Hi, my name is Halim, I’m from Malaysia and now post doc at MIT since September 2011, my baby girl was born in October  2011 in Malaysia. Her name is Maryam, she  was born with big omphalocele (Wikipedia: abdominal wall defect in which the intestines, liver, and occasionally other organs remain outside of the abdomen in a sac because of a defect in the development of the muscles of the abdominal wall). It was treated conventionally with povidone and subject to repair later.

On May, I brought Maryam to US, on may 19 she was accidentally fall at home, she was admitted to quincy emergency medical to be observed, luckily she is doing fine and allow to go home after 6 hours.

She is fine until  on July 23rd she have severe vomiting and collapse in between and was admitted to emergency room, she later stable and being discharged, doctor diagnose her  with poisonous food, on August 3rd she have again severe vomiting and collapse and again was admitted to emergency room in Quincy medical center, her condition getting worst and they need to transfer her to emergency room in Massachusetts general hospital (MGH). They later transfer her to peadectrics ward, she was there for almost 5 days and being diagnose having malrotation intestine and need urgent surgery to repair that. They performed the operation on 21 August 2012. The operation when smoothly and she was discharged on 25 August 2012, she was admitted again to emergency room in MGH on 28 august 2012 due to severe vomiting  and drinking disorder. On September 6 , the doctor operate her stomach to put G tube due to drinking disorder, she was discharged from hospital on September 11, 2012.

I do have commercial insurance (Student and family plan), but surprisingly they deny coverage for any of the event above. It really upset, now the bill for that already reach almost USD 60,000.00 dollar. Obviously I cannot afford the bill. I’m really felt extremely upset and stress due to this problem, any help is really welcome.

My bank of America account is 0046 3800 2971 and my name is Abdul Halim Bin Mohd Yusof

Thanks a lot for your generosity.
