THE STORY:

(Dubai, UAE) - Filipino parents of a 6-week old baby boy are desperate for help as their little child is suffering from hydrocephalus , in other words an abnormal condition where fluid accumulates in the back part of the brain.
Hydrocephalus is one of the most common birth defects and affects one out of every 500 births annually according to the US-based National Hydrocephalus Foundation. If left untreated, infants with hydrocephalus can develop significant brain damage, delayed development, blindness and ultimately death.
Jason, father of the baby, is a machine operator on a salary of less than USD25 a day is struggling to afford even the initial medical shunt treatment of USD 1500 that his son urgently requires. A shunt is a tube and valve system that is surgically implanted inside the brain to drain and divert the excess fluid to another part of the body.
Additionally, the family needs at least USD16,000 to pay for Lance’s outstanding medical bill at Latifa Hospital (Dubai).
If we are all together, we can help to save the child's life.
