it broke my heart when one day my mom said she wants to see again. That she wants to take care of my younger brother who is a special child. And she also wants to see the beauty of this world again.
My mother's name is VILMA L. GOC-ONG, 50 years old, from Bansalan, Davao del Sur. She is diagnosed with END STAGE RENAL DISEASE secondary to Diabetic Nephropathy. I know a lot of people barely understand medical terms (that's including me). To make it simple, my mom is a dialysis patient. She has a diabetes for 20+ years. The doctor said that only 6% of my mom's kidney is functioning and that she needs to undergo dialysis treatment twice a week. It is really hard for us to sustain my mom's expenses because other than twice a week dialysis treatment that we pay P500 per session + P850 for epoitin (an injection for dialysis patient), she also have a daily maintenance for diabetes and hypertension.
There are days that our family only eat once or twice a day because we need to prioritize my mother's medication. As you all know, once you are a dialysis patient you can't skip even just a single one session else you will die.
My mom is not able to see and walk anymore. Because of my mother's diabetes for 20+ years, it already damaged her kidney. Then her feet, then her eyes. She is now completely blind. Her right eye is 100% damaged and the doctor said they can't do anything about her right eye anymore but my mother's left eye can still be fixed. The last time we went to Ophthalmology the doctor said that my mother needs to undergo eye surgery/operation. As far as i understand (based on my mother's words) she needs an eye lens transplant which basically cost us a huge amount of money. The doctor said for Professional Fee we basically need P20,000 excluding the hospital bills and other medicines and expenses. based on my calculations we need around P50,000 for my mom's eye operation. This is the main reason why I am making this fundraising. The rest of the amount will go to my mother's weekly dialysis treatment (P500 dialysis treatment + P850 epoitin) 2 x week and daily maintenance.
I would like to reach all the people out there to please help us. Any amount will be wholeheartedly appreciated.
thank you so much.
