My father, Leonardo Alvarez, was admitted in Riverside Medical Center Bacolod since other hospitals did not accept him due to covid situation plus the fact that his immune system is weak. He was intubated in an isolation room because of the condition of his lungs and heart. They had to intubate him to remove phlegm and water from his lungs and put oxygen to stabilize his heartbeat. Our daily bill was almost 100,000 pesos and we need to pay everyday in order to avoid putting his account on hold.
My father has been in and out of the hospital for the past 4 months and due to the current situation we do not have enough sources anymore. I am here in Malaysia seeking for a job and my sister in UAE. We do not know how much will be the future medical expenses needed and we are humbly asking assistance from you. Currently the doctors need to stabilize his lungs and heart before the surgery to remove the tumor from his head.
The doctor said that his prostate is back to normal now but have to monitor his kidney infection
Update: May 21, 2020
My father was already discharged last Friday, May 15, 2020. He developed Tuberculosis and had to do the treatment for six (6) months. However, last Sunday night, May 17, he had a seizure and was rushed to the hospital. He was transferred from hospitals to hospital due to unavailability of ICU room, finally admitted at The Doctors Hospital Inc.
His neurologist advised us that he needs to undergo surgery in 4-5 days to remove the tumor from his head to avoid recurrence of seizure and normalize his mobility. We had exhausted all the funds that we got for the previous hospital bills and now we are facing a new one.
It is with heavy heart to extend our fundraising but we are sincerely asking you to help our father again to regain his health and enjoy life with us. Thank you in advance
