Have you ever found yourself wishing that you could believe in miracles, that you could see a transformation with your own eyes? Or, better yet, wishing that you could be a part of making one happen?
With that question in mind, I'd like to share my story.
My name is Mailia, and I'd like to say thank you. Thank you for taking the time to read my story. Thank you for your willingness to be a part of my healing and apart of something miraculous.
You see, I was born with an undiagnosed heart defect, which led to a rare disease called Eisenmenger's Syndrome, a severe heart condition that led to elevated blood pressure in my lungs causing Pulmonary Hypertension.
After living with Eisenmenger's for most of my life, I cannot receive a double heart and lung transplant, and my condition has been called incurable. But my familyhas not given up. My parents have taught me to believe not only that I can be healed, but that my life can be a gift to others.
I want to live so that I can help others with Eisenmenger's Syndrome and other heart and lung conditions to have hope and healing. I want to be the one who beats the odds and helps others believe that they can, too. I'm just one person fighting for her life. But I know I'm not alone.
My mom and dad have done everything in their power to help me. Because of the high pressures in my lungs, they moved our family to sea level to buy me time for technology to catch up with my illness. They have paid extraordinary costs for many different therapies. They have sent letters, made calls, started my website MailiasMiracle.com, and used up all their retirement savings to help fund my treatments. In short, they've never given up hope that one day, I might be cured and able to leave my wheelchair and oxygen tanks behind.
And because you're listening to me now and because you care you're already a part of my healing.
I've also become an advocate for Adult Stem Cell therapy, since I've had several successful treatments that dramatically improved both my lung pressures and my quality of life. In order for me to receive just one of these complex treatments, my parents, friends, and supporters need to raise thousands of dollars each time. The fact that I've had several of these treatments is something for which I'm thankful every day.
I love my stem cells they're a part of me, my own cells that science (and a little bit of magic) multiplied. They have healed and protected my heart and lungs, and they continue to be a vital part of my healing.
My cardiologists and heart surgeon recommend another adult stem cell treatment before they can safely proceed with corrective heart surgery. A validation that the science and technology is working!
And so I ask and I invite you to please help me receive the therapies and treatments that continue to give me life. My dream is to heal and be healed, and so I ask you to contribute any amount that you can give here on my GoFundMe page to make this dream a reality and be a part of my miracle.
I also would appreciate your friendship or friending me on my Facebook page MailiasMiracle
