     Agapito Vergara or Papa Bobet, as known to most of his relatives, is a husband and a father to two sons. He was diagnosed with T-Cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia last May 2, 2014 and is in desperate need of help in paying for chemotheraphy.

     My father spent most of his life working for our family. Year 2012, he suffered a mild stroke that made him unable to continue working as a security guard. I, his eldest son who was already working then, became the breadwinner of the family. April of this year, my father became sickly and was brought to the hospital. There he spent a week and a number of tests before his diagnosis was confirmed. The hospital bills piled up but we were able to get him healthy enough to get his first set of treatment and discharged from the hospital, settling the bill using my credit cards.

     Now, he continues to be sickly and easily infected because of his condition and had been brought back to the hospital. There, he was diagnosed with pneumonia which needs to be cured before continuing his chemo. We are now running out of funds. Our savings had been used up and my income is not enough to support my family and his treatment. We have received help from close friends and colleagues which we are trully grateful. However, the hospital bill continues to pile up and we badly need help.

     Papa Bobet has always been a good man, a good husband and a great father. The sight of him in the hospital bed crushes my heart. I am doing everything I can to keep him fighting. Please help us on this.

     My family and I will greatly appreciate anything you can spare. No matter how large or small the amount is, it will add up and make a huge difference for us.
