Support my Mother and Sister's Battle with Covid-19 in the Philippines

$3,420 of $60,000 goal
Given by 45 generous donors in 7 weeks

Cancer stricken mom and her daughter tested positive for COVID-19 in the Philippines. It is now a race of time for them to survive.

We all know by now that COVID-19 virus can infect anyone it came contact with. Unfortunately, my mother and my sister are now included in the growing list of people victimized by this virus.

At the same time, my mother is still battling ovarian cancer. My mother Lolita is a true fighter and fighting both cancer and COVID-19 simultaneously and I know in my heart that she will win both battles.

Both my mom and my sister are hospitalized in the Philippines starting 26 July, with my sister in moderate condition and my mom in severe condition. My sister received medications and is getting better now, but she is not out of the woods yet. Meanwhile, my mom is currently in high-flow oxygen still grasping for air as her lungs is full of fluids.

Mom's current hospital bill is already at $30,000~.

I am here as a son and a brother to ask for anyone’s support in prayers and help financially.

Our family will highly appreciate any support given to us.

Any amount extra from this fund raising will be given to other covid-19 victims in the Philippines.

Marvin Garcia's involvement (page creator)

I am the son and I am 8077kms away from them. I am trying my very best to support them financially, but due to the amount needed. I am trying to gather funds for them. Anything extra would be donated to other covid-19 victims in the Philippines.

Use of funds

The funds will be primarily used for the medical expenses of my mom and my sister. Any extra would be donated to other COVID-19 victims in the Philippines.

And they are officially discharged!

My mom and sister are now back home and resting.

Thank you all for your support and prayers. This journey could not be easier without your help. I could not thank you all enough. Godbless.


Our final combined bill reached Php1.7M(NZD 47,828.48).

After deducting all the discounts(PhilHealth, Senior Citizen, Health Card), we paid Php922,596(NZD 25963.10) in cash. With all your help, we manage to raise around NZD9,000~ hence we only needed to pay the difference.

Again, thank you so much for all your help.
