i everyone, this little bundle of joy is named Olivia Sheron Clarete Gracilla.
She is an 8 month old baby girl diagnosed with Craniosynostosis, Microcephaly, Patent Ductus Arteriosu (PDA, a heart condition) resulting in Multi Focal Epilepsy, and quite possibly Cerebral Palsy due to her delayed development.
Read about her condition here:
Craniosynthosis Microcephaly - https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3745117/
Patent Ductus Arteriosus - https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/patent-ductus-arteriosus/symptoms-causes/syc-20376145
She has known only her own home and the hospital beds where she has been confined since the day she was born. Due to the nature of her conditions, her growth and development has been delayed quite severely as she has yet to see from her own eyes until now.
She is now currently in the Child's Hope Hospital in Pasig under intensive care due to severe malnutrition, pneumonia and currently undergoing multiple tests to see what other complications she has. She also suffers daily from multiple seizures, with a minimum of 7 seizures a day due to her multi focal epilepsy condition.
She needs every bit of help she can get.
Her parents, Ron and Cess, as well as the rest of their respective families have been keeping the faith and fighting strongly and non-stop to help Baby Oli get healthy.
But the amount of bills to pay have been piling up, so much so that the family has asked for public help, through friends and social media.
This campaign hopes to support the family in their wish to get Baby Oli better. We need any amount of monetary donations you can spare to help pay the bills of Baby Oli to help her begin her life as a healthy energetic baby girl.
She has a lot of medication, hospitalizations, testing and therapy ahead of her. And with this page, we hope we can at least supplement her needs and help the family keep up with the financial requirements these entail.
Other than this page, for those who want to donate through the family's own personal account, please see the details below for donations:

The family is also selling goods as well in order to keep up with the costs. You can check out the facebook pages of Ron Gracilla and Cess Clarete and message them both. They sell the following:
Gourmet Tuyo Reg/Spicy
Brownies & Caramel bar
Marshmallows with fillings
Thank you for spending your time visiting and reading about this campaign. Above all the monetary donations, please keep Baby Olivia in your prayers that she may get healthy.
We are also asking for your help in spreading this campaign to make it as wide-reaching as possible. The family has been keeping up with the expenses for the past 8 months and the financial well is getting dry but their spirit and optimism remains unwavering.
We hope that this campaign helps enough that it covers some of the expenses Baby Olivia and her family will be facing. Again, thank you for your time and well-wishes to you all.
