I am Arcely Manzanillo La Rosa a wife and mother to 3 boys named Gabiel, Daniel and Samiel. I remember the day that we found out that I am pregnant with my 3rd child, we are so happy and excited. With my previous two pregnancies i never had any issues during pregnancy till my 3rd pregnancy. During my 28th week I was diagnosed with Pre-eclampsia and HELLP syndrome which resulted to a emergency delivery at C-section. I was admitted to hospital evening of Aug 22 due to severe headache and vomiting which is a known symptoms of pre-eclampsia. On the same day the doctor told us that they needed to deliver the baby as his life and mine is at big risk if not done immediately. Samiel was born Aug 23, 2017 with a weight of 725 grams.Since Baby Samiel was born months earlier and with that he needs to stay in Neonatal ICU for at least 3 mos. He is so small, too delicate to touch and looking at him felt like its crushing my heart into pieces. As mentioned by the doctors that we will need to prepare big amount to cover the cost of his stay in NICU. A lot of people touched our hearts, our family and friends. We are also thankful that all the nurses and doctors in PCMC (Philippine Children’s Medical Center) are very dedicated to their profession and very loving and caring to all the patients. Travelling for 2 hours from home to hospital everyday and staying there made me and my husband closer to the other parents that is having the same struggle. We get to know each other and shared our experiences in this journey. Day by day i have realised how lucky we are and that we need to be thankful everyday.
The reason why I created this page is to raise fund to help us with the hospital bill that we will incur for Samiel stay in NICU and apart from this we will take this opportunity as well to share the blessings and donate to other babies in NICU. This will surely help few families and the babies that are having the same case as mine at PCMC.
Thank you for taking the time to read my post. Thank you so much for finding it in your heart to help us through this life changing event. Again, thank you in advance for making any donation you can. God Bless!
We love you all..
Patrick, Arcely and Samiel La Rosa
