Hello, my name is Aldrian Ramos. I'm doing this campaign for my mother, Marianne Ramos Alonzo, who is now in the intensive care unit at Jose Reyes Memorial Hospital in Manila.

My family and I humbly request your kind help and support towards my mother's financial and medical needs so she can fully recover from her current condition.

She had been having bad headaches on and off for quite some time, especially whenever her blood pressure climbed. She would ignore it most of the time since the discomfort would go away.

But on 14th March, 2023 she had experienced an unusual headache and breathing difficulties. Her blood pressure was also too high. She took some pain medication to help with the discomfort. My grandmother persisted on taking her to the clinic because the pain was not totally relieved. The doctor recommended a CT scan to confirm the diagnosis. She had to wait a few days because the fee was very costly. When she had the CT scan, the doctor claimed the results were normal, so she was given some standard pain medicines and told to rest completely.

For a few days, the pain subsided, and she was becoming okay. However, on the 24th of March, after eating lunch, she falls asleep. When my younger brother tried to wake her up as someone was looking for her, she was unable to be awakened. My grandmother tried everything she could to resuscitate her. Her body was cold already. As soon as she gained consciousness, they immediately got the help of our barangay ambulance and rushed her to the provincial hospital in Malolos, Bulacan.

The doctor examined her and recommended another CT scan. The doctor diagnosed that she had a blood clot on her brain, which needed to be removed right away. Unfortunately, the hospital doesn’t have the facility to do the procedure. She was endorsed to be immediately transferred to Jose Reyes Memorial Hospital in Manila since the hospital has the facility and a neurosurgeon.

The following day, 25th March she was transferred. The doctor had also diagnosed that, aside from the clot, she also had hydrocephalus and must be scheduled immediately for surgery to prevent the aneurysm from rupturing. The doctors tried if it can be cured by medicine for few days as the cost of the surgical clip alone will roughly cost Php50,000 over. The price excludes other tools to be used and her medicines, before, during and after the surgery. Not to mention the daily food and transport expenses from the house in Bulacan to the hospital in Manila.

We are very thankful that my grandaunt, and aunt and her friend have contributed to have the surgery be performed soonest. My mother had the surgery on April 7th. It was successful, but she is still being monitored in the intensive care unit.

The expenses don’t end after she had the operation. She has tons of medicines to buy, she will be needing therapy until she’s fully recovered. My relatives cannot always give financial support as they themselves have several financial obligations. My step dad salary as a security guard isn’t enough to cover all these expenses. I just started working as a call centre agent and we just live with my aunts’ (my mother’s sister) house.

Please help us, please help my mom to recover and be back to normal. We want her to live longer. We love her so much.
