Coronary Artery Bypass Surgery Quick facts Procedure Cost of Procedure Value of Heart - $119,000 - $15,000 to 30,000 Our society places value on human life based on how much money one makes. A person is judged based on irrelevant factors. No one's life should be said to be greater than another's. Because life is priceless, every human being deserves to have health insurance. Although premiums may seem expensive, they don't compare to the full cost of major medical procedures. Conclusion Filipino culture mixes Roman Catholic traditions and indigenous religious superstitions Procession from wake to church After burial, novena (special commemorative prayer) is made for nine days
Formal meal is made with entire family
40 days after death, party to celebrate full journey to heaven
Year after death, waksi - final mourning party/prayer - made to remember the dead and end the grieving process Superstitions throughout mourning Overall, Filipino mourning customs are unique in that they blend indigenous superstitions and Roman Catholic beliefs into a culture that both fears and embraces death Life is ultimately a celebration of the time spent with loved ones and friends, and defines the respect garnered by them in return, thus valuing each life lost as a life won Chemicals:
