Baby Almeera's Medical Costs

$36,725 of $50,000 goal

Raised by 606 people in 22 months
Baby Almeera is 7-months old. She was rushed to hospital on Wednesday with a very high fever and respiratory distress. Her fontenelles were buldging. Tests later confirmed that she has severe pneumonia with sepsis. The pneumonia has caused inflammation around her heart. She is unable to breath without oxygen and she stopped breathing 3 times in one night. She has under gone a blood transfusion and they are doing further tests to investigate if she has a genetic blood disorder called Beta Thalassemia, which requires a specialist consultant. It may mean that Almeera will require ongoing monitoring and potential blood transfusions for the rest of her life.

Almeera's parents, Daniel an Australian and Sonia an Indonesian, initially thought that Almeera would be covered under Daniel's medical insurance, this however is not the case and the insurance company are refusing to cover her. With some improvement in her condition, she may need a medi vac back to Australia to seek further medical assistance. As you could imagine, all of this is coming at quite the cost and has put a financial strain on her family. Please help us ease the stress on Daniel and Sonia and support baby Almeera on her long road to recovery by donating.

Any left over funds  will be donated to the Princess Margaret Hospital for Children in Perth.

We thank you for your kind thoughts and donations during this difficult time.

Almeera's parents, Daniel and Sonia, would like to express their gratitude to all the family, friends and strangers for their support and generosity.

Their focus has been purely on Almeera, who's condition deteriorated yesterday. She was transferred to a Denpasar hospital in respiratory distress, following a diagnosis of pleural effusion and severe pneumonia.

Currently she has her breathing supported with a ventilator and is being kept sedated, her condition is unchanged.

Having only recently gained her Australian citizenship in the last few weeks, her illness unfortunately came at a time before she could be included under his medical insurance.

Daniel and Sonia are grateful for all of the medical assistance to date. To be close with family and friends, Daniel and Sonia would like Almeera to be transferred to Perth. The process of making this happen has commenced.
