Hi, My name is Marivic Galang from the province of Sibuyan Island Romblon,Philippines.My Grand daugther Jazelle Christine Galang is just 1month and 15days when we rushed her and admitted in the National childrens Hospital as we notice that she is having a very heavy breathing and the color of her finger nails and lips was changing to bluish upon crying and then she was diagnosed for Pneumonia and found out later on that she has Congenital Heart Disease with D-TGA,ASD,VSD and PDA and referred us to the Heart Center of the Philippines to have her case evaluate.Then after all the laboraty test was done like ECG,XRAY,CBC, and 2D ECHO and her doctor had her Case Presentation just 2 days ago and advice us that she requires immediate surgery.
WHAT IS TGA?
TGA(transposition of the great arteries), the aorta is in front of the pulmonary artery and is either primarily to the right (dextro) or to the left (levo) of the pulmonary artery.Her oxygen-poor blood from the body enters the right side of the heart. But, instead of going to the lungs, the blood is pumped directly back out to the rest of the body through the aorta. Oxygen-rich blood from the lungs entering the heart is pumped straight back to the lungs through the main pulmonary artery
With the 3 hole between the lower chambers of the heart such as
VSD-(a ventricular septal defect) or the upper chambers of the heart
ASD-(an atrial septal defect) that allow blood to mix so that some oxygen-rich blood can be pumped to the rest of the body.
PDA-(patent ductus arteriosus )also allows some oxygen-rich blood to be pumped to the rest of the body.
Now she is turning 3months. And we will be needing around 1 million pesos for her surgery and we already manage to get help from our goverment social service but still we need to pay a share of 15% of it.
We are knocking to your kind hearted souls to help our little warrior lives long.Any amounts will help and be very much appreciated.Please bear with us on her journey.Your thoughts and Prayers will always be our weapons. Godbless you all.
