We are starting a fundraiser for our 7-month old son, Gestalt Lucis L. Abrena, to help for his treatment of Kawasaki's Disease.
KD is a condition in which blood vessels all throughout the body start to get inflamed. The cause for this is unknown, and the disease is not spread from people to people. On children, it may lead to coronary artery aneurysms, in which case their coronary artery (a blood vessel in the heart) becomes inflamed and dilated, leading to fatalities.
Our son falls under the age bracket of those who can be affected by complications of KD, and he is currently undergoing treatment in order to combat this. He needs to have medicine, IVIG (intravenous immunogobulin) which costs around PHP9,000 to PHP15,000, and he needs 18 grams (or 7.2 vials of 2.5 grams each) of this said medicine, on top of all the hospital fees.
As we would want Lucis' procedures to not cut corners and cause delay, we decided to hold a fundraiser to cover his medical fees. Our current HMO providers cannot cover it at the moment, due to technicalities for dependent coverage. We would like to let him undergo all the possible treatments, as we would not want anything to happen to our precious child.
We cannot give anything in return, but please, we humbly ask for any amount of assistance possible.

Lucis' mother, Bevie, and I will be extremely grateful for your help in letting our kid live happier by the time this ordeal has been done. Please do donate in any amount you wish. We will personally extend our deepest thanks once we receive any amount from you. We will also be starting other fundraisers for children's diseases in the future, to pay forward all the help we would be receiving.
Please help us provide Gestalt with a future he deserves to be in.
