Personal message

Hi, everyone!

I am writing this on behalf of my dad (63), and I know it's not easy for me to write or ask for help, but desperate times require us to reach out.

Two months ago, my dad was diagnosed with Stage 4 heart failure, water in his lungs, and water retention throughout his body due to infection. This has turned our lives upside down. The once happy, playful jokes and helpful hands have given way to bed rest, and our home is no longer filled with laughter but with tears of fear and constant prayers.

Without medical aid, the financial burden has been tough. While my parents had some funds saved up from their work, the situation has become dire. Each doctor's visit brings hope for improvement, but we keep receiving discouraging news. My dad urgently needs to see a Cardiologist/Specialist physician for emerging issues, as his blood pressure remains dangerously low. He also requires an echo test on his heart and a bladder function test due to his past battle with prostate cancer.

To add to the stress, they are also facing the challenge of having to move because their rented townhouse is being sold. My mom is the sole breadwinner, trying to keep the household afloat.

We have been praying for a miracle to help my dad see the specialists he urgently needs without forcing my mom to choose between paying rent, buying food, and affording medical care.

I'm reaching out with a heavy heart, asking for your help in fundraising to get my dad the medical attention he urgently requires.

I'm reaching out on behalf of my dad (63) who has been diagnosed with Stage 4 heart failure and other health issues. We're in a tough financial situation, with no medical aid and the need to see specialists urgently. My mom is the sole provider, and they also need to move due to their rented townhouse being sold. We're asking for help with fundraising to cover medical expenses and the cost of relocating. Your support would mean the world to us.
