Dr. Lea Aina Abrazaldo, a practicing medical doctor in one of the specialized hospitals in the Philippines (National Kidney and Transplant Institute), went home from work last May 30 and had a severe headache.
It was a brain hemorrhage secondary to a ruptured aneurysm which unfornately had a re-bleed prior to surgery.
Surgery was unsuccessful last May 31 with a GCS of only 5. As medical decompression and stabilization was prioritized, she showed some improvements (eye opening and minimal finger/hand movements) that raised her GCS score to 7.
On June 3, endovascular coiling was thought to be done to at least reduce the risk of another aneurysm rupture. Her family and friends reached out for financial assistance as per coil costs over $1000 - she needed at least 4 coils. God is so powerful and merciful, the endovascular coiling was performed succesfully on June 4.
As the doctors are observing and awaiting for the post-surgery result, Aina is mostly put under sedation. She continue to be in ICU to monitor her critical condition.
This GoFundMe account is created in behalf of Aina and her family who are in the Philippines (GoFundme not supported yet). Their finances are limited as Aina is the primary provider for her family. She lead her mother’s long battle of cancer too.
Aina lives thinking of other people. She has saved lives. It’s now her turn to be saved. There are more interventions needed to at least save her from being in critical condition.
Please let yourself count as one person who helped an AMAZING and SELFLESS doctor. Every dollar counts. No amount is too big or too small. Please support her through your prayers too. She is just starting her battle.
