Save My Father From Pancreatitis

My father Ferdinand Marquez, was experiencing stomach pains that started off as an uncomfortable nuisance, however as time went on the pain gradually turned into a sharp piercing pain that came in waves. He went to Doctor, thinking he was just going to have a stomach virus or something less serious. He was prescribed with anti-pain medicine but to no avail, the pain went on.  My parents went to a reunion and towards the last day of their trip, my father started experiencing pain beyond his capabilities. He also started to have a hard time breathing and when it was time for me to pick him up at the airport, the man I saw was not my father, but a fragile version of himself that I could not bear to see.  His breathing had an irregular rhythm to it and I knew something was wrong.  When we got home my father was unable to go up the stairs by himself so I carried him to their bedroom upstairs. The very next morning I woke up and my father was gone. My mother rushed him to the Hospital because he can no longer bear the pain and lack of oxygen. My father was diagnosed with Pancreatitis which is the inflammation of his pancreas which pushed up his other organs causing him to have a hard time breathing. His kidneys were also not functioning properly, so he was put on dialysis. My family has been blessed by God every day despite the financial hurdles that we face HELP! Please and Thank You! and God Bless You!


Sincerely,

His Loving Family (Rose Marie, Frances, Florence, and Fredric)
