Angel is a baby girl who was diagnosed with Meningo Encephalocoeles when she was still in her mother’s tummy (she was 5 months old inside) The doctor said that there’s only a slight chance that she may live, and I hope we understand that given the risk the mom still decided to go on with the pregnancy and delivery even though they were both at risk. I remember Cindy saying “Anak ko po iyan mam, hindi ko po kaya na basta na lang siya isuko.”
They’re from Bataan and and they travel to Manila for check ups and follow ups, local hospitals in their hometown told them they can’t do anything for Angel for they also have limited technology and facility. The family lives a simple life and couldn’t afford all the needs for Angel’s condition.
To date, with the help of people who saw Angel’s condition thru a facebook post, the family was able to raise money for her first operation. A shunt procedure to reduce the pressure on Angel’s head and allow the fluid to circulate.
We all know that this is only first of many operations the 8 month old baby will have to go through. Her first operation was done last July 3, 2019 at a public hospital in Manila. According to the doctor Angel may need 2-3 operations.
Buong puso mapagkumbabang humihingi ng tulong ang pamilya ng bata na sila ay tulungan para mailigtas ang buhay ng kanilang anak. She’s a tiny little baby carrying a big weight in her head. She couldn’t sit, and couldn’t even sleep comfortably. She already lost her eyesight due to complications.
And me I’m just another person who wants to help the family. Sa lahat po ng may mabubuting puso, sana ay matulungan natin ang batang ito na lumalaban para sa kanyang buhay. Thank you.
