Comedian Joey Paras is still appealing for monetary donations for his third heart surgery procedure to push through.
The 32-year-old actor-director has been asking for prayers from loved ones and followers, and with the help of some showbiz colleagues, has been trying to raise funds for his angioplasty.
Last June 9, he revealed that he tested negative for COVID-19 but was hospitalized for his heart problem.
In a video shared on his Facebook last June 14, Joey personally asked for more donations to help cover the expensive cost of his heart operation.
“I’m doing this video again just to inform you na naka-admit na ako sa isang ospital sa Maynila, and hindi na lang namin magawa yung procedure because of lack of money, as we all know. I’m here once again begging all of you to please donate whatever you can,” he said.
“Wala pong pilitan ito, kung ano lang po yung gusto ninyong maitulong para sa akin, maging dasal man ‘yan, suporta, panalangin. But most especially, if you wanna give a financial support, it would be better kasi para matuloy na po yung angioplasty ko.
“I just do hope na lahat ng prayer warriors ko diyan, lahat ng followers, fans, friends would pray for me, for my operation na matuloy na. I think it would be better if you will send your donation thru my bank accounts, thru my BPI checking account and my saving account sa BDO, and my GCash account.”
Joey needs P750,000 to finance his angioplasty and other medical expenses.
In the Facebook page Fundraising for Joey Paras’ Heart Surgery, an update on the total donations amounted to 445,620 as of July 12.
Meanwhile, the GoGetFunding fundraiser page has raised a total of ₱67,550 as of writing.
