Need your help to finance the hospitalization of my father who is currently in the ICU for 9 days.
I brought my father, Francisco Cortez (60 yrs old), to the hospital for a checkup on the 11th of September 2018 @ the Visayas Community Medical Center where we arrived at night.
He was not able to walk and had a hard time breathing where he was laying down in bed for weeks.
What seemed to be a simple admission, turned out to be worse where my father crashed in the hospital on the next day - early morning.
Due to the critical nature, he was admitted to ICU.
The problems that were found in his body were sepsis, UTI, infection in the lungs, kidney problem.
Medicine would range everyday from 5,000 - 15,000 per day not to mention his bills in the hospital.
After a few days, he was able to fight these diseases however, he got pneumonia.
Until now he has tubes in his nose and mouth to help him breath.
It would have been better if only he did not had an accident from his motorcycle where he skid and crashed on the road while trying to evade a tricycle driver crossing the main road where his right lung was punctured with his very own ribs.
I wont deny that I have the some means to pay the bills because I am a public school teacher, but my salary is not enough and I am deeply buried in loans.
I am afraid that I will loose my father after all the struggle that I and my family did.
I pray that you will help me save my father.
I am just a son who is afraid to loose his only father.
