A New ear for Davi

$20,229 of $75,000 goal

Raised by 130 people in 16 months
As a lot of you know, Davi was born with Microtia and Atresia on his right ear. Microtia/Atresia is a rare congenital condition that occurs in about 1 in every 8,000 births. Davi’s  ear is underdeveloped and his ear canal is closed. He was also born with another condition called Hemifacial microsomia that is a condition in which the lower half of one side of the face is underdeveloped and does not grow normally. The syndrome varies in severity, but always includes the maldevelopment of the ear and the mandible. 
 Davi has seen several doctors and have received different options and opinions. Mom and Dad have done lots of research and found Dr. Lewin in Santa Monica, CA that specializes in Medpor surgery. Medpor ear surgery is the newest technique in ear surgery for microtia. It consist of creating an implant which will look like an ear, as close to the look of Davi’s left ear which is normal.  If you'd like to know more on how it works in medical terms and view the actual process, please visit Dr. Lewin's website at www.microtiaearsurgery.com. Unfortunatley, the surgery is not covered by insurance and the cost is roughly $75,000. The process also requires Davi to stay in the area for 7 days for post-op visits.
His surgery is scheduled for this comming December, because he is at the ideal age. So we would like to come up with this sum of money until the end of November.
We are asking for your support to help us get an ear for Davi and help him live his life to the fullest. If you can help at all we would greatly appreciate it. Please help make his wish come true! Thank you!!

Muito de vocês sabem que o Davi nasceu com uma condição chamada Microtia/Atresia em sua orelha direita. Microtia/Atresia e uma condição rara que acontece em 1 em cada 8,000 criancas. A orelha do Davi e subdesenvolvida e seu canal auditivo é fechado. Ele também nasceu com uma outra condição chamada Microsomia facial. Condição na qual a parte inferior da face não desenvolve completamente e não cresce normalmente. Essa Sindrome varia em severidade, mas sempre inclui má formação da mandíbula e orelha.
Davi consultou vários médicos e recebeu várias opiniões e opcões. Mamãe e Papai fizeram muitas pesquisas e encotraram Dr Lewin em Santa Mônica, California, que é uma especialista em cirurgia de Microtia/Atresia. Medpor é a mais nova técnica em cirurgia de microtia. É a criação de um implante que será igual a sua orelha esquerda que é normal. Se você gostaria de saber mais sobre Cirurgia de Microtia em termos medicos, por favor visite o site da Dr Lewin www.microtiaearsurgery.com.
Infelizmente o nosso seguro de saúde não cobre os custos dessa cirugia que será mais ou menos $75,000.
O processo também requer que o Davi fique na cidade por 7 dias para visitas pós operatórias.
A cirurgia dele está marcada para dezembro próximo devido ao fato dele estar na idade ideal. Então, gostaríamos de arrecadar esta soma até o fim de novembro.
Nós estamos pedindo seu suporte para nos ajudar a dar uma orelhinha ao Davi e ajudá-lo a  viver sua vida em abundância.
Se você puder ajudar, nós seremos extremamente gratos.
Por favor nos ajude a fazer o desejo do Davi se tornar realidade!
Obrigado!

Davi my son! Today once again you showed me what a tough boy you are. I know you had a very difficult time at the dentist. I am super impressed on your capacity of understanding when we explain the adversities you will face, and also on you trusting us we are never sugar coting your challenges. This gives me confidence you will get through the surgery and recovery with flying colors Love, Dad
