The story (in short):

When we thought that we can now focus on Yana's recovery and development, we found that Yana will need another major surgery. Recently, she has been diagnosed with Craniosynostosis, a condition where the sutures in her skull have closed prematurely--limiting the space for her growing brain to occupy which jeopardizes her quality of life and development. She will be treated around early February. The extent of her case requires surgery from both Neurosurgeon and a Plastic Surgeon which we are told will cost at least Php 500,000 on doctor's fees alone. We are also expected to have follow-up consultations which might include more therapy sessions on top of what she's already taking. The surgery will take a full day to complete and she will need to be confined for at least 2 weeks as she recovers (if everything goes well). We are going to move mountains to get her the treatment and care she needs, but we will NOT turn away any help that's given to us. The extra help will all go to her medical expenses after the surgeries.

Yana's Medical History Thus Far:

  • October 2020 - She had a VP Shunt procedure to treat her Hydrocephalus. Unfortunately, she acquired a hospital-related infection that required her to be admitted to the ICU for around 1 week. She fought off the infection and was released from the ICU. However, she was later diagnosed with Patent Ductus Arteriosus (PDA) and was suspected to have Down Syndrome.
  • December 2020, her Chromosomal Tests reported that she did NOT have any genetic disorders, ruling out down syndrome.
  • February 2021, her Cardiologist confirmed that after a thorough 2D Echo Scan, her PDA had resolved on its own, ruling out the need for any interventions.
  • March 2022, she underwent laparoscopic bilateral inguinal hernia repair which took 1 day to accomplish.
  • In September 2022, she was admitted to the hospital for severe pneumonia due to Covid. She was admitted for 6 days.
  • In October 2022, she was examined by a Developmental Pediatrician and was recommended to undergo an intensive Speech Therapy program.
  • In December 2022, she had a CT scan to check the status of her shunt but the results reported that she had craniosynostosis.

In the end, gratitude

We thank you for your donations in the past and for your continued prayers and support since then. We are honored and humbled to be the recipient of such generosity. It's difficult to express how grateful we are for all of you. These have allowed us to continue to be strong for Yana and for each other.

We believe that Yana's story is a story of finding courage in a community. She is God's gift to us, and through her, God wants to manifest His will.

Thank you and may you and your family be blessed!

Love,

Geoff & Jewels
