A Grandpa's Heart

My name is Jong (Cef) Hernani and on behalf of Bim's and Karen's brothers and sisters in Christ, we are hoping to raise funds for their father Marcos Lavapie,who needs an open heart surgery.

Tito Marcos put his comfortable life in the Phillipines on hold to help the young couple raise their 3 month old daughter and a 16 month old son even for a very short duration. His love for his grandchildren is undeniable. Two nights ago he suffered a major heart attack and had to be air- lifted to Edmonton. An open heart bypass is a must. Due to limited or lack of health insurance and Karen on maternity leave,the family is in dire need of financial assistance.

The amount seems to be an unclimable mountain,but every climb begins with a step. Your donation regardless of the amount brings us a step closer to our goal. Bim and Karen truly deserves this help as they would do the same plus more for a friend in need without hesitation.

We thank you in advance and God Bless us all!
