Xavi Ximon is a 3 month old baby born with heart defects. He is currently admitted in Philippine Children's Medical Center at the Pediatric ICU and is intubated because of severe pneumonia.
When he overcomes this pneumonia sickness, he will need to gain weight to 5kgs (currently he is 3.1kgs) within 2 months , because his heart needs to be operated on, (PDA at 4cm) otherwise it might be inoperable if not corrected right away.
The funding will help us pay for the medical expenses now, and if we get more, the heart surgery can be done as scheduled.
Children with heart defects are very prone to pneumonia, so if he survives his sickness now, an immediate heart operation will lessen the risk of him getting pneumonia again.
We knock on your kind generous hearts to help us, as we cannot afford these treatments that needs to get done in such a short span of time.
