The only way to make his condition better is to undergo a treatment called angioplasty: a procedure to open his narrowed arteries and restore blood flow. You can look it up to see what it does, but it’s PhP350,000($6,500) — an expensive treatment to have, especially in the Philippines. The treatment also requires an angiogram (PhP60,000/$1,100), the imaging technique to diagnose his blood vessels. Both these procedures would take a toll into my uncle’s immediate family, including his 5-year old daughter.

After losing his wife in a tragic accident 13 years ago, I have witnessed my uncle’s hardwork and dedication to ensure that his kids get the proper education they need. His loss took a heavy toll in their lives including losing their family’s business - their main source of income. Despite this, he remained persistent and worked diligently for the family, never running short of his responsibilities. I would like to see him beat this condition and continue to be the strong uncle I know, undefeated.
I really want to help as much as I can and raise money to cover his hospital bills and other medical costs.
Any amount of help will do! I really appreciate it.
