Hello I am Aaron Art Bato, I'm 26 years old and I live in the Philippines. I have an autoimmune disease called Ulcerative Colitis, it's a chronic illness that attacks the colon and produces all sorts of symptoms and might contract into different diseases altogether if left untreated, toxic megacolon or colon cancer to name a few.
This disease worsened when I was 19 years old, it caused me to stop studying and take a break. After a few years of recovering my body was still young so I guess it was able to recover to an extent that I could be somewhat normal again. But when I started working when I was 21 years old it worsened to the point that my body could no longer recover properly and the symptoms of the disease just kept getting worse and worse until I lost my job, and with that my medical card, my medical insurance. Without a job we couldn't afford the food, medications, and more importantly the medical tests that I needed to monitor my condition.
My family has also tried to approach numerous governmental organizations in our country in order to get me free healthcare, but we were out of luck. As my applications were always denied due to us not being indigent enough, or "poor" enough to be qualified for these services. As well as my old test results being "invalid" due to being old. Even though my condition is chronic and it won't just appear or disappear even if we redid the tests..
I'm humbly asking for help from anyone willing to help me spread my fundraiser or even donate some change that we will use to get me the medical attention and proper medications that I need to be able to recover properly and be able to start a life.
