Bless Arpy With A Miracle

Do you believe in miracles? My youngest brother in the Philippines, Arpy, 51, has been ill for the last two years. He critically needs a kidney transplant. On his almost impossible way to get the needed organ, he has been thrown insurmountable medical and financial challenges. He is undergoing costly dialysis weekly for over a year. Last month, he had tuberculosis because his immunity was low. He has recovered, but because of too much of the same meds, he is now color blind.

Here is the miracle: This holiday season he was rushed to the hospital and almost died of cardiac arrest. He flat-lined but made it after a few days in ICU. He is alive! The doctor said it was extradordinary. It was his second cardiac arrest in a span of a few months. How many people get to live after a cardiac arrest? So, he asks, in all humility:  "What is my purpose in life? " He told God that he was ok with whatever is given to him. God has chosen to let him live.

Now, we need another miracle. The doctor said he can go home for the New Year. Strapped of funds—and even with a promissory note from my elder brother, the Philippine hospital won't release him without paying. So, the bills are mounting by the day.

My family and I are asking your help to finance his current hospital bill, medications, dialysis and testings. Please donate to my brother's cause as soon as you can so he can be released from the hospital.

We also ask for prayers. Big, bold prayers that will let Arpy know that God is listerning and miracles do happen every day. It can start with your help or help from somebody you know. Please send this page to others who may be in the spirit of giving.

Thank you! Thank you for your generosity. Thank you for those who have already donated. May you be rewarded with a miracle of your own. God bless you!

P.S.  This is the first time we are campaigning. If there is another way you want to donate other than how it is done here, please message me. All funds will be sent to a Philippine bank.
