Last February, my dad, Cresencio "Boyet" Custodio suffered two ruptured aneurysms and had to undergo brain surgery at the Philippine General Hospital. A third, unruptured aneurysm was also found and clamped.
[Complications during and after surgery; time spent in the ICU and ward.]
[Quick stat about aneurysms; thanks to the doctors and staff at PGH, and to loved ones for their support, financially and otherwise.]
Ma, Ate Ching, Shawee, Benok, Ace, and I will always be beyond thankful that Daddy survived the ordeal. We know we’re luckier than most! However, half a year after his operations, he’s still a long way off from recovering his ability to move, speak, and eat independently.
Currently, he receives physical therapy [x] days a week. He also requires round-the-clock monitoring and bedside assistance, so a professional caregiver is there to help us out 12 hours a day.
Our family currently spends around P5,000 a week on physical therapy and professional fees. Counting other expenses—such as doctor's fees, medications, food (nasogastric tube/NGT formula), and transportation for follow-up hospital check-ups—we’re looking at a total of about [x] a week.
We do what we can to pitch in financially, but with Ma due to retire in a few years, the loss of another family member’s income will be deeply felt.
So we’re asking for your assistance, family, friends, and kind internet strangers! Any form of help you can send our way would be greatly appreciated. Donate to Daddy’s recovery fund, share our GoGetFunding campaign, pray for his speedy recovery, send good vibes or funny cat photos (or both!)—no help is too small.
Thank you very much for your generosity,
Jan Michael Custodio
