Team Fernando

My son, Fernando, is a Lil Angel born with an immune deficiency called Chronic Granulomatous Disease (CGD) ~ a genetic disorder in which certain immune system cells are unable to kill some types of bacteria which leads to ongoing and severe infection(s). Diagnosed at 6 months old ~ Currently battling Acute Bacterial Pneumonia, Chronic Aspergillus Infection, & Rhinovirus Upper Respiratory Infection since June 2011 and now Diagnosed with Osteomyelitis of the Ribs (Infection in the Rib Bones), he has transition to Palliative Care. Palliative care is an approach that improves the quality of life of patients and their families facing the problem associated with this life-threatening illness, through the relief of suffering and treatment of pain. (Keeping him comfortable & pain free is the plan). With my heart upon my sleeve, it's now time to begin funeral peparations. Science has brought us this far...(Thank you to all the Doctors & Specialists!)...Now it's in God's hands & No matter where this journey will take us...We will never let go of God's hand with the Power of Prayer, Faith, Love, & Hope the Power of God will see us through. Due to the severity of his illness, Lil Man Fernando does not qualify for a life insurance policy and the funeral expenses are coming out of pocket. Like the true meaning of his name, "Fernando," he is Courageous, an Adventurer, a Conqueror, and a Leader who brightens our world with his Smile & Laughter sharing Great Happiness. Any donation will greatly be appreciated. From my Family to yours, we "Thank You with Lots of Love!" Thank you for your Time, Effort, Love, Prayers, & Support. ~xoxo~
