Dearest friends and loved ones,
Please spare me a minute of your time to read Kal-el's story. My son. My Baby Superman.
Kal-El was brought to this world healthy on May 1, 2014. Four (4) months later, he was diagnosed with Biliary Atresia - a rare liver disease. The only cure for this disease is a liver transplant. With the help of family, friends, and people with kind hearts, Kal-el underwent the surgical procedure when he was 1 year old and it was successful.
When Kal-el turned 2 years old, I noticed that he was not talking. Though I am fully aware that every child is unique and will develop at their own pace, I brought him to a specialist. After a number of tests and series of check-ups, Kal-el was diagnosed with Global Developmental Delay (GDD) - a term used when a child takes longer to reach a certain milestone. Since then, he was home-schooled and slowly learning.
Now that he is already 4 years old, I tried enrolling him in a preschool. I immediately noticed how he is as a learner and how hard it is for him cope with children his age. I brought him back to his Developmental Paediatrician and soon after, he was diagnosed to have Autism Spectrum Disorder or ASD.
I was advised to send Kal-El to therapies but I am hesitant because it is very costly. If ever, we need to spend a minimum of Php700.00 (~$14.00) per session. He needs to attend sessions 3 times a week for 6 months or so. Doing the math of this, sending him to such is way beyond our means.
Currently, I am a full time mother and is dependent to my husband’s monthly income. I am trying to fit his salary for our home bills and Kal-El’s post-liver transplant medications and Kal-el attending therapies would mean additional expenses.
In behalf of Kal-el and my family, I am again asking for your support for our baby superman. We will greatly appreciate any amount you can give to help us send him to therapies.
Thank you in advance. God will be the one to return your generosity ten folds.
