cacdac that this is being looked into and that they'll continue to monitor.

A neighbor also reached out to Brgy. Capt. Ed Juan yesterday who helped us linked up with OUMWA office in Libertad to file another report (aside from the one we've coursed through 8888 helpdesk prior, 8888 however was limited since we were squeezed through the holidays and they said they cannot contact the office directly for the endorsement). The staff in Libertad were helpful and accommodating and gave us a contact number to follow up. The hotline number cannot be reached however as of today.

Our aunt is feeling weaker day by day and we pray that she'll get home alive and safely in time for her treatment. We'll continue the follow-ups and keep this page posted.

Update as of 12/27/17:

We're trying to get in touch with the consulate who visited my aunt abroad last 12/24 to request for the process to be expedited. Tita's right leg is numb already due to lack of blood flow. Doctor is following up also on the emergency evacuation. We'll also go to POEA OUMWA office today to follow up on the processing of the papers.
