My son 'Enzo Bundalian 7 years old was rushed to the emergency room last Jan. 30,2020 and is a coma state due to low oxygen levels, high carbon dioxide, severe pneumonia and asthma. He is currently in the NICU of Asian hospital and now on his 2nd week already intubated to help him breathe.
Enzo is a special child with multiple conditions - CEREBRAL PALSY, LENNOX GASTAUT EPILEPSY - rare type of epilepsy, CORTICAL VISUAL IMPAIRMENT, INTELLECTUAL DISABILITY, ASTHMA and HIP DYSPLASIA. Cerebral Palsy is a neurological condition caused by brain damage and Lennox Gastaut is a rare type of epilepsy resistant to seizure medications.
He was born premature only at 30 weeks and since the day of his birth, we have devoted much of our time caring for our fighter baby boy. Our lives have transformed immensely incorporating physical therapy, occupational therapy and feeding therapy to help him lead a normal life as much as possible. Hospital confinements are frequent 4x a year due to his weak immune system. We are trying to give Enzo the best possible care and made him our priority. But it has been very challenging attending to his needs especially now that he is in the NICU for 2 weeks. No amount of preparation can ever prepare parents for the emotional roller coaster of having a special child like Enzo.
Daily seizures which reach 80 to 100, therapies and of course financial obligations. The financial challenges have been way over our current capacity. Any help would be appreciated to ease the burden financially would be a huge comfort. As of the moment the running bill in ICU at Asian is Php1 Million ($20,000) excluding Professional fees of doctors and this is still expected to go up as Enzo has yet to be stable. This excludes outpatient therapy sessions as a sustaining support to maintain Enzo's stability.
I am humbly asking for any help you can extend to Enzo through financial help. It would mean the world to our family. Help Enzo the warrior fighter get over this hurdle and help him get home soon.
