Today, I am storming heaven with prayers and hope as I beg for your help to raise some financial help for a great family who had lost a loving father and devoted husband after a hard fought and a years of long battle with a lot of illnesses. Coping from a painful loss and dealing from an uncertain future is extremely difficult. His bereaved family is now on the verge of losing their precious home because of the huge substantial debts and skyrocketing unpaid hospital bills they have incurred during his long hospitalizations / medications and could no longer afford to overcome.
Please join me in helping this family in saving their home and help take at least one burden off their shoulders.100% of your generous donations(less GGF processing fees) will be received directly by Uncle Rene's family.
Your spirit of giving and kindness really matters. We will be eternally grateful to you. Together, let us be their hope.Thank you and may God bless you.
Here is the reason behind this plea:
For everyone who does not know, uncle Rene, started to dealt with an enormous health challenges in 2014. He was constantly admitted in and out of the hospital for over five years and badly suffered from prostate cancer, heart failure, hypertension, autoimmune diseases, diabetes w/ insulin requiring, liver failure, lung infections (pneumonia & tubercolosis), sepsis and other complications I could not honestly list down one by one.
Despite of being not well-off, his family stood strong and prepared to face the battle ahead. Uncle Rene doesn't have any medical insurance and that takes an even more devastating toll on his family. The long process of his medications, treatments, surgeries and hospitalizations have caused to deplete their resources. They have 4 children and 3 of them are working, while his wife, my aunt Beth is unemployed because she's also taking care of her parents ages 85 & 88 yrs old who both have dementia. One of the many unfortunate impacts of his medical condition is the interruption of his children from their jobs. When uncle Rene became physically disabled, one of his children needed to step down and quit her job to focus on taking care of him full time. Due to diabetes complication, he underwent several amputation operations and lost both of his legs. Balancing their finances has been extremely difficult to his two other children especially with his on-going medications. Their financial difficulties even went to an extent where they already needed to sell stuffs like their appliances, furniture and even their clothes, bags and shoes in order to alleviate from all medical and financial strains. However, all these are not enough to make their ends meet.
Out of desperation in overcoming those pending hospital bills and other related expenses, uncle Rene's family resorted in acquiring a loan in Nov. 2017 and used their house as collateral. Unfortunately, 2018 came uneasy for them. In Feb. 22 2018, uncle Rene was brought to the hospital where he was diagnosed of sepsis & liver failure. His lungs was also covered with plenty of fluids that required him to be confined for almost 4 months. When he was given a discharge order, everyone was so ecstatic. However around 6 a.m. of Jun 28, uncle Rene was found unconscious and went in the state of coma. How can you grasp the reality that what supposed to be a joyful day, ended up to be painful and devastating. His condition wreaks havoc his family and all we ever do is pray for a miracle. Sadly, none of our prayers yielded to positive results. They are facing a situation that no person in this earth should have to face. I could not even imagined myself being in that kind of situation.They only have a limited financial resources, so limited that could not even cope with all the hospital expenses.
Uncle Rene spent almost 7 grueling months in the hospital and passes away last Jan.29. He had multiple heart attacks, brain hemorrhage and succumbed to multiple organ failure because his body could no longer prolonged the ever growing infections. The doctor's adviced was to shut down his life support. His family was not yet ready to let him go and waited for few more days that perhaps miracle could happen, but to no avail. Painful and heartbreaking as it is, they left with no choice but to let Uncle Rene go.
Following a painful loss, his family is now facing another dilemma. They might lose their precious home because of the huge substantial debts they have incurred during Uncle Rene's long battle of illnesses. The lender will seize their home if they fail to settle their debts.
I am begging everyone as I know uncle Rene would have beg the same for his family. If we could all gather some amount to help this great family in saving their home, it would be a blessing. Please, let us be their hope.
Thank you very much for you time, kindness and generosity. May God bless us all!
In sincere gratitude,
