Alex Medina is calling on the public for help as his dad Pen Medina is scheduled to undergo spine surgery.

In an IG post on July 16, Saturday, the Kapuso actor asked for financial aid and described his father's condition.

"Our dad, 71-year-old actor Pen Medina, has been in the hospital for three weeks now and currently cannot sit or stand up due to Degenerative Disc Disease (DDD). He is scheduled for major spine surgery on Tuesday, July 19."

"Due to the pandemic, our dad scarcely had any work, which siphoned his savings over the past two years," Alex added. "We are trying to help him as best as we can but it will be a long road to sufficient recovery for him."

"We humbly appeal for your charitable help and prayers as our family navigates through helping him get back on his feet - literally and figuratively. Maraming salamat."

According to Medical News Today, DDD is associated with age and it occurs when "one or more of the discs between the vertebrae of the spinal column deteriorates or breaks down, leading to pain."
