In July 11th, my dad was admitted in the hospital after complaining about a fever and severe stomach pain. After days in the hospital, the doctors found a tumor in his liver. The doctors recommended no possible treatment and my family's wish is to get a second opinion from specialists in the Philippines and my dad would like to retire back in his province within this week.
My older sister, the only person at this moment who has a job in the family, earns less than 1200 Euros a month and stretched to the limit when it comes to expenses. As my dad was in between jobs from the last couple of months, he has no form of health insurance to subsidize the cost of health care. The medical bills are around 2600 Euros now (~10K QR), increasing at a rate of 100 Euros/day (400 QR). With all of these costs, my family risks going down on serious debt if we don't find an alternative way to cover these costs.
The funds donated in this campaign will cover the costs of medical care already incurred and the projected cost for the next three months, while also paying for the expenses to make my dad's wish of going back to his province come true. This medical fund will also help open more options for our family in considering other possible sources of health care.
My dad supported me and my family in all the ways possible for as long as I can remember. I will not be the person I am today without any of his sacrifices. To every bit of detail, my dad was there for me. He moved to Qatar so me and my family will have a better shot at life; he was there picking and dropping me off to all the extra math classes I needed to get accepted to Carnegie Mellon twice a week for 3 years; and he supported me unconditionally to pursue my dream of completing a Masters degree abroad.
He has always been my number one supporter and this time I want to do every single thing possible that I can to support him too. Please consider donating and sharing this crowdfunding page to your network of friends and family as every little bit helps.
If 500 to 700 people could read our page and contribute around 15-20 Euros (60-80 QR) each, around a price of a meal, we will be able to reach our goal in no time. Even smaller amounts can go a long way and can help our family substantially. Besides donations, prayers are also welcome.
If the banking options on the website do not work for you, please contact me and I will be happy to find an alternative solution via bank transfer or PayPal.
