Baby Jayjay – Support my Spine
|Aldred Josh Lorenzo was born on August 04,2010
My sister, Cecille was browsing through the net late last night when she came across the facebook page of her college classmate Jennifer Lorenzo. We saw the pictures of her very cute baby Jayjay and we where grief-stricken to find out about his condition.
Jay-jay is suffering from Meningocele. A developmental birth defect caused by the incomplete closure of the spinal cord. This is a life threatening condition. He suffers from the incomplete growth of his spine and a cyst formed in his lower back. He could not totally moved his lower limbs (but hopefully he can walk if a surgery will be done). His head is under observation if it would not enlarge, if so, a tube will be placed underneath his skull to avoid the enlargement and infections.
Jay-jay needs to undergo a series of hospitalization, medications and surgery. The cyst and the situation of his spine could worsen if not treated early. The surgery itself would cost Php250, 000.00 (medications and hospital bills not yet included). The family’s financial situation could not afford any of it but they will do anything to fight for their baby’s life.
Tears just welled out of my eyes when i saw this photo of Baby Jayjay and i can only imagine the magnitude of his mother’s suffering but more so, the magnitude of her love for her baby, and i know she will do anything in her power to fight for his baby’s life.
Am trying to help the best that i know how, by spreading the words about Baby Jayjay and hopefully finding good samaritans like you to help his family in this time of need. An organization, SPINE, has been established to raise funds for Baby Jayjay and here are a few simple ways we can do to help extend this little angels life..
