My Gramps is a sprightly, sweet, groovy, and intelligent gentleman. He fills a room with his boisterous laugh over old family anecdotes, and his distinct commanding voice. Last April 2018, after a bleeding incident at home, and a trip to the ICU, our family found out that he had a cancerous tumor in his colorectal region. Over the past year, he has gone to and fro the hospital 5 times for multiple blood transfusions, suffered from a mild heart attack during his birth month last year, and pneumonia last February 2019 where he stayed in the hospital for almost 1 month.
As you can see, God is not done with my Grandfather yet. He is a fighter.
For a year, he has been hesitant to undergo surgery because he believed it would burden us, his family. However, he has now decided to undergo the procedure to have his tumor removed due to too many hospital trips for multiple incidents. Apart from his surgery, we have been advised by the doctor that he needs to be in the ICU post-op for close monitoring. Our family was informed that we would need about Php 250,000 ($ 4,800.00) for his surgery which will take place in 2 days. The additional Php 150,000 ($ 2,900.00) will be spent on his stay in the ICU, medication, blood transfusions, and post-op care.
With all this, we would like to reach out and ask for support in funding our Grampy's surgery, and other medical expenses. Any financial donation - big or small, would be highly appreciated. At the same time, we would also like to ask that you continue to pray with us during this time. Pray for a successful, complication-free surgery, and speedy post-op recovery so that my Gramps can get his groove back. We thank you in advance, and may God bless your generous hearts.
