This is to fund Kasandra Nadine Laya for her spine surgery. She is a smart 13 year old girl who has dwarfism issue, cleft palate, and has spine deformity (Kyphoscoliosis) as shown below. . This little girl is very jolly, she dances well, witty and God-loving. You can never ignore and tolerate her in person.
She will undergo extra-ordinary spine surgery that would require travel to Pasadena California and her scheduled evaluation will be on January 19, 2018 9:45 AM at Shriners Hospital for Children. At this point we are raising funds to support our trip to the United States, this includes US Visa Expenses, air fare and pocket money for undetermined stay in the US.
We were able to find a sponsor, as one the top requirements for international patient, to qualify for the hospital service, who will accommodate us during our stay in California but still need contingency fund for other expenditures relevant to pre and post surgery activities.
I, being the Father, don't have enough financial resources to fully fund this goal. My wife has no income to back me up but all she has is the powerful prayer to find people, groups, or institution to help us up.
We appeal to everyone who has a heart to help us raise funds to support our trip and stay in the US to complete her SPINE SURGERY. We really can't afford to fund this endeavor through our own means and earnings. One of the Spine Surgeons who made an evaluation here in the Philippines that the least time that it would require to complete Nadine's surgery is 6 weeks but that will depend on the current evaluation, it may go beyond 6 months. She will also undergo pre-surgery activities to ensure her health is completely ready for the surgery, the Surgery per se, and post activities as well prior to getting back home.
We had our toughest decision to leave our beloved daughter's life and her chance to get a normal life to the hands of Best Surgeons in the US, it's the biggest risk we are taking but we are HOPEFUL that it would be successful. We just need to get there and let it done.
My daughter has huge smile in her and she has the courage, more than us, to undergo surgery. we waited for this invitation since April 17, 2017, and we are getting closer.
We are now in Sacramento California, where she is undergoing Halo Traction procedures up until her spine surgery.
Her surgery in Shriners Hospital for Children Sacramento will be July 31, 2018.
