Our mum - Norma Manapsal has sadly passed away on 29 March 2018. We are greatly thankful for all your support, donations, and prayers. Your donations have definitely helped us.
This site will be closed on 30 April 2018
is currently in ICU and has been for over 3 weeks now.
She was rushed to the hospital because she was unable to urinate &
CT scan revealed that her kidney was failing due to septicemia caused by
a ruptured intestine which she was unaware of.
Mum flat-lined 3 times while in surgery and once in ICU and
she survived these. During her first days in ICU, the doctors gave us a
prognosis of 40% chance of survival. But mum is a fighter and has always
been a fighter and we will fight with her. While her recovery is slow,
she is improving daily.
She is still on ventilator as she
is unable to breathe on her own. She is feeding through nasogastric tube
(NGT) & taking antibiotics and blood transfusions to fight off the
infection still in her system.
We have created this page
to seek out help with her medical bills as the cost is rapidly
increasing far more than what we can cope with. My sister has stopped
working for now to look after mum. We are managing her daily medications
& other expenses but we need help with more expenses:
ICU - for 4 weeks - $22,500
Doctors' Fee - estimated at $12,500
Thank you for taking the time to read this and we appreciate any help you are able to give us.
