Hi! I’m Sophia Barrido. I am sharing this story in the hopes of gathering financial support to help my sister and brother in law (Sarah & Lou Gokian) with the medical expenses for my 14 month old nephew; Alonzo Gokian who is currently in a coma, has pneumonia, sepsis and infection in the lungs, heart, liver, and kidney.
Alonzo was diagnosed with Global developmental delay when he was 10months old. He was regularly doing therapy at home to help him catch up with his milestones. My sister was also having a difficult time feeding him solid food so they had him checked and he was diagnosed with hypothyroidism.
He was rushed to the ER last February 10, 2021 in Medical City because he was no longer eating, nor breastfeeding. And he was no longer moving much. After several tests, the doctors said that Zo has UTI, infection and his immune system is not good. Usually your body should have a fever if you have such infection. But for Alonzo’s case, he didnt have any fever. Thats why the doctors are having a hard time pointing out the problem..
He also has Disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC). It is a rare but serious condition that causes abnormal blood clotting throughout the body’s blood vessels. It is caused by another disease or condition, such as an infection or injury, that makes the body’s normal blood clotting process become overactive. That’s the reason we also need blood donors (O+)for him. If we dont treat this immediately, he will not stop bleeding and his body can crash.
It has been a roller coaster ride for the family because of Alonzo’s condition. He is now in a coma, he has pneumonia and his lungs, liver, kidney and heart are not in good condition. We want to fight for his life because he is too young to be experiencing all these. He is a fighter!
Because of all the complications, Alonzo has to be monitored closely by the doctors thats why he is in the ICU. Medical expenses are piling up.
I humbly ask for your help to be able to support my sister and brother in law with their hospital expenses for Alonzo. We are believing for God’s miracle in his life. We are fighting this battle togetger with Alonzo and will do anything to give my nephew a chance to live a longer and a healthy life so that he can still explore the world and spend time with his loved ones.
There is no donation too big or too small – any donation would go a long way to help with the expenses.
