I was born with a congenital disease called hydrocephalus which was diagnosed as early as when I was just two months old by my mom's pedia. It was said that I was the first case in the Philippines in 1987 (I was born January 20, 1987). Symptoms like sunset eyes was seen in me so my parents were then advised to seek immediate treatment. I was then flown to Cebu City, because the only neurosurgeon/s in the country were in Cebu. The diagnosis was right so I was subject for operation. I was then like the live guineapig of the nurses and doctors that time since my case was "rare".
My first operation was a success. I was able to live a normal life until I reached the age of 7 when I had my 2nd major hydrocephalus-related operation. Unfortunately it had a side effect on me orthopedically. I became clubfooted (see my pics from childhood until i grew up). As to what caused this, we don't know until today. My parents had me undergo orthopedic operation in the hopes of restoring my normal walking ability but even the doctor (mom's childhood friend) said that there is no guarantee I'd be able to walk like normal again. As to what caused this? We can only guess between a medicine overdose or a specific nerve connected to our feet was screwed up during the operation. Initially, the only side effect hydrocephalus had on me was my being near sighted. So i was already wearing glasses as early as when i was 3 or 4.
I am launching this crowdfunding campaign in the hope to raise funds so that I may be able to undergo check up (and hopefully an operation) to correct my walking. Be it done locally here in the philippines where I live, or abroad (perhaps germany? My sister works as a nurse there). 🙏🙏🙏
I have another campaign for raising funds to buy some needed gears for my passion in making YouTube Contents. My goal for wanting to be a known YouTuber is to inspire others and hopefully get monetized and become a known content creator, so that I may raise money for my second cause which is what this second campaign is all about
I do hope I get help and support. 🙏🙏🙏
