It was found that he has a Large VSD/PDA; severe coarctation which several attempts to correct at The Matter Hospital in Nairobi by Dr. Christine Jowi were not fruitful due to lack of proper equipment to handle the tender operation. She recommended that we take baby Sylvester to India for specialised treatment at Fortis hospital. This however will cost us USD 7000 to conduct the High Risk VSD Closure Coarctation Repair.
We have since exhausted our insurance and savings during attempts to treat the baby here in Kenya and are making this appeal to our trusted friends, family and colleagues to extend us a hand of support to help raise this amount for baby Sylvester for his treatment abroad.
Your support in any small way will help keep our only son, baby Sylvester alive through this critical correction surgery. We humbly request your help during this difficult time and will forever be indebted to you for this very kind gesture.
