The actor is set to undergo a heart procedure called angioplasty and is asking for help to raise P750,000 for the expenses. Angioplasty is a treatment that “uses stents to improve blood flow to the heart by opening a narrowed or blocked coronary artery,” according to the Heart Foundation in New Zealand.

Those interested in extending financial aid can send their donations to his crowdfunding page or to the following bank accounts:

Paras is currently confined at St. Luke’s Medical Center due to issues with his heart. Prior to his appeal for donations, the actor was tested for the coronavirus last month. However, he later revealed that he tested negative for the virus.

“Para akong nanalo ng (It feels like I won an) AWARD!!!” he said in a previous post. “Now, this makes me HAPPY!”
