Ricardo Valera, a retired employee and a hardworking, devoted father of 3 has been suffering a serious heart condition for the past 3 years. He was supposed to undergo heart surgery but due to complications given his age and financial incapacity, he has not been able to undergo the procedure and his only option until now is to continue with oral medications to sustain his life. He's been in and out of the hospital for the past months due to infection, leg thrombosis and palpitations.
He is currently in the ICU and is in dire need of financial support from family and friends as until now, doctors are still running several tests to determine cause of sickness. Tatay Ricardo has been suffering from difficulty in breathing due to fluid build up in the lungs caused by pulmonary edema and pneumonia and financial support is needed to sustain his medical expenses and procedures. Any form of assistance will go a long way.
