US$3,110.00raised of $7,000.00 goal goal
Dad passed away due to stroke complications early Tuesday morning at 4:40 am, August 16, 2022.
He has been a true and faithful servant of God to the very end. He not only exemplified what it means to be a true Christian soldier but that of a faithful husband to our mother; a hard-working, patient, and loving father, brother, and grandfather not only to his family but to many; a convicted and passionate leader fueled by principle; and a true friend to all.
The last few days of his life and putting him to rest hav been a very heavy burden to bear. Our family would like you to join us in honoring our Dad and his legacy by giving him the very best, as he has given us his all.
His last words were: “Walk with Yahweh (God), Wait on Yahweh (God).”
ORIGINAL CAMPAIGN POST: SAVING ED MACARAEG MEDICAL FUND
Our Dad, Edmond Macaraeg, suffered a stroke around midnight, Friday, August 5, 2022.
The tests initially showed that he had an ischemic stroke which had affected the left side of his brain. Upon further tests it has been determined that he had a cardio embolic stroke (blood clot that shot up from his heart to his brain), and is also battling pneumonia.
Dad is a frugal and practical-minded man. He would rather suffer at home and be with his family than spend money on himself at a hospital. However, our family cannot bear to see him in pain, and we still want him to be around for several more years to enjoy the fruits of his labor. He has 7 children with 18 grandchildren (3 of whom he has not physically met yet).
Dad's legacy has always been that of a whole-hearted and faithful devotion to the Almighty regardless of the cost - be it his health or opportunities for wealth. He does not have any earthly treasure or financial insurance, but his faith is worth its weight in heavenly gold. He walks by faith, not by sight.
Our family, extended family, and families of local church brethren have shouldered the initial cost of admittance and testing. However, as we all know, hospital costs can add up very quickly.
Based upon billing to date (Wednesday, 8/10/22), we project a 5-day stay (with his release on Friday, 8/12/22) to be approximately $5,000.00 (USD).
(**Please see updates as there have been setbacks**)
Our family would like you to join us in honoring our Dad by helping him live and regain his quality of life once again. It is our prayer that his journey to health be speedy. If you are able, your help in covering these expenses would be a true blessing to our dad, Edmond Macaraeg.
Thank you so much for the outpouring of your love and prayers.
