My father Richard Hicks Jr. has been in the hospital since May 3rd with Septic shock; which is a life-threatening condition that happens when blood pressure drops to a dangerously low level after an infection. This reduces the amount of blood and oxygen that reaches the body's organs, stopping them working properly. Basically his body is fighting itself.
My parents are missionaries in the Philippines and have been here for the past 7 years living in Ozamiz City. They are truly the most selfless people I know.
My dad is a man who worked 2 jobs when I was a child to give me the best education & childhood I could ask for. Who literally has given the shirt off his back to people and has helped so many people not only here but back home without ever asking for anything in return.
They both left their amazing jobs to come and do God's work.
I am asking for help, they have insurance here that will cover only $500 USD. Both doctors here have agreed that they have done all they can do here in Ozamiz & that he needs to go to a more advanced hospital to help get him well. He will need to be flown from Ozamiz to Manila for any further care, including a MRI that can only be done there. The doctors estimate the hospital expenses could be up to $15,000 USD.
This is a life or death situation!
My parents have no idea that I am doing this. All I can ask is for you to help in anyway; If not by donating then by sharing this as well as continued prayer.
I really appreciate all the kind words and messages I have received from everyone regarding my family. Thank you for taking the time to read this.
