Kylie Keisha M. Luistro / 1yr 10mos
Keisha was diagnosed with ITP ( Immune Thrombocytopenic Purpura) last September 2019 with the platelet count of 27,000. They gave her oral med ( Prednisone) but didnt work for her. And after a week she's been admitted again due to high fever, diarhea and colds and they required her to have IVIG because of her low platelet. But a miracle happened 😊🙏 her platelet count went up to 130,000. But few weeks later we noticed some bruises again in her legs. CBC was done. And her plateler was just 18, 000 and required us again for IVIG ( its a blood product often given to people who have an immune deficiency or an autoimmune illness, including immune thrombocytopenia (ITP). (A blood product is a substance made from human blood.) IVIG is used to replace the part of the blood that contains antibodies. Antibodies help fight infection. And It cost 180,000 pesos. She received her IVIG last October 2019 and platelet went up to 230,000 but didnt last due to infections and tried to take Oral medicine but again didnt work. It's like a roller coster ride, platelet counts go up and down. And now admitted again because of high fever and fecalysis was done revealing positive Entamoeba coli cyst and positive technique. And also have bloody mucoid stool. They gave her antiobiotics and lots of medicine to help her. And now her platelet count was 6,000 , platelet transfusion was done and also need to have an IVIG treatment again. We tried looking for other hospital that have low cost of IVIG but some hospital has no available room and other has no available IVIG. Im knocking on your generous heart to help us for her IVIG treatment. Any amount would be highly appreciated and indeed be a great help.
Thank you, God bless ❤️
