- hi my name is Riffa Tolentino and I was diagnosed with mitral valve prolapse since 2017.
Everything is okay until I stop taking my lifetime meds for some reason, I was pregnant and I have to stop the medicine for the sake of my beautiful baby so that it won't affect her.
Time passed by my baby grew up so fast my cardiologist said that when my baby's got into 4months I have to meet him up for another check up but I haven't coz I have to take care of my child.
Right now my left atrium is enlarged and I have to do some intensive treatment by taking higher dosage of medicine before I undergo to open heart surgery. If it let untreated I might get stroke or heart attack.
With all of this on the table, I want to reach out to everyone, but I also do not want to burden anyone by asking for a huge sum of money. Instead, I'm appealing to your gentle hearts for a small donation. It is said that great things are accomplished by a series of small things brought together. If a great number of friends, family, and strangers can contribute a small amount to this cause, I can quickly raise the rest of the money needed for my surgery.
Your prayers are also needed and will be appreciated greatly in this time of need. May God bless your soul for caring and for your good intentions, we also pledge our solidarity to you and we are sure that the Universe will also provide for you in your time of need.
