Here is the Story

I am writing this to humbly ask all of you to help me raise funds for my brother, JL Castillo, to help him hurdle all the current battles he and his family are facing. Let me tell you his story.
We know that this year has been hard for all of us, but the trials and challenges my brother Jhe, and his wife Gaye have been facing drove me to ask your generous hearts for any kind of support to help them get through these toughest of times. As you may have already known, just last week, Jhe and Gaye lost their precious angel Scarlet Heart. They haven't even gotten over the loss of their angel yet, but another trial has suddenly come their way. Just 2 days after they lost Scarlet Heart, we had to rush Jhe to the hospital because he has been experiencing unbearable pain in his stomach region, and he was already starting to turn yellowish in color. For a brief background, it was October of 2019 when Jhe first experienced some pain inside his body. After getting checked, result of tests indicated that everything was normal. The pain he was feeling, however, didn't completely disappear, so just this February, Jhe once again had himself checked. The results were still the same, everything seemed to be normal. Again, the pain he was feeling didn't completely disappear, and Jhe opted to just rest since nothing wrong was detected. When his wife, Gaye, got pregnant, he wasn't able to have himself checked and stayed at home to avoid possibilities of contracting COVID. Jhe also took it upon himself to take care of and closely monitor Gaye due to the fragility of her pregnancy where she was required to stay in bed all the time. Despite all that, they still lost their baby. Jhe is still in the hospital having gone through multiple tests, and just earlier, we received news from his doctors that he needs to undergo surgery to take out a tumor they found along with his gall bladder. In this way, he can still be saved, they said. The outcome of this procedure is not guaranteed, and there is a possibility that he would need to undergo chemotherapy after the operation.
Given these, I am knocking on your kind hearts to please, please help my brother. Help me raise funds for him, because we need a signifant amount to fund the procedure he needs to go through. Any amount will be appreciated, and will be a big help for Jhe and Gaye to lessen their gigantic burden.
Thank you so much, and may God bless you all.
