Hi! My name is Mark Badenhop, and I am a 39-year-old resident of the Philippines. I am currently in need of assistance in funding my upcoming Indirect Inguinal Hernia surgery that is scheduled on May 26, 2023. This is the third operation that I will have within a year.

I am a devoted husband to my hardworking spouse and a proud father to a six-year-old daughter. Since 2021, I have been working as a freelancer after leaving my previous job at a private company. In early 2022, I was diagnosed with a Ureteropelvic Junction Obstruction, which was caused by a congenital defect in my left ureter that resulted in my left kidney enlarging. I underwent surgery in two phases, the second of which involved the removal of a stent installed during the first procedure to help with the repair of my ureter.

Now, I have been diagnosed with an Indirect Inguinal Hernia, which is a separate congenital defect that requires open surgery as soon as possible to prevent any further complications from exacerbating my condition.

Unfortunately, the cost of my previous procedures has depleted my savings significantly, and I am still paying off the debts that I have incurred. Apart from that, my family and I will also be moving out of the city by June. That is why I am reaching out for any financial assistance that can be provided to cover my hospital and surgeon's fees as well as post-operation needs (medicine and follow up checkups).

Any amount of help would be greatly appreciated, and I will always be grateful for your assistance. Thank you very much!

Just sharing a partial screenshot of my conversation with my doctor as he sent a few photos of the surgery. Since uploading photos here are limited, and they are graphic, I'll just share this. Still recovering and under medication for the next few days.Thank you again for the support, everyone!

The surgery went well. I was sedated before it started at 12 noon and woke up 4 hours later in the recovery room. However since I was still nauseous from the anesthesia, I stayed a bit more and got discharged around 7pm. Recovery will continue at home. Thank you very

Only less than two days to the operation and I've so far raised half of the target funds both here on GoGetFunding as well as offline through family and friends. Thank you everyone! My family and I are grateful!

One Week Left

Only a week left until my surgery. I'm getting random anxiety attacks once more... same as last year. Please continue to pray for me. I'm looking forward to a safe surgery and speedy recovery.

Surgery Date Confirmed

Just got doctor's orders for the date of the surgery which will be on May 26, 2023. A request for approval for my healthcare provider is attached. However, this alone can only cover about 25-30% of the procedure. I still need a bit of help. Thank you!
