Baby boy Rayoby GILAS Fernandez came out 3 months earlier. As preterm baby, he needs to be in incubator with no definite time when to release at NICU.
Six days at NICU, baby Gilas bill shoots to Php206k and still need some medicine like antibiotics and intensive monitoring until normal breathing is stable.
Mommy is not working while Daddy is a regular employee at a private company. Finances have already piled up with other obligations. CC has already maxed out.
Parents worked out for baby Gilas for 10 years. Mommy is 37 while Daddy is 38 now. Ten years worth the wait and parents will do everything to save baby Gilas and give him the best future any parents will desire.
Please help and give the parents the chance living the life called “family”.
Go fight GILAS!
