Don is a good and a dear friend who I met while interning. He was one of the captains of our team, as we worked together I’ve realized how good of a person he is, not only as a hardworking leader but a friend. He is thoughtful and kind. He is supportive and positive. Being an intern in a foreign country, often times I would find myself lonely and doubtful of myself but Don was one of the people who was there for me, gave me advice, he treated me so kindly with words and hugs. He was like both a brother and a father not only to me but also for everyone he thought needed a push or a shoulder to lean on.
Today, after greeting him a happy birthday I was heartbroken to learn that he has to undergo a major surgery with no guarantees of good or full recovery. He has internal bleeding, and it’s more grave because where the bleeding originates is yet to be found. My heart breaks even more for him and his son.
Don is a single father whose world is his son. Not only is he burdened by his condition but he is deeply and more worried with what is to become and to whom he will entrust his son to, if (God forbid) anything is to happen to him. He says that he doesn’t want to put his son through this, after past hardships and pain.
I wish I could be there for him to show support and be a friend as he was to me before. For now, I can only humbly ask for your help and prayers. To help him financially for his surgery so that he may be able to rest at home with a mind at ease as he takes a break from work and be able to spend more time with his son. To support and pray for him, that he gains more strength to overcome any sense of helplessness and that he will be able to pull through this hard and trying time.
Your thoughts and help for Don are deeply appreciated. May you have good health and God bless.
