My father, Teodoro P. Mia, started his struggle when he experienced stomach pains on November 1. He took some medications but those medications caused him to get very constipated. The constipation got him weak and he was then admitted in the hospital. No laxatives or lubricants can help him release the bowels. A CTSCAN result shows he has blockage and an operation was needed. After the operation on his colon it was found out that he has Colon Cancer. A week after the operation he contacted pneumonia. The operation and the pneumonia caused him to be very weak.
He is currently confined in the ICU of the hospital and there is no defined schedule or date on when he will be released. Most of his medicines are given thru IV and he is currently in a hospital respirator.
Our current running bill is more than 300k and still increasing. We sought assistance from other institution but most have already stopped giving assistance as it is almost end of year. We are seeking financial assistance to anybody who can spare a few pesos to help in our medical expense.
