My Dad immigrated to the United States of America for a better life for his wife and kids. He worked his whole life to support his family of 4. There have been times where I remember as a child of my Dad sacrificing birthdays/holidays just to keep a roof right over our heads. He's has always been a selfless person who has always given back to others. Back in 2013, my father had his mitral valve ruptured, and had a mitral valve repair. He was in critical condition but survived. Recently, he was diagnosed for atrial fibrillation, which is an irregular, rapid heart rate that causes poor blood flow. A week ago, he left to the Philippines to visit his Mom who's dealing with Alzheimer. Due to the activities and the environment in the Philippines, his condition got worse. The day he was supposed to fly back to the United States of America, he was rushed to the emergency room because of irregular breathing. The main issue was that he had a congested heart. He is currently under a critical condition and the doctors are telling us that there's a high chance of him not making it. The best recommended treatment for my father is to fly him back to the United States of America because he got diagnosed and his treatments started here. Currently, we're still trying to figure out the situation so my family's main goal is to fly to the Philippines to check his condition. Currently, this urgent trip to Philippines is hard to come by financially. My Mom has always been hardworking her whole life and sacrificed everything for her family. She currently works two jobs to put food on the table. My brother just left to Marine boot camp on 9/14/18. On the other hand, I am working full time and going to school. We need these funds as soon as possible to check my Dad's condition. These funds will help pay for my family's plane tickets to the Philippines and for any medical expenses from the hospital.
