Hi everyone,


My name is Paul De La Torre. I am from Philippines. I am 30 years old. I am the 4th child among 6 siblings. I am a Christian. 

My cause is to raise funds for my Dad's heart operation. My Dad is 67 years old, he is also a Christian in fact all in the family are Christian. When we were still little, my Dad reads to us a chapter or two of the bible every week. He molded us to become good citizens to fear God and be good to everyone around us. We are not wealthy, we get by our lives just enough for us to keep on living. Despite of that, we manage to pull through. Our salaries and wages from our jobs is just enough for us to keep ourselves fed and have a roof under our heads. 


My Dad is no longer working. My Dad is suffering from a heart ailment. His heart is enlarged and on August 2, 2017 - a day we did not expect to happen. I was sleeping in my room when my sister woke me up and told me that my Dad was feeling unwell and he is felt pain in his chest. I was worried on what my Dad was feeling. I asked him if he wanted to go to the hospital. He said, he only wants a check up since we know we do not have a big fund for us to be admitted to the hospital. But then as we went to the hospital, we decided to go directly to the emergency room because my other siblings suggested that it is better, just to make sure it doesn't get any worse.


Upon arriving at the hospital, my dad was checked and went for an X-Ray, blood test, and ECG. It was later found out that the pain my Dad felt was a heart attack. 


Seeing your Dad, suffer, and the thought of possibly losing him is hard. My siblings and my mom, wants to save my Dad's life. We tried our best to ask, and borrow money from the people close to us, and the people we know who can lend us financial help. But as the days passed by, our medical bills keep piling up, and the doctors suggested to have him undergo Angioplasty operation since it was seen that 3 arteries are blocked already. One artery was blocked 100% the other two was blocked 70%. My Dad is having difficulty breathing and the doctor said if this won't be addressed soon. It could be fatal. We managed to borrow some money for one artery (the 100% blocked) to undergo Angioplasty, but the money we borrowed is not enough for the other 2 blocked arteries to be operated upon.


Me and my family are asking from your kind hearts to lend us a helping hand, as we try to give my Dad a second chance at life. He is a very good father. He is responsible. He has wonderful insights about life and living. He is a loving father. He takes good care of all of us. He is loved by many. I only wish he can survive this medical challenge he is facing now, indeed the doctors assured that he can survive after the operation is done. Please help us fund his operation. He needs to have 3 stents of angioplasty operation. We will be very grateful for whatever amount you can give us. It will surely help my Dad. My mom and silbings are struggling to raise funds to pay the ballooning hospital bills and for the future stage 2 procedures. Our Lord will surely repay you as what Proverbs 19:17 says "Whoever is generous to the poor lends to the Lord , and he will repay him for his deed."

No donation is too small and it will mean so much to my family. Thank you very much for your help and time. Please leave me a message whether it is for me or for my Dad. From the bottom of my heart and my family. Thank you very much for your help. We are eternally grateful for the financial assistance. God Bless you always.
