Thank you dear friends for all your prayers and generous donations to April’s recovery fund. It is truly amazing how our relatives, friends and even strangers from different parts of the world could extend their help to my sister. Your love and support keep us strong and positive.

Here are a few updates on April’s recovery:

1.      She can open her right eye;

2.       She yawns;

3.       She can move her left foot;

4.       She can hold a phone;

As per doctors’ advice, she has to be in the ICU until her condition becomes stable. We’re hoping that she’d be fully conscious soon.

Please continue to pray for April’s full recovery. Thank you again for all your support and prayers for my sister and our family. Your prayers and support are priceless and much appreciated! God bless you!

Updated running bill as of September 9, 2017:

657,862.27 (approx. US$ 13,400)


On Saturday, August 19th, our dear friend April got into a tragic accident while touring in Bantayan, Cebu. She had a traumatic brain injury and had undergone Hemicraniectomy or brain surgery due to the blood clot and swelling in her brain.

She is currently in an induced coma. Her mom, and dad, Tita Wenda and Tito Ben, takes care of everything she needs at the hospital, while her younger sister Jel finds ways to cover the expenses.

Being hundred miles away from home, family and friends, and seeing their beloved child and sister suffering, we know that this is very hard for them. And we’re trying to help in any way we can.

April needs urgent blood transfusion and an approximately Php 17,000 – 20,000 pesos (seventeen to twenty-thousand pesos’) / (approx. US $400) worth of medications each day to survive. Their running bill at the hospital as of August 28th was Php 319,709 (three hundred nineteen thousand and seven hundred nine pesos) / (approx. US$ 7000).

They NEED our help. 

April is the head of the family. She is a loving daughter, a caring sister and a wonderful friend. She has brought happiness to her families, friends, and colleagues in her simple ways and is always willing to give everything she has for the people she loves. We truly miss her and we’re begging the heavens to send forth its miracles for April and her family. 

No donation is too small.

Your support and contribution is very much appreciated. Please spread the word and help us continue the fight for April! God bless you!

April Penales Angco, 32, studied at University of the Philippines Los Baños, and worked as a Workforce Lead at Sykes Philippines and as a Team Leader and Social Media Analyst at StraightArrow Corporation.
