Make Mama Dedel Cancer Free

Update posted by Ma Cecilia Calimon On Nov 04, 2019

Yesterday, November 3 at around 7 in the morning we hurriedly brought Ate Edel in the emergency room of Sacred Heart Hospital of Malolos because of low blood pressure. After she defecated she felt dizzy and on her way back to her room she collapsed. Good thing Ate Divine was behind her. She was able to control Ate Edel's fall by lowering her on the floor. I heard Ate Divine screaming for my name and asking for help. I rushed in Ate Edel's room and found both of them lying on the floor near the bed. Instantaneously, I transferred Ate Edel on her bed and tried talking to her. She responded by nodding her head a little and by saying, "oh" a few times. I checked her blood pressure and it was 70 over 50 (70/50) with a heart rate of 100 beats per minute.

When we arrived at the ER, Ate Edel's blood pressure is down to 50. Diagnosis is hypovolemia (a decreased volume of circulating blood or body fluids in the body). Hypovolemia is life threatening. She is currently admitted and blood transfusion has begun.

We exercised due diligence by paying the remaining balance in the hospital worth PHP 100,311.04 yesterday. If we did not settle the outstanding balance they will not allow her to be admitted due to hospital policies.

May you never get tired of offering prayers for our dear Ate Edel.

She's home

Ate Edel is discharged from Sacred Heart Hospital of Malolos last Friday, Ocotber 25, 2019. Our hospital bill total is PHP 281,811.04 including Professional Fees. We used her Philhealth Kasambahay to reduce the total amount of her hospital bill. Her Philhealth Kasambahay benefit is classified as first case rate amount. Ate Lenlen (sister of Ate Edel) applied for medical and hospital assistance for indigent patients in different government agencies. The Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) and Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office (PCSO) are generous enough to give financial assistance to indigent Filipino citizens. DSWD gave PHP 5,000 in cash and PCSO gave PHP 16,600 in Guarantee Letter for Ate Edel's confinement. Ate Lenlen also applied a request for assistance to discharge the patient from hospital in the Department of Health (DOH) to allow us to execute a promissory note for the settlement of the bill. We negotiated with the hospital and they asked us to leave a collateral. We complied to the hospital's policies and signed an agreement to pay the balance in three months. Upon Ate Edel's discharge, we have a remaining balance of PHP 100,311.04.

Since this is an unforeseeable and unfortunate hap, our family is not ready financially. We are knocking again on your unselfish hearts to share any amount to help us sustain Ate Edel's possible surgeries and treatments. We are considering to consult a new doctor for a second opinion. As I've mentioned on my first post, we will not give her up without even trying. Ate Edel's battle in cancer has just begun. Her siblings and our whole family are her warriors.

On behalf of Ate Edel, her siblings and our family, we would like to thank each and everyone of you. Thank you for including our dear Ate Edel in your daily prayers and for offering healing mass. Thank you for donating what you can. And thank you for sharing our fundraising link. May the good Lord bless you all.
