Florante is a 44-year-old father from the Phillippines. He has one daughter, and he volunteers as a driver in his local administrative district.
In 2016, Florante developed a mass in his neck. He was diagnosed with a cyst in his preauricular sinuses and surgery was recommended to treat his condition.
Fortunately, our medical partner, World Surgical Foundation Philippines, is helping Florante receive treatment. On December 9th, he will undergo a parotidectomy, where surgeons will remove his parotid gland, the largest of the salivary glands. Now, he needs help raising $1,323 to fund his procedure and care. After he has recovered, Florante will be able to lead a higher quality and pain-free life.
Florante shared, “this will be the best Christmas gift of my life. I am very grateful to WSFP and Watsi.”
