Dear Brothers and Sisters,
Greetings of peace!
We, sisters by blood and in faith - Jennie Botor-Dominguiano, Tina Botor-Gonzales, and Jona Botor-Quita are disciples of ICOC Philippines for 21 years. We would like to humbly ask for your help.
Last August 05, 2021, our 74-year-old father, Pedrito "Pete" Botor, had Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm Surgery at the Philippine Heart Center. He's still being closely monitored at the ICU since the surgery due to the rise of different complications. After his AAA surgery, he had 3 additional surgeries because of internal bleeding and blood clots. He's also had kidney impairment which requires him to undergo dialysis almost everyday. (He never had dialysis before this event.) He also developed Pneumonia and severe blood infection.
A month ago, our family got together virtually to talk about and prepare for our father's then upcoming AAA Surgery. By God's grace and provision, each of us was able to pledge financially and helped our father complete the funds for the surgery package that the doctors offered. But due to additional medical procedures, costly medicines, and extended hospital stay, our medical bills have been accumulating and is now over PHP1,510,835.67 as of September 03, 2021. We have also been going to different government agencies for support and some have responded with help. We had also created a fundraiser through social media but the donations given by relatives, friends and some government agencies have been quickly depleted due to expensive cost of needed medicines, and medical examinations day by day. We are pleading on your good hearts to help us raise additional funds for our father's ongoing medical costs. We will appreciate any amount coming from your generous hearts to help extend our father's life, that he would still have a chance to come to know the wholeness of God's love and Jesus, His Savior. Thank you so much for your support!
