Help Papa Joe

Joe Polancos, “Papa Joe” as he loves to be called, or Lolo (grandfather), is a man with a great love for Frank Sinatra, liempo (grilled pork belly) and God. He is a man who can never turn down an offer to sing; a man who worked tirelessly for many years providing for his family; and a man who spearheaded the senior’s ministry in the Quezon City sector and played a big part in making it what it is today.

Unfortunately, I regret to report that Papa Joe suffered his fifth stroke this past weekend and is currently recovering at St. Luke's Hospital in Quezon City, Philippines. He is expected to have a 4-5 day stay and is in the process of doing physical therapy.

Since the family has received inquiries about how to help, we decided to start this GoFundMe page for those who wish to send their moral, spiritual, emotional, or financial support. Donations are certainly a huge help with all the pending medical expenses, but just prayers or words of encouragement also mean a lot.

Please feel free to share this with whomever you feel would be interested. A big thank you in advance for your support of any form.
