Eye surgery for baby Paula

Paula started an incredible journey since she was in her mom's belly. In week 13 of pregnancy the doctors told us that she would not be born, she had too many complications according to their experience. By week 30, the doctors confirmed that she would be born but with hydrocephalus among other problems. The prognosis of her development was reserved, the doctor told us: Take the word "normal" out of your head.
Imagine naming a baby after the doctor tells you will not be born... Despite this, we kept the faith and decided to wait patiently.

Paulita was not only born very well; she is a happy baby. Of all the inconveniences of pregnancy, just one problem remained in the right eye. She can not see due to a adhesion between the iris and the cornea.

Doctors in Paula's hometown said nothing could be done. However today, at six months of age, she has an opportunity to change this through a surgery in the United States that will include a cornea transplant, with which she could see.

The fundraising will only cover the medical expenses. 

There is no such thing as a small help.




Paula inició un viaje increíble desde que estaba en la barriga de mamá. En la semana 13 de embarazo los médicos nos dijeron que no nacería, tenía demasiadas complicaciones. Por la semana 30, nos confirmaron que sí nacería pero con hidrocefalia entre otros problemas. El pronóstico de su desarrollo era reservado, el doctor nos dijo: Quítense de la cabeza la palabra “normal”.

Imagina ponerle nombre a una bebe que su médico te indica que no nacerá… Pese a ello, mantuvimos la fe y decidimos esperar con paciencia.

Paulita no solo nació muy bien sino que es muy feliz. De todos los inconvenientes del embarazo únicamente quedó un problema en el ojo derecho. No puede ver debido a una adherencia entre el iris y la cornea.

Los médicos en su ciudad dijeron que no habia nada que pudiera hacerse. Sin embargo hoy, a sus 6 meses de edad, Paula tiene una oportunidad para cambiar esto a través de una cirugía en Estados Unidos que incluirá un trasplante de cornea, con lo cual podría ver. 

La recaudación es solo para cubrir gastos médicos.
No hay ayuda pequeña.
