Actor Andrew Schimmer has appealed for financial help with the expenses of his wife, who is currently bedridden in the intensive care unit (ICU) of St. Louis. Luke’s Medical Center in Bonifacio Global City, Taguig City.
Andrew has posted on his social media accounts urging his showbiz colleagues and open-hearted people to contribute to their soaring hospital bills of more than two million pesos.
