On Dec 29, 2018 my brother in law –Dino Zaldarriaga, felt an excruciating back pain while driving with his wife to an appointment. The pain was extreme but Dino managed to drive all the way to the nearest hospital. Upon arrival, the Doctor explained that he was suffering from a heart attacked. Two of his left arteries were blocked. He underwent angioplasty surgery as soon as possible. If he would have been in a wrong place and at the wrong time, he would have not made it.
That day should have been the best day for Dino and my sister, Judy. They were supposed to celebrate their 25th wedding anniversary. However, the unexpected had happened and they had to spend their Anniversary and New Year in the hospital.
Dino is a very comical and loving person. His jokes are the life of the party. He has that power to brighten your day even at dullest of moments. He is a great dad to his four children and a very supportive husband to his wife. He works hard to provide for his family through multiple jobs. A very hardworking man who tries his best to keep his family going. However, through this heartbreaking situation, the family has to face a challenging financial roadblock.
Their medical bill is currently at almost 400,000 pesos ($7,000 to $8,000) and still growing with each day. Your kindness (whether in prayers or financially) is deeply appreciated. May God bless you and your family.
As of today, he is still hospitalized recovering from the surgery. My wife setup a GoFundMe to raise money to cover some of the hospital bills, any amount of donation would be greatly appreciated and it will go a long way. I will keep you all updated in the comment section as we hear back from relatives in the Philippines.
Thanks and God bless.
