On May 27, 2019, my mother, Helen, was rushed to the hospital because of severe headache. We did not think it was as complicated as it is until her doctor told us the diagnosis. My mother is suffering from Hypertension Stage 2 and Diabetes Mellitus Type 2 which exacerbated into Cerebellar Infarction with Brainstem Compression and Minimal Hemorrhagic Conversion. One week after, we put her in the ICU for a more comprehensive monitoring, but we took her out of the hospital because the condition was not getting better. To add to that, the ICU costs Php10 000 each day, excluding the expensive prescriptions, CT Scanning, oxygen, and never-ending laboratory tests. Now her sickeness, left her bedridden, dependent on nasogastric feeding, and on catheter excretion, and is assisted with supplemental oxygen. Every now and then, we have to renew these life supporting essentials to sustain her life.
Undeniably, my mother's condition is taking a toll not only to her health but also to our financial capability. Her maintenance medicines, oxygen, food, NGT, and catheter cost us more than Php 5 000 every week. Our monthly income could barely sustain such cost. As such, her condition continues to exacerbate because we cannot provide her what she needs. Given these unfortunate events, I could not deny that at some point, I almost gave up. But every time we ask my mother to move her feet or hand as an affirmation if she is still willing to fight, she does it. And so we continue to fight alongside her tirelessly.
As such we are imploring your benevolent hearts for financial help. Any amount will be highly appreciated. All of it will go straight to my mother's maintenance. You may contact me through my cellphone number, 09287224405, or through my gmail account, [email protected] for inquiries.
She has been a strong, dependable mother to me, my siblings and my father. And now, she's the one depending on us and on our strength.
Thank you very much and God bless you all!
