A strong kid needs a helping hand. He is my nephew. Last February 10, 2017 , Nathan Zabate, aged 8 years old, experienced an on/off fever. Monday, February 13, 2017, he collapsed and he was rushed to South General hospital. Laboratory result showed that his platelet was below the normal range. Later on we knew that he is already suffering with Dengue Fever. A strong and joyful kid turned to unhappy one. He always complained that his body aches. He feel so weak. His stomach was bloated. From 19k platelets dropped to 15k down to 14k. Some of his organs were already complicates (heart, lungs & liver). By that, he needs to have an intensive care. He needs to be monitored every now and then. So the doctor advised us that Nathan needs to be in the Intensive Care Unit. We decided to transferred him to Cebu Doctor's Hospital because we believed that they have complete equipment and they have the best doctors. For the time being, he is in the ICU and his doctor discovered that his lungs were filled with excess water and that it needs to be taken out immediately. His condition is still not good as of this writing. He needs further care so that he recovers.
As a family, we tried our best to give what we have for Nathan's recovery. We were able to cope up with the initial funding needs for the hospital, admission, medicines and laboratories. However, hospital bill are getting high. Medicines and doctor's fee were too expensive. All of our funds were already consumed.Our savings were previously drained by the hospital fees from South General Hospital to the Cebu Doctor's admission. As of now we roughly needs PHP 50,000.00
Right now, any amount helps. I can only give my gratitude in return as of the moment. Once we overcome this, you will be forever in our hearts. If you are comfortable with leaving your name or a contact number, please do so. I will create a thank you post for your kindness and in the future, help you back in return.
