My wife, Marivic Awa Mangilit, was hospitalized last October 6, 2016 at the Southeast Asian Medical Center in Molino, Bacoor City, Cavite where she was diagnosed with a stroke (CVD Bleed). She was later on transferred to University of Perpetual Help Medical Center in Las Pinas City on October 9 where she eventually had brain surgery to help drain the blood clot that has formed in her brain. She is currently in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) of the University of Perpetual Help Medical Center, and it has been more than two months and she is now in comatose state.
We appeal to every kind-hearted soul, who are willing to help us as we try to save the life of my wife, Marivic. As of now, our hospital bill in Perpetual Help is running up to two million plus pesos. These bills do not include her medicines, expenses, and such things as diapers and underpads, and most of all the professional fees of batteries of her doctors, surgeons, and anesthesiologists.
As per prognosis of her neurologist, Dra. Charisma Evangelista, there is no telling when she will finally wake up from her vegetative state. As of now she is able to open her eyes and occasionally exhibit visual tracking and response to pain but she is unable to move voluntarily, she will need more time to recover and with her current state, there’s no certainty on how long Marivic will stay in the Intensive Care Unit.
And with this current situation, may we ask again, please, to help us save Marivic’s life by supporting us financially. We will be very grateful to every penny or centavo donated to this fundraising campaign.
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you very much in advance!
July 6, 2017. Today, is the 9th month of my wife at the hospital. She suffered a Stroke last October 6, 2016 and eversince, she is confined at the University of Perpertual Help Medical Center in Las Pinas. Thank you very much for your cash assistance.
June 9, 2017. Today is our 8th month at the University of Perpetual Help Medical Center in Las Pinas. I just wish we could have our normal life again, especially for my daughter Mikee, who forego her studies due to financial constraint. We are still awaiting for donors for my wife. Thank you very much again and again!
June 6, 2017. Today is the 8th month since my wife, Marivic, had a Stroke. And we are still looking for donors for her continuous medications , also, so that we can secure her discharge from the hospital, the University of Perpetual Help Medical Center Las Pinas City, Philippines. Thank you very much.
May 27, 2017. This morning, my wife's doctor, Dra. Charisma Evangelista told us that it would be better if we could get my wife out of the hospital and continue her care at home. She said that the reason for this is to prevent contamination and infections from contacting her at the same time it may help hasten her recovery. But now our problem is how to deal with our hospital bills which is now at 6 million plus pesos (PhP). I'm afraid to talk to the billing manager (and she's known as a terror here in Perpetual Help) of the hospital since I have nothing to offer and no cash except our house and lot. May I appeal continuously for your kindness to help us raise funds for my wife, Marivic, any amount will do, so that I will have the courage to negotiate with the hospital and finally secure and discharge. We sincerely appreciate the financial assistance you will give us. Thank you very much!
May 20, 2017. Last May 10, my wife was given the red light to transfer to a regular. Now, after 10 days, my wife is doing okay so far, except for her big bed sore. She still gets her medications continuously although at this point in time, we are running out of funds and we are still looking for donors. We hope again and again you can help us sustain her medications by giving us donations. I'm the only one watching over my wife, Marivic at the hospital (Perpetual Help Hospital Las Pinas) 24/7. Thank you very much for sharing us your time and money...
May 6, 2017. Today, 7 months after the Stroke, I'm still waiting for the ICU resident doctors to give their go-signal and their transfer out order to let my wife Marivic be brought out of the Intensive Care Unit and transfer to a regular room. For the meantime, during visitation hours, I'm doing the rehabilitation (therapy) of my wife from the neck down to the toes. One session of rehabilitation from the hospital (lasting only about 10 minutes) cost 794.00 pesos, which I can't afford. I hope those who are reading this fundraiser can give us some financial assistance so that we can continue the medication of my wife and hopefully secure her discharged order from the hospital. Her standing hospital bill so far, is almost 6 million pesos excluding professional fees of the Doctors. Thank you very much for taking time reading this and thank you for your financial assistance.
