The funds from this campaign will be used towards his medical expenses which is beyond his personal private health insurance coverage.
Last March 12, 2013, Wool was rushed to the hospital due to a sudden bleeding in the brain for uncertain causes making him unconscious and under critical care. This is totally unexpected of Wool since he is a 34 year old man, who is healthy and is a fit sportsman.
Wool was brought by his brother Michael to the hospital after finding him on the pavement outside a coffee shop at Bonifacio HighStreet during a meeting. Unconscious, no pulse, no breathing, no heartbeat. He was rushed to the nearby St. Luke's Global City, Fort Bonifacio hospital; cardiac arrest happened. They were ale to revive him but he is still unconscious. Imaging in his heart showed no problems. Another imaging was done and showed that he had bleeding in his brain. Until now, we are waiting for further developments from his expert team of medical doctors.
