Psalm 30:2
“Lord, My God, I called to you for help and you healed me.”

Our sweet, beautiful baby girl, Rebecca aka "Becca", is currently in the pediatric ICU in CHOC (Children's Hospital Orange County) literally battling for her life. Her condition initially started out with the influenza virus last week. Since her immune system was compromised, she developed "strep group A" which led to pneumonia soon after. She was rushed to the ER at Hoag Hospital-Irvine on Thursday evening 11/10/2016. The infection then spread into her bloodstream causing her body to go into septic shock. Her heart and her lungs were greatly affected. She was then transported to CHOC-PICU which was no easy task. The strain on her heart caused her to go into cardiac arrest, which required 25 minutes of CPR. She has had multiple close calls and has undergone multiple procedures, including the attachment of an ECMO machine which is acting as artificial heart and lungs. Although many reports have been negative for the family, she continually progresses and gets better! But as minutes turn to hours and days turns into weeks the financial stresses are starting to become apparent.

Rebecca's Mom (Maria) who is a ER Nurse at Hoag Hospital & her Father (Vince) a Self-Employed Contractor have been at her bedside ever since. Although we have faith that she will have a Full Recovery despite the negative reports, we are well aware that the road to recovery may be a very long road. The parents also made it known that they will be at their Becca's side every step of the way.  Knowing that the world doesn't stop for anyone when storms arise we want to at least help lessen their burden. This family is already emotionally devasted ...we want to make sure that they don't become financially devestated! So we are calling upon those who can help & bless this wonderful family! Whatever the Good Lord puts in your heart to give will be given to family to help pay for any medical expenses, lodging expenses, loss of income, etc. Your blessing & prayers to this family will be greatly appreciated!

Rebecca is 8 years old (Yellow Bumblebee on the Left) and has a twin sister named Leah who wants desperately for her "Becca" to wake up and play...she also has an older sister & brother (Hayley & Vinci). Rebecca has been through more than others see in a lifetime. Becca is a fighter, a warrior, and a conqueror! We know she will be walking, talking and being the vibrant lil' girl she is very soon!

Also we would like to take this opportunity to Thank the Good Lord for the wonderful Doctors, Nurses, & Staff members at both Hoag Hospital-ER Irvine & CHOC for your wonderful care & hospitality! You guys are nothing short of AMAZING!

We Thank You all in advance for your Help & Prayers!

Respectfully,
Perez-Macabuhay Family

It saddens me to announce that our dear Becca was called back home to our Lord Jesus! She had passed at 10:46am 11/20/2016 due to complications of swelling of the brain. We thank you all for your love, support and prayers! We still thank the Lord for every second we had with Becca even these pass 10 days! She fought a valiant fight! We now ask that Becca can pray for all of us cause she will be in good care with both of her grandparents in heaven!

Please keep Vince, Maria, Hayley, Vinci, & Leah all in your prayers!

Our language can not provide the words, nor our souls supply the emotions, to express, in any meaningful way, the mortal ache in the hearts of this wonderful family. I am so very, very saddened.
