English is not my first language so I apologize for my grammar mistakes. I will try my best to explain why I desperately need and asking for a donation.
My dad has diabetes. He was diagnosed since 2016 and because of this he need to take maintenance medicines for his blood sugar. Since then he started losing weight and have a problem with his vision as well. Fast forward to 2019, this was the time that he got a consultation for his eyes and they did some test on him. Turns out that his eyes have blood in it, in his retina. And he needed to undergo a surgery to remove the blood from his eyes. He was supposed to have an eye operation in March 2020 but due to Pandemic he was rescheduled after a year. His eyesight already deteriorated when his first operation happened. His first operation was on his left eye, second they removed a cataract on his right eye, they waited for the cataract operation to heal before they made an operation for his right eye again to remove the blood, the last operation was removing the silicone oil from his left eye. My dad had 4 operations in total for his eyes, in different months in 2021. Last operation that he needs is silicone oil removal on his right eye You can only imagine how many times we went in and out of hospital paying bills after bills for medicines and operations.
Aside from that my dad is only 62 years old but he looks way older than his age and he’s too weak. He already have trouble walking and have other medical conditions.
He couldn’t walk on his own because of this. He needs to hold someone’s shoulder in front of him to avoid bumping or falling face down. It’s actually really sad seeing my dad who’s used to be strong become dependent in order for him to move around. My mom totally became his eyes as you can see from the picture I uploaded. There are many times that people assume that my mom is my dad’s daughter when in fact my mom is two months older than my dad.
The reason why I’m asking for this is because my dad is still waiting for his last eye surgery to remove the silicone oil on his eyes. It’s making him uncomfortable. Due to financial struggles we couldn’t afford to pay for it. As I’ve mentioned earlier he have other conditions and he is taking a maintenance medicine as well. He’s also having a bladder problem and prostate enlargement.
Me and mom have been the one accompanying my dad through all of his check ups, test, and operations. I can see how tired my dad is. My dad may not be a perfect father but he did everything to raise me and my siblings well. This is my first time asking a stranger for help and I never imagined I would ever post something like this but I am desperate and we are struggling.
I wish my dad’s eyesight becomes better and hopefully it’s not too late for him to see the beauty of the world. It breaks my heart whenever I see a hint of sadness from him for the loss of his eyesight.
I wish someone can help us raise this amount for his operation. Even less than that is already a big help for us.
I really thank you and appreciate for even reading this message. I’m sorry if I couldn’t express myself well. This is my first time writing this kind of message.
Thank you so much!
