Hi everyone!

My name is Ma. Korina Cecilia M. Dela Cruz, 34 years old and a resident of Quezon City Philippines.

The one in the photo is my husband, Michael John Dela Cruz, 33 who recently suffered from a hemorrhagic stroke.

Michael diagnosed with Colon Cancer stage 3B at the age of 19

Michael is a very funny, thoughtful and a very good friend. A lot of people can attest to that. But for me and his kids, he's the best husband and father that anyone could ever wish for.

Me and Michael met when we were in Highschool. We're good friends. After high school, we lived our own lives. He was diagnosed with Colon Cancer stage 3B at the age of 19. He had chemotherapy and radiotherapy sessions and was even told that he might have fewer chances of having a child but luckily he survived cancer.

Me, on the other hand, got pregnant at the age of 19 to a beautiful baby girl. We crossed our paths again year 2009 and had a chance to be close to one another after years of not talking or seeing each other. We fell in love and the rest is history. He loved and raised my daughter as his own and we even had a son year 2012! The miracle of God.

Michael battling with stroke in 2020

October 5, 2020, is the scariest day of my life. After his battle with Colon Cancer last 2006, here we are again facing yet another trial in our lives. I never thought that this will happen to him/us given that he's too young to have a stroke. Not in this timeline. He told me that he's having a headache and he's sweating all over. I told him that we need to go to the hospital asap because what's happening to him is not normal.

At the hospital, they did emergency procedures and was confirmed that he suffered from a stroke. He had a CT scan and found out that there's bleeding on the right side of his brain that caused the left side of his body paralyzed.

I was so scared. I don't know what to do. He needs to be admitted to the ICU but unfortunately, FEU-NRMF cannot accommodate us since they don't have available room for ICU. I decided to transfer him to St. Luke's Medical Center without me even thinking about the expenses that I'll have to pay. I just want the best for him.

Expensive hospital bills that increased day by days

We stayed in the Neurocritical care unit for 4 days. He was closely monitored by his doctors and nurses because it is very important that his blood pressure will not shoot up that might cause more bleeding on his brain. Slowly, he's getting better every day and started his PT/OT. We were transferred to a regular room and continued his PT/OT every day.

Because of this, I am humbly asking for your help with his medical expenses. As of this writing, we are on our 8th day and our running bill is already at Php350,000 (about $7,200) and counting. Professional fees and future rehabilitation is not yet included.

My children miss him so much. I miss him so much. I know it will take time to regain his old strength, but that's fine. What matters to me is that he will be able to walk, drive, play with our children and dogs, and be his old self again.

Any amount out of your heart will go a long way. But most importantly, please include him in your prayers.
