Good day, I hope this reaches you well. I am from the Philippines. I never knew about Guillain Barre Syndrome -GBS until one of my relatives was hit by the disease. GBS is a very rare disease in which the body's immune system strikes the part of the peripheral nervous system, which then results to intense weakness and paralysis. This disorder can worsen and can be life threatening for it potentially interferes breathing and so is considered a medical emergency.
There is no known cause and cure for GBS. However, there are therapies and treatment that lessen the severity of the illness and accelerate the recovery of the patient.
As I was led to this online presence, I know that my faith and spirit has led me to the right direction. It inspires me to see such amazing will and way to help the needy and the weak. It makes us believe that we will never be alone in any fight.
I am a normal citizen who wanted to help a fellow by all means. John Carlo is just 17 years old and has a very promising future. He wanted to become a doctor. He was so full of life until about three months ago. Such disease has shocked every one of us. His parents are hardworking farmers in a small town here in Ilocos Sur, and surely they cannot afford costly treatments for this terrifying disease, but far more cannot afford to lose their only son. So here we are, in all humility, begging you and everyone else to help us in this fight for John Carlo. We have been knocking the golden hearts of so many people for this journey. We are in deep gratitude for all of those who have sent their love and assistance. Yet, we need more hands to be with us. We pray that you will notice us so you can extend some financial help for the ongoing recovery of John Carlo.We still have to pay for his medicines, ICU fees, hospital fees, examinations, doctors' fees and therapy, that has now amounted to nearly Php 2,000,000.00 (and is still increasing up to date) For one person, this amount is impossible but for millions of people working hand in hand, this is nothing. Your Php 1.00 can surely save a life.
More importantly, we ask for inspiration, strength and faith.
Your prayers will be much more appreciated than anything else. I know God will use you to send His healing powers to John Carlo. Thank you and more good health for everyone.
