I'm Marivic Mentopa, daughter of this hardworking man whose name is Renante Mentopa. He is a compassionate and supportive father. He used to be a collector in a company for more than ten years enduring the heat of the sun and the rain just so he can accomplish his job and bring food for his family. We are so proud of him because he provided what our family needs especially for our education. We never hear him complain about any pain he felt in his body. He always say "I'm good" when in reality it's not. He will only tell us that he has a migraine. Not knowing that his condition was more than just a migraine.
Last October 3 this year, he experienced seizure. We had him checked by a doctor and was diagnosed with sinusitis. After how many days, things went well again. When suddenly, November 9, he had another episode of seizure and this time it happened 3 times in a row. We rushed him again to the same hospital and was told the same thing, that it was sinusitis. We were not contented with the result. So the next day, we decided to consult a different doctor. We were advised to have my father admitted in a hospital for further tests. He had his ct scan and mri. The results were the same, saying there is a Tumor in his head causing his seizures. It was big enough that he needs to undergo surgery. The tumor is pressing some veins in his brain and eyes causing the seizure, dizziness and his right eye to almost go blind.
My father went through Crainotomy which lasted for 12 hours. He is now recovering in the ICU. The doctors were amazed on how quick my father was able to recover. He was able to talk and smile the moment he opened his eyes.
My father is indeed a fighter. He told us that he really wants to survive for us. That even in his situation, we are still his priority.
We already spent all our funds and yet we are still far from paying off the bill. We are humbly asking for your help in settling my father's hospital bills and medication.
Let's show compassion to the man who taught me and my brother that family comes first. My father deserves another shot in life.
