I am knocking on your kind heart to help give the chance of life to our little heart warrior,
Clhea May Isturis. Upon birth, abnormal heart murmurs had been traced by her pediatrician
at Quirino Memorial Medical Center. This lead to a referral for her to undergo 2D Echo test
then Doctor Manrique of QMMC proceeded and referred us to Philippine Heart Center.
The final interpretation of her tests read:
"Congenital Heart Disease
Dextrocardia, Double Outlet Right Ventricle
Malposed Great Arteries
Atrioventricular Septal Defect, Rastelli Type C
Pulmonary stenosis infundibulovalvar severe"
She was detected to have Asplenia syndrome as well.
Our daughter would need a lot of medication before any major procedure can be done to her.
Vaccines such as Prevenar 13 (8,100php - 3 shots), Meninggoccocal (4,800php - 2 shots),
Varicella (2,000php), among others, were advised to be administered to our daughter.
With medical expenses piling up and her recent hospitalizations, we are bound to lose hope.
Clhea needs to undergo Cardiac Catheterization which would cost around 77,000php
if it would be conducted by a private doctor from Philippine Heart Center.
Since we are incapable of furnishing such amount in a snap, Clhea had to line up
for charity at the heart center falling under out patients. It had been 2 years though,
and we are still waiting. If a miracle happens and Clhea's Cardiac Catheterization
becomes successful, she would then proceed to undergo Glenn Shunt surgical operation.
The procedure alone would cost around 500,000php at the heart center.
It would be another insanely huge amount we're ought to raise for our daughter
and the struggle doesn't end here. She would be required to undergo Fontan procedure,
which apparently could cost more than 1,000,000php.
We couldn't barely imagine how we would be able to raise funds for Clhea's condition.
Her father is only a clerk at a supermarket who roughly earns 5,600php in a month
and we still have another child to support and send to school. We are only renting a place
to stay since we do not have a house of our own. As much as I wanted to have a job
to be able to help in the finances of our family, I need to focus on taking care of Clhea
and my other child who happens to be anemic like me.
With this, I humbly seek your help. I am a mother who just wants to be with her daughter
for more years to come. I hope the generous hearts of those who are reading this
would serve as an instrument for Clhea's heart condition to be better.
Please give her the chance to live a normal life.
We are greatly in need of financial help, hence any amount would be appreciated.
Sharing this would also be a big help for us too. I know your kindness would later on
be rewarded by good karma from our Creator.
