Before they put back his oxygen, I was able to talk to him even just for a moment.
He tried to reach me despite not being able to move to get my attention and said "Why me?".
That short interaction had left me speechless and even more heartbroken.
Our friend, Ross Martin 'RM' Moreno was recently diagnosed with (GBS) Guillain Barré Syndrome, a rare autoimmune disease in which your body's immune system attacks your peripheral nerves causing paralysis. It took four hospitals in a span of two months just to get the right diagnosis. He underwent several lab tests such as MRI for the head and spine, nerve cells test and the most painful of them all is the lumbar tap test.
This journey has lasted long enough to put his family in an emotional fragile state. His whole body is now paralyzed including the right side of his face. The doctors said he already acquired a pulmonary infection which caused him to be put in the ICU at Quirino Memorial Medical Center. The doctors are saying that he needs this treatment that will cost around 75k or more per day for five days.
Together with his immediate family and undying support from his friends, we are desperately asking for financial help and support from you as he needs IV Immunoglobulin vial immediately and continuously. Each vial costs 15,000 pesos and he needs 6 vials per day for 5 days initially plus the rehab he has to go through after this IVIG treatment not to mention the professional fees of doctors and hospital bills.
We’re hoping we can ask for help, any amount will do just so we can start his treatment. We appreciate your help . Also spreading this message is already a big help as it is. Thank you so much for your time and patience reading this.
Ross has always been the person who has the biggest heart for his friends and family and now that he needs us more than ever, there's nothing we won't do to help him get back his life and career.
Please include him in your prayers and those who are also battling with chronic diseases.
Thank you so much.
