- Raymund Pontero, a 19-year-old father, and his wife Floriza Distor, 26, have taken to Facebook to ask for help for their 4-month-old baby, Baby Akiro
- In his post, the father detailed the doctor's diagnosis on his baby, and has requested for help with the hospital needs including the medication
- He also said that his son was already supposed to be discharged from the hospital a month ago but due to financial constraints, the family is unable to do anything but ask for help
Raymund Pontero, a 19-year old father from Olongapo City took to Facebook to beg for assistance with his son, Baby Akiro's hospital bills.
According to Pontero's post, his son was diagnosed of Necrotizing Fasciitis, better known as "flesh-eating" bacteria, and other infections including petronitis and omphalitis.
He also mentioned in his post that Baby Akiro has already gone through an operation at a private facility, Our Lady Of Lourdes International Medical Center, as referred by a certain Dr. Langit, but as Baby Akiro's account has already been put on hold, and the father terminated from his work, the family had a hard time providing for Baby Akiro's hospital needs.
The family had received help for the baby's immediate needs and in an earlier post, Baby Akiro has already made observable recovery since the surgery. He has gained weight and now looks healthier.
It has been almost three months since his son was confined and almost one month since the baby was supposedly been discharged from the hospital but as the family can't afford to pay for the hospital bills, they are unable to request for the baby's release papers and are once again asking those whose generous hearts would heed their call for help.
