Our youngest brother Merck Osena suffered a stroke last August 24, 2017. We rushed him to the hospital at 2AM and have undergone 2 neurosurgical operations within his first 24 hours. The first operation was to remove the blood clot and the second one is to stop the bleeding and relieve pressure in his brain (craniectomy).
Currently he is recovering, but his right side is immobile/weak and some of his cognitive functions are affected. His doctors are very optimistic about his full recovery as he is relatively young (36 years old) and does not have any vices. The next step for his recovery is for him to undergo regular physical and occupational therapy sessions. Merck himself is very responsive and eager to get his strength back.
However, the hospitalization costs and procedures have all drained his and the family's savings, mainly due to the 2 neurosurgical operations, our long stay in the ICU and the doctor's professional fees. Even though he has a health card, it is not enough to cover his hospital bills. The whole family is helping each other with the hospital expenses but our pooled funds is still short to cover all.
Our family is knocking on your generous hearts to help us with Merck's hospitalization, healing and recovery. Your kindness will make a lot of difference for the life of our dearest brother. Merck's has a lot to live for, the love of his family, supportive friends, a great job, and a wonderful future.
Thank you and God bless!