April 30, 2017. My wife is almost awake mentally. Three times already when I ask her to stick her tongue out, she obeyed (last April 18, 22 and 25). Since April 26, the oxygen connected to her was already removed, which means she can now breathe on her own. Yesterday, April 29, her doctor (Dra. Charisma Evangelista) has given the approval to transfer her to a regular room, if possible, near a nurse station. And again, today, the same doctor reiterated her approval and seconded by the ICU resident Dr. Allen Villanueva who ask us if we can secure a discharged order from the hospital. I told Doc Allen we cannot since our hospital bill stands at 5 million pesos plus after almost 7 months of confinement. My family and I hope and pray again to our kind VIEWERS of this fundraising campaign may contribute and donate to this cause so that we can pay our standing bill and finally secure discharged order from the hospital. Thank you very much for your kind help. Our family will very much appreciate and be very grateful to whatever amount you can spare us. Again, thank you very much, especially to our VIEWERS.
March 21, 2017. Finally, my wife was transferred from the hospital ICU to the ward. But after only 6 days in the ward, my wife had difficulty breathing and she had to be connected again to a ventilator. But even with the small ventilator connected to her, she still had high Respiratory Rate.
And so on March 27, 2017, we decided to return her to the ICU so she can be attended by a full time nurse. Currently, my wife is still confined at the ICU and the resident doctor have an standing order to re-connect her to an Oxygen and remove the ventilator.
March 17, 2017. Almost but not quite. Just when it seems everything is going alright, again, problem arises. For the last 5 months, I got no job, hence, no salary. Perpetual Help Hospital has been my home. And I'm the only one taking care of my wife, Marivic. Financial aid has stopped and my last drop of money will last for 3 days at most. But I'm still hoping that somehow, somewhere someone will come to our aid and pull us out of this sink hole we're in. Thank you very much!
March 6, 2017. Today is the 5th month of my wife, Vikki, at the ICU of Perpetual Help Hospital in Las Pinas City. She is still in a coma state, although there are improvements on her condition. She has now little hand and feet movement and noticeable rolling eyeballs. Hope you continue to support us financially so that we can sustain her medicines and other supplies. Our hospital bills stand at 3.3M. Thank you very much for your generosity.
Today is Wednesday, March 1, 2017. It's almost 5 months now since my wife had a stroke. And until now, my wife is still at the Intensive Care Unit of the University of Perpetual Help Medical Center in Las Pinas City. Hospital Bill as of February 14, 2017 was at Php 3.1M plus. Aside from the hospital bills which is about Php20,000 per day, our daily medicines expenses including diapers and other things is at Php2,000. Again, we beg you our dear donors to please continue to support my wife financially. It's almost 5 months now since I stopped working. There is no one to take care of my wife except me. Our relatives are living in the provinces (Bicol & Pampanga). I don't have any salary that's why we're just relying on donations coming from relatives, friends and kind-hearted donors like you. Thank you very much for spending some time reading this. I hope you can spare some money for the continuous medication of my wife Marivic Awa Mangilit. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you....
Last December 13, my wife, Marivic Awa Mangilit had undergone a CT scan. Her results showed that she has an infection on her right brain. According to her attending physician, Dra. Charisma Evangelista, she will need to take antibiotics for 14 days. The cost of 1 vial of antibiotics, Prepenem 500mg, is Php1,824.29 each, and she has to take it every 8 hours (3 times a day).
May I ask for your help again. I'm not reporting for work for 3 months now since I am the only one overseeing her in the hospital. We are only a family of three and my daughter is still studying. I don't know where to find this much money and weekend is almost here again. I have a pending receipt in the hospital pharmacy worth Php8,000.00 and I said to the doctor I don't have the money yet since I just bought about Php10,000.00 worth of Medicines just this morning of December 15. Aside from this, the daily rate at the ICU costs Php30,000+ per day, including the apparatus that are attached to her.
We are now on our 4th month here in Perpetual Help Hospital ICU. We already ran out of options as to where we can obtain the money to pay for my wife's hospital bill. We are relying on you, donors, to please help us raise the needed amount to pay the bills. We're still hoping and hoping... against hope....
Again, thank you very much in advance for whatever amount you can spare us. Thank you... and more thank you...
