Please Help my Father, Mario Velasco win his fight against a Stage 4 Lung Cancer.

My father, 61, had a stroke February 15 and was rush to Nuestro Senior Sto. Nino hospital in Bayambang, Pangasinan. After few laboratory tests, CT Scan, X-ray and MRI he was diagnosed and declared with a Stage 4 Lung Cancer last February 16, 2019. We did not go under prescribed medication as requested by my father because he was scared about the possible complications of going through chemotherapy or radiotherapy. We decided to discharged father Ferbuary 21 and do home medication until April 16 came.

April 16 was the hardest part of this challenge we are going through. My father had a difficulty of breathing so we had to rushed him to the hospital again. This time at Dr. Marcelo M. Chan Memorial Hospital Inc. My father had pleural effusion ( water accumulation in the lungs ) causing his lungs to not properly work and made it hard for him to worked. He underwent thoracostomy ( insertion of tube in chest to drain water ). Since April 16 until today, 10th day the tube is still connected in his chest draining water from it.

Our hospital bill had reached over a 100,000php and the hospital won't give us any medicines anymore without paying cash unless we make a down payment of a 40,000 in minimum. We are in dire need of financial help as there are medicines needed that we cannot provide since we have to pay in cash and all cash on hand has been consumed.

We are begging everyone for help and please help my father win his fight.

There is no amount big or small as every assistance will go a very long way. On top of this, please help with prayers as well.

We thank you all so much.
