To bury a loved one!!!

My family is need of a wish. You see we have a major situation on our hands. My brother-in-law went to the Philippines to visit his girlfriend. While over there he became sick. He suffered from a stroke and heart attack, among of things. He was fighting for his life for about 3 weeks. He was on and off life support several times. Finally he suffered from another stroke, went into a come and never woke up. The Philippine doctors confirmed him dead. After I confirmed to my mother-in-law of his deaf. She had a nervous break down. She still is currently in the hospital. The United States Embassy has emailed the family and told us that before we can bring my brother-in-law home to bury him, we have to pay $9,700.00 in medical bills. You see it is a Philippine custom that any and all medical bills must be paid in full before the hospital releases his body and death certificate. The US Embassy also stated to us that we also would need $8,000.00. in funds to be able to fly his body back home as well. My family needs help on this matter. We do not have the
funds to do so. We so desperate to get him home and have a proper memorial service for him. But we just dont have the funds to do so. Any and all help would be greatly appreciated.

I am here in PH & medical bills are usually charged upon admission & along the way. The body of a US citizen is likely to become custody of the US State Department who coordinates with the family. There would also be an official report of death abroad. @ comment below the girlfriend has no legal say at all. I would try to verify via https://www.facebook.com/manila.usembassy or http://manila.usembassy.gov/wwwha017.html#Inexpensive ACS Manila should have a point of contact handling the case. Cremation is recommended due to the expense of body transfer to the US.

With the amount of money that is needed we would be more comfortable donating if you could provide billing statements, emails, etc., that show proof of the need. Does this site pay the bill directly to the hospital or does it go to the family? Would you please provide info on how to pay the hospital directly, ie: phone numbers to english speaking billing dept. etc. Thank you in advance.

I am sorry for your lose. We took had a situation (in the US) of not being able to bury my brother as we did not have the funds. Posted here and got lots of advise and prays and somehow we got the funds to cremate him. (it is not as much as you need). I wish I could help and that you find a hero. You will be in my prayers

Wow that is a lot of responsibility for you. i know your right about how they deal with medical bills in the Philipines. Since his girlfriend is over there is there a possibility she could have him creamated and ship his ashes back to you. I know you need the medical bills paid but this is just a thought.
