Last month, my father, Nicanor O. Batabat, suffered a stroke that resulted from hypertension and irregular heartbeat and very recently, he suffered from pneumonia. He’s bedridden in the hospital for over a month now. He was our breadwinner but is now considered a PWD (orthopedic). Because of his health issues before having a stroke, he has been unemployed for 7 months. He was a seaman for more than 30 years, and yet we haven’t been able to get any assistance from OWWA because his last payment was on the year 2017. Same goes with his Philhealth as his contributions are already outdated. We also went to PCSO but the hospital bill greatly outweighs the financial assistance. My father has no any form of insurance which made everything more difficult for our family. The hospital bills are swelling and the most difficult part is we have to gather almost P8000 a day for his on-going antibiotic medication for pneumonia that started 4 days ago, but was ceased as we have already run dry of financial capabilities since we have to buy them on our own. Because of this, our family humbly ask this community for financial assistance that would greatly help my family and ultimately prolong my father’s life.
