Hi Everyone! First of, thank you in advance to those who are willing to help my nephew, Baby Jett and their family during this crucial time. I’m Apple Capinpin, I am residing here in Calgary, Alberta with my family. I am making this GOFUNDME for my nephew back home in the Philippines.
A little background about him and his family,
Baby Jett is the youngest son of my cousin Karen Adrineda Ramirez. He has 2 older brothers who loves him dearly.
My cousin and her family got hit pretty bad with the pandemic happening all over the world. It affected their small business which was their source of income. I was contacted by karen about 2 weeks ago asking for prayers and just to inform me about what happened to baby Jett ( our family is that close to one another). She mentioned that they have to rush him to the emergency room due to high fever and lack of appetite. They were worried at first that baby Jett might have contracted the COVID, so being responsible parents, theytook him to the hospital and figure out what was wrong. They did random test from blood work to urine test( the normal test they do to figure out the reason for the fever) and after the tests was done and the results were in, it showed that his white blood count and platelet were very low than normal.
With that being said, they had to stay and monitor his white blood count and platelet every now and then. They stayed in the hospital for a week and baby Jett was given almost 5 bags of platelet in that span of time. After a week, his white blood count and platelet went up, and they were released from the hospital. After 3 days, they went to see the doctor for follow up check ups and to see if he was improving. Sadly, his platelet and white blood count went down again.
to make the story short, they were able to do a diagnosis on him and it is called “ ANDOPLASMIC- ANEMIA”. Their doctor said that he need to under-go a BONE MARROW ASPIRATION and BIOPSY to test for leukaemia. For anyone who doesn’t know this, this test is very sensitive and needed a specialist to do the procedure. The test can only be done in St. Luke’s Medical in Metro Manila. They don’t have the specialist to do this in their province. The test alone costs around P30,000- P50,000 pesos ( $800- $1,300 cad dollars).
The very recent update was that they rushed him again to the emergency today cause his fever went back again and his platelet count dropped to 20,000 (normal count for kids ages 3 is 100,000) which made the doctor rushed them to have the test done as soon as possible to avoid Internal Bleeding. Our entire family has chipped in but not close enough to the amountthey needed for the test and the medications. That is why i am REACHING OUT to all of you.Baby Jett has so much to look forward to in LIFE. We are knocking on each and everyone’s heart, for the spirit of Christmas coming up, anyamount is MUCH APPRECIATED!
If you can’t, we are not forcing anyone, but would you mind adding him to your PRAYERS AS WELL. We believe in power of the Heavenly Father, let’s pray even harder!
Thank you so much and Godbless you all!
