Good day everyone. My child Keva Lauren A. Jimenez is now 8 months old and was diagnosed last April 2019 (at the Riverside Medical Center Inc. in Bacolod City) with an esophageal achalasia brought by a narrowing lower esophageal sphincter that makes her have pneumonia most of the time and been hospitalised for 4 times since birth last Nov. 9, 2018.
The recommended treatment is Myotomy or a non-evasive operation however this needs final recommendation by the doctors at the Philippine Children's Medical Center in Diliman, Quezon City, Metro Manila which we will go there this July 18, 2019 after their evaluations and if they can handle the operation locally.
I am appealing for any financial donation as we still do not know how far this journey will go and the cost until her full recovery as even doctors here in Bacolod and Iloilo could not make an estimate as this is a rare case disease they had encountered resulting for their recommendation to go to Manila for better options.
We are also seeking for prayers for my child's healing and recovery and to grow as a good child and as a good person someday.
All efforts will be much appreciated as currently me and my wife had limited sources and we could not afford any additional loans as both of us resigned for our jobs to focus first on the health condition of our child.
Thank you very much and God bless!
