When COVID hit our country, I said to myself, "Mama should never get infected; surely, it will be so hard for her." She was diagnosed with cancer last 2016 and is now recovering from it; hence, cancer made her immune system weak. Last April 30, 2021, one of the things that I am fearful about happened, my mom tested positive for COVID.
May 3, 2021, I had to rush her to the hospital as she was already experiencing difficulty breathing, but all the hospitals that we tried were in full capacity, and I have no choice but to wait for a slot to open up. May 4, 2021, Mama experienced breathing difficulty again, and thankfully, she was admitted to the hospital.
Currently, Mama is still in the hospital, and I am the one taking care of her. Seeing Mama in this kind of situation breaks my heart, but I know I have to be strong for her.
As cliché as it may sound, but for me, Mama is one of the kindest and selfless people in the world! She is a helping hand for those in need, and I continue to witness that, primarily through different outreach activities she became part of. She would always put others first before herself and would not even think twice to help out even if she does not have much. Indeed, she has the most beautiful heart for me.
Her hospital bill keeps on rising, and on her first day, the amount has reached 77 615.32. I know her bill will continue to grow each day of her stay in the hospital but what matters most to us is for her to be healed completely.
I created this fundraising campaign to help ease our medical expenses during this challenging journey. I hope and pray that she would receive the same amount she selflessly gives to others through your prayers and financial support. I am praying that more people would journey with us in this battle as Mama recovers from COVID.
We would appreciate any amount you can give. Your involvement will genuinely make a difference! May God bless you and stay safe!
