Hi! I am Joniday Nieva, a doctor by profession and I am starting this campaign to help my sister raise fund for my niece’s medical needs.
Clara is 1 year and 6 months old with Multiple Congenital Anomalies (Atelosteogenesis Type II vs Diastrophic dyaplasia vs Fetal Akinesia), seizure disorder. When she was born, she was admitted in the neonatal ICU. She required a tracheostomy tube at 1 month old due to laryngotracheomalacia (collapsible airway causing obstruction and difficulty of breathing). Since then, she had multiple hospitalizations for change of tracheostomy and pneumonia. Currently, she is admitted at the Philippine General Hospital for sepsis for which she needs antibiotics and a possibly prolonged hospitalization. Clara has also undergone IJ catheter insertion.
Clara needs 24/7 monitoring so my sister had to stop working to care for her. Clara is the third of my sister’s children. Her two elder siblings were both diagnosed with Multiple congenital anomalies as well and required prolonged hospitalization. Unfortunately, both did not survive due to complications.
My sister and her husband’s funds are already exhausted. I have been helping them out as much as I can but since I’ve only been relying on my salary as a fellow trainee for the past 3 years, my financial capacity is also limited.
Clara is my sister’s last chance of mothering a child of her own.
Any financial support will make it possible for us to continue to provide Clara the best care that she needs.
