Meet my son Bryon Dwayne Z. Martinez, 10 years of age and has the height of a 6 year old and the weight of a healthy 3 to 4 year old toddler. He was born October 12, 2008, unfortunately my little Dwayne has a very rare congenital defect called tracheo esophageal fistula an abnormal connection (fistula) between the esophagus and the trachea. TEF is a congenital abnormality, meaning he was born with no capability of being able to swallow the food he chews through his mouth directly to his stomach since his esophagus is a dead end and food cannot proceed to be digested in his stomach like a normal kid would be. He underwent a minor operation at only 2 days old and another 2 major operations in his first month on earth. And imagine he was born premature at 7 months and was the size of a 1 liter Coca-Cola bottle and weighing only 3 kilograms. I would like to knock on your good willed hearts to ask for help in making him to be able to eat like a normal kid already, for him to not be fed from a syringe to a tube that is connected to his stomach anymore. I ask from your kind hearts to help my little warrior to be able to eat properly with all the food he wants and to gain weight and grow up normally. It has been his very wish since he was 3 years old, I on the other hand am not capable of making this happen since I do not have the financial capabilities to do so. I hope that you would be able to help my little warrior and make his dream of being able to eat all his favorite food through his mouth and not suffer being envious from watching other kids whenever they are eating. If I can be able to repay you with whatever I can then I would do everything just for my kid to be normal again. It has been 10 years that he has been suffering from this condition, I hope that you can be his instrument of finding goodness and hope in becoming complete again.
