At first glance, this 5-year old boy looks like your normal average kid. Yet within him lies a health condition that needs immediate medical attention. Mark Julian Tamayo was diagnosed with Rheumatic Heart Disease two years ago in General Santos City. While in Davao, he was found to have Congenital Heart Disease.
This means that his condition was not gradually acquired but was already present at birth. Currently, he needs to undergo an urgent operation to help with his condition. But as of the moment, it is not possible.
He cannot go under the knife right away because of the problem with his lungs. There is a huge amount of pressure in his lungs that if the operation will push through, he might have the possibility of experiencing complications including death.
That is why as of this moment, he needs to maintain his medication for six months to help relieve the pressure and hope to have better results in the future.
One of his medications includes a tablet worth 595 pesos that can only be found in one place which is Davao Doctors Hospital. As a parent, seeing your child this way is truly heart-breaking. That’s why I’m doing everything that I can in order to help find solutions for the treatment of this kid’s condition.
This little boy is my nephew and I’m knocking in your kind hearts to please help this innocent child live a better life in the near future. For a child, we know that it’s not easy to have a health problem at such a young age. I hope that you could find within yourselves to help make a difference in this little boy’s life.
Please help me gather medical support for their family so that they may overcome this challenge in their lives.
