₱101,000Donated So Far
We kindly request your assistance in supporting Paul Kam, a 38-year-old Filipino father of four, currently in critical condition at The Medical City in Ortigas, Philippines. Paul was admitted to Qualimed Hospital on May 12th due to a severe headache and was diagnosed with a ruptured brain stem AV malformation. Following a ventriculostomy EVD procedure, his condition worsened, and he was transferred to The Medical City on May 16th. An angiography revealed a Dural Fistula, which was successfully treated. However, Paul remains in the ICU, and the medical team is investigating the cause of his fever. They are considering another ventriculostomy procedure to address hydrocephalus and intraventricular hemorrhage. Your generous donation can make a significant difference in Paul's ongoing treatment and help save his life. Please donate and support his recovery.
Nais naming humiling ng tulong para kay Paul Kam, isang 38-anyos na ama ng apat na bata at Filipino, na kasalukuyang nasa malubhang kalagayan sa The Medical City sa Ortigas, Pilipinas. Nalagay si Paul sa Qualimed Hospital noong ika-12 ng Mayo dahil sa malubhang sakit ng ulo at natuklasan na mayroon siyang ruptured brain stem AV malformation. Pagkatapos ng ventriculostomy EVD na proseso, mas lumala ang kanyang kalagayan, kaya siya inilipat sa The Medical City noong ika-16 ng Mayo. Sa angiography, natuklasan na may Dural Fistula si Paul, at matagumpay na nasuri ito. Gayunman, nananatili si Paul sa ICU at iniimbestigahan ng medikal na koponan ang sanhi ng kanyang lagnat. Pinag-iisipan nilang gawin ang isa pang ventriculostomy procedure upang malunasan ang hydrocephalus at intraventricular hemorrhage. Ang inyong malugod na donasyon ay makakagawa ng malaking pagkakaiba sa patuloy na paggamot ni Paul at makatulong sa kanyang paggaling. Mangyaring mag-donate at suportahan ang kanyang paghilom.
