In early August Jojo suffered from a severe stomach ache and was admitted to the hospital and diagnosed with sub-acute intestinal obstruction and treated for two weeks before being released.
He was prescribed IV antibiotics, oral medications and received a nasogastric aspiration through a nose tube to remove gastrointestinal secretions and swallowed air.
Jojo is differently-abled and his parents are elderly and are not able to work. He has a brother who is a daily wage earner and is married with two children. The family lives together and survives with sponsorship funds and the income brought in by his brother, but they have no savings or extra funds to pay Jojo's hospital bill.
The sponsor site is asking Chalice to pay for Jojo's treatment so the family can focus on his recovery without the burden of worrying how they can possibly pay off this debt.
