Help Helianny fight for her life!

As soon as you meet Helianny you will understand why her family and everyone else that comes across her story describe her as a fighter. Since Helianny was inside her mother’s womb she has been fighting for her life and winning. Please help her continue the battle for her life! Helianny Buitrago turned three years old on August 21st. She’s from San Cristobal, Venezuela. In the fourth month of pregnancy, Helianny’s parents found out that her development had been affected by Amniotic Band Syndrome (she became entangled in fibrous string-like amniotic bands) which caused her severe craniofacial deformities and other health problems. Doctors recommended terminating the pregnancy. Her parents Soleannys and Henry decided to move forward with the pregnancy out of respect for the life of their baby and because like any other parent they loved her already. Helianny was born at thirty-nine weeks via C-section and spent thirteen weeks under intensive care. Helianny clung to life by the hand of God Almighty and today is a living miracle. She is an icon of unconditional love and proof that love is the best medicine. I invite you to be part of this beautiful story of faith and love. Your contributions will help make the dream of craniofacial reconstruction a reality. Time is crucial!

Diagnosis: Amniotic Band Syndrome, hydrocephalus, absence of eyeballs and nasal pyramid, cleft lip, patent ductus arteriosus, adactyly (absence of fingers and toes), clubbed foot.

About the administrator: My name is Rocio Avila Dumey. I live in Burleson, Texas. I created this campaign with authorization from Helianny’s parents (Soleannys and Henry). I agreed to help them in any way I can after knowing about Helianny’s story and becoming friends with her mom. The main purpose of this campaign is to raise funds to pay for Helianny’s surgeries. The most important one is craniofacial reconstruction but she will eventually need eye prosthetics, nasal pyramid and lip reconstruction and of course her family needs help in covering other expenses (medical studies and consultations, physical therapy to improve her quality of life, medicine). The proceeds will arrive to her family through bank transfers and/or money exchange services.

Tan pronto como conozcas a Helianny entenderás por qué su familia y todos los que descrubren su historia la describen como una guerrera. Desde que Helianny estaba dentro del útero de su madre, ella ha estado luchando por su vida y ella ha ganado. ¡Por favor ayúdala a continuar la batalla por su vida! Helianny Buitrago cumplió tres años el 21 de agosto. Ella es de San Cristóbal, Venezuela. En el cuarto mes de embarazo, los padres de Helianny descubrieron que su desarrollo se había visto afectado por el síndrome de banda amniótica (se enredó en bandas fibrosas amnióticas) lo que le provocó deformidades craneofaciales severas y otro tipo de problemas de salud. Los médicos recomendaron terminar el embarazo. Sus padres Soleannys y Henry decidieron seguir adelante con el embarazo por respeto a la vida de su bebé y porque, como cualquier otro padre, ya la amaban. Helianny nació a las treinta y nueve semanas por cesárea y pasó trece semanas bajo cuidados intensivos. Helianny se aferró a la vida de la mano de Dios Todopoderoso y hoy es un milagro viviente. Ella es un ícono de amor incondicional y una prueba de que el amor es la mejor medicina. Te invito a ser parte de esta hermosa historia de fe y amor. Sus contribuciones ayudarán a hacer realidad el sueño de la reconstrucción craneofacial. ¡El tiempo es crucial!

Sobre la administradora: Mi nombre es Rocío Avila Dumey. Vivo en Burleson, Texas. Creé esta campaña con la autorización de los padres de Helianny (Soleannys y Henry). Acepté ayudarlos de cualquier manera que pueda después de conocer la historia de Helianny y hacerme amiga de su mamá. El objetivo principal de esta campaña es recaudar fondos para pagar las cirugías de Helianny. La más importante es la reconstrucción craneofacial, pero eventualmente necesitará prótesis oculares, reconstrucción de la pirámide nasal y de labio. Además, su familia necesita ayuda para cubrir otros gastos (estudios y consultas médicas, terapia física para mejorar su calidad de vida, medicamentos). Los ingresos llegarán a su familia a través de transferencias bancarias.
