ALONE WE CAN DO LITTLE - TOGETHER WE CAN DO A LOT

My name is Christina Santonia, from the Philippines.

I'm a mother to an 18months old baby girl, I was inspired by her innocence to help those in need and help the impoverished families in my own little way.

Help for Baby Sara that diagnosed with Choledochal Cyst Secondary Biliary Atresia

This is Chailie Francine “Baby Sara” Pineda, from Las Pinas, Philippines. She just turns one last 7th of May 2020, a little yet absolute warrior fighting for her second chance at life.

She was diagnosed of Choledochal Cyst Secondary Biliary Atresia at 5 months old and now at the end stage of the disease that needs an urgent Liver Transplant.

Choledochal cysts (CDCs) and biliary atresia (BA) are rare pediatric hepatobiliary anomalies that require surgical intervention due to increased risk of malignancy and liver failure, respectively. In infants, choledochal cysts usually lead to obstruction of the bile ducts and retention of bile. This leads to jaundice and an enlarged liver. If the obstruction is not relieved, permanent damage may occur to the liver - scarring and cirrhosis - with the signs of portal hypertension (obstruction to the flow of blood through the liver) and ascites (fluid accumulation in the abdomen).

Baby Sara was abandoned by her biological parents

At the tender age of fewer than 5 months old, baby Sara has endured more than most.

Apart from this devastating condition of her, she has a heartbreaking story. Baby Sara was abandoned by her biological parents yet a compassionate family protects and takes care of her.

This amazing foster family showing her all the courage and strength in the world, they love her very much as their own, her grandpa and grandma take care of her full-time and has been doing all kinds of fundraising for 7 months now but they are nowhere near the cost of the transplant.

Usage of the funds

Here in the Philippines, liver transplantation cost around 4-5M which is very hard to raise in a shorter time.

Her family is putting their faith not only in God but in the goodness that still reigns in each one of us. We need to raise at least $10,000 - any amount you can spare out of the greatness of your hearts and your abundance could save her life. Let us be God's instrument in answering what the family has been praying for her.

Let's help Baby Sara win this battle

Beside airfunding, I also share some of my plea on Facebook and initiative in doing a raffle for a cause and Baby Sara as beneficiary.

Let us help baby Sara win this battle she's been bravely fighting ever since she was a few months old. Let us help her get that life-saving liver transplant in India, where the surgery is less inexpensive.

Baby Sara doesn't have the luxury of time and we can see that as the body is quickly deteriorating due to complications.

I am praying that we could help her see and experience beautiful things in life she deserves.

Thank you for your generous hearts! With love and gratitude, Christina
