As a mother knowing that your daughter is dying is really painful, I felt so helpless that i cannot even gave her the transplant that she needs, that's why i am knocking all of your hearts to please help my daughter. Please let her live the life of a normal child.
My name is Lyn, a mother of four kids.I have a daughter named Yisha, my first born child and my only daughter. Yisha was born differently with a weak immune system and skinny body. She was a blue baby since she was born and has very skinny body frame. She easily get sick so we are in and out of the hospital whenever she catches cough and fever. The general Doctor noticed of her frame and weight and also the color of her lips and palm so she advised me to get her a 2decho to check the status of her heart but we were not able to send her to that test right away because of financial matters. My husband is a driver and i earn by baking cakes at home to sell and do online selling products but our income is enough only for our food that's why we haven't send her to a specialist right away. We need to saved so much so we can send her to that 2decho. She was 5 yrs old when she vomited dead blood cloths and thankfully that time my savings is enough to send her for 2decho. But after that 2decho we knew that she has a hole in her heart. We were advised for a surgery but we cannot afford to pay it, i ask help to my family but we were not able to raised it, there are good hearted people (mam Connie and Sir Cameron) who helped us raised but still not enough for a surgery but we were able to send my daughter in a hospital to laser some blood cloths on her heart which can help her feel better and breath since her blood can flow without those cloths. She has so many medicines at that time so i almost sell everything we have. Our small lot, even our wedding ring just to sustain her medicines. Maam Connie helped us a lot on her medicines, sometimes she settled some of the lacking amount just to continue Yisha's medicines. But i lost the only communication we have when i lost my cellphone when i rushed my daughter to the hospital. I don't know how to contact her anymore. Thank you so much maam Connie, hope you are well.
After her laser we tried so much to continue her medicines but there are times that she cannot take her medicines due to financial matters of our family. She always catches cough and flu so I gave her the same medicines that was prescribed for her since she was admitted at the age of 5. She really wanted to go to school so we allow her. But she cannot do what normal kids do, like playing outside and talk to other kids since she easily catch viruses. She have so many dreams for her future and she wanted to become a stewardess.She is a strong-willed girl and prayerful. She loves her baby brothers so much.She always pray for our families health. But we notice that she is not gaining weight and her body is still so skinny.
Until last december 2018, she had heart attack and got mild stroke. I don't lose hope of having her back to life when the doctor told us that her body oxygen is down to 26 and her sugar is down to 1.8 mmol/L which made her hallucinating and cause her to stroke. We prayed so much and asked God to give her chance to live and he answered our prayer. After giving her supplements, IV and oxygen her sugar and body oxygen raised slowly. We stayed there for 15 days and her bill increases each day of our stay. So when she felt a little better we were force to bring her home because of the increasing bill which we just promise to pay so she can be discharged from the hospital. We were advised to bring her to a cardiologist for further test and opinion.
Then Last week she felt so weak and her lips stayed so blue. I really have no money to bring her to a cardiologist since we still have to pay the bill we've promised. I prayed and asked God to give me strength to find a way. God answered me thru my husband's boss. He shouldered the cardiologist and the test. After the test the cardiologist talked to me and told me that the hole in my daughter's heart is hopeless for any surgery since the hole is too big and they saw no veins anymore in that area. That hole left them no option but a heart transplant. She said only half of her heart is functional as of now and will only last for 5 yrs. She said a heart transplant will cost around $400,000 to $580,000. And the worst is the heart transplant is not available in my country. And that we need to have a heart donor that is compatible to my daughter. And the doctor also notice that her head is enlarging too so she advice us for a CT Scan of her. They saw some holes in her head also but we haven't bring it yet to a specialist to read it.
You know, as a mother all she said was killing me since we really cannot give her the transplant that she needs. Until now my tears will fall unnoticed whenever i see her lying and getting weak. How am i going to live watching my daughter slowly dying. I am so down and i always asked God for a miracle but sometimes I asked "why us, why my daughter? We are good people, good family, why not those murderers that need to pay their life for their crime committed? But until now i still don't get the answer of that question that kept on bugging my head everytime my daughter felt the pain of her heart which slowly kills me deep inside. We never showed her that we are sad, we smile and encourage her to live like she wanted to, because if she notice that we are sad and in trouble that will affect her because she will bring it to heart that could possibly cause her become worst. So we need to fake a smile, faking that we are happy even if we are so broke.
If only i can gave my life to my daughter i am so much willing to give it so she can still have time to live and to fulfil her dreams. But what i am asking seems so impossible that's why i am trying so hard to save her life even if i need to beg just to save her. I asked a friend Maam Pinky if she knew an institution for kids that can help my daughter to get a transplant but unfortunately all of the kids foundation/ hospital called me that they don't conduct heart surgery which made me so sad. So maam Pinky told me about this fundraising that could maybe help me raise for my daughter to have her heart transplant. As a mother of Yisha please help my daughter live. Im begging you please let my daughter see the future of her life. I beg you all to please let her live, please help my daughter. Please include her in your prayers, your prayer is so much help to give her more strength and hope. Thank you so much for spending your time on reading my letter and I hope you will help my daughter. If ever you want to see my daughter in person or online or see the results of her test i can email it to you. Thank you so much and God bless.
