Luana has a complex medical history. She was born prematurely at 30 weeks and demonstrated severe symmetric intrauterine growth restriction weighing only 520 grams. She also presented with broncho pulmonary dysplasia with pulmonary hypertension (requiring oxygen), gastroesophageaI reflux, requiring fundoplication and a G-tube. Luana also presented with osteopenia, a history of fractures and a history of osteomyelitis. Several Physicians were convincing our daughter wouldn't survive or if living would have a lot of physical problems such as blindness, deadness, down syndrome, and pulmonary decease among others, yet she has been fighting to become a normal child, none of this deceases have been touched our daughter except for pulmonary decease.
However, currently Luana presents with a global developmental delay, a mild hearing loss in both cars, autism diagnosis as well as continued feeding difficulties, still requiring a G-tube.
Therefore, Luana requires funds in order to still purchase feeding supplies, cover feeding therapies expenses, special food to help Luana eat via oral as well as other training support for she is also receiving speech therapies due to her autism diagnosis.
Luana has progressed quite well thanks to the Power of God firstly as well as to many others who have contributed and worked for Luana's health improvement such as nurses, medical consultants, social workers and interventionists. Yet, there is still a long way to go in the completion of Luana's treatment.
It will be well appreciated any help you can give!
