Recently, my 78 year old father passed away. On the 25th Feb 2019, he died while recovering in ICU after a major surgery (Esophagectomy). He had succumbed to multiple organ failures, multiple infections and septic shock. My father had been in hospital from 12th December 2018 until his death on the 25th February 2019.
My siblings and I had gathered and paid up for his Surgery, accommodation, medication and all other bits and bobs while admitted in the ICU ward for 3 months, it wasn't cheap nor did my father have medical insurance due to the fact at his age he is considered high risk.
My father had a dormant company, that being said it had a few overdue debts owed, my mother had been a sleeping partner for many years for the company, and not in an executive position. My mother is now liable to pay off my fathers debts. It has been a tricky few months, as we have paid my dads hospital stay and we must work doubly hard to raise funds, so that mother is not affected by this ongoing debt.
The hospital bills weren't cheap, whatever savings us siblings had most of it had gone to my fathers health bill.
Emotional times for my mother, as she has lost her life long partner, her best friend and husband we are trying our best to raise funds anyway possible so we can resolve the issue and let my mother enjoy the rest of her life in peace.
To all kind hearts out there, we would appreciate your help and we'd be so grateful and thankful.
(Picture above was the last one of my father and mother together on the day of his operation 12.12.2018)
The donations would be used for the debt to be paid and also for my mums knee replacement, which includes surgery, ward, medication, 24hour nursing care outside the hospital.
