Med Bills & Surgery for My Father-in-law

I often just ask for prayers, but this sudden and unexpected medical bill and need for surgery led me to this website. It is very difficult for me and my wife to be far away but this is the best way we can think of helping.

My father-in-law is currently confined in a hospital in Manila. He has started dialysis, undergone a quadruple bypass, two amputations, and several hospitalizations in the past couple of years. Two nights ago, he was brought to the ER and admitted to the Neuro ICU for a stroke. Just today, the doctor has advised an urgent surgery for additonal amputation above the knee to prevent infection of the blood.

We are tapping on the kindness and generosity of family, friends, and anyone with a kind heart to help cover medical bills as medical insurance in the Philippines is almost nonexistent. All medical expenses such as hospitalizations, thrice a week dialysis, and maintenance medications are paid out-of-pocket, on the spot.

Although my goal does not cover the entire bill, it will be a significant addition towards the cost of the surgery that is urgently needed. 

My family thanks you for all your prayers and assistance in our time of need. Every little bit is much appreciated and will go a long way. We have faith that God always provides through the kindness of people. 

God Bless.
