Jonell passed out while working & was rushed to the hospital early morning of May 20, 2015. He was pronounced dead on arrival but was resuscitated back to life. It was a massive stroke placing him in coma for 11 days.
The family and friends of Jonell continuously uttered prayers and God performed a miracle by restoring his life. He stayed in ICU for almost a month and it was only after another month before he was allowed to go home.
Going home was not that easy because the bills, medication and special needs of Jonell can't be ignored. It was another round of faith being tested. Looking back at it now, we really don't know how but God provided the huge amount needed to cover his hospital bills. It was another miracle of God.
It was much harder when he was brought home. The stroke caused Jonell to be paralyzed and he would need to learn the basics again: speaking, eating, sitting, standing etc. Continuous therapy is needed but financially is is a struggle. His medication, food and needs is a handful already.
Jonell is a husband and a father of a lovely 4 y/o girl and intelligent 9 y/oz son. He is the breadwinner of the family before he had a stroke. Claire, his wife, held on to God's promises and faithfulness. Aside from taking care of her husband, she also needed to look after their son and daughter. She is now working to provide for the needs of the family. However, her salary is not enough to provide for Jonell's medication.
This is the reason I am putting up a fundraising appeal to sustain his medication and start his therapy again. Every small effort will help Jonell and his family through their ordeal. I would like to appeal to those with generous heart, to help my friend recover and be able to live his life again. I may not be able to repay you with your help and prayers but I know God will be rewarding you for helping a brother in need. Thank you.
