Help Baby Shaila raise funds for her Liver Transplant

Update posted by Sherrie Lyn Castell On Feb 21, 2017

Hello, I’m happy to update everyone that our family is scheduled to go to Taiwan this week for our baby’s liver transplant surgery.

Please accept our heartfelt thanks for believing in our cause, because of your prayers and support, we were able to raise the needed funds for the operation and Shaila will now have the chance to live a normal life :)

Please continue to keep our family in your prayers, that by God’s grace the operation will be successful, that there will be no complications during recovery, and that resources and blessings will continue to pour in for us to sustain Shaila's lifetime medical needs.

Thank you for making a huge difference, for giving us hope during our darkest days, and for being part of our meaningful journey :)

God bless us all

Sincerely,

Sherrie Lyn Castell

(Mother of Baby Shaila Castell)

It has been more than half a year since we started our fundraising activities for the liver transplant fund of our baby. Looking back we had a lot of doubts and worries, saan at paano kami makakaipon ng 4.5 million in a few months time bago mag 1st birthday si Shaila?

We have met a lot of new friends, people who genuinely care for our family.. Mga tao na hindi namen inakalang tutulong at magmamalasakit kahit hindi kami personal na kakilala na susuporta sa mga fundraising activities and events namen for Shaila, to the point of organizing their own events/activities for our baby.

We are also thankful sa mga sponsors ng events, sa mga nagbigay ng services nila for free at sa nagbigay ng discounted price para sa mga services nila, our family is truly grateful for your kind hearts.

Madami dami na ding events/activities pala ang nagawa namen pero hindi kami pwedeng tumigil hanggat hindi pa complete ang pondo.

We also didn’t expect that we can get media exposure from newspapers and biggest networks, it all started when a group of students of University of Makati did a documentary of Shaila’s story as their school requirement.

Malaking tulong ang airing ng story ni Shaila para dumami ang makaalam ng appeal namen for help, lumaki ang network namen outside facebook at madami ang tumulong.

Now we are just few weeks away from her first birthday and we are almost at 50% of our target amount. This gives us hope na yung inakala naming impossible a few months back, e posible pala with the grace of our Lord and with the help our a lot of people who chose to help.

We have learned that there are a lot of generous people out there willing to extend their helping hand.

We have learned that not all media exposure can turn into instant donations not unless people will choose to take action and help.

We have learned that God is in control, there are things in life that we can’t fix but we can learn to live with the uncertainties in life, we learned to appreciate our family and friends more, to live at the moment and be happy and be thankful for daily miracles and blessings from God.

Around 10 babies with Biliary Atresia from our group passed away waiting for the needed funds to be completed. We can only hope and pray na patuloy na maging masayahin si Shaila at hindi muna magkaroon ng serious complications while we are still working on the funds for her liver transplant.

We are also praying hard that a lot of people will still continue to help and share our story.
Even if hindi namen nameet yung target amount before Shaila turns 1 this July 23, but at least we are getting there, so please pray for provision, support and help us while our baby still has high chances of survival.

• BDO- Michael Castell – 000 200 539 256
• BPI – Michael Castell – 8706 5275 05
