Please keep ROVER and his wife in your thoughts and prayers.

Rover was asking for help quite recently for getting to (and from) the supermarket in Consolacion.  I offered assistance in my SUV which he was grateful for, but eventually got assistance from another member (I think it was Bill?).

 

My offer still stands of course.  Best of luck.

Is this what the emergency assistance fund was created for?

I was trying to figure out but thats around 530,000 pesos approx plus all the extras....not even sure a whip round donation would be enough, membership wise.....open to any suggestions but prepared to donate.....

 

Hope all goes well for both of them...

I just went through this in 2012. About the same amount. Insurance only usd2k. The rest was garnered from legal lenders here at 10% and all of our jewelry to pawns at 3%. Was not expected to live. Still paying on pawns. Our prayers are with them.

Definitely prayers already sent up for them, and will continue to do so. Also, willing to donate some financial help.

One of the BIG BIG reasons we are leaving here is just this kind of situation.

If someone locally (in or around Cebu City) would be willing to receive donations, and send them on to ROVER, I am sure it would be appreciated.

 

Anyone? Maybe someone who lives relatively close by? Or, someone who may help provide transportation? 

I just think it would be a lot easier than to send the funds to me, thus causing fees to be deducted, prior to sending them back to the Philippines?

Don't they have PhilHealth?  It's not the greatest, but it's cheap and would pick up a good bit of the costs in this case.

heart surgery is always scary

 

my brother was born with a defective aortic valve .. they waited till he was in his 40's.. putting it off as long as possible.. then replaced it with a artificial valve..

 

they gave him the choice of a valve from a pig which they said would eventually have to be replaced and a man made valve which they said would likely outlive him.. he chose man made..

 

so far so good .. he did have to get use to hearing the click with each heartbeat ..in a very quiet room especially if he opens his mouth others can hear it too

 

make sure to stick with the physical therapy afterwards.. it's a very important part of the whole process

Can someone in Cebu help Rover to start a PayPal account? Or can someone with a PayPal account accept funds to be forwarded to him?

After the fact, but anyone who doesn't have Philhealth coverage is making a big mistake.  For 2400 pesos a year Philhealth will cover a large portion of your hospital bill and is available to anyone, even foreigners here on a tourist visa (I know because they gave me a policy).  I sure hope Rover's wife is covered because it will help substantially.

Roy is too shaky at the moment to be clear on this.

I am telling you that she has Philhealth and they only pay for certain basic tests, a bed on the ward at P500 per day and her meals.

The hospital is giving her 10% off all meds as approved by them.

Any donations should be sent to Billing under the name of Cathy A. Ross at Vicente Sotto and once they have recieved P200,000.00 they have agreed to do the surgery, but they say we have to move fast on this.

 

Addendum; it will still cost a minimum of P400,000.00 for the surgery and possibly as much as P500,000.00.

 

So far Knights of Columbus has refused to help, out local Liloan assistance agreed to pay approximately P2,000.00 which doesn't sound like much, but we can all start contacting other charities online if anyone really wants to help.

I was able to have Barangay Clearance set up for her, so if any charity needs it, I can e-mail a copy to you.

Just PM me with your e-mail address and I will be happy to forward the copy that way and it can be printed out if necessary.

Guys, I have purposely stayed away from posting anything here cause I feel like shit.....not just because I can't take care of my own wife but because some of you have already been helpful what with rides to the SM for me and my wife so that we could at least be out of the house once in a while together.......and because of the help given for me to get a wheel chair......another friend put a post on his FB.....and I am so ashamed and embarrassed after reading some of the expats comments...not necessarily about me but about ANY EXPAT who comes here with out a lot of money and a plan for emergencies and such......

 

 

She needs someone who can be pushy with the staff to stay with her, you know the WATCHER is the one that is suppose to take care of them....I CANT EVEN GO TO VISIT BECAUSE SHE IS ON THE UPPER FLOOR AND I CAN'T GET UP THERE, AND ON TOP OF THAT I WAS TOLD WITH MY SIZE AND THE WHEEL CHAIR   THEY DON'T WANT ME THERE AS A WATCHER CAUSE I AM IN THE WAY AND CAN'T DO ANYTHING FOR HER ANYWAY....

 

 

I thank all who have helped, helping, trying to help and considering it.

I can only imagine how you feel, man. But, no one, not one member has stated anything negatively toward you or her. I think I speak for everyone here, when I say we all want the best for both of you.

 

I know that Paul and I didn't say they had....I was referring to expats on other places where someone else has posted about us asking for assistants and prayers................

 

They guys on here and I may not see eye to eye and a lot of Bull is slung by all of us but I have yet to see anyone on here degrade someone who is in real need....................

If you can't take your money to Sotto, jtmwatchbiz, also known as Fred the watch man has graciously offered to let you transfer funds to his BDO account and he will take it in for you.

Thanks to those who donated so far, we have a long ways to go, but I am hoping we can get there.
