Even A Cent Counts For My Carlisle

$3,690 of $10k goal

Raised by 65 people in 40 months


Hello everyone! This is Marie, Carlisle Von Patrick's mother, and let me tell you the summary on why I'm putting this page up.

Carlisle Von Patrick was born as a healthy bouncing baby boy on the morning of March 31st, 2012. Being a single mom who carried him for the whole nine months by myself, I was so overwhelmed that he came out as healthy as I prayed for. Crying out loud, rosy cheeks, birthmark. Everything seems to be perfect.

I made sure that he'll not be hurt, no insect will bite him. He was present on monthly check-ups, up-to-date with his vaccines.

On his fourth month, my world froze when we rushed him to ER due to viral meningitis. I thought that would be the end of my unexplainable happiness in life, but thank God that my boy survived.

Series of follow-ups and tests were done and we were in and out of the hospital due to his inconsistent nausea, vomiting, and fever. Doctors thought that his meningitis came back, until one decided to do cranial ultrasound on him, and everything weakens me after that.

Carlisle Von Patrick has been diagnosed with Craniopharyngioma (brain tumor) last February 2013 after his MRI procedure and went on his first brain surgery to remove the tumor last June 2013 at University of Santo Tomas Hospital. His life was saved, but his eyesight wasn't. Numerous confinements happened until last May 2015, he had his second brain surgery. Last August 2015, he was able to finish 30 sessions of IMRT (radiation therapy) to prevent the tumor from growing back. He's undergoing constant follow up checks to maintain healthy living.

Help us raise any amount to help Carlisle Von Patrick in his hospital needs. Every cent counts for us. Each confinement costs a lot and as a single parent, it is very difficult for me to raise a specific amount in a short span of time.

Please visit my blog, my Facebook page or Carlisle Von Patrick's for additional information. You can also like his official Facebook page, Even A Cent Counts For Carlisle. We would love to hear from you.

It has been six months since my last update, and that was from the time that we were still confined. Carlisle has been doing fine for the past months except that he still needs to go for another surgery to remove the infected shunt from his head. Other than that, he remains as goofy and makulit and mapanakit as before. :)

We're reaching out to ask for your help for another craniowarrior named Aden. He's a two-year-old boy diagnosed few weeks ago. Unfortunately, as per his mom Adrienne, he now struggles to balance when walking, to express himself in words, and just generally be that hyper toddler we now he ought to be. Please share his GoFundMe page: gofundme.com/helpforadenlyle.

Your prayers for these kiddie warriors will go a long way! God bless everyone! :)

Getting stressed out thinking that we might spend the holidays here in the hospital, though I'm still hoping and praying that we can go home before then. Carlisle continues to have no problems physically - still happy and playful. Clinically, he's still on Meropenem antibiotics to treat the abscess found on his brain through MRI. Next plan is to remove the infected ommaya reservoir from his brain and check if he can cope up without draining since the monster is almost out due to the radiation therapy sessions that we did to kill it.

A share of this post would really go a long way. Thank you so much for everyone's help! Please don't forget to keep Carlisle in your thoughts and prayers!

After being antibiotic-free for a week, Carlisle's back to taking another week of it due to some abscess found in his last MRI. Haven't had a word with his neurosurgeons yet for the official result, but hopefully, it's better than our last since we also want to know if the radiation therapy sessions were effective. Please don't forget to keep Carlisle in your thoughts and prayers!

"If you abide in me, and my words abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you." John 15:7

Good news to everyone - the specimen culture turned out NEGATIVE! No bacteria growth has been noted for five days. He got no IV line already, his medicines are all shifted to oral, and now we're still waiting for the doctors' decisions whether he needs to undergo surgery to replace the infected shunt or they will allow us to be home. Whatever their decision will be, I am still thankful to the Lord, Nuestro Padre Jesús Nazareno, for answering our prayers.

A share of this post would really go a long way. Thank you so much for everyone's help!
