It's August 25, 2018 when my second son, Ethan Zachary Ruiz was born without abnormalities found in his newborn screening so we thought everything was normal. Few weeks later, we noticed that his breathing was faster than the normal babies so we decided to see a pediatrician. The doctor told us that its not really normal for a baby to breath 80-90 per minute so he was admitted in the hospital right after his checkup. Its really hard for us to see our little one with an oxygen and dextrose on his body. Based on the x-ray result, Ethan has a nenonatal pneumonia and he also needs a phototherapy, and a 2D-echo was advised also to see his heart's condition. During his 2D-echo, the doctor explained the condition of Ethan's heart; he has an interrupted aortic arch, 1 hole in the upper part, 1 hole in the lower part, and his ductus arteriosus remains open. He needs heart surgery for the interrupted aortic arch first then followed by another operation for other defects after a year or when he is already recovered.
His doctor referred us to a cardiologist in Philippine Heart Center in Manila with an estimated down payment of 200,000 pesos, the operation/medication ranges from 300,000-500,000 pesos depending on his condition
We do not have that big amount so I am trying to reach your good heart if you have any amount to help us achieve our target amount. And its a big help also when you give time to pray for Ethan's healing. Help us to save his life and be able to enjoy it.
Thank you in advance and I believe that God will bless you more!
