THE STORY:

Para mi sobrina en el nombre de su madre. This is for my niece on behalf of her mom.

It's in Spanish & English.

Thank you in advance and God Bless you all for your support.

ESPAÑOL

Mi nombre es Fiorella, soy de Perú y soy la mamá de Emma. Emma es una bebita de 13 meses risueña, gordita y que nos llena de amor. Cuando nació la diagnosticaron con Síndrome de Edwards (Trisomia 18), una condición genética por la cual en lugar de tener 46 cromosomas tiene 47 y que es considerada "incompatible con la vida". Emma al nacer pesó 1840 grs y midió 43 cms, pasó 5 semanas en UCI por su bajo peso y problemas respiratorios, pero salió adelante. Nos la llevamos a casa para amarla y "esperar", como nos dijeron los médicos, dado que no tendía mucha expectativa de vida. Sin embargo, Emma ha logrado sorprender a muchos médicos y personas alrededor. Ahora ella pesa casi 11 kgs y mide poco más de 75 cms, le encanta que juegues con ella y la llenes de besitos. Emma ha superado muchas batallas y ha alcanzado metas que muchos médicos nos creyeron posible. Ha pasados por 2 operaciones y, aún así, siempre se mantuvo fuerte y sonriente. Hoy libramos una nueva batalla junto a Emma y es que hace poco le detectaron un tumor en el higado, un Hepatoblastoma (el tumor cancerígeno más común en niños menores de 2 años). Debido a todos los gastos que se han tenido con Emma desde su nacimiento es difícil afrontar todo lo que viene con el cáncer. Lo recaudado será para pagar la operación y todo lo que se necesite en su tratamiento. Confiamos en que superaremos esta prueba.

ENGLISH

I´m Fiorella, Emma´s mother, from Peru. Emma is a beautiful 13 month old baby, a very joyful and chubby little girl that fills us with love. Emma was born with Edwards Syndrome (Trisomy 18), a genetic condition; meaning she has 47 chromosomes instead of 46 like we all have. This condition is considered "incompatible with life". Emma was born with only 4 pounds and 17 inches long, she was placed in ICU for 5 weeks because of her low weight and respiratory problems, but she made it through. We took her home on the 5th week to love her and "wait", just as the doctors told us to, as she had little life expectancy. However, Emma has managed to surprise many doctors and against all odds she is now 24 pounds and roughly 30 inches, she loves to play with us and be kissed by her bearded dad. Emma has endured many battles and has gone through many challenges that doctors and science did not think possible. She has had 2 surgeries so far, but even so she is always smiling and strong. Now Emma has a new battle to fight, doctors recently found a tumor in her liver, (the most common cancerous tumor found on children two years old or less.) Because of all the expensive medical treatments and care Emma has and needs; it is very difficult for us to face and pay for all that is needed for this new treatment that insurance does not cover here in Peru. All that we can collect will be used to pay for all Emma's upcoming surgeries and treatments. We are confident Emma will make it through.

Thank you and God Bless
