My name is Sam Gamboa and I’m writing to ask for your help in supporting my father, Maximo Gamboa. He has been battling a thoracic aneurysm, an aortic dissection, a spinal cord injury, and a collapsed lung. He has undergone 2 different open-heart surgeries; one back in 2014 and another this year, 2023. My father is currently unable to stand or walk as his muscles have atrophied and he requires oxygen support 24/7.

Even after his first open-heart surgery, my father has never stopped caring for us. He continued to work to provide for his wife and 4 kids – 2 of which are still completing their college education – until his 67th birthday this year, right before we had to rush him to the hospital again. While it’s been difficult to watch him suffer and struggle with his health, he continues to be strong, resilient, and hopeful of the future in spite of all of the challenges that he has faced.

Our hospital bills including the doctor’s professional fees have amounted to roughly ₱6,500,000. By the grace of God and generous donations from our family and friends, to whom we could never be thankful enough – we have been able to pay off the majority of these hospital bills. Unfortunately, the fight isn’t over yet. In order to avoid the interest rate that would come with signing a promissory note, we resorted to paying for a portion of his bills using a credit card which we’ll need to settle soon.

The total amount we need to raise is ₱2,250,000. Every donation, no matter how small, will be greatly appreciated. Your support will go towards helping us cover the remaining hospital bill on credit and the cost of 1 year’s worth of my father’s medication and supplements, his physical therapy sessions (3 times a week), and a caregiver to watch over him 24/7.

My father has always exemplified love and strength. He has dedicated his life in service to his family, and to others around him through his volunteer work at Gideons International. He has always put the needs of his loved ones before his own and now, I want to do the same for him. Unfortunately, I am unable to do so as I am still completing my final term for college. This is why I decided to create a fundraiser. To ease his mind from worrying about where we might be getting funds and to focus solely on getting healthier and better.

Thank you in advance for your generosity, support, and your prayers. Your contribution will make a difference in my father's life and will be greatly appreciated. I pray that God bless you for how you have been a blessing to us.
