My dad has always been my superman.
I’ve always been a daddy’s girl ever since I was a kid. I used to be really excited when my mom would tell me that my dad is going home. (He’s a foreigner, he doesn’t reside in the Philippines because his work requires him to travel.) My first heartbreak happened early 2006. My dad had a different family somewhere else. He’s been distant since that happened because things were bad with my mom and him. I never really understood why he had to do that because I was young when it all happened, I just knew I lost a father that day. I kept in touch, when he would visit, I would always make time to catch up with him no matter where I was or what I was busy with.
Close to 13 years later, my uncle reached out to me. My dads been in an accident from one of his travels. He’s old but he can’t seem to stop working. He’s been robbed in one of the airports at Madagascar and was badly hurt. He was diagnosed with diabetes and Alzheimer's when the doctors checked him. He was badly hurt with a lot of bruising and is recommended to rest because of his age. He was close to dying at this point. He’s had severe diarrhea and brain trauma. My uncle reached out to the other family but they refused to help thats why he reached out to me.
I’m a lot older now, and I understand why certain things had to happen. My dad needs to come home. He needs therapy. He is now living in a nursing home by himself and that crushes my heart every single day. He does not have any insurance, his other wife took his money and did not leave anything for him.
I have set aside my savings but it fell short. I am asking for any donation to help out with his therapy. I am also looking into bringing him home. I am tired of people using him just because he is a foreigner and is “supposed to be rich”. He can also need help.
I have created a fundraiser selling custom thermal mugs on facebook, I hope you guys can drop by and purchase one. I’ve set this page up for donations but you may feel free to add me: Nicole David on FB for those who want to donate but do not have a paypal account. I have a BDO and a Metrobank account.
I want my dad to come home, I hope you guys can help me make that happen.
