P100 for Nathan’s heart

Quoted from Maria Alumbo
I am begging for your help and only your help. Zachery Mc Nathan Alvarado (Nate) was born on May 27, 2010 with a congenital heart disease called “tetralogy of fallot”. He is otherwise known as a “blue baby” because usually babies with this condition has bluish skin or has a “Tet Spell”. Actually, it is amiracle he surviving. Nate’s heart is not pumping ANY BLOOD TO HIS LUNGS AT ALL (he has no pulmonary arteries) and the reason he is alive now is because THERE ARE SMALL VEINS CONNECTING FROM HIS HEART DIRECTLY TO HIS LUNGS GIVING HIM OXYGENATED BLOOD. Veins that are not supposed to be there.It’s the miracle of life!
Now, He needs at least 1 Million Philippine Pesos or USD 23,000 to have his surgery as soon as possible (UNIFOCALIZATION) or else my nephew might not survive his first year. (That’s only for his surgery on his heart alone) Worst is, he also has a dilated kidney. (Which needs another big amount for the surgery)
Before he turned 3 months, he has been in and out of the hospital because of his condition, he has been having repeated Urinary Track Infection and tet spells and needs an oxygen tank for standby. My nephew was born and IS big and healthy, he has a big chance of surviving the surgery for his heart and kidney but the problem is my sister and her husband do not have enough financial resources for his operation.
They had a considerable amount set aside but due to the bills this is fast depleting, their last hospital visit cost them more than P 100,000.00. We are asking the help of our friends and family abroad and locally and we don’t care if we are called callous. We need a kind soul to please help us. We promise we will pay it back If it is in your capacity to give us a loan, Slowly but surely though we know we can’t guarantee anything. Of course, how can you just trust a complete stranger but I assure you, my sister and his husband both have jobs they can pay it back. I did this just so that the baby can have a better chance to live hoping and praying that someone out there will answer our call.They have already started getting rid of their properties just to save his life and it’s a very difficult time for themANY AMOUNT WILL DO. It’s good karma and you know you helped. Even if you don’t believe in God, someone out there greater than you will reward you in this life, in kind or in blessings.
